Let’s be honest: Every man wants a handsome penis. One of the ways many men strive to achieve that goal is through removing the hair on or around the penis. This has been rumored to boost penis sensitivity, make the penis appear larger, and please the partners who prefer someone to be a little less hairy. But with so many options for hair removal on the market, what’s a man to do? He needs to look for a way to be as gentle as possible to the delicate penis skin. Here are the options.

Penis Skin Protection During Hair Removal

Let’s take a look at the five most popular methods of hair removal and how to protect the penis skin while performing them:

- Trimming. This is by far the least problematic when it comes to penis skin, as there is no actual hair removal happening - it’s simply trimming down close to the skin with a sharp pair of scissors, carefully cutting away rogue hairs and long strands. This neatens up the area nicely without leaving behind any bumps or potential cuts from a razor. Stand up to perform the trimming, use great lighting to see everything, and take plenty of time - rushing can lead to nicks.

- Shaving. If a man wants a smooth look and feel, shaving is the easiest answer. To do it properly, place a warm wet cloth on the area to be shaved. Leave it there for a few minutes to soften the skin. Then, use a high-quality shaving gel or cream to cover the area. Using a sharp razor, carefully shave away the hair, using the free hand to pull the skin taut to avoid nicks. Rinse and pat dry when finished, then use a good penis health crème to moisturize.

- Tweezing. This is appropriate if there are a few stray hairs on the penis that need to be removed. Pull the skin taut before tweezing. Use a good pair of tweezers and pluck each hair in the direction of growth. This can cause some irritation, so take caution when tweezing hairs. Don’t do more than a few! As always, follow up with a good penis health creme.

- Hair removal cream. This is an easier way to go about removing the hair, but what does it do to the delicate penis skin? It’s important to choose a product specifically designed for the hair down there - it needs to be free of fragrance and harsh chemicals. To use, test an area of skin on the inside of the arm 24 hours beforehand to ensure no allergic reaction. Don’t shave in the days before use. Apply as instructed, and wait the appropriate amount of time, then wash away the cream with warm water. Always be on the lookout for a penis rash when using these products!

- Waxing. Though waxing can be done at home, to ensure the best health of the penis skin - and the most handsome penis! - a man should always go to a professional salon for the waxing. This helps ensure there are no mistakes, and the professionals there can help alleviate any concerns by using top-quality products and techniques. Waxing can be quite painful, and the penis skin will need serious aftercare to ensure the irritation, redness and swelling go away as soon as possible. Talk to the salon specialist about exactly what to do, given the particular technique or wax he or she used.

Maintaining Good Penis Care

All these methods have a common theme, and that’s finishing up with a good penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin). A man should look for a crème that contains Shea butter and vitamin E to soften skin, vitamin C to help combat the potential penis rash, and vitamin A for its antibacterial properties.
