There are a ton of ways to keep your body hair-free if that’s how you like to maintain yourself. Shaving and epilation are pretty common ways to do it at home. Simple tools and products can make going hair-free quick and painless. Discover which hair removal technique is best for you by knowing your pain tolerance and how frequently you want to be maintaining your body’s hair growth.
Hair removal dates back to 1900 B.C. Honey is speculated to be the first hair removal agent. Sugaring was the hair removal practice of choice in places like the Middle East, Turkey, Iran, and Persia.
While leg hair removal has gained popularity in recent times, it wasn’t common practice until the last hundred years or so. Sugaring is still considered one of the best methods for hair removal and is the safest, least painful, and most effective.
Epilation is essentially plucking out your body hair en masse and may cause discomfort and pain, but the benefits of epilation may make it all worth it for you, though.
A benefit of epilation is that you may get smoother skin, and it may last longer than most other hair removal methods. The effects of epilation may last up to 4 weeks compared to that of shaving that you may need to do as frequently as once a week. This is because it takes longer for hair to regrow when it’s pulled out from the roots. Epilation is also great at pulling out shorter hairs that cannot be removed through waxing.
Always exfoliate well before and after any hair removal practice. It prevents ingrown hairs and keeps your skin smooth and healthy between sessions.
Gentle exfoliators like salt scrubs, sugar scrubs, or even a gentle oatmeal scrub can slough away the dead skin that may cause problems with body hair growth.
