How to use an electric razor and bikini trimmer

If you’re at all familiar with hair removal tools and products, you know there’s a world of options out there: from razors, shaving creams, wax strips and at-home laser devices to more extravagant salon treatments that are often a bit more pricey. Not to say that’s not justified, but sometimes you’re looking for something more budget-friendly that still provides lasting results.

If you still prefer methods of hair removal that are not shaving, but still want a trimmer for bikini area, this is also a good idea because bikini trimmers are:

  • Available in many options and can be found starting at as low as $15
  • Small and easy to store
  • Don’t require any special maintenance
  • Painless and don’t require the use of shaving cream
  • Can be suitable for wet and dry usage

On the other hand, it’s not that easy to replace a bikini trimmer with another product or a do-it-yourself solution, but why should you consider getting an electric razor instead of a regular one when the initial investment is higher?

There are several reasons that’ll stop your thinking:

  • Nowadays electric razors and bikini trimmers often come as a single or 2-in-1 product (the razor is the main product you’re investing in and the trimmer is usually its second function made possible with the use of different combs and attachments)
  • Some electric razor models have the option of both wet and dry shaving – ideal when you’re pressed for time
  • They make the shaving process quicker
  • They make it easy to shave larger areas at a single time (because the blades are bigger and wider than that of a regular razor)

How to use an electric razor

It’s not rocket science, but there are still some hacks that make shaving with your electric razor more pleasant and successful.

For dry shaving:

  • Prepare your skin. Make sure it is clean and there is no lotion or cream residue. Washing before shaving will also soften your skin and the hair follicle
  • Shave in sections, against the direction of hair growth, working your way up from your ankle
  • When you’re done, rinse with water or wipe your legs with a clean towel
  • Moisturise

For wet shaving:

  • Before even considering shaving, buy a good shaving gel that lathers and stays on the surface of your skin, working to lift the hairs from the root
  • Prepare your skin by taking a shower
  • Apply a small amount of shaving cream or gel to your legs. Massage it into the legs
  • Shave in sections, against the direction of hair growth, working your way up from your ankle
  • Rinse and look over your skin in case there are any spots you missed
  • Dry your skin and moisturise generously

Recommended before both methods: exfoliate your skin with a glove or an exfoliating body scrub to make skin even smoother and lift the hairs.

Taking care of your skin is always important, no matter what hair removal method you choose. Be gentle and always remember to moisturise.
