Your Guide To Hair Removal
Get rid of the fuzz without any of the fuss.
Most women have an unwanted hair problem they want to fix. Whether it’s stubborn leg stubble, a little too much peach fuzz on their upper lip or a bikini area that needs some TLC. But when it comes to getting rid of stubborn hairs, which is the best method out there? Should you get busy with a razor? Grab the tweezers and start plucking? Or perhaps brave something a little longer lasting like waxing or laser treatment? It can be hard to choose which hair removal option to go for, and you may need to switch up methods depending on your hair type and the area of removal. We take a closer look at the most common methods of hair removal to help you decide how to wave goodbye to your unwanted hair.
Wet shaving is one of the most common methods of hair removal for women and can offer a quick fix to a hairy situation. The trick to a smooth shave is exfoliation, warm skin, good-quality shaving gel and a good-quality razor. Hacking at your legs with an old blunt razor is only going to lead to tears and blood.
Legs and underarms ONLY. Never use a razor on your face or the sensitive skin around your bikini area.
It’s quick, cheap and can be done anywhere.
It can cause sensitive skin to flare up and the results only lasts a few days.
Choose shaving if you need to quickly remove hair from your underarms and legs and always pick the highest quality razor you can afford.
Every woman has a trusty pair of tweezers in her makeup bag. And while plucking is great for removing the occasional stray hair, you probably don’t want to spend hours plucking each individual hair from your legs or bikini line.
Eyebrows and occasional stray hairs around the body, including ingrown hairs.
It provides precision hair removal quickly and cleanly.
Plucking doesn’t work well over large areas and can be painful in sensitive spots.
Choose plucking for perfectly groomed eyebrows and occasional problem areas.
Epilators work by gently pulling hair from the root using a series of rotating tweezers. Epilation provides long-lasting hair removal with results lasting for up to four weeks. It also causes hair to grow back slower and finer, meaning that future hair removal is easier. A high-quality epilator is the key to good results and we recommend the Panasonic ES-ED53 4 in 1 Epilator for fast, professional results on wet or dry skin. You should always exfoliate and soak skin in warm water before epilation for best results.
Legs, arms, underarms and the bikini area. Epilation is NOT suitable for hair removal on the face.
Hair removal is fast and easy. Epilation can also reduce hair growth in the future.
Epilation can’t be used to remove facial hair and the sensation can be uncomfortable at first for some women.
Choose epilation if you want professional style hair removal results at home.
Waxing is an effective way to achieve smooth, hair-free results for up to 4 weeks. It can be carried out using hot or cold wax which is applied to the desired area and removed with fabric strips. Waxing can be carried out in a salon or at home on most areas of the body but can be painful or uncomfortable for some women.
Legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, upper lip, and eyebrows.
Waxing offers long periods of smooth, hair-free skin.
For best results waxing should be carried out by a professional and this can make it an expensive option. It also means women have to regrow hair to a fairly long length before the treatment can be repeated.
Choose waxing if you want a professional treatment that will leave you smooth for up to a month.
IPL stands for intense pulsed light and this hair removal method works by damaging the hair follicle with an intense beam of light that reduces or prevents regrowth. Previously a salon only method of hair removal, home treatments are now available but it’s important to choose a high-quality system. We recommend the Panasonic ES-WH90 IPL Hair Removal System for professional results on the face and body.
Legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, and upper lip.
IPL is a painless way to remove and reduce hair growth permanently.
IPL works best on women with fair skin and dark hair and can be less effective on other skin and hair types. It also requires shaving before treatment.
Choose IPL for next generation hair removal and long-lasting results.
Hair removal creams can seem like a magical option for hair removal. Simply smooth on the cream and pain-free hair removal happens in a matter of minutes. And for some women, they can be a great option. But beware, results can be patchy, short-lived and creams may occasionally cause irritation.
Small areas including the upper lip and bikini line.
Hair removal creams offer fast, pain-free hair removal at home.
Hair removal creams can have an unpleasant smell, results last only a few days, and creams aren’t practical for larger areas. They can also cause skin irritation and inflammation.
Choose hair removal cream to get rid of a small problem area, fast.
No one hair removal method is right for everyone and you may need to use a combination of methods to get the results you want. Whatever method you choose, make sure you invest in high-quality products and prep skin carefully before hair removal.
