How to properly exfoliate your bikini line?

More and more men are waxing their bikini line or waxing their private parts . But generally, they do this hair removal a little hastily, with a razor, sometimes without shaving product. But few of them take care of their bikini line after hair removal, very few exfoliate the bikini line in this way. Which is nevertheless an essential care to do.

Here are my tips for doing a good swimsuit exfoliation.

Why exfoliate the jersey?

Today almost all men have their bikini line waxed, whether it's all-over waxing or waxing on certain parts of the bikini line and the upper thighs. In order to make the area neater, cleaner. And no longer have this jungle of hair in the briefs as they say!! But you should know that, who says bikini waxing or pubic shaving , also says bikini scrub. And at two levels.

Exfoliation of the bikini line before hair removal

Exfoliation of the jersey before hair removal. As with any exfoliation, especially on the face, exfoliating the bikini line will deeply cleanse the skin by removing all the dead skin cells. So not only will the skin be clearer but the razor blade, or depilatory cream or wax, depending on the method used, will be more effective. Be careful though, do not exfoliate your bikini line just before shaving your bikini line or waxing it. Do it the day before or 48 hours before. Indeed, with a grain scrub, you risk weakening the area.

Exfoliation of the jersey after waxing

Exfoliation of the bikini line after waxing or shaving the bikini line. It is indeed advisable to exfoliate the jersey a few days after the session, 3 to 4 days later. The advantage of a bikini scrub is that you will help the hair that grows back to come out of the skin and thus prevent the appearance of ingrown hairs. These ingrown hairs which are not pretty and which will give the opposite effect to what you expect after waxing, namely having clear and soft skin.

Exfoliation of the bikini line as a treatment


But it is not necessarily necessary to wax the bikini line to exfoliate the bikini line. Indeed, even if you do not remove pubic hair, know that you can very well exfoliate the bikini line. And besides, it would even be recommended if you decide to let your pubic hair grow, so that you have a nice, well-stocked jungle. In effect :

  • not only exfoliating the bikini line will remove the dead cells of your skin under the pubic hair. This will have the effect of avoiding having dandruff in your swimsuit if your skin is very dry.

  • but in addition, exfoliating the bikini line will help promote blood micro-circulation, and therefore do good for your hair follicle, where the hair takes root. Thus, you will have a hair in better shape, stronger and shinier!

What products to use for a bikini exfoliation?

To properly exfoliate your bikini line, here is a selection of products that I recommend.

An exfoliation of the home jersey

If you are a fan of zero waste consumption, then you can make your own homemade jersey scrub. For this, it's very very simple, very few ingredients are enough. And normally, you have everything you need at home, there is no need to go and buy products.

To exfoliate your home jersey, you will need:

  • olive oil. If you don't have olive oil, you can use sunflower oil.

  • coarse salt. If you don't have any, you can use sugar or coffee grounds.

So, to have your homemade swimsuit scrub, mix two tablespoons of olive oil with four tablespoons of coarse salt.

If you don't feel like making your own scrub, you can use any scrub product. Be careful to choose grains that are not very large, not very aggressive, and natural.

A scrub glove for the bikini line

If you don't want to use products to exfoliate your jersey, you can use an exfoliating glove. This will allow you to remove all the dead cells from your skin and prepare for hair growth.

I advise you not to use a horsehair glove, which would be too fragile for the too aggressive part of the jersey. Especially if you also use it on the testicles after testicular waxing .

To exfoliate the jersey with a glove, it's very simple: just make circular movements on the jersey, without forcing the skin. The movements must be very delicate.

When should you exfoliate your swimsuit?

I advise you to exfoliate your swimsuit after going in the shower. Indeed, the heat of the water will make it possible to open the pores of the skin. This will make it easier for you to deeply cleanse your skin.
