1. Shower before you shave

Shaving your pubes when they’re dry is a bad idea. Instead, wait to manscape until after you’ve taken a hot shower. That will make the process smoother and less abrasive, meaning you’ll be less likely to cause some nicks. Shaving after a shower is helpful because the warm temperature allows your skin to soften, and loosens dirt and oils. Plus, the water will help naturally lubricate the area and prevent hair from pulling.

2. Moisturizing:

But lathering up with your regular old bar soap won’t cut it, either. You need to use a shave gel or similar bath products which are more moisturizing. Look for alcohol-free gels that contain aloe. These can help prevent irritating your delicate parts. Getting the skin smooth and moisturized reduces the friction faced by the skin when you’re actually using the razor; don’t skip this.

3. Trim before you shave:

It would be very unwise if you try to use a razor on your public hair if it is long. Since pubic hair is coarser and has more curl to them, it’s easier for the hair to curl back into the skin and cause ingrown hair. To avoid this, trim to a short length, but not at the skin surface- about 1/16 of an inch. This will allow you to keep your hair well-manicured easily with clippers and avoid potential ingrown hair. Also, there are a wide range of grooming products for men; pick one that suits you best!

4. The correct technique:

If your grooming goal is to get smooth, you’ll need to shave in the direction of hair growth, not against the grain. Look which way your hair is pointing toward and shave smooth, even strokes that same way. This will help you avoid the dreaded after-shave stubble and trapped ingrown hair. The method is also less likely to cause irritation or bumps, since your razor won’t be tugging hair in a direction they aren’t used to going.
