Will it be something you choose to do in the long run or do you want to get rid of it permanently? Are you willing to invest on something more costly or would you rather do it regularly with less expense? If you have answers to these questions, then you are ready to choose the method on how to remove body hair for you to be bare ready.
First option is tweezing.
Although this is only applicable on small areas of your face, tweezing is easy but time consuming and at first a little painful. Be careful with this, because if you tweeze and a hair breaks off it could grow back but as an ingrown hair.
Shaving, is the most widely used method.
With the use of an electric shaver or razor you cut the hair as close to the skin as possible. Shaving can be done on any part of the body. Shave in the direction the hair grows and replace the razor. A dull razor is more prone to cuts. If you’re shaving in the bikini area, shave carefully to avoid ingrown hairs. Before you shave open your pores by submerging your skin in hot water or simply taking a hot bath. You can also opt to use shaving creams and don’t forget to moisturize after shaving.
It can also be done anywhere in your body. It begins with a sticky substance whether hot or cold and ends up with a cloth strip or in the case of cold waxing the wax itself, stripping the hair out of your skin. Although side effects can include redness and bumps, hair will grow slower compared to shaving. Start waxing with a clean skin, if possible exfoliate first. Every time you wax your hair gets thinner so overtime, growing hair can be less noticeable.
Laser or Pulsed Light.
A trained technician should be the one to do this. It works by destroying the roots with strong beams of light. It can be done in any part of your body. To get your desired result, a certain number of sessions is required depending on how thin or thick your hair is on a specific area. Electrolysis on the other hand is a method in which a tiny needle is inserted inside each hair follicle which destroys the roots with an electric current. A trained expert is needed for this method. Because this method takes more time than the latter, it is best suited for small areas like the upper lip or chin. Several sessions are still applicable.
Whichever method you choose, never ever forget that your skin is always top priority! Other than that, you can now Prepare to Bare!
EXTRA TIPS FOR SMOOTHER SKIN
Put on lotion after removing hair. Lotions reduce the impact of dry skin that results from shaving or tweezing, which causes many skin irritation symptoms.
Proper hydration is a key factor in keeping skin looking healthy, smooth and youthful. Go ahead and wear that short skirt to show off those silky-smooth legs!
