Start with the armpits. Trimming here will help reduce excessive sweating and the risk of any pesky hairs poking out from your t-shirt – not a good look. Pop a short grade attachment onto a set of clippers and shave with the grain in short strokes.
Shaving your back evenly is virtually impossible without assistance. If you have a partner that’s willing to help, ask them to take care of you. If not, don’t mess around – get booked in with a professional waxer and save yourself a whole load of hassle.
If you want to trim your leg and arm hair, use a medium attachment on your electric razor to cut a few centimetres off. Most men prefer to keep some hair on these areas, but it’s totally down to personal preference.
Lastly, move on to the delicate sack, crack and buttocks. Remember, this area is extra sensitive, so don’t rush. Start by attaching a protective guard onto an electric body trimmer and trim your pubes down to a manageable length. Then, prepare the skin and soften hairs further with a pre-shave oil to ensure the razor can glide easily. Create a rich lather with a shaving cream and shaving brush (using a brush will help exfoliate the area and raise hairs up and away from the skin, resulting in a cleaner shave). Once you’re all lathered up and ready to go, reach for a brand-new blade – blunt blades are prone to dragging across the skin and tugging at hair, rather than slicing through them, so don’t be tempted to use an old razor. Gently pull the skin taut to create a flatter, smoother surface to shave, then very gently shave your balls, following the natural grain of your hair’s growth. You can then carefully move onto the crack and buttocks, with the help of a mirror to guide you along the way.
Once you’ve finished, apply a post-shave balm or moisturiser to protect and rehydrate the skin.
