Collaborative Post | Most bodies have hair and whether you embrace it proudly or want to remove it the choice is yours! If you do opt for the latter there is an abundance of ways to go about hair removal, and it can be overwhelming, so hopefully, this guide will help you understand your options.
Shaving is the easiest and can be the most cost-effective option when it comes to hair removal and is also great when you’re in a rush with no time to prep. However, the results don’t last long and you can cause damage to your skin. If you do opt to shave, be sure to use a clean, fresh blade to reduce the risk of pulling the skin and causing any ingrown hairs.
Waxing lasts longer than shaving as it removes hair directly at the follicle and can leave you hair free for up to 6 weeks making it a popular alternative to other types of hair removal. From wax strips used with soft wax to hard wax, sugar wax and chocolate wax, there is a range of types that you can use.
Waxing can be difficult to do yourself (unless you have a high pain tolerance!) so you may consider heading to a local beautician who will be trained in this. With continual waxing, regrowth will be much finer and over time individual hairs may stop growing altogether leaving you with sparser coverage
Laser hair removal
While the outright cost of laser treatment is more expensive than other options, after a few sessions for many people this is a permanent way to remove hair.
Laser hair removal involves using a powerful laser or intense light to destroy the hair follicle, disrupting hair growth and removing unwanted hair. It can generally be used on all skin types but is most effective on those of us with light skin and darker hair
If you aren’t looking for complete removal, trimming could be a great idea, especially for intimate areas. You can use an electric razor or a pair of scissors to cut the hair to your desired length while protecting the skin from the irritation that can occur with shaving.
Epilating is similar to waxing in that hair is removed directly from the root. While it can be slightly painful, and some areas are more sensitive than others, it leaves skin smoother for longer and is great for short hair removal, unlike waxing. There is a range of epilators available including wet and dry, and there are also epilators specific for coarse hair which have more tweezer heads and stronger motors.
No matter how you choose to remove your body hair, or if you wish to keep it as is, remember that you are fabulous as you are!
