The best methods for hair removal aren’t necessarily achieved with soap and a razor or through expensive salon appointments, according to “Marie Claire” and “Women’s Health” magazines. Whether you hope to gently remove or lighten unwanted facial hair or go bare down there, chances are you can find a high-quality product so you can beautify the area in the privacy of your own home.
For Underarm Shaving
The underarms are especially sensitive to shaving and to depilatories and other forms of at-home hair removal, so getting the best razor possible is especially important, according to “Marie Claire” magazine. The publication recommends that women planning to remove underarm hair try Noxzema SpaShave 4-Blade Shave. Not only is this one of the most affordable non-salon solutions on the market, but the razor also includes shea moisture strips, which are ideal for trying to effectively remove coarse underarm hair without unwanted nicks or irritation.
Before Removing that Facial Hair
Before removing facial hair with tweezers or visiting a salon, try Aveeno Positively Smooth Facial Moisturizer. “Women’s Health” notes that this over-the-counter facial moisturizer, which costs about $14 in retail stores as of 2010, markedly lightens facial hair and may in effect all but eliminate its appearance. Also, it doubles as a protective sunscreen; the manufacturer offers SPF 15 and SPF 30 blends.
If You Must Tweeze
Not only can tweezing lead to unsightly redness and even bumps, you can contract an infection through ingrown hairs when tweezing, the Mayo Clinic notes. Those ladies who still opt to tweeze should try Laura Mercier tweezers, recommended by “Women’s Health.” These tweezers, which cost about $22 and are usually ordered online, target individual hairs with their large grip, reducing your risk of tweezing-related dramas.
Trimming That Bikini Line
You shouldn’t use just any razor when trimming that bikini line, especially if you don’t want ingrown hairs, the Mayo Clinic notes. “Women’s Health” recommends that ladies wanting to be more bare down there, try Noxzema Bikini Razor; drugstores usually sell this shaving implement with its 5/8-inch blade for about $3 as of 2010. The razor provides that close shave that is so important to at-home bikini hair removal success.
When Waxing At Home
Waxing at home can be risky and can lead to ingrown hairs, but you can reduce your risks by following directions properly, the Mayo Clinic says. If you just can’t bear going to the salon for that personal waxing touch, consider trying the Bliss Poetic Waxing Kit recommended by “Women’s Health.” This wax set, which as of 2010 usually costs about $40 for 7.6 ounces, stands out from others because it includes plenty of soothing treatments that you can use before and after waxing those especially sensitive areas of your body. Some competitors usually only include one or the other soothing treatments, but rarely both.
