ultimate guide to bikini care

Whether or not you remove pubic hair from your bikini area is your choice. If you fall on the pro hair removal side, you’ll know that keeping your bikini area smooth doesn’t end when you’ve successfully removed it. Pubic hair is coarser, so when it grows, it could turn into ingrown hair and leave unwanted dark marks.

After years of trying various bikini hair removal methods, bikini area smootheners, and other products, we’ve come up with a fool-proof way to keep it smooth and bump-free—you’ll want to flaunt it all day, every day! 

What exactly is the bikini area?

The bikini area typically surrounds the vulva (the external part of your vagina). Usually, the skin and hair aren’t covered by regular underwear or a bikini bottom. 

How do I clean my bikini area?

While the vagina is self-cleaning, the outside can use some TLC. Since it’s a delicate and sensitive area, we recommend using mild soaps and cleansers to clean it.

Where is the bikini area for hair removal?

Bikini waxes often target the hair on the sides of the pubic area, aka your singit, down to the inner thighs, and sometimes on top, as well.

Is it safe to remove all pubic hair in the bikini area?

Of course! Your delicate parts will be in good hands if you do it safely or with a professional. 

What are the safest hair removal methods for your bikini area?

Depending on your budget, lifestyle, and time, you can shave, wax, or laser your bikini area! 



One of the OGs for hair removal! It’s a great option if you don’t have the pain tolerance for waxing or the budget for laser hair removal. To get the smoothest shave down there, you’ll want an extra sharp and clean razor, so it doesn’t drag on your skin and cause razor burn. 

Tip: Before shaving your bikini area, exfoliate it to remove built-up dirt and oil. Use shaving cream to prevent irritation. For pubic hair, shave in the direction the hair naturally grows.

  1. Gillette Venus Smooth Sensitive Razor

    The perfect razor for sensitive areas, like your bikini area! It has three blades for a faster and smoother shave and has a lubricated strip for a more effortless glide.

  2. The Collective Razor

    For fans of old-school razors, The Collective’s version will call to you! It features a textured handle that gives you complete control over the grip, and you only have to replace the razor blades when they become dull—which is more sustainable than buying a new plastic razor. Plus, The Collective’s colors are just so cute!

Waxing is the second best option for your bikini area to remain hair-free longer. It removes hair from the root—instead of just cutting it at the surface, like shaving—so pubic hair grows slower. (Ed’s Note: waxing can cause irritation and redness if you have extra sensitive skin. But it’s nothing a soothing cream or aloe vera gel can’t fix!) 

  1. Lay Bare

    Scared of hot wax being poured on your lady bits? That’s not a problem with Lay Bare since they use sugar wax—a room temperature paste mixed with calamansi juice, honey, and sugar. It hurts less than hot waxing and is a lot less irritating on the skin!

  2. Hunnywax

    If you want to wax your bikini area at home, shop Hunnywax’s Sugar Kit ASAP! Its formula is like Lay Bare’s sugar wax, but you can do cold or hot waxing with this one. For hot waxing, just microwave the jar for 30 seconds to loosen it up and make the application on your bikini area easier.

  3. Strip Manila

    Strip prides itself in its aestheticians’ hygiene and speed with removing hair so clients feel as little pain as possible. Their wax comes in various “flavors”—there are even limited waxes, such as mulled wine and cherry—to make your experience funner!

IPL Devices

IPL is a type of laser hair removal that can be done in the comfort of your home! Unlike diode lasers, this gives skin that “pitik” feeling as it targets the melanin in the hair follicle, heating it up to damage it and break the regrowth cycle. The only downside is IPL devices won’t suit everyone. Those with light blonde, red, or gray hair can’t use this as their hair contains little to no pigment. If you have pale to medium skin and your hair is dark, you’re the perfect candidate for IPL.

  1. DIY Smooth Kit

    This IPL device contains different heat settings. Beginners can start at the lowest level and gradually work their way up! It also has 999,999 flashes, making it usable for over 10 years. And did we mention it comes in fun colors? Choose from Matte White, Rose Gold, and our favorite, BTS Purple!

  2. JML Touch Beauty IPL Hair Removal Device

    JML’s version contains a skin tone sensor. It analyzes if the area is safe for IPL usage; if not, it won’t fire any laser!

Professional Laser Hair Removal

Professional laser hair removal is more powerful (and expensive) than IPL devices, but you’re guaranteed to see hair reduction in just a few sessions. 

  1. Wink Laser Studio

    Wink’s laser hair removal uses GentleMax Pro. It simultaneously emits a quick laser and a coolant spray to soothe the area immediately.

  2. SkinStation

    SkinStation uses a diode laser machine, which is similar to IPL. Both target the melanin in the hair follicle, effectively damaging it to disrupt hair growth. Unlike IPL, though, diode won’t give you that pitik feeling. SkinStation applies a cooling gel on the targeted area for comfort!

How do I prevent ingrown hair in the bikini area?

Ingrown hair occurs when a hair that should grow outwards, grows inward instead. They’re often painful, red, and sore. Anytime you shave or wax your bikini area, there’s a chance you’ll get ingrown hair. The best solution to prevent them is laser hair removal, which reduces the hair that grows back and is usually thin and sparse. 

But if you’re a waxer or shaver, consider doing a weekly routine of gently exfoliating the area to slough off dead skin cells that can clog the hair follicle. You can also use soothing creams or gels to reduce inflammation and reinforce the skin barrier!

How do I brighten the bikini area?

Now that you know the best hair removal method for your bikini area, go ahead and brighten it (if you want to)!
