5 Easy Ways To Get Rid Of The Unwanted Body Hair
The most conventional and popular at-home hair removal method is shaving. It's also affordable and quick. It is also important to take proper care of the shaved areas after the process. Proper gentle exfoliation helps to decrease the chances of in-growns while lotion, creams and oils applied later would soften the skin. You need to be extra careful and use other devices than the normal razor to shave sensitive areas.
It's similar to waxing which removes the hair from the roots. Epilating uses mechanical actions to pull out the hair. They look like electric hair shavers but they remove the hair from the root level which results in hairless skin for a longer time.
3. Depilatory Creams
Using chemicals, these creams or lotions remove the hair off the body without plucking it from the roots. It kind of dissolves the hair from the surface and if applied properly, it may give you silky smooth arms and legs. However, as chemical reactions are involved in the process, it is always advisable to conduct a patch test on a small area of the skin or incase you have sensitive skin, to avoid this method all-together.
Just like waxing, sugaring too removes the hair from follicles. But the sugaring process is conducted at room temperature and is done in the same direction as that of the hair growth unlike waxing, which pulls off the hair in the opposite direction. Sugaring may not be as painful as waxing as the sugars do not stick to the skin as the wax does.
5. Laser Treatments
One of the most wide-spreading techniques for hair removal these days is laser treatments. The process is painless, easy and gives a prolonged hairless body. However, it is expensive as compared to other hair-removal methods. The laser method involves a series of seating at the salons and best done under supervision.
