So, keeping your genital area hair free could be an important care for them. Maybe even more important than hair removal from other areas of the body. Removing hair from a delicate area of the genital area can be a scary process for either gender.

There are different ways that one can go through the process of removing hair. Bikini line hair removal creams being one of them.

Different Hair Removal Methods

Shaving

The shaving method requires the use of a razor blade. This method is steadily declining in its popularity as the blade often leave cuts on the skin.

This method also just cuts the hair from the surface of the skin and we know that pubic hair grows back within a couple of days. So, shaving constantly and so frequently leaves the sensitive skin there to get uncomfortable.

Waxing

Waxing is the faster and the most effective method to achieve a smoother bikini line for a longer period of time as this method works close to the hair root. The results last up to 4 weeks without any complication.

Several brands have now introduced waxing strips that are easy to use at home.  The regular waxing or use of waxing strip can result in fewer and softer hair growth with time.Using Bikini Line Hair Removal Creams Safely

Hair Removal Creams

One other way to go about removing pubic hair is through hair removal creams. They are easy to apply and remove. The best hair removal creams work effectively and without any hassle. The hair removal cream works on breaking down the chemical bonds of the hair.

After a couple of minutes, the hair becomes weak to be easily scraped off with a spatula. Some women prefer this method over other two for pubic area hair removal as this method is quick and painless. However, before you use the product, it is advised to do a patch test to check for any skin irritation.      

How To Use The Hair Removal Creams Safely And Correctly

Testing 

The first step is to test the cream through patch test before you even put it to use. Apply a little of the cream on a small portion of the skin to check for skin sensitivity and irritation. Wait for about 10 minutes and rinse it immediately on irritation.

If there aren’t any changes then clean it off with a damp towel. Wait for an extra hour or two for any signs of skin allergic reactions to be sure. A reddened or bumpy skin means that the cream isn’t suitable for your skin.

Trimming

Proceed to the second step after the cream has passed the skin patch test. Trim the pubic hair beforehand to make the hair removal easier as the trimmed hair are easier to break down and clean off.

In this way, you will need to use a lesser amount of hair removal cream which means less exposure of chemicals to the sensitive skin.

Area to Avoid


Whatever you do, do not use the cream on genital area as it is a sensitive area and would burn and may cause some serious harm if the chemicals in the cream came in contact with that area.

Timing

Don’t leave the cream on the skin longer than instructed on the box. The time limit of 6-8 minutes is long enough for the cream to work on the hair. Leaving it for long may hurt the sensitive skin of the pubic area.

Repeating the application is preferable than leaving it for longer duration in case of thicker hair.

Washing

After you are done, gently wipe the residual cream off your skin using a damp soft towel. A warm damp towel would be better. After wiping, rinse the area with water and wash it away with antibacterial liquid like this one here to prevent infection.

Avoid using any soap for at least 24 hours. A light moisturizer may help soothe the skin.

Conclusion

Pubic hair is a bane in a girl’s life as it is too sensitive a skin to experiment. Waxing, by far, is the best way to get rid of pubic hair, but, even that can go wrong. The other easier way would be to either shave or use a hair removal cream. There are other methods mentioned in an earlier post here so choices are endless.

Shaving isn’t a practical approach for pubic hair as it tends to thicken the hair. Using hair removal creams whichever you choose is only fine if you know how to do it the right way. However, these creams do have their own bad points as none of the hair removal cream manufacturers claims it safe for pubic hair removal.

  1. It’s very hard to find good hair removal creams which don’t cause discomfort in your private areas. I’m sceptical to use any.

      Bikini line hair removal creams are mild and used right(not letting the cream overstay) there should be no discomfort and you`ll achieve good results when done properly.

  2. I prefer using creams. You’re right that it’s safe to use. Also, it’s very easy to use and very cheap.

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Totally agree hair removal creams are so easy to use and the results also acceptable in a very short period of time.

  3. I still get tears in my eyes thinking about the first time I used was. Who developed that method? Uggh! I’ve honestly never tried a cream but I may have to give it a shot.

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Lol, that could be me talking,not wanting to ask anyone and not caring to read instructions. Yes bikini line hair removal cream burns down below can be uncomfortable.

  4. I don’t like to use creams as they leave my skin dry and with a very strange feeling. I always use the razor and never had any issues so far. You only cut yourself if the blade is not new.

  5. Thank you for sharing! I would do creams, waxing is just too painful.

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      I know, not many women do bikini area waxing, most prefer hair removal creams or just a quick shave with a razor.

  6. Taking care of your bikini area can be quite the painful experience. Its always good to find advice on using products safely.

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      hi Tara, I think as long as you`re careful and do not let the hair removal cream stay longer than it should, you`ll be ok.

  7. Creams are work LOL I found that the wax at the European Wax Center is the best that I have come across so far and I’m in and out of there in less than 15 minutes!

  8. I can’t even imagine using wax down there. I use cream and I’m ok with it, even if it doesn’t last very much.

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Bikini line hair removal creams work well so you don`t have to wax if you`re not comfortable with it.

  9. That was a painful experience. Haha i guess waxing aint for me so i just use creams.

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      creams work just as well, waxing is not for everyone and bikini area is quite sensitive sso not everyone can “toletate” waxing down there.

  10. This is a very handy guide – there’s so many different ways to remove body hair but not everyone knows how to do them correctly or safely.

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Thanks for stopping by, sometimes I feel if something works then you should stick with it.I`m not one keen to experiment down there.

  11. What an interesting post! It’s always a nice feeling to find something safe that works for you. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Then how do you remove bikini line hair? please don’t tell me what I`m already thinking.Do you just not shave?

  13. Nair use to be the thing to use here. I forgot all about it until you wrote this. I should look into it again as shaving is horendous lol

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Shaving bikini line is not that bad if done properly, I think most people are scared of the thought not the act of actually shaving.
