1. Avoid bacteria on the skin

With intimate shaving, it's easy to get red and itchy bumps on the skin shortly after shaving. These red bumps are also known as razor bumps and are caused by bacteria entering the skin pores.

That's why keeping your skin clean is the most important part of a successful intimate shave without red bumps. In the shower, before shaving, you should therefore wash yourself with the wash included in this complete intimate shaving pack for men.

All products contain Tea Tree Oil, which effectively fights bacteria. The wash effectively cleanses the skin of bacteria with natural actives, leaving the skin ready for shaving.

When you're about to shave, it's also important to warm up your skin with warm water. This softens both skin and hair, making it more pliable before shaving.

Finally, rinse your skin thoroughly and use the pack's intim balm, which quickly soothes and cools delicate skin after shaving, leaving it feeling fresh and healthy. In addition, the after shave provides your skin with the best nourishment. Intim balm deeply moisturises to strengthen your skin and make it extra resilient. It's suitable for all skin types - even the most sensitive skin.


2. Your razor is yours alone 

For a beautiful and close intimate shave, remember that your razor is your private razor. This means you can't share it with anyone else - not even your partner. We all have bacterial flora on our skin, and if you share a razor with others, you'll get the foreign bacteria into your hair follicles and have to deal with unsightly razor bumps.

Also, when shaving, remember to use a sharp and clean razor. A dull blade will damage and tear your skin, leaving you with cuts and red bumps. Before you swing the blade, apply a intim shave from Australian Bodycare, which, like Australian Bodycare's other products, contains Tea Tree Oil to counteract the bacteria that cause red razor bumps. Intim shave is transparent, so you have full control over your intimate shave and the blade glides more easily against the delicate skin in the intimate area.


3. Use clean efficient products

Even though perfume smells great, it's hard on the skin to be exposed to the harsh alcohol that perfume contains. That's why it's important to care for your skin before, during and after intimate shaving with nourishing and strengthening products. All our products are dermatologically tested and are therefore suitable for sensitive skin. With Tea Tree Oil as one of the main active ingredients in Australian Bodycare, you get effective care for your skin before, during and after shaving, while effectively counteracting the bacteria that cause red razor bumps.

Post-shave care is often forgotten, but it's just as important. The skin is extra delicate after shaving and therefore still exposed to bacteria. Use an intim balm, for example, which is especially good for moisturising and keeping hair follicles clean so that the skin stays smooth and beautiful after shaving.


Bonus-tip: Don't shave before sports 

While you may be able to shave your intimate area just before you go to the gym, it's a bad idea. After shaving, your hair follicles are more open and therefore more susceptible to bacteria. Sweat is not sterile and contains a lot of bacteria that can crawl into hair follicles and give you irritated skin and red, inflamed bumps. That's why you should always wait until after you've finished your workout before shaving.


Why you get red bumps after shaving 

If you haven't realised this yet, we'd like to remind you again. You get unsightly red bumps after intimate shaving because your hair follicles and pores open up and become infected with bacteria. It's a kind of inflammation, which is why the red bumps sometimes resemble small pimples.

So, when it comes to achieving a clean and beautiful intimate shave, it's important to have the right equipment and products to maintain a hygiene that is able to fight bacteria. Thanks to Tea Tree Oil's antiseptic properties, it is indispensable in the fight against red razor bumps - and products with this antibacterial agent ensure a flawless intimate shave.


How to avoid razor bumps, ingrown hairs and red bumps with the right products:

1. Wash the area with Intim Wash to remove bacteria.

2. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

3. Apply Shave Gel, wait one minute and shave in the direction of the hair.

4. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

5. Apply after shave to the area after shaving.
