A method used by almost everyone at
least once. Shaving with a razor is the easiest and most convenient way to remove hair. But hair grows back quickly since only the tips are cut and at times dark spots remain visible. Instead, use a shaver with a feature that prevents the cutting blade from falling directly on the skin to protect the surface layers of the skin from damage.
Apply wax, peel and remove hair. Waxing can cover a wide area in a short amount of time, but naturally there is pain when pulling an extensive amount at once.
Removal may also not be complete when the hair is too short. The skin may be damaged as layers may be peeled off along with the hair.
An epilator is an electric device and use a roller head with small tweezers attached that rotate electrically for the speedy removal of unwanted hair.
It is easy to use – simply glide it over your skin. Because the hair is pulled from the roots it takes longer to grow back, allowing for less frequent treatment compared with shaving.
An advantage of this speedy and simple hair removal method is that it can be used while taking a bath. It is suitable for all skin types and hair tones, which is also appealing.
