If you shave your bikini area, you probably know how annoying razor bumps can be. Sometimes they're even painful but, you should know that there's natural and simple ways to prevent them.
Here are proven steps you need to follow to prevent razor bumps in your bikini area.
1. Use A Men’s Razor
A few studies have shown that men’s razors are made with higher quality blades and will give a closer and cleaner shave. Plus, some men’s razors are made to navigate around areas in the face that are harder to reach like the chin, cheeks, neck and even the nose. So, using a men’s razor will make it a lot easier to shave your bikini area.
Before you shave, use warm water to open up the pores. This also helps prevent razor bumps and even razor burns.
And, don’t shave against the grain!
Before you shave you should exfoliate to remove any dead skin cells that are built up on the surface of the skin. This will help smoothen and soften your skin so that the razor slides more easily. Exfoliating will also help free and prevent ingrown hairs.
If you’re looking for an exfoliator that not only does all of the above but also helps fade away scars and dark spots down there, then we recommend our Veenourish Glow Sugar Scrub.

3. Use Shaving Cream
Shaving cream can also help you achieve a closer and cleaner shave. It softens and hydrates the hair to make it easier to shave it away. The less force you have to use, the more likely it is that you will prevent razor bumps and burns.
Use a shaving cream that is natural and unscented because chemicals and fragrances can affect your PH balance.
4. Apply After Shave Gel
Applying an after shave gel like aloe vera gel will help soothe your skin after shaving. Aloe vera is amazing because compared to other after shave gels, it is natural. And, it gets absorbed into the skin and helps heal deeper layers instead of just the surface of the skin.
Aloe vera has tons of skin benefits, it also helps prevent acne lesions and eczema flare-ups on your face that shaving might trigger. Plus, it helps speed up cell regeneration to keep your skin looking healthy.
After shaving you should be moisturizing to provide the extra protection your skin is missing to naturally start its recovery process. Moisturizing can further help prevent razor bumps and will soothe razor burns.
You should be using a high quality moisturizer that is unscented and that contains NO chemicals. Again, chemicals and fragrances can affect your PH balance. It’s important that you keep it natural!
Our Veenourish Body Butter is exactly what you need to moisturize and keep your bikini area looking fresh. Our body butters are 100% natural and organic, no preservatives or chemicals are added which makes them perfect for sensitive areas on your body.
They also help moisturize deeper layers of the skin (which means they don’t just sit on the surface, they get absorbed) without clogging your pores. They also help lock in moisture, fights acne and even helps fade away dark spots and scars.
6. Wear Cotton Material
Other materials won’t let your skin breathe and recover properly. Cotton underwear help prevent itching, and even help prevent infections.
7. Mask Up!
Yes! You can use a mask down there. You must however, make sure that it is completely natural. You can apply a natural mask 1 or 2 times a week to unclog your pores and to soften your skin for a cleaner shave.
