Always check the razor cleanliness. Change razor gradually. The low hygienic level of shaving equipment will make your skin infected.
Unwanted hair? No problem. Shaving body hair might be a regular duty. Every men has grown hair in some body part, such as armpit, legs, chin, and other parts. The appearance of hair in your body, especially at the body part that is visible to other people, of course affect to your confident. That is why some people, choose to shave then let them grow more on the skin.
Think hair removal, and most people think of waxing. Think waxing, and most people envision pain. Now I’ve had my legs waxed and I can confirm that it isn’t pleasant, but it certainly isn’t unbearable – no pain, no gain and all that.
Widely regarded as one of the most effective methods because it removes hair from the root, waxing involves applying a strip and a sticky substance to the skin and removing swiftly – normally in the opposite direction of hair growth. The results for waxing are pretty impressive, and the post-wax results will normally last longer than any other method. However, in terms of at home hair removal, it isn’t the most practical solution – particularly on your back – so you’ll either have to visit a salon or get some at home assistance.
Most guys shave regularly, or will have done so at some point in their lives, so shaving should be nothing new. In terms of body hair removal it’s probably the simplest method, and allows you to cover any area of your body in one go with just a razor and a shave product. Arm yourself with a new razor (like those below), rinse regularly, shave in the direction of hair growth and you can’t really go wrong. I’d also advise using a shaving product with maximum glide and minimal foam. This will allow your razor to glide over the contours of your body, while giving you maximum visibility to reduce the chance of any unsightly cuts or nicks.
Before shaving any body hair it’s also important to shower with warm water so that you open pours and raise the hair follicles. If any of your body hair is particularly long, ensure you give the chosen area a quick trim with a pair of scissors or clippers first to prevent razor clogging.
Hair Removal Cream
The less painful cousin of waxing, hair removal creams (or Depilatories) are a pain free way of removing excess body hair. They work by applying your chosen removal cream across the selected area, and then leaving for (normally) 5-10 mins while the products ‘dissolves’ the hair protein structure, before removing. Whether or not hair removal creams will work for you depends on your hair and skin type, along with the area of the body and the amount of hair you have.
If you can’t stand the thought of waxing, and shaving leaves you with cuts, nicks and razor burn, then hair removal creams are a great alternative. However, these kind of products can be a little harsh on sensitive skin, and probably won’t give the best results on thick, dark hair.
Electrical trimmers are all about subtle maintenance and are perfect for hair removal beginners. Obviously it’s not going to give you a silky smooth finish, but it’s a great in-between option that allows to take baby steps and avoid a drastic transformation.
One of the best features of these kind of gadgets is that they allow you to control the length of your body hair, not simply going from ‘bear’ chest to ‘bare’ chest. This is also the best method if you’ve got sensitive skin, or don’t want to take a razor to any tricky areas.
