For girls, hair removal is an important part of our regular beauty routine. The following are some methods that you can use to get rid of that unwanted hair.
This works by pulling out individual hairs by the root with tweezers. It's best for small areas of the face: eyebrows. Clean tweezers with rubbing alcohol before and after each use to lower your chance of infection.
Shaving is the most basic, fastest and painless method for getting rid of body hair and it works anywhere! You can buy razors and shaving creams at grocery stores, pharmacies and even gas stations! Shaving does not hurt but you can cut yourself becuase razors have sharp blades. Shaving can last up to a week before the hair is visible again.
This is my favorite, yes it hurts but the pain is brief. Waxing strips out all of hair at once by pulling it out of you skin with a strong adhesive. Hair removal wax comes in two forms, a wax that you apply then press paper strips to, or strips with wax already stuck to them. This is often done at a salon, but you can buy at-home waxing kits as. Waxing is another safe way to remove hairs, but don't do it around sensitive areas of skin as it can cause rashes and discomfort. Waxing is generally done on the chest, arms, legs, armpits and bikini area. Waxing can last between 3 to 6 weeks!
4. Hair Removal Creams
This is done in the comfort of your own home and this method is easier if you're prone to accidental cutting from razors, or have trouble shaving. Some people have an allergic reaction to the chemicals which may result in a rash. Hair removal creams are one of the safest options providing you don't have an allergy to them. To check if you do have an allergy you can start by applying a small amount to the back of your hand, waiting five minutes and noting if any symptoms occur like itchiness, irritation or rash, if you do get symptoms, maybe hair removal cream isn't your best option.
5. Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an effective method to remove hair completely from your body, minimizing future hair growth, however, laser treatments require a lot of patience and money. See a laser hair-removal specialist for a consultation. Go when you have a full hair growth, this will help the specialist to have an idea about the thickness and properties of your hair which would help them to decide the radiation intensity to use. It takes 6-10 appointments to fully remove hair. In order to completely clear your body, you need to have at least 6 sittings of laser hair removal. It can also be painful but the results can last a long time.
