An Expert Guide to At-Home Hair Removal

 Everyone knows winter is the best time to be lazy when it comes to your hair removal routine. With spring right around the corner, many people are getting ready to shed their layers for bathing suits, shorts, and dresses.

 Now that the season is changing, it's time to think about what hair removal method works best for you.

Sure, razors are inexpensive and quick, but pesky stubble can really irritate a weekend vacation. Perhaps this year you'd like to try waxing or creams. There's a comfortable option out there for everyone.

No matter what you choose, don't let the changing temperatures rush you into spending hundreds of dollars at the salon keeping up with your hygiene! This year, put that money towards summer vacation and find ways to turn your home bathroom into your spa with our expert guide.

Shaving

The most common method of hair removal is by shaving by razor. The blade cuts hair down to the surface of the skin. Razors are commonly used to shave facial, leg, and underarm hair.

Razors are popular because they come in a variety of shapes, materials, and sizes. Whether your razor is disposable or electric, single or triple bladed, or used wet or dry, there is a comfortable option for everyone.

Although shaving is the cheapest and quickest solution, it can lead to accidental cuts and skin irritation. To avoid the uncomfortable aftermath, make sure you're always shaving with a clean, sharp blade. Dull razors will lead to razor burn and ingrown hairs. In addition to keeping your razor fresh and clean, using after shaves and skin creams will protect irritated follicles.

Waxing

Waxing is the process of hair removal from the root by using a sticky adhesive. It sticks to the body hair and pull from the follicle. Although it is known to hurt more, unlike shaving, most waxed hair won't grow back for four to six weeks. Waxing is a great hair removal option for smaller, targeted areas of the body like eyebrows, lips, and bikini lines.

Try at-home waxing with wax strips or waxing kits available at your local pharmacy or beauty supply store. Be sure to read all the directions as to not burn yourself the first time using.

At-Home Laser Hair Removal

Although waxing and depilatory creams provide longer results than shaving, they still are only temporary. For some people, constant hair-removal is such a hassle that a more permanent solution may be ideal.

In 2020, at home laser hair removal is an option. Although it's more expensive than previous methods, laser hair removal treatments are more affordable when done at home. Professional, in-office treatments are stronger at penetrating the hair follicles, but there are satisfactory in-home products available in laser hair removal. They are perfect for treating small areas or supplementing visits with your dermatologist.

Depilatory Creams

If your pain threshold is too low for waxing, but you don't like the pesky return of shaving stubble, a depilatory cream might be right for you.

This hair-removal method works by dissolving hair at or just below the skin's surface. This makes it very easy to wash off, so it's perfect to try from the comfort of your own home. When trying a depilatory cream for the first time, be sure to test it on a small patch of skin first to avoid an irritated reaction.

The success of a depilatory cream depends on the thickness and amount of hair.

Which Solution is Best For You? 

In 2020, it's easier than ever to find a product that's perfect for you. If you have questions, concerns or trouble about finding the right product for you, consult your dermatologist prior to starting treatment.
