At Wilkinson Sword we’ve always believed that only the finest tools will do when it comes to your shave.
That’s why we’ve spent so long staying one step ahead of your skin and developing one game-changing razor after another - delivering unbeatable comfort, astonishing precision and a glide so smooth that your skin thinks it’s being massaged, not shaved.
The importance of a well-chosen razor applies to any part of your body from your face to your legs - but making the right selection is never more important than when you’re shaving your most intimate areas.
Pubic hair is more coarse, more fast-growing and more downright stubborn than the other hair on your body, so it’s even more crucial to have a trusty razor that you’re sure is up to the task - waiting patiently in your bathroom for the day it’s called upon.
What’s more, all those nicks, cuts, bumps, razor burns and rashes that can come from a misjudged shave are even more irritating down below, whether you’re expecting company or just doing a bit of routine garden maintenance.
So why use any old razor when there’s plenty of specialist equipment available?
How to shave your pubic hair
It’s no secret that the ingredients of an effective shave are a carefully chosen (and carefully wielded) razor, total attention and a well-practised technique. For the last of these, you really can’t do much better than following the steps below on how to shave your pubic hair...
- Shower first to soften your pubic hair. Slightly damp hair will be easier to shave, and your softened skin will be less prone to irritation and redness.
- Trim your hair down to a manageable length first. This will mean you’re more likely to eventually end up with the precise length of hair you’re looking for, rather than an unexpectedly bald pubic region.
- Use shaving gel. This hydrates and protects your hair and skin, as well as giving you a smoother glide in an area where avoiding discomfort is crucial.
- Make sure your razor is up to the task. Not only do you need to pick the right tool, but you need to thoroughly inspect it if you’ve used it before. Dull blades or residue clogging the razor will make for irritated, red skin afterwards.
- Use light strokes and pull the skin taut. This keeps you in control and stops you from applying more pressure to your skin than you need to.
- Moisturise afterwards. As with any shave, this really is the icing on the cake that you really can’t do without. A gentle balm will soothe the skin and help it recover faster.
