As mentioned, shaving the balls needs care. In addition to that, it requires you to have the right grooming tools dedicated to the task. First, you need to have trimming equipment. The equipment will be used to trim the hair before shaving. Secondly, you will need to have an electric shaver, clipper, or safety razor. When you pick the right tools, then prepare your skin for the shave.
Trim the area if you have long hairs
If you have long hairs around your balls, you should first trim them. This will ensure that you have an easy time when shaving and will allow you to achieve a closer shave. Also, trimming the hair will allow you to get a close view of target hairs you intend to get rid of. With that, you will easily shave the ball hairs in few strokes and minimal skin irritation.
Get the area ready!
You need to warm up the scrotal skin to prepare it for a shave. You can do this by taking a hot shower or using a heated towel to warm up the skin. Warming the skin allows more blood to flow to the balls, making the skin around loose and flexible. Cold water can make the skin tight and even cause the balls climb up the stomach.
Apply shave oil
To ensure your skin is not irritated, you need to apply shave oil. The shave oil allows the safety razor to glide smoothly over the scrotal skin cutting the hair evenly. Remember, this is no time for shave cream.
You have to pull the scrotum skin tight for a smooth and comfortable shave. Remember to take it slow; the scrotum skin is highly sensitive and very thin.
Rinse with cold water and apply an aftershave
When you are done, you should rinse your balls with cold water. This closes skin pores, minimizes in-grown hairs, and calms the skin. From there, you should dry the area with a clean towel and apply a layer of aftershave balm to prevent skin irritation and protect the area against bacteria buildup and infection.
Wet shaving is a tradition that inherited very early from my grandfather with whom I lived with since I was only 7 .
