Many people have unwanted hair. It’s common on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, back, legs, fingers, feet, and toes.
Since Cleopatra shaved her legs with the edge of a shell, women have searched for a better and more lasting way to remove unwanted hair.
The process of the removal of unwanted hair is an ongoing one. While there are various options to get rid of unwanted hair, here’s some pros and cons which will help you choose the right option for you.
Pros: Hair is removed at the root so the results last longer and the hair grows back softer. And many women swear that the more you wax, the fewer hairs grow in.
Cons: The downside to waxing is you have to let hair grow out to wax again. It’s painful and you run the risk of the hot wax burning your face.
Sugaring, like waxing, pulls the hair from the root. The huge benefit is it’s less painful than waxing. You can buy sugaring kits to use at home or pay a pro to do it.
Pros: Quick and painless.
Cons: The creams have a strong, chemical smell, which may turn off some people. The creams don’t always work on thick, coarse hair and if you have sensitive skin, avoid this method or run the risk of chemical burns. I recommend doing a spot check on your leg or arm first to make sure your skin won’t react. Because hair is removed at the surface, it will grow back faster than with methods that pull it from the root.
An aesthetician uses a doubled-up strand of cotton thread to twist around individual hairs. She then pulls the hair out from the roots. The procedure is used mainly on the eyebrows and upper lip and the huge benefit is the hair is removed from your face by the root so it grows back much slower than it does by shaving.
If you only have a few hairs to remove, tweezing is a great option. Be sure to invest in decent slant-edged tweezers.
Pros: Hair removal is permanent.
Cons: It’s pricey. It’s also somewhat painful (you get zapped). And you have to go many times for permanent results.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal is an option for women with light skin and dark facial hair. The lasers don’t work as well on light hair.
Shaving is not a good option for the face. It’s a myth that your shaved facial hair will grow back thicker but it will feel as if it grew in thicker. Why? Virgin, never shaved hairs have fine, soft ends. Shaved ends are coarser. This is why the hair that grows back after you wax seems to be “softer.” Save your razor for your legs and your bikini line.
PREFER THE NATURAL APPROACH?
Turmeric And Milk: Turmeric powder has often been used for manufacturing beauty products. It cleanses your skin, beautifies it and ensures you are glowing all the time.
