Keeping Your Bikini Line Bump Free for Spring Break
“Let’s go to the be-each, let’s go get away!” Thank you, Nicki Minaj, because we’ll definitely be headed to the beach this spring break. When this lovely week rolls around every year, there’s a lot of planning that goes into it.
While you might be packing, you’re probably also making sure you’re beach ready. You might be beach ready, but are you bikini ready? Rather than getting a Brazilian wax, you might be shaving in your bathroom. If you truly want to be bikini ready, check out these six tips to keep that bikini line bump free!
Many people try exfoliating after they shave, but you’re just going to irritate the skin! If you want to prevent those annoying bumps around your bikini line, exfoliate before shaving. Not only will this unclog your pores and prevent those bumps and ingrown hairs, but it will also help you get a closer shave! Before you head out on vacation, get ready with the Jericho Aromatic Body Exfoliator. Made from Dead Sea salts and almond oil, it’ll definitely leave the skin smooth and glowing!
Soak in Warm Water
Before you shave, you should definitely soak in warm water. This allows the pores to open up which will make it a smoother and closer shave.
Cut Most of the Hair
If it has been a while since you’ve shaved your bikini area, you might find that you’re spending a lot of time shaving. Before you introduce that razor to your skin, use a sharp pair of scissors to cut down the hair as much as possible. This will also help you achieve a smoother, bump-free shave!
Get a New Razor
When you shave, your razor should be as sharp as your mind! Don’t ever use a dull razor. Dull razors force you to apply more pressure than needed. This can attribute to giving you even more bumps than you’d like!
Shave Against the Grain
One rule of thumb when you shave is to shave against the grain. If you’re shaving your pubic region, this means you’d have to move in an upwards motion. For those who are prone to bumps or ingrown hairs, you want to do the opposite! If this is a problem for you, you want to shave in the direction that the hair is growing in order to prevent those bumps as much as possible.
Apply a Soothing Balm
While you might be tempted to rinse off and go about your way, you shouldn’t! Shaving irritates the skin, so you want to make sure you soothe it! You can quickly accomplish this with Aloe Vera or baby oil.
Now, you’re ready to hit the beach! The weather is warming up, and everyone is gearing up to show off their bikini bodies. Make sure you’re showing yours off with a smooth bikini line!
