Private area care isn’t rocket science. Much less so is shaving the pubic hair surrounding the naughty bits. It just needs a little bit of diligence.
Our best intentions to make things right between our legs can sometimes go wrong. Negligence and careless behaviour is often the cause. However, a thoughtful effort while shaving our private area can help to avoid ending up with bleeding spots and itchiness caused by razor burns - a sure sign of a poorly executed self-care routine.
The good news is you can prevent this from happening. It’s a matter of how much you love to feel good about yourself and taking action in the direction of your private needs in a thoughtful manner.
In this post, you will find out what you have been doing wrong when shaving and how a minor change in your self-care habits can help avoid careless mistakes that are wrecking your sensitive skin in the private area.
Rushing to shave
Hasty skin-rubbing or scratching to get the job done will lead to bleeding caused by nicks and cuts. On top of that, it’s hard to determine what is the right amount of pressure to apply, which increases the risk of further damaging your skin. Then you’ll have another thing to worry about - stopping the bleeding.
Let’s propose something different.
When it’s time to blow the chaff away, the last thing to do is treat your private area like meat in a butcher’s shop. Instead, take a laid back approach and turn it into a sacred experience. Set aside some quality time for yourself when you can do the job unbothered by the outside world. Give it all your focus, time, and attention, and you will manifest results pleasing the eye when looking at yourself naked in the mirror.
Dull razor blades
Do you wonder why your razor is not cutting? When was the last time you bought a new one? No matter how thin your pubic hair is, it still chips away at the edges of your razor blades. If you’ve been using it for longer than a week, it’s probably best if you dispose of it and restock the inventory.
Apart from getting rusty, research says that old razors can also harbour bacteria. Imagine you cut yourself with it. The chances of your skin getting infected are much higher. Besides, it’s far more likely that you will cut yourself with a dull razor blade than a sharp one. So make sure you change them as often as possible to prevent your lipid layer from getting sliced.
Missing on important steps
The turmoil of our hectic days can sometimes get in the way of our self-care routine, making us want to achieve great results almost instantly and without hassle. That often leaves us feeling like we didn’t make the best use of the time spent taking care of our nether regions.
When it comes to private area care, though, being in a hurry might make us feel like our best intentions were in vain. Therefore, taking the time to prepare for the procedure, such as taking a hot bath and exfoliating the skin before shaving, will help you minimize the sense of discomfort that can potentially arise. It will help relax the skin and open up the pores, in which case the hair becomes loose, making it easy to get a close shave without shaving against the grain.
You might think there is very little you can do when it comes to shaving your private area. That is only as much true as you believe it to be, and letting such beliefs prevent you from doing your best to keep the naughty bits in check isn’t healthy. Instead, work on improving your routine, one step at a time. Soon, it will lead you to believe that, with a little bit of diligence, there is so much you can do, and there is so much you can be by doing small and healthy things for your privates.
