Many of us have struggled to find the perfect shaving routine that leaves our skin feeling smooth and irritation-free. But fear not, because I've compiled 9 game-changing shaving tips that will revolutionize your bikini area routine. From choosing the right razor to the best post-shave skin care practices, I've got you covered. So, let's dive in and say goodbye to those pesky bumps and discoloration for good! 

9 Shaving Tips For Less Bumps & Discoloration 

1. Use Sharp Razors

I prefer men razors because they are made to navigate around the chin, neck, nose, and cheekbones, they tend to be more sensitive to the curvature of your body so every hair can be easily reached. They're also sharper, have more blades, and are more effective. 

2. Shave in the Direction of Hair Growth

Shaving against the direction of hair growth can increase the likelihood of ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Instead, shave in the direction of hair growth to minimize irritation and reduce the risk of hairs curling back into the skin.

3. Always Exfoliate Before Shaving

I'm not sure who told you to exfoliate after shaving but, they are wrong. It doesn't make sense, if you think about it your skin becomes very sensitive after shaving. Why would exfoliate do it after? Exfoliating before shaving makes so much sense, it preps the skin for a cleaner shave. It helps the razor glide smoothly on your skin reducing the risks of razor bumps, ingrowns and discoloration.

4. Always Use the Glow Scrub when Exfoliating

The Glow Scrub from Veenourish is a brightening sugar scrub that you use before shaving. Not only does it help prep the skin for a smoother shave but, it also helps brighten and even out your skin tone down there. It's made with natural ingredients like turmeric, papaya, lemon, orange, tea tree and few more. It's very simple to use just massage it onto the skin for at least 30 seconds then, rinse it off and repeat 3 times a week. 

5. Never Shave Dry Skin

Apply a generous amount of shaving cream or gel to the bikini area before shaving. This helps to lubricate the skin, allowing the razor to glide smoothly and reducing friction. Look for products specifically designed for sensitive skin to minimize irritation.

6. Moisturize after shaving

After shaving, apply a soothing moisturizer to the bikini area to hydrate the skin and calm any irritation. Opt for fragrance-free, alcohol-free products to avoid further irritation. We recommend our Yoni Oil for this, it is herb infused and has a ton of benefits. It is made with tea tree oil which can also help prevent and get rid of razor bumps, dark spots and skin discoloration.

7. Consider Weekly Vagacials

Vagacials are just as important as facials. We recommend our Soothe Clay Mask for your bikini area. It is made with a gentle clay (kaolin), oats, chamomile, aloe vera, coconut milk and arrowroot powder. This mask helps calm redness and irritation after shaving. It also helps fade away dark spots and helps to even out the skin tone. 

8. Shave at the End of Your Shower

Make shaving the final step in your shower routine to allow the warm water and steam to soften the hair follicles and open up the pores. Softened hair is easier to shave, reducing the likelihood of irritation and razor bumps. Aim to spend at least 5-10 minutes in the shower before shaving to ensure optimal softening of the skin and hair.

9. Avoid Shaving too Frequently

Shaving the bikini area too frequently can irritate the skin and increase the risk of razor bumps. Allow the hair to grow out slightly between shaving sessions to give the skin a chance to recover. Aim to shave no more than every few days, depending on how quickly your hair grows.

Other Ways to Prevent Razor Bumps and Hyperpigmentation

In addition to using the Glow Scrub and implementing these shaving tips to your shaving routine, there are several other steps that you can take to help prevent razor bumps and hyperpigmentation in the bikini area. Here are some suggestions:
  • Avoid tight clothing: Tight clothing can rub against the skin and irritate hair follicles, leading to ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Consider wearing looser-fitting clothing, especially immediately after shaving.
  • Moisturize regularly: Keeping the skin moisturized can help prevent dryness and irritation, which can contribute to hyperpigmentation. Consider using a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturizer on a regular basis.
  • Consider alternative hair removal methods: Shaving is not the only hair removal method available. Consider alternative methods such as waxing, sugaring, or laser hair removal, which can reduce the likelihood of razor bumps and hyperpigmentation.

Dealing with razor bumps and hyperpigmentation in the bikini area can be frustrating and uncomfortable, but it doesn't have to be. By incorporating these tips and using the brightening glow scrub before shaving consistently, you will be able prevent and get rid of razor bumps and hyperpigmentation, while also brightening and even out your skin tone.

Don't let razor bumps and hyperpigmentation hold you back from feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin.
