Hair Removal: Which Method’s for You?

Ready to say goodbye to that excess hair on your body? Whether you’re looking to remove the hair on your upper lip, around and between your eyebrows, on your legs or on your sensitive parts, we’ve got you covered. Read on for some of the many methods of hair removal, as well as some tips to consider.

Shaving

By far the most widely-used method of hair removal, shaving relies on the use of razors to get rid of hair. Shaving is best suited for leg, arm and facial hair (think: beards and moustaches). Shaving, however, can cause ingrown hairs, as it only cuts off hairs at the surface of the skin. Beware of cuts, too, especially when dealing with bony areas of the body, such as your knees.

Looking for good-quality razors? Try the Gillette Three-Blade Turbo Razor or the Bic Twin Blade Sensitive Razor. Always remember to moisturise after you shave.

Waxing

Hot waxing involves applying heated wax on the skin. The hair gets fused to the wax as it cools and dries, at which point you rip the wax off.

Sound messy and painful? It can be (there’s no avoiding the pain of having your hair ripped out!), but only if you’re not careful. Make sure the wax is hot enough to spread easily, but not hot enough to burn your skin. Waxing can also be done by a professional, especially to target the bikini area, but waxing can be easily done at home to remove hair from the upper lip.

To avoid the hassle of heating up wax, you can also buy wax strips (like Nad’s Body Wax Strips for Sensitive Skin or Nair Body Wax Strips). If you’re using certain prescription acne creams, avoid waxing, as it will pull a layer of your skin off.

Hair Removal Cream

Also known as depilatory creams, hair removal creams use chemicals to dissolve the hair shaft. Not all hair removal creams are built the same, so be sure to read the label for use. Different types of hair on your body will require different strengths of cream.

Creams designed to tackle the thicker hair of the bikini region, for example, shouldn’t be used on your face.

Try this Veet Face Hair Removal Cream, as well as this Nad’s For Men Removal Cream for the Body.

Plucking

Perfect for targeting small areas, like the eyebrows or the upper lip, plucking is performed with tweezers and allows you to pull out hairs one by one. This method can be a bit time-consuming and painful, though certainly not as painful as waxing. Be careful not to pluck large areas, as it may lead to visible scarring, not to mention it’s not the most time-efficient method of removing body hair.
