Hi, BeingGirl Experts,

Hey! Summertime is around the corner! I wanted to ask you what products you recommend for bikini line? Do you believe in waxing or shaving?

Dear Bette,

Sounds like you are hoping to have lots time at the pool or beach this summer! 

 

Venus has a variety of razors girls tell us work well for the bikini area. You will need to choose one you feel will work best for you.

 

After soaking in a warm bath or shower for 23 minutes before shaving and using a gel like those made by Satin Care, you will get a clean and close shave. We recommend the Venus Bikini Trimmer for trimming the hair you don't shave. You will need a good lotion after shaving. The one we recommend is Olay's Bikini Moisturizing Lotion because it leaves skin looking and feeling beautiful.

 

Shaving the entire pubic area is a personal decision and matter of preference. Understand a shaved pubic area may be itchy as it grows back. Disposable razors are a great option for the bikini area so you don't spread any bacteria by reusing the razor.

 

Waxing is an option. The down side to waxing is the hair will need to grow out to about 5 mm to be able to wax again. Waxing can be messy, painful, and can leave the skin irritated. There are do it yourself kits available, but salon treatments are usually less painful and more effective.

 

The good news is you get to decide which will work best for you. Aftercare for both shaving and waxing is important so make sure you have plenty of moisturizing lotion on hand.

 

We hope this is helpful!

I will use shsving cream only if I have to do so. I will often or less than often use Nair products, I'll put some cream on the area and I will let it stay there for about 5 minutes or so and then remove it with the tool that is included. Sometimes it is good to talk about things like this with a mom or sister or aunt someone.

I usually use Nair Body Hair remover, you can use it on your legs and for bikini line shaving. It's a gel that u put on and leave it on for three minutes then wash it off it works try it and see.
