Shaving

Shaving is the process of removing body hair with a sharp blade. It is usually done for cosmetic purposes, but can also be done for purposes of sanitation. It is common to shave an area of the body before a surgical procedure. Shaving is also done for competitive reasons, such as increasing speed while swimming.

How can you remove hair from around the penis?

If I were you, I would shave it or wax it, but if you shave then very very AND I MEAN VERY carefully.

Hair removal cream, pluck. Each method has it's risks and pain level.

The most common way for a male to remove unwanted pubic hair is to shave carefully and slowly with plenty of shaving cream and warm water.

Be very careful if you use depilatory crèmes. Some of these contain strong alkalis you don't want anywhere near sensitive areas. (I'm not sure I'd want them anywhere near any of me!)

What is a homemade recipe to get rid of red bumps after shaving your genital region?

Genital hair is there for a very good reason (to protect against bacteria) but there are reasons you might need to shave the hair off.

Get "Epsom Salts" from your local drug store. It's always on the shelf and if you can't find it just ask for it. Epsom Salts is used for sore muscles and is great for sunburns and irritations of the skin. Pour 1/2 to 1 cup of Epsom Salts into a little boiling water, just enough to melt the salts and pour it into your bath water. DO NOT USE BUBBLE BATH! Then lay in it for 15 - 20 minutes and enjoy! One time should do it, but if it doesn't do it, try a couple of times. Epsom Salts was used by men in the steel mill for drawing out steel slivers, has many other useful purposes, and it is good to always have around your home.

You could also try a warm compress with antibacterial soap 3 times a day, or us hair conditioner to lubricate the area before and after shaving. The hair in that region curls and has sharp edges from the razor. This causes irritation and bumps.

Why is shaving important?

If you meaning shaving the face there are a few reasons why it can do some good. For one, it looks better on most men. Another reason is that it is more hygienic as beards can trap food, etc. Beards can also cause acne, as you might not be able to wash your skin as easily, it also can't breath as easily, and won't absorb moisturizer as readily. Another great reason to shave is it can actually prevent aging somewhat. Have you ever noticed that men at the same age as women tend to have firmer more line free skin? This is because men are exfoliating their skin daily while shaving, not allowing wrinkles to form, because they remove some of the top layer of the skin. Though, of course, some people find beards and facial hair very attractive, and some men look better with it than without. Say you have a weak chin, a beard can often make it look as though it's bigger. If you have big fishy lips you don't like a mustache can hide them and make them appear normal.

Does shaving off the scalp hair make any difference in the growth of strong hair?

None whatsoever. ---- acutually, it will just make it weaker. Think of this, if you wax on a patch of hair multipul times, meaning when i grows back waxing it agian, it just grows lighter and weaker. So if you are going to shave off all your hair, its just going to make it weaker. But if you do shave off all your hair, may i suggest giving it off to chairity?

When shaving the face and pubic region should you shave with or against the direction of growth?

You want to shave with the grain/direction of growth.

For a closer shave you can go against if you know the areas on yourself well enough because they can become irritated, bumpy, and itchy after this.

How do women like men to shave?

There is no specific answer to this since it varies per woman, and a lesser degree per man. Many women prefer men who are clean shaven. Other women like some facial hair since it showcases masculinity, but short and neatly trimmed. Other women like a full beard and mustache.

So the best way to find out is to ask your girlfriend, spouse, or women of the type you are interested in (even if they specifically are not into you).

When should you start shaving your legs?

Um..... I just asked to start shaving my legs TODAY.. and I am twelve. If you have light blond hair, Its not a big deal to shave. But if you have brown hair like me, you should shave at twelve or thirteen.... Hope this helps!

She's right. It all depends on how much you can see the hair. And how obvious it is.

Can shaving cause dieasise?

It's not a good idea to share a blade razor if you're worried about disease, but in general, shaving can reduce the buildup of bacteria around your mouth. Hair tends to get dirty quickly, and shaving reduces the number of places that microorganisms can live.

If you're trying to find an excuse to NOT shave and looking at health reasons, sorry, that one doesn't work. But if you are able to keep your beard clean and trimmed you can reduce the potential of building up an unhygienic condition in your beard.

Can you use deodorant after shaving your armpit?

I can't see why not.

Some scientists feel that certain ingredients in deodorant are harmful or cancerous- even though there is no conclusive scientific evidence or long term study results-

when you use deoderant after you shave your skin in torn and cut, so whatever comes in contact with your skin will be able to penetrate your body- I would wait at least an hr if you are concerned.
