You might find your skin is sensitive after shaving or using hair-removal cream, so try to avoid wearing trousers that are too tight, as any friction on this area will make it more irritated or sore. Usually skin calms down within a couple of days, but if you find it doesn’t, make sure the razor, cream or shaving foam you use agrees with your skin type.
If you’re looking for something to soothe your V-zone after hair removal, our daily V-Care™ Wash Gel [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE] contains cooling aloe vera (though with waxing, it’s often advised that you wait a few hours after a treatment before you shower or bath).
Waxing is popular because it’s quick and gives a smooth finish that can last for weeks. It may, however, cause ingrown hairs. Worry not, though. A little gentle exfoliation in the shower will help to prevent these. If you prefer shaving, always go easy around your hard-to-reach bits and be sure to watch out for nicks or cuts. Even the smallest skin tears can put you more at risk of STIs, or passed on to sexual partners.
