Odds are, when you dip below the neck, your everyday razor isn't going to cut it — literally. If you choose to shave your body, the best body hair trimmers for men can tackle courser, longer hair without irritating sensitive areas. The market is flooded with options, but the best of the best are largely water-resistant, durably built, and optimized for the particular body part you're grooming.
Before you start shopping, narrow down the area that will get the most attention from your new hair removal tool. Most electric trimmers designed for the body can handle the chest, underarms, and legs, but check the specifications and the reviews if you're looking to groom the back or below the belt. (Consider both accessibility and sensitivity.)
Also take into consideration the battery source and whether or not you want to take the shaver in the shower with you. Both are a matter of portability and convenience, but the latter may also help to create a more comfortable shave; dermatologists have noted that heat and moisture help to soften body hair, which could reduce shaving irritation.
Scroll on for four of the best body trimmers on the market — all of which are well-made, highly reviewed, versatile, and effective.
