Whether very smooth, a narrow stripe or a triangle: intimate shaving is simply part of the routine for many women (and men). However, since this region of the body is much more sensitive than, for example, the legs or armpits, pimples, itching, ingrown hair or minor injuries often occur during intimate shaving. So that none of this happens anymore, we spoke to an absolute expert for hair removal in the genital area : Filiz from Adam & Eve in Hamburg answered all of our questions about shaving without pimples and gave us a trick or two:

Before the intimate shave: how to prepare the skin optimally?

When shaving, it is important to exfoliate the skin beforehand. This is how you open the thin layers of skin that form over ingrown hairs. This can avoid small, bloody spots that occur when the skin is cut by the razor blade. After exfoliation, the skin must be rinsed thoroughly so that no residues remain.

Another trick, also suitable for all skin areas, is to set the water a little warmer before the intimate shave and to wash the skin areas with it for 1-3 minutes. The warm water (a little more than just lukewarm) opens the pores. This makes the skin easier to shave and the smooth result lasts longer.

Which products are suitable for intimate shaving?

I recommend a peeling before shaving, taking care to use products that are as natural as possible . The chemical beads that are found in some peels often cause allergic reactions and pollute the environment. The best are razors that already contain aloe vera. So the razor glides over the skin much more gently. Aloe Vera soothes and nourishes during the shave. Of course, you should still use shaving foam or shower gel, here it is best to use products for sensitive skin, as these are the most likely to avoid the unpleasant irritations in the intimate area.

What should you watch out for during intimate shaving?

There is no one perfect shaving technique for the genital area. Everyone has to find a good technique for themselves, as the direction of growth can vary from person to person. In general, to avoid irritation, you should always shave with the direction of growth. If you want it to be super smooth, you have to shave very gently against the direction of growth. But be really careful and make sure that you keep the skin taut.

After intimate shaving: which skin care is best?

Moisturizing creams are definitely recommended here . Sensitive people should use perfume-free products and make sure that the body lotion contains urea or chamomile. This soothes the skin, prevents the typical razor burn and the skin remains smooth for a particularly long time. There are also body lotions that prevent ingrown hair from forming. These are also recommended!

What are the absolute no go’s for intimate shaving?

i) Use a blunt blade in the genital area

ii) Shave over ingrown hair if a pimple has already formed there

iii) Dry intimate shaving!

Waxing as an alternative

A great alternative is of course to simply go to wax . You save a lot of time and trouble and get a perfect result. Or just do a laser treatment directly – Adam & Eve offers this permanent hair removal for just € 80 per session. After about 4-8 sessions you are through and the hair is gone.

Take care of your skin in summer

When summer comes, it is also time to show a little more skin because the weather is conducive to wear lighter clothes, especially if we are going to be on the beach.

As we are more exposed to the sun at this time, we must know how to take care of ourselves.

We share 10 tips to take care of your skin in summer:

1. Sunscreen

It is advisable to use sunscreen daily in all areas that you will expose to the sun. Apply the product between 20 and 30 minutes before exposure and repeat every 2 hours, or when leaving the water.

2. Accessories

Do not forget to use other protective measures such as the use of lipstick with SPF 15, sunglasses and hats.

3. Appropriate clothing

Use light and light clothing, which covers most of the body, so you will avoid the direct action of the sun.

4. Schedule for sunbathing

It is important to try to avoid sunlight from 10 am to 5 pm, since at that time the rays are stronger. If you can’t avoid exposure, don’t forget sunscreen, hat and sunglasses.

5. Hydration

In addition to avoiding dehydration so common in summer, drinking water will allow you to maintain the hydration that your skin needs to look soft.

To keep the skin hydrated on the outside, it is ideal to use a refreshing spray lotion that you can use during the day.

6. Face

cleaning You must clean your face 2 times a day without fail, since in summer perspiration is greater and the pores can be clogged.

7. Exfoliation

In summer – as in the rest of the year – it is important to exfoliate to eliminate dead skin cells and allow their regeneration.

8. Moisturizer

It is important to use a water-based moisturizer both on the face and on the body, this will keep the skin hydrated without the generation of a film of fat on the surface.

9. Eliminate soda

Although you are tempted by heat, avoid consuming soda, as these are some of those responsible for the appearance of cellulite and dehydration of the skin.

10. Watch your skin

If you see any change in your skin (color, texture, moles or abnormal spots) do not hesitate to consult with your doctor.

If any alteration of the skin – aesthetic or medical – is detected in time, there is a greater chance that the treatments will work.
