For those who shave their bikini area...

Do you do it daily or every other day? I just decided to shave with a Mach 3 Turbo until I can maybe afford a good electric razor... and I did pretty good (didn't shave all of it off, just a left a "landing strip"), but it is hard to shave stubble. Does it get easier if I do it daily? Do you go against the grain? It doesn't get all of the stubble if I go "with" the grain.... Any help you can give me will much appreciated, thanks! =)

I usually do it daily, and I go against the grain. I have no problems doing it every day.

Re: For those who shave their bikini area...

I usually shave every other day or maybe even every 3 days, depends if anyone else has any business to do downthere except for myself Shaving I usually go against the grain, sometimes I do sideways across as well. Good luck

Re: For those who shave their bikini area...

Re: For those who shave their bikini area...

just a tip for you guys.. buy unscented solid deodorant and rub it on ur freshly shaved bikini line. helps prevent ingrowns, razor burn, and itchies. oh and by the way the silk effects ( i think thats what it is called) is a really good razor to use. For some reason I notice that it doesnt grow back as stubbly! Oh, and try using Biore's facial hair minimizing lotion down there. It actually really helps - after awhile u wont have to shave as much.

Also AVON has a great serum for after a bikini shave. It is part of the Skin So Soft line - Skin Smoothing Serum I think it's called? It's for smoothing and preventing/minimizing nicks, bumps, etc. I LOVE it!!! Doesn't burn or irritate like Bikini Zone does for me.

Awesome advice, Kimzi... thanks!
Southern_Girl: I generally shave all of it, every day... maybe skipping a day once in a while. I find doing all of it much easier than worrying about if the "landing strip", as you called it, is even etc. I use a regular razor, I've found that Personal Touch gives me a nice, close shave. I shave against the grain, and actually, the stubble seems to get softer the more you shave... so even if you let it grow for a day or two, it's really not *****ley and itchy. When I first started, I had those problems someone mentioned about the bleeding, but it doesn't happen anymore unless I've left it to grow and I'm using a brand new blade. Good luck !
