Lets face it, we all do it, but no one talks about it! In an era where women are breaking boundaries left, right and centre, we thought it would be fitting to discuss all things intimate care, the do’s the don’ts and the how to’s. We all know that shaving in rush is the surefire way to earn yourself a raging case of razor burn especially in the pubic area. So, we’ve complied some of our top products to prevent razor burn and keep that itch at bay!
To debunk the myth, shaving down there should be the last thing you do in the shower, it’ll give your hair follicles the chance to properly soften, which lowers your risk of irritation. Using products with natural based formulas will be your best friend when it comes to intimate maintenance. BareDerma’s Intimate Bump Free Scrub, £8.50 is formulated with Wild Carrot and Sunflower oils to naturally nourish, tone and rejuvenate the skin. Ground Olive stones also help to remove dead skin cells and polish the new skin underneath. This is perfect for use on any areas prone to ingrowing hairs as the scrub will help exfoliate deeper, minimising opportunities for hair to grow inwards.
If you’re not a fan of scrubs, the Folli Oil Daily Treatment, £39.00 is a great alternative to avoid razor burn, shaving bumps and ingrown hairs. A best-seller when it comes to banishing irritation after hair removal, this is great for those sensitive souls with its 100% natural formula to calm and soothe inflammation and redness and reduce discomfort. Its anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties also help to prevent infected follicles – what’s not to love!
