As of late, I’ve been seeing women's health get more and more of a spotlight in the media. From articles about sex and periods, to products like period underwear and probiotics for vaginal health and the fight against the Pink Tax, there's a lot of momentum for us. I mean, women’s health is just health, why should there be a stigma around it? From a young age, we’ve been taught to be so hush about naturally occurring things like periods or even self-care steps like shaving. The conversation is finally beginning to open up and the feeling is so empowering!
..
It wasn’t until very recently that I decided to ditch my razor and take the plunge into the world of waxing, which was something very foreign to me. As it turns out, waxing is super common among many men and women. Although I still shave my legs, I’ve been razor-free in my bikini zone for about a year now and I’ve picked up some interesting tips along the way.
Starting with the basics--exfoliating. My waxer never fails to mention that you need to regularly exfoliate your bikini zone. Not only had I never heard of doing this, I was honestly intimidated. Why had no one mentioned such a thing before?
..
Well, I guess I never thought to Google wax care or openly discuss it with my friends. But, thanks to my waxer, I now know that gently exfoliating your bikini zone is the key to preventing ingrown hairs and keeping things smooth and healthy down there. My favorite product to use is this Brightening Cleansing Powder, because it’s fine grains provide just the right amount of exfoliation while still being gentle enough for this sensitive area. Take a warm shower to open up your pores, mix some powder with water and gently massage in circular motions. You’ll be feeling like a new woman, whether you wax, shave, or keep things natural!
..
While wax care mainly depends on aftercare, shaving largely depends on preparation, because no one wants irritated, itchy, or bumpy skin post-shave. The quality of your shave actually depends on this preparation and not your razor, which is why I purchase mens razors which come at a much lower price point (thanks, Pink Tax).
..
Prior to shaving, I massage our Body Exfoliant in circular motions onto my legs. This stimulates blood flow, washes away dead skin cells, and replenishes your skin's hydration with the healing powers of coconut oil and shea butter. After I exfoliate and shave, my legs are seriously silky smooth, but for an extra kick of hydration, I massage some Rose Blossom Body Oil into my skin. If you want to combine two steps in one, simply exfoliate, massage the body oil onto your skin, and use the oil as a shaving medium. This ensures your razor will glide smoothly, and what's left behind will be seriously smooth, hydrated, and healthy skin.
..
These small steps can be taken to accentuate your self-care routine and help nourish and heal your skin. Especially during the summertime, where we tend to pay more attention to our skin. Whether you decide to remove body hair or not, no one should ever feel ashamed of what you do with your body. Let's keep owning the conversation, ladies!
