Summer is around the corner fellas, if you’ve already seen the billboards for mankini waxes, but aren’t fully committed, you might have thought about pruning off, or completely removing the sprouting downstairs.
After all, what sort of man wouldn’t want to look…presentable, right? Especially if you’re looking to score with the ladies (or other guys, we’re not judging here).
Manscaping is a lot like any other activity you would undertake, like baking a cake or putting together IKEA furniture. It requires trial and error, but unlike that IKEA chair, you’re not going to get a refund if you screw up while handling your manhood.
Besides, even the most experienced manscapers tend to tame the savage jungle all over their body, but walk away when it’s time to tackle the fur in the pubic region.
That reaction is understandable, after all, there’s a huge difference between the hair on your head (and the carpet on your back), and the thicker, curlier hair down there. Before you try your hand at the ultimate DIY activity, here are some tips you can use to trim your short and curlies.
Designate the Right Tools for the Job
So, it’ agreed that when it comes to manscaping the area of your genitalia, the pair of scissors you use to cut cabbage in the kitchen just won’t do, and that large orange-handled scissors you use to cut cardstock is an even bigger no-no.
If you’re serious about trimming your lush, luxurious bush and value your safety then use the tool that’s designated for the job man. The Lawn Mower is brought to you by Manscaped. The portable, electric trimmer has been designed to trim through coarse hair without giving you any nicks and cuts.
Oftentimes, the tools that are used from something as sensitive as cleaning up the area below the belt are taken for granted. That’s a big mistake, and often results in an uncomfortable, and sometimes painful experience. The non-slip palm grip of this trimmer keeps it firmly in place, as the powerful 4,000 RPM motor makes you trim with precision even in the most difficult places.
Set the Stage
Taking the trimmer or razor directly to an untamed hedgerow will only lead to an unpleasant experience. If you’re committed to taking the plunge, it’s important to set the stage to avoid any itching, burning or irritation. Instead, take up the task after a warm shower, and add a shaving gel if you have to.
This way, it will make the process smoother and less painful. Shaving or trimming after a warm shower helps soften the skin, and the warm water naturally lubricates the area to prevent any hair from pulling. The Crop Reviver from Manscaped is your perfect go-to solution for dealing with highly sensitive areas, with herbal extracts reducing inflammation and irritation.
Pubic hair is also coarser and has a lot more curl to them which means it can easily curl into the skin, resulting to ingrown hairs. To keep that from happening, trim the hair to a shorter length, and then finish the job with a razor.
Now that you’ve set the groundwork for your DIY project, it’s time to get down and dirty. To make sure you’re extra cautious while doing this sensitive task, pop a squat in the bathroom. Tug your skin back with one hand while you gently shave the area.
When it’s time to go south of the equator, use your non-dominant hand to keep your sack out of the way. The idea is to keep it as far away from the action as physically possible. Now, you can go to town with the razor.
Be Cautious with Your Crown Jewels
Yes. That time has come. So, you gathered the confidence to uncross your legs and give your nether region a much-need manscape treatment. But, while staring at your junk you may have noticed that your job is not done.
Your shaft and scrotum, in particular are prone to wrinkles and curls, which often results to nicks and cuts if the proper attention has not been paid while manscaping. You’ll need to be extra careful since that also happens to be the favorite place for bacteria, and a huge amount of it, which means, if it gets nicked or cut, the bacteria could go inside and then you’re in all kinds of trouble, like cellutitis and something called lichen planus (you do not want to Google this one).
The point is, you will need to be extra careful down there. We recommend using, the specially designed safety razor from Manscaped. For those who are wondering, this is no ordinary razor. The single-blade design makes shaving through coarse hair a breeze, (but your recommended to take your time for obvious reasons). The safety razor is rust proof, featuring tempered stainless steel and a firm grip that will leave your nads as smooth as The Rock’s dome.
Clean Up Once Your Done
You are going to face at least a couple of days of itching once you’re done manscaping. The specially formulated Crop Cleanser from Manscaped is just the thing you need. The ingredients such as aloe and sea salt have been added to moisturize the area, making it the perfect post-trimming moisturizer after any manscaping activity. If you’re looking for anti-bacterial protection try the Manscaped Crop Preserver that’s designed specifically to keep things clean below deck.
If you’re looking to maintain a more “natural” look, it’s best to follow Newton’s Law of Pubic Proportions, which specifically states that the stubble in your nether region should never be longer than the main event – the shaft. If you’re looking forward to get all trimmed and tidy, Manscaped sells a milder, yet efficient solution for all your manscaping needs, and will save you from having to learn from the errors of your ways.
