Melted wax burning directly on your skin to be pulled off, causing more pain? Waxing is a great option for hair removal, but if you want to try all of your other options, that’s great! There are several natural, electric ones; less painful or completely painless options and here is your guide –

Shaving

Classic razors. There are several myths about shaving that are not entirely true. No, your hair does not grow back thicker or rougher after shaving, but may become limp when it starts to regrow. Hair shaving may not always be the case, but can result in ingrown hairs. Shaving does not darken your skin or damage your skin. Choose a product designed to remove painlessly and safely.

Epilators

Compromised halfway between shaving and waxing, epilators are electric machines used to remove hair by grabbing multiple layers of hair, much like waxing. In this method, the hair is pulled out from the roots like waxing, but may be painless for some people. There are several options like spring loaded epilators that can be painful, but an electric device is a better choice.

Depilatories

Depilatory products, commonly sold in the form of depilatory creams, can also be in the form of gels, lotions, aerosols or roll-ons. These are easier and faster hair removal methods. These are creams with dissolving effects that contain alkaline chemicals that react with your hair. Hair removal products are mostly safe and have longer lasting effects. One should be very careful when selecting a product as chemicals can be harmful to certain skin types and a patch test is a must.

Sugar

Sugar is a natural method of hair removal from the roots that is done by replacing hot wax with a warm sweet solution that is considered less painful and safer on the skin. Sweet solutions are easy to make at home and can come in handy when you don’t have time for a run in a living room.

Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by destroying the hair follicle upon exposure to pulses of laser light. It is an expensive option for hair removal and can be as painful as waxing in some areas. It is often misunderstood that laser treatment is permanent, but it is just as temporary as the other methods.

Electrolysis method

The only permanent hair removal method approved by the FDA, it is best to consult a qualified electrologist for this procedure. A professional will insert a thin wire into the hair follicle below the skin’s surface. An electric current travels down the wire to the bottom of the follicle, destroying the hair root. Damage to the follicles prevents hair from growing and causes existing hair to fall out.

There are several methods for removing hair, but there are very few reasons for doing so. If you are concerned about “hygiene” and “hairy appearance”, the days are gone when hairless skin was advertised and it is completely hygienic and necessary to have body hair. Choose your options wisely and take care of your body with love.
