More and more people want to learn how to shave their anus. Whether for hygienic reasons or for aesthetic reasons, this trend has grown a lot in recent times. Some sexual practices are associated with this new trend. Among both heterosexuals and homosexuals, waxing this area increases the pleasure of sex.
Even though the number of people who decide to remove hair from this area has grown, you should know that there are some possible complications such as irritation of the area, discomfort and itching when the hair grows back, and the possibility that the hair will become cystic because the skin cannot be broken.
If you’ve decided to do it anyway, this article will give you tips on how to effectively shave your own anus.
Perianal waxing: all you need to know
If you want to learn how to remove anal hair, the first thing you need to know is that this practice is directly related to depilation of the perianal area. The perineum is the skin that covers the muscles of the pelvic floor, between the vagina and the anus in women, and between the scrotum and the anus in men. To remove the hair, you must know that this is a very delicate area, in which it is advisable to use specific methods, otherwise you could damage yourself.
The perianal and interglute area is usually waxed, especially in summer, as it can be more exposed when going to the beach or pool, where bathing suits and bikinis are often used. If you practice nudism or like to sunbathe naked, you must be very careful in this area and always apply a high sunscreen factor. After depilation the area is very sensitive and if you don’t use sunscreen you could irritate it.
If this is the first time you have waxed this area, it is advisable to go to a beauty centre, where a professional will show you the most effective way to remove hair from this intimate area. Once you’ve seen how it’s done, you can bring him home on your own. However, it is always advisable to do this with the help of another person, as it is very difficult to see the area correctly.
On the other hand, you can do it with the help of a mirror, but keep in mind that you cannot use just any kind of hair removal method. The blade, for example, is strongly discouraged in this area, as it could cause serious cuts and infections.
Next, let’s see how to wax your own anus at home.
Male and female anal hair removal
There is no difference between male and female anal hair removal. Both sexes should proceed in the same way when depilating the perianal area. The only thing that changes is the amount of hair, which will be larger in men and smaller in women.
This intimate depilation must be done with great care, as it is a very sensitive area. There are no studies that show that removing hair in this area increases the risk of infection. Yes, extreme precautions must be taken.
Below we explain the steps you should follow to remove hair from this intimate area effectively.
Anal waxing: easy steps to follow!
These depilatory methods are more abrasive to the skin, but the result is longer lasting. Always read the instructions on each package carefully before starting.
1️⃣First wash the area well with a neutral soap. This is important because the anus is a place where many bacteria accumulate.
2️⃣The proper position is to lie down on your back with a mirror placed on your feet so you can see the area well. Another good position is to squat with the mirror resting on the floor. Although it may seem a little uncomfortable, this position will ensure that you see what you are doing well.
3️⃣A magnifying mirror will help you to see the area well.
4️⃣If you are confident enough with a friend or partner, a good option will be to get on all fours by opening your buttocks with your hand. The person you trust will stand behind you and will be in charge of performing the waxing.
5️⃣If your hair is long enough, cut it off with a pair of scissors before you start. This will make hair removal easier and less painful. Just don’t cut too much or your hair might not stick and it would stop being effective.
6️⃣If you are doing it without the help of anyone, with one hand you tighten the skin on one side of the anus. With your free hand, place your chosen method of hair removal at the root. You have to do the placement in the opposite direction to where the hair grows.
7️⃣After that, pull hard. The pull has to be dry and firm. Try to do it as close to the body as you can so it won’t hurt as much.
8️⃣Repeat the operation until all the hair has been removed. If you are going to go over the area, it is advisable to apply talcum powder so that it does not hurt so much. You will also avoid skin irritation.
9️⃣Apply an oil that is used for baby’s skin or a little olive oil to remove any excess product that may be left. The product should be easily disposed of.🔟When you have finished, apply an aloe vera gel or a post-depilatory cream. This will cool the area and prevent the skin from becoming inflamed or irritated.
