Bikini shaving kit ideas can be tough. There’s salon waxing, at-home waxing and shaving are all options we’ve considered when it comes to grooming our bikini region. Where do I go, am I doing this properly and does this look stupid are just a few of the many questions we ask ourselves. A poorly planned hair-removal experience can leave us traumatized making us want to ditch the hot wax and razors. After loads of research on bikini shaving kits and proper bikini waxing guides, you’re sure to have smooth sailing after reading this article. Here are some easy hair-removal tips and tricks.
The Basic Looks
Just so we can cover our bases, there are several different looks you can achieve when it comes to your bikini area: around the edges, the landing strip and completely bare. Obviously a grooming kit for women, who want to achieve a polished look just for those hairs that wander outside your panty line, isn’t necessary. For those of you unfamiliar with the famous landing strip, all the hair except for a narrow vertical strip is removed. Usually the length and width is up to you. The third look is going completely bare, which is pretty straight forward. If you’re someone who loves to rock revealing lingerie and swimwear, I’m sure you opt for this choice.
Different Grooming Kits For Women
Shaving is the most inexpensive and popular method of pubic grooming. Nearly 23% of women over 18 shave. It requires just five steps: trim, soak, wash, shave and moisturize. It’s important to shave in the same direction your hair grows if you are using a vagina hair trimmer or any other grooming technique. If you are just starting out, you only need to shave once a week. Other than that, it’s your prerogative.
Don’t use disposable razors! You should be looking for razors with multiple blades, moisturizing strips and a head that pivots; Schick Quattro TrimStyle Razor and Bikini Trimmer is the shit. It’s got everything you need in one and is roughly $13. That’s nothing considering the fact you legit will have this forever; obviously you need to switch out the razor head every two weeks. The other popular vagina grooming kit is the Gillette Venus and Olay Bikini Kit. This one is cheaper and only costs $10. It’s got three razors and is a battery-less trimmer.
Waxing Bikini Shaving Kit
As you’ve probably figured out there are plenty of ways to approach waxing your bikini area. However, before every waxing session you should take ibuprofen or aspirin 30 minutes before to suppress any swelling and pain. A good waxing kit isn’t too difficult to get your hands on, just make sure read the instructions – please. If you’re heading to a salon, you’re in good hands, don’t worry. Here are epic ingrown hair eliminating methods: Bliss Hair Eliminating Pads, Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub, Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash and Claudalie Crushed Cabernet Scrub (fancy).
