My wife has a ladies shaver blade. But after shaving with new blade still has stubble in pubic area. What is the solution because my experience is that a blade makes for really smooth skin. She does correct direction and does blade strokes with hair in downward in this case, but I think she’s doing something wrong as her pubic area is full of stuble right away.
I recommend using a good exfoliating scrub before AND after shaving. I’ve also found that using a men’s razor gives a closer shave and smoother skin. Pulling the skin as taut as possible will also give a close shave. The woman who does my waxing has always told me to do a dry brush exfoliation or use an all natural exfoliating scrub. I use a dry brush and an apricot scrub. Applying coconut oil after shaving or waxing can help with razor burn, ingrown hairs, and it also softens the hair that grows back. It can’t hurt to try!
Same as on your face, a completely smooth finish is only going to be achieved by 2 or 3 passes, possibly with the last one against the grain. However, the skin in that area is very sensitive so I wouldn’t recommend shaving against the grain.
Hair removal cream may be a better solution, or follow Ron’s advice and leave the hair slightly longer.
I stopped shaving there as i tried many times and even gone over the same area at least 10 times and it ALWAYS felt stubbly, husband hated it. The hair shaft is much thicker there and either waxing or sugaring is pretty much the only way to guarantee smoothness plus its a pain in the butt to maintain and on women, you have to be really careful because of infection and throwing PH off.
A matter of preferences. But on our side, we don’t like to find hair in our food :).
To have an idea about the difference: some women enjoy kissing their men when they are clean shaved, because of the softness and smoothness.
In my case is the same, I don’t like picky things in contact with my lips and tongue, it feel soooo good and much better when my lady is clean shaven down there. 🙂
I think it’s a matter of hair texture or coarseness. It could be changing brands of shaving cream used. I use soap in between but find shaving cream to give the best smoothness. How about the number of blades in the razor? How often is she shaving? Every person is different and so are the methods each person uses. Keep trying different things. There’s bound to be a combination of things that works for her.
I’m not convinced that the shaving cream will make much difference, but the razor and the technique will.
I use an old fashioned double edge razor on my face, and definitely feel a difference in how different brands of blade shave. Personally, I find that disposables are too light to be able to get a decent shave, and that cartridges are horrible to use but will actually give a close, smooth shave.
Using at least 2 if not 3 passes will get a closer shave than just a single pass. Making the final pass across or against the grain will also give a closer shave, although be careful not to use too much pressure and cause irritation.
It may not work for everybody. But a bit of shower gel or soap as lubricant will help to have a smooth shave. Then wash it properly to remove all the shower gel or soap to avoid irritation, and for a perfect finish maybe apply some moisturizer/humectant cream.
