24 Mar 2019: #HealthBytes: Hair removal methods- Find out what works for you
There are wildly varied opinions and options around hair-care regimen for women.
Whether you just need more comfort, or want to slip in that new dress, hair-removal becomes must, once in a while, for every woman.
However, not all hair-removal methods are suited for everybody.
Here, depending on your need, find out what works best for you.
#1: Hair-removal cream
Using hair-removal creams (also called depilatory-creams) is simple, painless, and cost-effective.
It is particularly beneficial for larger areas and also trickier, hard-to-reach regions.
After applying, simply wash off or step in the shower.
Through full-removal of hair, the method gives you smooth skin quickly, but the results are short-lived. Expect re-growth in 2-3 days.
Also, make sure to check the label for any allergies.
Although, it's not the most trouble-free method, but once you get accustomed, it'll feel easy-peasy.
Since the method involves use of mechanical tweezers to cut out hair from the roots, it might cause some pain. Hence, it is advisable to use this mode for less sensitive areas, like legs.
However, the method is quite long lasting. It'll help you forget the fuzz for nearly four weeks.
Shaving is simple, quick, cheap, and effective. It's almost the perfect hair-removal way, save for the sharp blades.
Shaving razors are good for all skin areas. However, they might render the skin dry. So, consider following your shaving ritual with a natural moisturizer.
Probably the worst part about shaving is that it's quite short-term. Re-growth will start in not more than 1-3 days.
One of the most popular hair-removal methods, there's no denying that waxing could be painful, but in the long run, once you get accustomed, it works just fine.
Waxing works universally, ie. throughout skin regions.
However, it is important to stay hydrated and be careful during the process.
Another amazing perk is that waxing is for long-term. You'll see no hair for 4-6 weeks.
