1. Gauge Skin Sensitivity:
If you’re one of the few men who haven’t started manscaping yet then you first need to figure out how sensitive your skin is.

2. Do It In the Shower:
When using a trimmer of shaver on areas like your chest, it’s best to do it in the shower. The hot water and cleanliness unclogs your pores and makes it easier to shave more smoothly by getting rid of all the dirt and oils. Your grooming products will work better with all the moisture and hygiene.
3. Exfoliate if you Wax:
If you prefer waxing as your choice of hair removal then remember to exfoliate regularly. Although you shouldn’t exfoliate right before a waxing session, doing it regularly helps to pull out the hair with least resistance while causing less damage by the hot wax.
4. Waxing, Shaving, Creams, Threading:
There are a lot of different methods of hair removal and you need to figure out what works best for you. Most men stick to trimming and shaving, as it’s the easiest. Waxing is the most effective in the long run, but it is also the most painful, especially if you have sensitive skin. Threading is the least painful and healthy but it is very time consuming and can only focus on small areas like eyebrows and knuckles.
