There are multiple reasons to start exfoliating your bikini area. For starters, it keeps razor burn and ingrown hairs at bay. It also promotes a smoother, closer shave. And, exfoliating your bikini line can treat skin concerns like hyperpigmentation and dryness.
If you want super smooth skin down there this summer, add exfoliation to your skincare and shaving routine. Exfoliation buffs away dead skin cells and dirt, keeping your razor clean and preventing clogged pores and hair follicles that lead to razor bumps.
Here are the five best bikini area exfoliators to start using today.

Here are some steps for exfoliating your bikini line to get the smoothest results.
#1: Apply Scrub
In the shower or tub, take a scoop of scrub, mix it with a little water, and massage it into the bikini area using circular motions.
#2: Let it Sit for a Minute or Two
For active ingredients to fully activate and penetrate the skin, leave the scrub on your skin for 30-60 seconds. This way, all those nourishing ingredients in your scrub will be able to work their strongest and yield the best results.
#3: Rinse Off + Moisturize
Since exfoliation can dry out the skin, you should always follow up with a lightweight lotion or moisturizing serum to hydrate the area and seal in moisture.
If you’re using Smooth Legend Scrub, pair it with our Glazed Donut Glow After Shave Oil, Exfoliating with Blueberry Kush Scrub? Pair it with our Blueberry Kush CBD Body Lotion. For those opting for 24k Gold Cleanser, follow up with Coco Cloud Moisturizer. And if you’re using UF Polish, pair it with Unicorn Fruit Whipped Body Butter to soften and smooth your bikini area.
#4: Treat Bikini Ingrowns and Irritation with Cooka Oil
After exfoliating the bikini area, treat any ingrowns or irritation with our Cooka Oil, a pubic hair and bikini serum.
