There are lots of ways to remove body hair including waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, and sugar. Which one is your favorite?
It’s finally starting to get warm outside which means we’re shedding all of the extra layers and choosing clothes with higher hemlines. In winter, you might take a laissez-faire approach to hair removal (read: never), but when the nice weather comes, you might bring out your razors and wax along with your sandals and shorts. What’s your favorite way to de-fuzz? Do you use one method over your entire body, or do you use a different method for each body part? Or do you decide to go all-natural and maybe add a touch of color to your armpit hair with a bit of dye?
I am not committed to one hair removal method. I normally try different depilatory creams and waxes. If I’m feeling lazy or I don’t have enough time, then I’ll usually just end up shaving instead. I have sensitive skin on my face but haven’t found depilatory creams or waxing to irritate my body. I prefer to use wax strips such as Veet Ready To Use Hair Removal Wax Strips, $9.49 because they’re less fiddly than using pots of wax that you have to keep heating up. Plus, you don’t have to worry about ensuring you put on the right amount of wax in an even layer. The regrowth is slower, and I feel like a proper beautician when I’m done.
