Unwanted body hair can send an image that we don’t want to send. Simply put, it is a nuisance that has to go. Here are a few methods to make removing hair simpler, ranging from the most time consuming to the quickest hair removal methods.
One of the best ways to save time is to do two things at once. Applying shaving cream and using a manual razor takes more time. So, save your self some time by getting a rechargeable electric razor that doesn’t require you to apply shaving cream so that you can get your daily shaving done while you shower.
Hair removal lotion (aka depilatory cream) can be used in as little as five minutes on thick hair and is even quicker on thin hair. If you do not mind the smell, hair removal lotions are a quick option that leaves moisture in your skin and can slow the regrowth of hair.
Epilators are tweezing machines. And, the good news is there are wet/dry epilators like shavers, so you can use them in the shower too. They are a little bit more difficult to use than razors because you have to make sure not to get your skin caught, but they are a great option for those who don’t like removing hair every day.
Waxing is obviously another popular option because it removes the hair with promises of it growing back less frequently. Waxing can be a bit painful and a difficult process if you miss hairs and have to wax the same area again. Most areas have waxing professionals though if you don’t mind shelling out a little more cash.
Sugaring is a technique that you really have to learn or trust to professional. The hair is removed in the same way as waxing, but the skin is not irritated as much. However, if you are doing the sugaring process as home be careful because it is easy to burn your skin.
You can find buffing mitts for hair removal in most beauty or pharmacy sections of stores. Buffing is another skill, like sugaring, that you really have to practice and learn. Additionally, it does not work as well on coarse hair. But, it’s great to be able to exfoliate skin and remove unwanted hair at the same time though.
The idea of permanent hair removal is alluring to many. There are at-home laser removal kits now. And, this is another hair removal method where you can burn your skin if you do not know what you’re doing. Laser hair removal requires a combination of shaving and removing the hair by laser periodically. If you really want to get rid of stubborn hair, its a good option, and it may be a good idea to look for professionals like dermatologists in your area.
Electrolysis is probably one of the slowest and painful ways to remove hair. However, it promises semi-permanent to permanent results. If you have a high pain tolerance or can find a good aesthetician that will numb the area well for you, then you may want to explore this option.
