Looking for options to be free of hairy legs, underarms, and a stubby bikini area. I like to try it all, how else will I know which option is best. That’s the advice I give to you. Find and stick with what’s best for you. So, what is a girl to use when it comes to hair removal?
While shaving is relatively pain free even the best razors sometimes leaves our legs and delicate areas rough, red, irritated, burning, or worse- infected! When you shave, you merely cut off the tip of the hair which is why it can easily resurface within a few days, grow back thicker and possibly causing your skin to become darker. Shaving may be cost friendly but every woman can never be too careful because even the best razors are not made to shave those delicate tricky areas.
Hair waxing is a clean and sanitary procedure not to mention body, bikini and Brazilian waxes are usually made from natural ingredients. Do find a Spa that avoids harmful chemicals which is normally found in shaving creams and topical hair removal creams. Full Body waxing, in contrast to shaving, removes the hair entirely with its root, leaving behind a smooth, younger-looking skin. The plus side is with multiple waxes the follicle weakens, so that overtime you can expect to see your hair less coarse, less dense, and less frequent!
Bonus Tip: To help make your first (or any subsequent) hair waxing treatment less painful, take Tylenol or Advil one hour before the service.
Laser hair removal can cost more up front, but over the long run, it can actually save you money, time and there’s less pain. Who wouldn’t want baby-smooth, hairless skin that you don’t have to shave or wax; wake up knowing you can throw on your shorts or tank top without worrying about scary, hairy, scraggly stubble hair. Unfortunately, Latin, African-American, Asian and other ethnic groups with dark skin tones are often discouraged from choosing laser hair removal because of the procedure’s reputation for damaging darker skin. Darker skin naturally absorbs more light than other skin types, which can increase the chance of side effects such as burns and pigmentation. It is important to choose a laser specialist with years of experience in treating darker skin types.
You’re probably thinking-What is Sugaring?! Sugaring hair removal is an ancient middle-eastern practice that uses all natural paste or gel made from food-derived ingredients like sugar, water, and lemon juice to remove the hair follicle from the root. It is almost like waxing but with warm sugar. This natural hair removal method can last up to six weeks!
