Excessive body hair can make you feel uncomfortable or awkward, but there are ways to make it go away. There are many different methods suitable for you to refer to and choose the right way of hair removal.
Shaving is a simple and effective way to remove body hair. Although shaving makes the hair grow thicker and faster, there has always been a claim, but there is no scientific basis behind this claim. Apply shaving cream to the affected area and use a razor suitable for body hair to reduce skin irritation. Shave in the direction of hair growth to reduce the risk of cutting the skin and make it easier to trim the hair.
While you are waiting for other methods to reduce hair, shaving one area of hair can temporarily reduce the amount of hair. Shaving causes ingrown hairs, but before waxing or shaving, you can massage the hair area with soap or cleanser, which helps to remove the hair from the follicles.
Waxing can be painful, but it’s really effective at reducing body hair growth. Since the hair is removed from the root, the hair grows back finer, thinner, and slower. You can either buy wax to apply yourself at home or go to a spa or salon to get a professional wax treatment.
If you’re waxing at home, use hard wax for sensitive areas such as your face, underarms, and bikini area. Soft wax can be used on other areas, such as your legs, back, chest, and arms.
You can buy wax you heat in the microwave and fabric strips in most major retailers. You can also buy premade wax strips if you don't want to deal with melting your own wax.
Wax about once every 2 weeks for the best results. Do not use wax on damaged skin. If you have open sores, pimples, or a skin infection, wait until the area is completely healed.Waxing can lead to discoloration if you have darker skin.
Use a pair of tweezers to pluck out individual hairs, or visit a salon or cosmetologist for a professional tweezing. Pulling the hairs out by the root will slow down their growth and reduce the appearance of your body hair. Tweezing can be painful and can cause skin irritation.
Hair removal cream is a chemical cream that can dissolve the hair above the skin. Although your hair may grow out faster than depilatory, the hair may be thinner and lighter due to the bleaching properties of these creams. Follow the instructions on the package to apply the paste to remove body hair.
This method is much less harmful than waxing and will not cause skin irritation like shaving. You can buy this cream at your local department store or order it online. You can also buy creams specifically designed for specific parts of your body, such as the face, bikini area, and legs.
