How to shave a man's bikini line properly?


The shaving of the bikini line in men is an act more and more carried out by men today. Here are my tips for doing a good men's bikini shave.


Bikini line shaving for men is the complete removal of bikini line hair, also known as pubic hair. It is an act which was until very recently little performed by men, but which is currently meeting with more and more success. Indeed, at the present time we see that men are hunting for hair all over their bodies, and men's hair removal is in vogue.

Some men will simply want to shave the jersey, but others will want to go further by removing every single hair from their jersey.

Here are my tips for getting the perfect men's bikini shave.

Why shave your bikini line?

Shave your bikini line for aesthetics

Shaving swimsuits for aesthetic reasons. This is currently one of the main reasons that can lead people to shave their bikini line. It is true that a shaved jersey is prettier than the presence of a forest of unkept hair (we generally speak of a jungle), which goes all over the place.

It will be all the prettier if you are used to wearing sexy underwear: it would be a shame to have a tuft of hair sticking out of your underwear.

Shave the bikini line for hygiene

Shave the jersey to avoid bad odors. Some people indeed suffer from excessive perspiration which can not only affect the armpits but also the private parts, including the bikini line. To avoid having bad odors, linked to the presence of bacteria, some people will therefore do full hair removal and shave their jersey.

Shaving your bikini line for sexuality

Of course, I have to talk about it, because if some decide to shave their jersey, it's for:

  • please his/her partner, who will find it more pleasant to take care of a perfectly clean area. In addition it will avoid having hairs in the mouth, it's stupid, but it's important!

  • feel more sensations, the jersey can be an erogenous zone.

Shaving the shirt and manhood?

Is shaving your bikini line an act that takes away your manhood? How many times have we heard that a man decides not to shave his jersey because it does not look masculine, or even worse, looks young! Manliness or masculinity does not reside in body hair, fortunately. It's as if you decide to do a man's hair removal or to shave your armpits or to shave your testicles .


How to shave your bikini line?


Shaving your swimsuit starts with the shower

It is indeed strongly advised to go through the shower before starting to shave your bikini line. The reason is very simple: the heat of the water will not only open the pores of the skin but also soften the hair. And a softer hair is a hair that will be easier to shave. This will make it much easier for you to shave the bikini area.

So of course, be careful not to burn in the shower, that's not the goal. Just take a warm, non-hot shower.

The heat from the shower will also soften the skin, which will prevent you from getting cut and bleeding after a razor cut .

The trimmer to shave the bikini line

If this is your first time doing a bikini shave, then you must have relatively long pubic hair. Of course, it is not a question here of passing the razor directly on the jersey, you will complicate the task. Indeed, your razor blade will quickly be bothered by the presence of long hairs and you will have to wash it regularly and use a certain amount of shaving products for nothing.

So, do not hesitate to take your mower and remove as much hair as possible, putting the comb as short as possible.

If you don't have a trimmer at home, you can trim your pubic hair with scissors.

Bikini shaving products

Now that you are ready to shave your bikini line, you will now have to use the right shaving products. So already, do not do like a large number of people not to use any shaving product and to attack the shaving of the jersey directly with the razor. No, put on a shaving product, this will allow you to:

  • make it easier to shave the bikini line

  • avoid cuts and the appearance of pimples, even red spots, which will be disturbing in the days to come.

To shave your bikini line, I advise you to take a transparent shaving product such as:

  • shaving oil

  • a shaving gel

Avoid taking a shaving foam that will completely cover the area and in the end, will give you little visibility on your shave. The objective is to pass the razor blade as little as possible over the same area so as not to attack the skin.

The right razor to shave your bikini line

Of course, it will be necessary to use a razor whose blade is in good condition. It is out of the question to have a blade that is too worn, or even damaged, to shave your bikini line, this would not only promote razor cuts but also the appearance of pimples after shaving and ingrown hairs. And yes, a used razor blade will not cut the hair cleanly and straight, but may make streaks in the hair, which will promote ingrown hairs.

Similarly, it is strongly advised not to use the same razor to shave your bikini line and to shave your beard. You should know that bacteria in the beard are not the same as bacteria in the jersey. Thus, it is advisable to use another razor to shave the bikini line. Unless you are in the habit of disinfecting the razor blade after each use.

Shave bikini line and cuts

You may have cuts and therefore bleeding after shaving your bikini line. In this case, do not panic, there is a perfect product to stop bleeding after a shaving cut : Alum stone. Not only does this stone act as a natural deodorant but it is also perfect for tightening the skin and thus stopping bleeding.

Shaving the jersey and care to do afterwards

Hydrate and shave your bikini line

Moisturizing the bikini line is a necessary care to do right after you have decided to shave your bikini line. And this for two main reasons:

  • the razor blade is aggressive for the skin, it is not a natural gesture for it. And it is all the more aggressive if you have used a used razor to shave your bikini line. The hydrolipidic film (the protective film of the skin against external aggressions) has thus been damaged, and it may already be weak from the start if you have dry skin. It will have to be reconstituted by moisturizing this part of the skin.

  • then, it is important to moisturize the skin after having decided to shave the bikini line to moisturize the hair follicle from which the hair takes root. A well hydrated hair follicle will be in better shape, and will thus allow the hair to grow in the best conditions, and therefore straight and robust (to pierce the skin well during regrowth and thus prevent the appearance of ingrown hairs).

To hydrate the bikini line after shaving, you can:

  • apply a moisturizing body product, such as moisturizing milk or moisturizing oil.

  • apply your face moisturizer

  • Apply your aftershave lotion.

Be careful, make sure that your moisturizer does not contain alcohol: it will dry out the skin.

Shave your bikini line and exfoliate

Exfoliation is an important care to do after deciding to shave your bikini line. And yet it is a care that is still very little done by men. It is indeed very common to have itching after shaving the jersey. This itching comes in the form of pimples, red pimples which, if there are many of them, can form red patches. Very disturbing, they make you want to scratch constantly. Which is not very classy when you are in the street for example or in the office! In short, shaving your jersey is not necessarily to do when you have an important appointment two days later! Except, if you apply the advice!

These pimples on the bikini line that appear a few days after shaving the bikini line are linked to hair regrowth. It is therefore important not only to moisturize the skin of the bikini line but also to exfoliate it to allow the hair to grow optimally, without pimples. Indeed, you have to help them come out of the skin and prevent ingrown hairs, which will give your bikini line a rather ugly visual state. It would still be a shame to shave your jersey and have lots of buttons (usually stinks). That wouldn't be very pretty for your partner.

To exfoliate your bikini line, you have several options:

  • you can use your facial scrub product.

  • you can use a scrub product specially adapted for the body.

  • you can make your own scrub by mixing coffee grounds (or powdered sugar if you don't drink coffee) with olive oil or sunflower oil.

Be careful not to force too much so as not to damage the skin which is already weakened by the razor. Preferably use a fine grain scrub. And of course, you can take advantage of the moment when you are in the shower to do your scrub.

You can do your first scrub the next day after deciding to shave your bikini line. In any case, do not do it immediately after the shaving session, it is useless.
