If you are not up for getting your bikini area waxed, the easiest and most painless method of pubic hair removal is shaving. However, that is not to say that shaving does not come without consequences. If you shave sensitive areas, such as your pubic region, you run the risk of getting razor bumps. These small, itchy red bumps are typically caused by ingrown hairs. Unfortunately, getting a close shave is what usually leads to razor bumps. You can prevent painful bumps caused by shaving.
Carefully trim as much pubic hair as possible with the hair cutting scissors. Longer hair will get caught in the razor blades, causing pulling and discomfort.
Take a warm shower or bath for at least three minutes, then dry yourself off. Warm water softens the hair and skin, making razor bumps less likely.
Apply a generous amount of moisturizing shaving cream for your skin type in the opposite direction of hair growth. Allow the shaving cream to set for a few minutes.
Shave the hair in the direction of hair growth, or downward. Do not pull the skin taut while shaving, as this increases the likelihood of ingrown hairs that cause razor bumps, according to Go Ask Alice Health Services at Columbia University. Apply more shaving cream if necessary and shave until all of the hair is removed, rinsing the razor after every stroke.
Rinse the shaving cream with warm water, then pat your skin dry with a soft towel.
Apply a small amount of baby oil to the shaved region. Baby oil smooths the skin and prevents pimples and red bumps. If your skin is sensitive, apply a tiny amount of aloe vera gel to the area after using unscented baby oil.
