Everybody wants to look and feel fantastic and to enjoy the confidence that brings. However, excessive body hair is a common problem effecting both men and women and varies from person to person. It can be unsightly, causing embarrassment and loss of confidence but removing it can be just as bad. Hair removal is often seen as a major inconvenience and a chore to say the least. There are numerous ways of removing unwanted hair, however the relief is often short lived and just trying to decide on which method to use can be a headache in itself.
Shaving is probably the most commonly used method and does allow you to achieve something approaching smooth feeling skin. However, the re-growth is fast usually returning a day or two after shaving and shaving sensitive areas is also a problem for many people which can cause irritation, rashes and cuts. This is where the creams, foams and moisturisers come in and the cheap and cheerful way of removing hairs walks out the door.
Hair removal creams can be used on most areas of the face and body. The creams usually work within 10 minutes by dissolving the hair. Applying cream to large areas of the body can be tricky and messy and can cause irritation and even allergic reactions. The re-growth is also fairly quick and the hair can be back within a week, as like shaving, it removes hair from the surface of the skin and doesn’t tackle the ‘root’ of the problem.
Waxing the unwanted hair gives a longer lasting result as the hair is basically pulled out whole. It is common not to notice any re-growth for around four weeks. Not long considering the pain waxing causes and the risk of ingrown hairs which can be irritating and cause infection.
