It's Swimsuit Season—14 Trimmers and Razors for a Super-Smooth Bikini Line

If you fall on the shave-it end of the hair-down-there spectrum, you're likely familiar with the annoyances that come from shaving your bikini line—razor burn, ingrown hair, general irritation. To prevent these frustrations, you're going to need to equip yourself with some knowledge and quality products.

It starts with how to shave. You'll want to exfoliate your skin before you pick up the razor since that will get rid of any dead skin and debris while helping to unclog pores. If you don't, the razor could be pushing the dead skin and debris into said pores, which can lead to ingrown hairs and razor bumps.

When it's time to shave, you're going to need to use a lubricant (creams, gels, etc.). Shave in the direction of the way your hair grows, and apply gentle pressure. Be careful not to shave the same spot over and over. And when you're done, don't forget to moisturize.

And of course, you're going to want a high-quality razor that is precise, comfortable on the skin, and durable. You don't want to use an old, dull razor, because it can pull at the skin and cause razor burn or even nicks. We've pulled some options below for a smoother shave.
