  • I Would wax because shaving can be annoying and you get razor rash (Lots of red lumps or spots) :( but if you want to shave then use lots of shaving gel/moisturizer DONT shave stubble (You'll Get Razor Rash) and use a 2 or 3 blade razor or youl shave too close to the skin dont stretch your skin either and you might get ingrown hairs and trust me you dont want that D: shave in a hot shower or baths better actually after you shave use lots of moisturizer but baby oil is really good to keep it nice and smooth and dab dry dont rub :) if you follow it all right you should be fine but if you do get razor rash dont worry it will go in about a week but moisturize lots and lots and use antiseptic cream and itl go away quicker :) Hope i Helped xxx

  • I use hair removal creams which you can get for under arms and pubic hair it's a sensitive version, but you done get any rash! the be catful not to get any on your clit though! It also last quite a while and dosent really itch when it grows back!! what ever you chose just make sure you comfortable with it, as it is a ver sensitive area

  • It’s really a personal choice. Truth is, there are plenty of girls and guys who don’t shave their pubic hair, but some do. Pubic hair does serve a purpose. It provides warmth and padding and traps dirt and germs that can get inside the body and cause an infection. When people shave their pubic hair, they usually itch while the hair grows back. This sensitive skin area can also become irritated and sore without hair covering it.

  • First of all, is it necessary? is it just for asthetic reasons or has a boyfriend/girlfrien d requested it? I only ask because it's quite a big thing to do if you're not doing it for yourself. ANYway, shaving comes with risks, as the hair is not being removed from the roots it grows back rather quickly creating rough stubble, if you shave once be prepared to do it again and often. I recommend using a razor with a moisturising strip to help sooth the skin, and be incredibly cautious when shaving close to the genitals. Post-shave your skin may be sore or irritated, it's important to moisturise with cream appropriate for sensitive skin and not to scrub with a flannel. During the showers that follow in the days after your shave you should try to gently exfoliate the skin in order to prevent ingrown hairs. If there's any way you could get a bikini wax instead, I strongly recommend them, they're not as painful as people think, they last longer, look neater and leave the skin perfectly smooth. Whatever you decide...good luck :)
