Should you Shave or Should you Wax

Today's digital professional cameras capture every detail of your

smile, body, and curves in high resolution, and if your feminine body parts are not well groomed from your head to your toes and everything in between, it will be noticeable in the photos.

Yes, this can be edited in photoshop, but why give your photographer extra retouching work on something you should have taken care of before the shoot? So, after you have selected the sexy lingerie and the hot bikinis for your next photoshoot, don't skip over your bikini area.

Now the question is should you shave or should you wax.

Shaving Tips

Start by trimming your pubic hair with scissors or a bikini trimmer.


Trim everywhere but avoid your lady parts and leave the hair less than 1 inch long. If you are happy with your hair after trimming, and if this is the look you are going for in your photos, you do not need to do anything more or shave anything. This is all up to you and your personal choice.
Before you shave, soak in the hot shower for 10 minutes or in a warm bath before moving to the shaving.
Lather up with soap or shaving cream, and use a clean sharp blade and shave with the grain the first time.

Do not shave the same spot more than a few times to avoid irritation.

Dr. Julie Harper

Clinical associate professor of dermatology at the University of Alabama-Birmingham and a spokeswoman for Philips says you can avoid irritation by following these tips:

“Treat razor burn and ingrown hairs by gently exfoliating the affected area with a washcloth in the shower, and avoid shaving -- until the redness and irritation have subsided.”

“Resist the urge to perform DIY surgery on razor bumps and ingrown hairs. The bump could get infected and you might be left with an ugly scar. You can try gently lifting ingrown hairs with a toothpick, but don’t use anything too sharp. If the hair doesn’t lift easily, stop, and if the area is tender or hot to the touch, see your doctor.”

To avoid irritation, don't work out or wear tight clothing immediately after shaving. This also includes having sex. Skin can be extra-sensitive to bacteria, moisture, and chafing from your workout clothes.”

For these reasons, shave the day before your beach bikini shoot, not the day of.


Waxing Tips

Many women prefer the longer-lasting results and choose to get a bikini wax. As with many things in life, waxing does get better the more your do it.

Your hairs will start to grow less thick and hurt less when waxed often, and your skin will stay smoother longer as long as you get waxed on a regular basis.

Stop shaving for about 5 days or more.

Before waxing your hair needs to be about 1/4 of an inch long or the size of a grain of rice. The wax needs something to grab onto so you need to have some hair down there for it to work best.

Traditional/Standard Bikini Wax

A traditional bikini wax focuses on the front and sides. It removes the hairs that would be visible in a swimsuit. Most of the time, you can leave your underwear on during a standard/traditional bikini wax.

Brazilian Wax

A Brazilian wax removes more hair than a traditional bikini.
The Brazilian wax removes the hair from the front, sides, back, and everything in between, often leaving only a strip of hair in the front or none at all. 
For a Brazilian wax, you won't wear panties. Yes, you will be completely exposed. Remember that your waxer is a licensed professional and this is what she does all day several times a day.
She will not judge you. Her focus is on doing her job and leaving you smooth. 

A Brazilian wax will leave your skin smoother for a bikini and a lingerie photoshoot. 


After your wax.

Wear cotton loose panties, no thongs, and nothing tight especially tight jeans.

Skin can be extra-sensitive to bacteria, moisture, and chafing from your workout clothes.

Do not do anything that will involve rubbing, or sweating on the day you get waxed. Yes, this includes having sex and having a beach photo-shoot.

Buy Ingrown Hair Serum

Apply it twice a day to keep your skin smooth and prevent ingrown hairs or to treat them if you already have them.  

Get your Bikini wax at least 24 hours before your hot beach photoshoot.

Don't take hot showers or baths for several hours after removing hair. Water that's too hot can irritate pores, causing unwanted bumps and discomfort. 

My wife says waxing down there really doesn't hurt as much as you think it will.

Your waxer will put hot wax on you, which actually feels great, she says. It's warm and soothing. When she rips it off, it does hurt (it stings), but that pain only lasts a few seconds. 


The more you go, the less it hurts. She told me that as you go more often, the root stops growing in and there isn't as much hair to pull out. So don't worry about it and start waxing!
