Shaving with a razor consists of five simple steps, trim, soak, lather, shave, and moisturize.
Before you shave, start by giving your pubic hair a trim with scissors or electric clippers, go for a shower.
Try waiting until the end of your shower because the bath will help soften your hairs, making the shave easier and closer.
Use shaving cream or gel, which will form a protective barrier between the razor and sensitive skin. Do not use soap! It can dry out your skin and increase the possibility of irritation.
Beauty experts recommend shaving with a new razor while standing in the shower, with one leg up on the wall. Go slowly, pulling skin tightly before running the razor over the hair.
Remember to apply steady but gentle pressure with the razor. If the skin of a particular area is loose or very sensitive, you may want to try holding that area tight so that it does not get caught by the razor. Gently apply a moisturizer.
