Choosing the Right Hair Removal Solution

Unwanted hair can be a nightmare as well as a bother. If it’s time to go out and wear your new dress, or if summer is here and you’re dying to try out the bikini you bought, it’s obvious you’re going to think about removing unwanted hair. But what’s the best way to do it? There are multiple ways to get rid of unwanted fuzz, and the advantage is that you can do this from the comfort of your own home. You need to remember though, that hair elimination is a process and requires preventive measures in order to obtain the best results without the discomfort.

If you wax or use hair removal tools such as an epilator, apply some ice to the area you’re going to be working on and that will help numb the skin to prevent swelling. If your skin is extra sensitive and you want to avoid pain as much as possible, take an ibuprofen or aspirin around 20 minutes before the treatment to dull the sting and minimize the burning feeling. If the aspirin or ibuprofen doesn’t cut it for you, use topical pain inhibitors instead.

So, what technique should you go for? Here’s a list that describes different ways to get rid of unwanted hair:

Bleach

This may seem like cheating but it’s pretty effective at hiding unwanted hair. Make each strand invisible with bleach and avoid more painful hair removal techniques. A great choice if you hate dealing with the sting of a thorough waxing. Remember that not all bleaches are designed for your entire body, so read up on which bleach is meant for what area before buying.

Depilatory Creams

Also called hair removal creams, they make up a part of a gentle process that removes unwanted hair and provide smooth and soft legs for up to two weeks. If you’re fed up of the demanding efforts of waxing, or the nicks of a razor with short-lived results, this is the procedure for you. This cream can be applied anywhere on your body, even the face, though you must take care to avoid sensitive areas like the eyebrows and eyes to prevent irritation.

Electrolysis

if you’ve absolutely had enough of unwanted fuzz and you’re tired of using all the traditional procedures then electrolysis is definitely for you. This procedure is a great option for eliminating hair permanently with the use of electric currents to nip the hair at the root safely and effectively. It’s as simple as that. Use this treatment on your armpits, bikini area and other smallish parts of the body. It’s not recommended for use over larger areas though. You’ll need to plan ahead with plenty of time to spare with this procedure, you may have to wait a week or more between sessions.

Epilators

First of all, what is an epilator? It’s a hair removal tool that uses rotating tweezer-like discs to rapidly pluck out hair with minimum discomfort and can be applied to any part of your body. Enjoy smooth, hairless skin for up to six weeks with this technique. You can also fin smaller, slimmer epilators for sensitive areas such as the eyebrow or upper lip area, which is very convenient.

Razors

Razors and shavers are probably the easiest and most common way of getting rid of unwanted fuzz. The blades slice hair at the surface and can provide smoothness for about or week, maybe more. Razors can be used on almost any area of the body, depending on your skin’s sensitivity. You can choose either regular, hand held razors or convenient battery-operated ones to get the job done.

Sugars

If you want to get remove unwanted hair at the root you can sugar areas of the body and at the same time contribute to the cleaning of the follicles which prevent the formation of ingrown hairs. It’s very similar to the waxing technique, leaving your skin smooth for up to a period of eight weeks. This technique has been used for centuries because of the natural ingredients used that are so gentle on the skin.

Tweezers

Though more time consuming than the other hair removal treatments, it’s a great option for plucking unwanted hair from small, sensitive places such as the eyebrow and general face area. It’s great for retouching and removing stray hairs. Try to pluck each hair as close to the root as you possibly can in the direction that it grows with swift, smooth motions to reduce the sting and to pull all of the hair at once without breaking it.

Waxes

If just hearing someone pronounce the word ‘wax’ makes you cringe, there’s something you should know about this amazingly effective hair removal procedure. When starting out, the process may seem daunting, but nowadays there are so many new and improved products that deliver dramatic results without the pain, so no need to keep flinching whenever someone mentions ‘wax’. Some waxes adhere directly to unwanted hair, keeping pain at a minimum and making them ideal for the bikini area. Remember to leave a tab clear to pull in the opposite direction from the hair growth pattern!

There are risks to removing unwanted hair but before you start to panic, it’s nothing serious, just irritating. A lot of hair removal methods can leave annoying, yet painful ingrown hairs behind if the proper preventive measures haven’t been taken prior to the procedure. With bleaches and hair removal cream ingrown hairs don’t pose a problem, but with the rest, it’s a good idea to find ways to prevent these nuisances and enjoy smooth skin.
