If you want to avoid red bumps in the intimate area, as well as beard plague and ingrown hairs, it's important to use products that keep bacteria away when you shave.
Skin problems after intimate shaving can be very painful and inconvenient. That's why we recommend using the two products in this pack when shaving and caring for your skin afterwards.
How do I shave down there?
With good products and gentle care before, during and after intimate shaving, you can minimise the risk of red beard bumps, beard plague and ingrown hairs, which can be both painful and cosmetically troublesome.
It is important that you first soften the skin with lukewarm water to make the hair and skin easier to work with. We recommend that you wash the intimate area thoroughly with intimate soap before shaving, so that the skin is completely clean and bacteria-free.
Then apply Intimate Shave gel to the skin you want to shave. Leave the shaving gel on the skin for about 1 minute before shaving. This gives the hairs time to stand up and gives a smoother and cleaner result.
When you have finished shaving, rinse the skin clean of hair residue and excess product.
Nourish the skin with aftershave lotion after shaving and in the days afterwards. Intim Balm is an intimate shaving cream that is applied directly to the shaved area. Aftershave balm does not need to be rinsed off the skin and you can use it several times a day if your skin tends to become red, irritated or itchy after intimate shaving.
Why do I get red bumps and ingrown hair?
Red bumps occur when you shave because bacteria enter the exposed hair follicles. You can avoid this by removing bacteria from your skin before shaving. Therefore, it's a good idea to wash thoroughly with intimate soap before you start shaving.
Use a clear shaving gel with anti-bacterial Tea Tree Oil for the shave itself. This will minimise the risk of bacteria on your skin during the shaving process, and the transparent gel will also help you avoid painful razor accidents.
When shaving, it's important to shave in the direction of the grain of the hair. It can be tempting to do the opposite, as many people find that it makes for a closer shave. Unfortunately, it also increases the risk of developing ingrown hairs.
Ingrown hairs are - as the name suggests - hairs that grow back into the skin instead of out. Ingrown hairs can be very painful, so you should do what you can to avoid them in your intimate area.
Rather than shaving against the hairs, it's better to take a second pass with the razor if you don't feel like you've gotten all the hairs in the first place.
Good tips for the perfect shave
If you suffer from red bumps, redness and irritation in the intimate area after shaving, the products in this pack can help you.
In addition to good care products for intimate shaving, you can also benefit from these tips:
- Allow your skin to breathe after shaving. Avoid underwear made of synthetic materials in favour of cotton that won't irritate the skin.
- Always use a clean razor! Don't share a razor with anyone and change it regularly. If you have a lot of problems with razor bumps, use a new razor or blade every time you shave.
- Rinse the razor along the way. This ensures a clean blade with minimal friction from shaving gel and hair debris that can get stuck between the blades. Rinse the razor after each scrape.
- Always use a shaving gel or shaving foam. Never shave on dry skin, but use an antibacterial shaving gel. If you don't use a product, the razor will not glide smoothly over the skin and cause unnecessary irritation in the intimate area.
- Always care for the skin after intimate shaving. You shouldn't skip the step of caring for your skin after shaving. The skin in the intimate area should always be treated gently, and it can be extra sensitive in the immediate post-shave period. Therefore, keep it protected with an antibacterial intimate cream.
We recommend using a good and nourishing aftershave balm right after shaving and in the days afterwards - especially if you are prone to red bumps and beard plague.
Can I use other products combined with the intimate shaving products?
You can easily use the other Australian Bodycare intimate products alongside the shaving products.
In particular, you should consider Intim Wash, an intimate soap that is adapted to the pH balance of the genital area. It helps to thoroughly wash the intimate area before shaving.
It can also be helpful to exfoliate the skin area you want to shave before shaving. This removes dead skin cells and unevenness in the skin, which can cause friction and thus increase irritation when shaving.
When you remove the dead skin cells, the razor glides more smoothly, minimising the risk of ingrown hairs and red razor bumps.
Use an exfoliating scrub that effectively but gently removes dead skin cells before you start your intimate shave.
