Women for years rid of excess hair, wanting to achieve perfect beauty and perfect smooth skin. With each generation, and even year methods of hair removal are improved, and sometimes we are faced with a difficult task – which one fits best? So, what methods of hair removal exist?
The simplest and most common is ordinary shaving. This method is accessible and fast, it is quite possible to cope on your own and achieve a fairly good result, only correctly picking up the razor, and observing some safety precautions.
So, the blade should always be clean and new, in no case should have rust. Before use rinse the razor with hot water. Undesirable to use the soap, as it severely dry the skin. A special gel or foam with a neutral Ph level and moisturizing or soothing extracts make the skin soft and smooth. The obvious and most annoying disadvantage of using razors is the fragility results as the small bristles may occur even after only one day.
The alternative to shaving is increasingly becoming the use of a special depilatory creams that dissolve hair gently. After applying the cream for a few minutes, it is removed with the special spatula (and sometimes a so-called safety razor is something like a regular razor blade, but made of high quality plastic material) or sponge. The hair is completely removed from the skin surface and the skin is a little smoother than usual after shaving is due to the fact that the thread is not cut but dissolved. Cons of this method – potential Allergy and irritation (although manufacturers produce special versions for very sensitive skin), and the relative fragility, because the hairs start to grow after a couple of days.
In order to achieve more long-lasting result, it is possible to use the wax. The hot wax is applied on skin and hair, and then, after cooling, removed with a sharp movement, removing hairs from the root. The effect can last up to months – and with the proper application of waxing is very attractive. However, this method has disadvantages. For example, many girls complain of frequent ingrown hair, but this problem can easily be avoided by regularly and thoroughly exfoliating and hydrating the skin. Pain is also quite significant disadvantage, therefore, often psychologically easier to trust the professionals at the salon.
Electric epilator also provides a long-lasting effect, but the problems that occur when using this method, approximately the same as that of the wax: ingrown hairs, pain. Cope with it with right care. There is enough epilators on the market, each girl can choose by herself price and required functions: cleansing nozzles, cooling, massage nozzle.
If you want to get rid of hair permanently, cant do without the pro. Known methods – laser and photoepilation hair removal – remove hair in a few visits and stages (6 to 8) and for all. If you do not have serious hormonal problems, they are unlikely to rise again. The laser acts mainly on dark hair (as they have a lot of melanin) and is ineffective against brown and bright. Photoepilation has a thermal effect that destroys the hair follicle. By the way, the photo-epilation can be performed at home if you can get a home machine. However, this should be done after consultation with a specialist and multiple treatments are performed by a professional.
