Hair removal is often a tricky subject to discuss. Although there are a lot of tips and tricks on how to effectively remove (unwanted) hair from different parts of the body, there are still plenty of misconceptions and myths circulating among women. Whether you’re trying to do some tidying up down there or you simply want to have clean, beautiful legs for the season, these are some of the most important things to keep in mind.
Know Your Gadgets
There are plenty of hair removal gadgets designed specifically for women. Before you shop for one, however, it is important that you know the different products available and how they can be used for hair removal.
An epilator, for instance, is a great replacement for waxing and razors. Epilators work really well for removing soft hair from your legs and other parts of the body. You will get a smooth finish that lasts longer too. However, it is not designed to remove longer or thicker hair.
For that, you need a trimmer. A trimmer is for grooming the bikini line and removing coarser hair. It is usually small and can handle thicker hair as well as tough spots. You can use a trimmer before you use an epilator to get the results you want.
It’s Okay to Trim or Shave
One of the most common misconceptions about shaving is that it will cause your hair to grow back thicker and darker. This is actually not true. You can shave certain parts of your body and get great results without having to worry about the hair growing back thicker.
The rate at which your hair regrows depends on a lot of things, including your diet and your hormones, but shaving and trimming will not affect that rate. That said, trimming and shaving are not the methods to use for permanent hair removal.
If you’re looking for a more permanent result, the right hair removal cream or a series of laser treatments is the better way to go. Be sure to pick a suitable treatment depending on the sensitiveness of your skin to avoid any unwanted side effects.
Removal Creams Can Remove All
One last thing to remember when it comes to removing hair with creams is to use the right cream based on your skin and the hair you want to remove. No, you can’t just use an over-the-counter hair removal cream and expect it to do magic.
For starters, hair removal cream is not for removing facial hair. A lot of women suffer from rashes and flakey skin because they use creams meant to be used on the legs or other parts of the body to remove facial hair.
More importantly, the available hair removal creams are not designed to remove thicker hair as well. They are best for legs and underarms and they can help remove softer hair effectively. Be sure to read the instructions that come with the hair removal product for more details on how to use it properly.
Now that you know these basic things about hair removal, you can get that smooth skin you want using the correct methods. You’ll have much better results and can easily avoid unnecessary risks and side effects along the way.
