The first step to satisfactory body hair removal is to understand that body hair is completely natural, and each person has their own preference of either completely removing, trimming or not taking any measure for removing body hair at all. However, for many of us, there is nothing more annoying and irritating than out-of-control hair on the body. For people who have excess hair growth on their face and body, the term “hirsutism” is also used, which includes the areas of the chin, the upper lip, chest and back. Hirsutism often runs in the family, but external factors like PCOS, disorders of the pituitary, thyroid or adrenal glands, ovarian tumors or severe resistance to insulin can also cause it.
Whatever the reason for thick body hair, it is important to have smooth experience with a leg hair remover. So, take a look at the different ways to deal with thick body hair.
One of the most common and convenient methods of hair removal is shaving. When you allow your hair to grow, it makes surface removal easier and much more effective. Shaving might not be as effective as waxing but it is relatively pain-free. Always remember to moisturize or use an aftershave after shaving. The only problem with shaving is that it can lead to razor burns, knicks and cuts. In addition, the hair grows back within a few days, needing you the repeat the process very often.
Waxing is another conventional way for hair removal, using a sticky substance as a medium, such as wax. This is used to cover the hair and then a strip is placed on it and pulled back. This helps pull the hair out from the follicle. Waxing can be done using two ways first being strip wax, also referred to as soft wax, usually done by applying a thin layer of wax and using a strip to pull out the hair. The other option is to use hard wax, also called stripless waxing. In this way, a thick layer of wax was put and when it hardens, you can pull it off. Not all wax used are hot either, cold wax can also be used and can be bought pre-applied on strips, which makes it really easy to remove hair at home.
If you are looking for a smooth leg hair remover, depilatory creams are possibly the best. Simply cover the surface with the cream. Wait for the recommended time and then scrape off with the tool provided in the box. Remember to wash the skin off well afterwards and moisturize. This method is great for shorter hair, which might not get pulled out with waxing.
If you feel none of these hair removal methods suit you, you can always go for something like bleaching or lightening of body hair too. But as far as removing body hair goes, it is really your decision and what makes you comfortable with you. So, test it out and see what’s best for you.
