Has your partner complained about your back hair? Does the rug on your chest stick out of your clothes? If the answer to either of these questions is “yes”, it’s time to take action.
A little bit of fuzz can be gruff and manly, but here’s how to get that hair to skin ratio under control:
1. Laser hair removal
If you’ve hardly any time to look in the mirror, but want to revamp your image – laser hair removal could be right for you. This non-surgical procedure is quick, simple and efficient and has been shown to permanently reduce hair re-growth.
It works by focusing a laser beam at the base of each hair follicle and can be used to treat most parts of the body – although a number of sessions are recommended for optimum results. Reputable clinics throughout the UK now offer laser hair removal techniques of this kind, so find out more today and enjoy a well-groomed appearance.
Not interested in laser? Then why not try waxing? Simply buy some hot or cold wax from a reputable beauty store and spread it over the hair you want to remove – making sure you follow the direction of the hair growth. Next, press a wax strip over the top and when you’re ready hold your skin taught and pull the strip off quickly – against the direction of the hair growth.
This will hurt as you’re pulling each hair out from the root, but it shouldn’t be unbearable. If this all sounds too messy, you can buy ready-made wax strips that can be used instantly, so give them a go and see what you think! Don’t forget to patch test each area, in case you have an allergic reaction to the product.
If you’ve just got a little bit of hair here and there, shaving could be your best option – so buy yourself an exfoliating sponge, a new razor and some high-quality shaving foam. When you’re taking a shower, scrub your skin to remove any dead skin cells before getting rid of the hair from your legs, armpits, chest, toes (or any other body part) in the same way as you would your face.
Be careful not to cut your skin and apply decent moisturiser when you’re finished. Shaving takes a little more effort than laser hair removal – but it can be done as and when you please.
Hair removal techniques have been around for centuries according to experts and threading is still popular today. It’s regularly used in Asia to remove unwanted hairs and is now available across the UK.
Highly-trained technicians use strands of thread to pull out individual follicles and the process is extremely accurate. It’s great for bushy eyebrows and out of control sideburns and is relatively pain free. Threading’s available at many beauty shops, but if you’d prefer a more discreet appointment, head to a salon!
Hair removal can be quite tedious, but there are plenty of options to choose from.
