Why Safety Matters so Much When Manscaping
Manscaping has gained popularity in recent years—so much so that there's now an entire industry built around the process of keeping one's privates in a perfectly presentable state. While the act of trimming the hair down there is important, the safety involved with such an endeavor is equally as important. There are a lot of hazards you can encounter if you're not taking your men's grooming regimen seriously. Here's what you need to know:
1. There's a Lot of Bacteria Around Your Balls
Even the most well-kempt men are susceptible to ball bacteria. It's natural for your body to produce sweat, which inherently breeds bacteria in areas that are kept moist and dark for extended periods of time.
Why is this an important tidbit of knowledge?
When you're shaving your balls, you're working a very sharp blade across super sensitive parts of your body. These parts often hold a significant amount of bacteria. While those colonies of critters aren't necessarily harming your day-to-day functioning (besides leaving you with swamp crotch on toasty days), they're active and readily standing by to find their way into your bloodstream as soon as you nick your precious parts. Even the smallest cut can lead the way for microorganisms to work their way into your skin and blood.
Before you shave, give your guys a good wipe down with a body cleanser that's formulated for your down-below area. Crop Cleanser, with its pH-balanced ingredients, is the perfect accompaniment to any manscaping adventure. This body wash not only battles bad bacteria, but it also regulates your skin's natural sebum activity, ensuring you keep a hydrated and just-moist-enough set of junk in your trunk.
It's important to use tools that are specifically designed for your lower area so you don't have to worry about micro-nicks that can send you to the hospital. The last thing you want to experience is an infection around your private parts. The pain and discomfort can be sincerely overwhelming. Do yourself a favor and trim your bush first using The Lawn Mower 2.0. Thanks to its horizontal blade structure, it won't rip or pull your hairs, so you don't have to worry about open pores being susceptible to bacteria-induced invitations. This tool quickly and efficiently wipes the hair away, and since it's protected with SkinSafe™ technology, you can rest assured that your testicles will come out of the experience unscathed.
If you're looking for a closer shave, The Plow is the next tool you need to reach for. It's double-edged, easy-glide design was created to ensure below-the-belt parts are protected and taken care of when you want to get the hair off your balls. Traditional razors—or cheap blades you'll find at your local grocery store—aren't equipped with the engineering that's meant to move effortlessly along your hard-to-reach areas. The Plow, on the other hand, was designed solely for this task.
2. Accidents Are Never Intended to Happen
...That's why we call them accidents.
If you accidentally nick your scrotum, you'll soon realize what blood really looks like. That area is filled with tons of blood vessels (they serve a certain purpose when you're in a situation of excitement), which means there are ample opportunities for a bloody situation if you're not careful. Besides the fact that blood is an obvious discomfort to experience in your lower region, a nicked scrotum can set you up for painful infections if you don't take care of it properly.
Always make sure your hands and balls are clean and dry before you dive into the escapade of manscaping. This not only removes the bad bacteria that can inflict pain on your privates, but it also ensures you have a dry surface on which to work. Of course, you'll want to be sure you use a lather or shaving oil that's designed for below-the-belt shaving before you actually put the blade into action.
3. Ingrown Hairs Are No Laughing Matter
If you've ever had an ingrown hair, you know what we're talking about. Especially in the pubic region, your hairs are coarse and curly, which can spell an itchy, uncomfortable disaster if you don't tend to them correctly. If you shave long hair with a razor right away, the remaining hair will likely curl up and hide underneath your skin. This produces bumps, irritation, and sometimes even rashes.
To prevent this problem, make sure you always trim your lower region first. The Lawn Mower 2.0 was designed to clip your short-and-curlies in a way that doesn't cause them to get pulled or ripped from the roots. (Both of which are just as painful as they sound.) The trimming process also enables your razor to do the job it's supposed to do without leaving excess follicles that could otherwise shrink down below the surface of the skin.
4. Shaved Balls Do No Good If They're Sweaty and Smelly
So, you took your time to make sure you didn't create any unwanted nooks and crannies when you were un-fuzzing your phallus. Great work! But, now, you'll be stepping into boxers or briefs and heading out to enjoy your day.
Here's a tip: nobody cares how much care you took on your ball-shaving expedition if they're too smelly to be around.
After you've trimmed and shaved, be sure to step in the shower to get the remaining hair and all-day goo away from your goods. When you're fresh and clean, towel-dry your lower half and apply Crop Preserver. This ball deodorant will keep your guys fresh, clean, and dry as the day drags on. Thanks to its antibacterial action, you can rest assured you have fewer colonies of critters hiding in your crotch so you can be confident when you walk into a room or toss your clothes in the corner.
5. An Improper Shave Can Lead to Uncomfortable Friction
By definition, shaving places a very sharp razor against very sensitive skin. Even in the most careful of situations, you can irritate that skin by simply doing the task you set out to do. It's important to mind your man parts and protect them from the wears and tears of the day with a barrier spray that's specially formulated for those sensitive spots. Crop Reviver, Manscaped's toner and refresher, was designed to do just that. This little spritzer reduces irritation and inflammation by way of the aloe and witch hazel ingredients that are packed into every bottle. It provides just the right amount of hydration your skin needs to feel comfortable after it's been exposed to a razor.
6. A Rush Job is No Good for a Blow Job
It's true. No man wants someone's lips on him for a split-second. Your balls feel the same way about your razor. They want you to give them the time and attention they deserve. Hurried manscaping moments almost always lead to cuts—or worse, trips to the hospital. Don't do a rush job on the place where you could get a blow job. Instead, set some time aside to do it right. The night before a big event is usually fine because your hair isn't going to grow back instantaneously. If you're heading out for a big date, set aside an hour to manscape. You may not need all 60 minutes, but the extra time will ensure you're not feeling rushed to get the job done.
It's important to find the right position. Prop one leg up on your toilet and place The Magic Mat beneath your feet to catch the hair that falls from its follicles. After you've trimmed the top tresses, take easy strides from the back to the front, taking care to pull your skin taut as you go.
If you're ready to embark on a male grooming regimen that's safe, thorough, and will leave you with the socially acceptable pubic region you've been hoping for, Manscaped is your solution. Buy yourself The Perfect Package 2.0 to ensure you're taking care of your grooming needs without any worries!
