Time for a Trim? How to Remove Pubic Hair the Right Way

Although it isn’t necessary to remove hair from your nether regions, many people in the U.K. prefer to groom their pubic hair. Surveys show that more than half of young people shave or trim the hair around their private area.

Whether you choose to trim or completely go bald down there, discussing the proper ways to remove hair is crucial. Improper hair removal could result in unappealing ingrown hairs or nasty infections. Keep reading to find out how to remove pubic hair without damaging your skin.


Trimming your pubic hair with scissors is one of the safest forms of hair removal. While this technique won’t leave your privates as smooth as a baby’s bum, it will give you a cleaner and well-groomed look. Another benefit of trimming is that it won’t leave you with bumps or ingrown hairs.

If you prefer this method, be sure to not angle the scissors towards your body. This could result in accidental injury.

Hair Removal Cream

Hair removal cream works by dissolving the hair at the surface of the skin. It’s one of the safest ways to remove pubic hair. However, it should not be used on the sensitive skin on your genitals. These creams are only to be used on the hair on your bikini line.

As with every product, be sure that you patch test hair removal creams to make sure it doesn’t cause an adverse reaction.


Many prefer this method because it means the hair won’t grow back for weeks. However, there are quite a few risks that come with waxing.

First, if you use an at-home wax kit, you run the risk of burning yourself — especially if you overheat the wax. Also, waxing could result in nasty ingrown hairs. If you prefer to wax your pubic area, be sure to go to a licensed professional and skip the DIY.


Shaving is one of the easiest and quickest ways to groom your privates. Before you reach for the razor, proceed with caution. Shaving increases the risks of cuts which could introduce harmful bacteria into the area.

Therefore, it’s essential to disinfect the razor before using it. Next, use a natural cream or moisturiser to lubricate the skin and reduce the chance of cuts or irritation. To prevent ingrown hairs, slowly shave in the direction that the hair grows.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses a strong beam of light to destroy hair follicles and limit hair regrowth. The process isn’t as fast as the other methods previously mentioned, some people may need 6 sessions to see results.

However, when you add up how much you spend on waxing and razors in your lifetime, the time and cost of laser hair removal are worth it. It also avoids ingrown hair which can lead to spots and infections, along with razor bumps.
