Every dude should be manscaping their downstairs at this point, and sometimes that means taking it all off. But before you try it, be warned: shaving will result in razor burn and bumps, no matter how hard you try to avoid it.
Instead of bringing the blade down below, we recommend waxing. It’s not as hard as you might think, and it leaves your private parts silky smooth for weeks.
How To Wax
First, make sure to trim the hair to ¼ inch before you wax. Then, apply the wax in sections by smearing, waiting 30 seconds, and pulling it off against the direction of the hair. And lastly, apply some cooling cream to soothe the area, and you’re good to go.
To properly wax your nether regions you’ll need a few things: a waxing kit, soothing cream, and a quality groomer to trim the hedges before you wax. Check out our recommendations below for smooth sailing from here on out.
1. Nad’s For Men Hair Removal Strips
Nad’s offers one of the best men’s waxing kits at a very reasonable price. For $6, you get 20 double-sided waxing strips, which is good for several jobs. They also work great on your back, arms, or chest if needed.
2. LAVO Soothing Gel
This soothing gel is a necessity when waxing your loins. It utilizes tea tree oil for soothing, salicylic acid for effective pain relief, and aloe vera for healing and cooling.
