One of the most effective ways to remove hair on the legs for a long time, perhaps, can be called epilation with an epilator. Many epilators can only be used on dry skin. If you’re getting one, be sure to towel dry your skin thoroughly and even powder it with baby powder before you start.
However, there are models on the market today that allow you to epilate your legs in the shower or bath, such as the Philips Series 8000 epilator. Wet epilation feels less painful, while additional accessories like the skin-stretcher and exfoliation brush make epilating your legs even more comfortable.
The advantage is that it removes hair at the root, leaving your legs smoother for longer than you would with a razor.
Epilator Series 8000 Wet & Dry Epilator
the skin is not smooth after waxing:(
I use for hair removal a mechanical epilator Philips. For some reason, some of the hair is not removed with the root, and as it breaks off. That’s why my legs are not smooth anyway. I have to shave them 🙁 maybe I’m doing something wrong? Somehow my feet have to be specially prepared, steamed? By the way, tried waxing in the salon, the same thing: (Please share your “technology”)!
I’m like Bigfoot myself:)))) Hairiness increased:( I always take a shower, rub my legs with a stiff body brush. ♪ to make all the hairs come out ♪. Then I epilate. The result seems fine. I don’t shave in the winter, it’s warmer that way.saving on tights:)))) JOKING!
I have smooth skin only after shaving
I also do like 2. I epilate, then I do it again in a couple of days. And, of course, peeling so the hair doesn’t grow back and the skin is smooth. Still not silky, man.
3, so after shaving it’s smooth, but the next day it’s rough.
What are the Do’s and Dont’s of Post-Wax Care? | Starpil Wax
When I used an epilator, I always “shaved”. If you want the effect right away, date there. If not. I just go over every few days with the epilator, undermining the remaining hairs. Hair doesn’t grow like a carrot, it just does. Something grows, something falls out, something else grows.
5, you’d think after the cream the next day is not rough, also everything grows
Thank you, girls. That’s basically what I did. I thought maybe there’s another secret 🙂
And I’m not talking about the cream at all. It’s the same thing as a razor, only it’s more work.
I’d like to share with you my way.
Take a depilation cream (no matter what), and apply it to the place where you will be epilating. You do it for half the time or even less. You wash off the cream and then you remove the hair with the epilator. The cream will not remove your hair, but it will be much softer and the epilation process will be completely painless.
Not really, but it is my know-how how to make removal of hair by an epilator painless even in the bikini area!
Strong redness of skin after epilation
A couple of days after waxing bikini zone under the skin formed a bump.
Toothpick, I’ll try. And the hairs with the root removed? Thank you!
Yes, the root. The most important thing is not to hold the cream for long, maybe a third of the time allowed. Then they won’t dissolve, they’ll just loosen.
13, don’t they get kind of. soft, that again they just break off? It’s the hairs that weaken, not the roots
14, try it, I get it right off the root, only much easier and painless.
After the epilator I tode never smooth to the touch, such an effect only after shaving, and waxing is very painful to remove ((((
If it’s urgent to get smooth. you have to wax them in the salon. But not with the machine, but where the wax in the hands knead. Then there are very few ragged hairs and smooth everywhere.
As a long-term measure laser hair removal is good. After the procedure is not the best, but a few sessions, you can get rid of the toughest hairs.
If there is no time at all. then the cream at home. Very smooth, but very short 🙂
Fighting Dragonfly, I went to 5 sessions of laser hair removal. Alas, it’s no use. And for waxing, you have to “grow” the hair to a few mm.
Epilator takes a few times. I thought I was the only one with such a stupid problem that is not super smooth and not for long.)) But, as it turns out, this is our common female misfortune)) Girls, and I’ve tried it at home with wax strips, Cliven, it seems. Very convenient, and just everything at once smooth and not as painful as an epilator, and the time takes the same! And if the cream to put, then I also think they just break off, and the roots will remain quietly in place. But I’ll give it a try anyway, thanks, Toothpick! 🙂
How many electroepilation procedures do you need to do to achieve the desired result??
Electroepilation requires a series of treatments over a period of time. The length of time depends on many factors and is individual. The density and coarseness of the hair, as well as the area to be considered, are very important. The hair will never grow back from the destroyed follicle, but about 2/3 of the original number will grow back in about three weeks from the follicle next to it. After repeating the electroepilation procedure, about 1/3 of the hair ╚coverage╩ will be left. Thus, in 2 sessions you can correct the shape of the eyebrows, in 3√4 ≈ it is quite realistic to get rid of hair above the upper lip, and in 4√6 sessions to destroy hair on the shins and thighs. How often and regularly you perform the procedures, how quickly you will achieve full success. The end result ≈smooth, hairless skin ≈is usually worth the time spent.
Oil Infusion.In modern cosmetology, oil tincture of datura is probably the only effective remedy, whose unusually strong suppressive effect on the hair follicles has been confirmed practically. The concentration of health properties of datura in the oil tincture is so high that it can completely stop the growth of hair.

Yep, and the destruction of health after a tincture of datura, also forever :(((
The epilator needs several times. I thought I was the only one with such a stupid problem that is not super smooth and not for long.)) But, as it turns out, this is our common female misfortune)) Girls, and I also tried it at home with wax strips, Cliven, it seems. Very handy, and just everything is smooth and not as painful as an epilator, and the time it takes the same! And if the cream to put on, it seems to me, too, they just rip, and the roots will stay quietly in place. But I’ll try it anyway, thanks, Toothpick! 🙂
I also thought that the smoothness after the epilator does not have only me))) Today I waxed my legs with lidocaine. I was too scared to use it, but I`ve tried it anyway. I can’t say that the result is the one I’ve talked about so many times, but it’s a lot less. Minus icedocaine: you need to stab, after that are like bruises. The irritation was very strong and very hot feet. It’s better to wax, of course! Take 10 tbsp.л. Forget the razor, wax, waxing properly and waxing can leave a burn on your legs. I can’t say that the result is the one I’ve been told about so many times, but it’s much less, just a little less. can leave a burn.
Girls, you just everything at once. I didn’t have smoothness after the first one either. But after a month, thanks to regular waxing (I found pleasure in hunting for single hairs almost every day), my legs are smooth. And you don’t have to grow or shave anything, you just wait until it grows a little bit where it’s not smooth and then you epilate again. It takes a little time, but the effect is 100%. Forget the razor and wax, an epilator with proper care. It’s the best thing.
Went for the first time to wax my legs-(3-4 mm exactly from Sunday to Saturday rose-that is, 6 days waited), after the procedure my legs were covered in a red blotchy like hives (it was an irritation that passed the next morning), I note that before I used a razor, but zero result, hair was already growing by the end of the day. But I did not like the wax, for today is the third day, and the bristles are, and somewhere missed the hairs, in short, not really covers the hair, so I want to do shugaring in a week. But the other two areas, deep bikini and pits, I did shugaring, just awesome, the first time it was painful, but I laughed along with the beautician, only sometimes just cried out “ouch” and that’s it)))). But I had an enlarged follicle due to frequent shaving, the beautician never faced this. But she convinced that after will be thinner and easier to pull out (and also want to note that after shugaring all smooth to this day, day-3 day, only feet after a wax for some reason not such). In general, not in vain write that it is better to do for the first time shugaring legs, and I here have listened beautician (persuaded the type and I’ll get tired and she will shugaringom fully waxed legs, the next time I will insist on his). Well, that’s how it is. If someone I was able to explain my situation or someone had the same, then you can advise something and me. (From razors irritation, shaving gels for a long time does not work-the stubble still appears at the end of the day, creams, some irritation on the skin and without effect, different used epilator-only pain and without effect, wax strips from the Wit and liquid wax-too complete crap, even without talcum powder and with talcum powder-none of the hairs is covered, and in one side pulled and in another)-described their methods in detail, so as not to advise that I have already experienced a million times on myself and without result. One conclusion: the peculiarity of the cutting element.(((
Women’s intuition. the most powerful weapon on the planet
The plumbers like to inspect other people’s apartments
Epilator can achieve smoothness: led them first against the growth of hair (until podyugaete all visible), then side to side (a couple of times in one place to go), then “grind” in a circular motion, all the while checking the hand “smoothly-not smoothly”. Long, painful, but smooth as aftershave.I want to try shugaring. But I’ve read that after shugaring also not all the hairs pulled out, those less than 1 mm. remain. In this respect, the epilator is better, and he manages to capture these.Wax strips. It’s no use, no smoothness and it’s a lot of work.Although for each area must have its own approach, but for the mustache strips suited me better than an epilator.For legs epilator is not bad at all. For bikini. Not all there is captured, but the hairs after the first procedure grow much thinner and repeatedly pulled out almost painless. But the first procedure is terribly painful and a lot of blood. On the hands and armpits hair grows faster than after shaving (I do not know why, probably the stimulation type of massage). And on the hands are even thicker. In the armpits less often.creams. not so good. In the bikini area, almost nothing is removed, even if you keep it on for 2-3 times. My hair’s like a wire. It’s not bad for my underarms as a pre-shave treatment.After shaving often smoothness does not happen, too, I do not know what it is, and changed the razor (new, sharp, different models tried). And right after I shave, I feel a little bit of bristle.
prickly legs after waxing
Hi all! Like many people I just hate shaving, these horrible stumps and prickly legs makes me deeply depressed. Sugaring also do not like, not my procedure, the pain is just awful, so not only that, and then irritation lasts for a week, and then when everything seems to be going away begin to climb hair again.

Top 5 Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Ingrown Hair And Red Bumps | Home Remedies
(about female depilation) I’m going to have a night of love=) I decided to prepare for the day, waxing, legs and “all the same =))” I went and bought green Vit wax strips. I was so happy when I got them on sale and bought three packs.I think, Oh, it’s going to last a long time. So I sat down in the bathroom, got ready, got my shit together. and everything according to the instructions: warm it in my hands, tear one off the other and stick it in the right place. Started at the bikini area, fuck. I glued it to. I waited for. I waited some more. And then I pulled. ♪ I wondered why it didn’t hurt ♪??I look at the strip is transparent (remember wax green). I look at my pee-pee and there’s a.and all the wax was still there. Oh, man, what do I do?!!panic! ♪ He can’t wipe it off with a napkin, it’s like glue hardened ♪. What to do??Soap, water, toothbrush went to work. Doesn’t help, it’s sticky! I suffered until the evening, shaved with a razor, took disposable, 7 pcs changed, the wax was blocked. I ended up with a sticky green pussy. I did not refuse sex, I decided dark, will not notice, and that not to stick to me, we’ll be in the DOGY position. In a fit of passion, I ended up sitting face to face. and he started screaming, tears started flowing. I look at my pubis, and there’s a mossy mound of his hair. P.S. What us girls, alone to suffer. =)))
(about male depilation) Review of the male depilation gel. After being told that the look of my balls reminds me of an old rastaman, I decided to make a decisive move and buy this depilation gel because my previous attempts to shave were not very successful, in addition, I almost killed my back trying to reach and reach particularly hard to reach places. I’m a bit of a romantic, so I decided to do this for my wife’s birthday. like another gift. I pre-ordered the gel. Since I work in the North Sea, I thought I was a tough guy and thought the previous reviews of the gel were written by some pathetic office rats. Oh, my fellow sufferers, how wrong I was. I waited until my other half went to bed, and with a hint of a special surprise, I went to the bathroom. At first, everything was going fine. I applied the gel to the right places and began to wait. And very quickly I waited. At first I felt a warmth, which in a few seconds was replaced by an intense burning sensation and a feeling that I can only compare to the sensation of being sharply pulled up by barbed wire panties, while trying to throw you to the ceiling. I hadn’t been too religious until that evening, but at that moment I could have believed in any god as long as he would spare me the horrible burning around my shitter and the complete destruction of my sausage and two balls. Trying not to bite my lower lip, I tried to wash the gel out of the sink, but I only managed to shove a piece of hair into the hole. Through a veil of tears I made my way out of the toilet and into the kitchen. I couldn’t walk in the kitchen anymore, so I crawled the last few meters to the refrigerator. Rolling the bottom chamber out of the refrigerator, I found a tub of ice cream, ripped the lid off it, and shoved it under me. The relief was fantastic, but short-lived, because the ice cream quickly melted and the infernal burning returned. The tub was pretty small, so I couldn’t help my asshole. I started rummaging through the drawer, hoping to find something. There were so many tears in my eyes that I couldn’t see much. I grabbed the bag, which I found out later contained frozen bean sprouts, and ripped it open, trying to do it as quietly as possible. I grabbed a few sprouts and tried unsuccessfully to squeeze them between my buttocks. It didn’t help. The gel seemed to have penetrated my rectum, and now it was like a jet engine. I hope I never dream of having a gay snowman in the kitchen again. Do you realize how low I was willing to stoop to ease the pain? The only solution my pain-crazed brain came up with. to gently shove one bean sprout where no plant had ever sprouted before. Unfortunately, hearing strange moans from the kitchen, my wife decided to get up and find out what was wrong. She was greeted with a terrific sight: me lying on the floor, my asshole sprawled out with strawberry ice cream dripping down my throat, and shoving beans into me with the words “Oh, that feels so good.”. It certainly shocked her, and she screamed in horror. I didn’t hear her come in, so I freaked out myself, my guts cramped, and I farted, with the sprout flying out at considerable speed in her direction. Yes, I understand that a bean sprout farting in her direction at twelve o’clock at night. Not quite the surprise she was hoping for, and the next day the kids had a long time to explain what happened to the ice cream. in general, thanks to gel, you can lose not only your body hair but also your dignity and self-respect.
BeautyIt’s not all that smooth: The downsides of waxing and how to deal with them
There are many different ways to treat waxing, but it’s obviously one of the most popular ways to remove hair. The beauty standard itself, where a woman only has hair on her head (and then in strictly designated areas), is of course evil. But let’s not forget that epilation can be chosen according to your own desire, not only at the insistence of a partner, a glossy magazine or a gynecologist (it happens too). At the same time, waxing has its limitations and is often disappointing for those who believe in the advertising myth of perpetually smooth legs. We tell you what to be prepared for when removing hair, how to make the procedure as comfortable as possible and keep unpleasant side effects to a minimum.
This problem belongs to the category of medical, and it has a name. pseudofolliculitis. New hairs growing in place of those removed, or “stumps” cut off with a razor, cannot penetrate the horny layer of the skin and begin to grow under it, which leads to inflammatory processes. Ingrowth can be caused by any type of hair removal, so it’s best to accustom yourself to the accompanying care regardless of the method you choose. this applies to both women and men. It can also happen that you simply have a predisposition to pseudofolliculitis: this can be clarified by a dermatologist, who will give individual recommendations on skin care.
Dry skin can be the cause of ingrowth, so you should always make sure you’re getting enough moisture. Regularly exfoliating areas that are frequently waxed can also solve the problem, or at least reduce the extent of the disaster. Sometimes it is recommended to change the usual way of hair removal for a while to any other, more gentle way, or even temporarily stop removing hair. If the skin is sensitive, the intervals between procedures can be extended. the skin has time to recover. If you prefer shaving, make sure to shave in line, not against it, as this cuts less into the skin.
There are also special cosmetics designed to prevent ingrowth, but they must be chosen individually. As a rule, they have very complex compositions that may well contain allergenic substances. If you decide to try one, be sure to carefully analyze the list of active ingredients.
Another common problem associated with the wrong procedure or oversensitivity of the skin. As a rule, contact methods of hair removal cause concomitant damage to the skin and nerve endings, hence the unpleasant redness and rashes. To prevent them much easier, than to eliminate. If your skin responds to irritation more often than usual, try to perform as few traumatic procedures as possible and arm yourself with soothing products.
Avoid mechanical peels before or right after epilation. If you do the procedure at home, it is better to do it after a shower or a warm bath. clean skin with open pores tolerates these effects better. After waxing or shugaring should not immediately take a bath, because contact with tap water can have bad effects on the injured skin. If irritation has already appeared, add a few drops of tea tree oil to your moisturizer, which works well as an antiseptic, but be sure to choose a quality oil that contains a minimum percentage of cineole: it itself can irritate the skin and mucosa. Use any other soothing or antiseptic that works for you, but make sure it contains no alcohol.
Folliculitis and irritation in men
About the precautions for men is worth mentioning separately. Men’s skin is on average thicker and rougher than women’s, and men rarely take the time to deeply cleanse and exfoliate. If daily shaving for many is still common, then those who dare to wax or sugar waxing, such as back or chest, have unexpectedly hard: including the peculiarities of sweating men’s skin often overtake inhuman scale irritation (simply every injured bulb turns into a pimple).
Do not go for mechanical action such as wax and sugar, and turn to non-contact methods. After epilation it is really important to keep the skin clean, because its whole surface becomes open and very susceptible to dirt and penetration. And in the shower we should use a soft washcloth of natural materials. it will do a good job with the necessary exfoliation.
Rather silly to point out that the presence of bruising basically means that you do something wrong, but nevertheless it is not an uncommon problem with waxing or sugar waxing. There are known contraindications to the procedure. it is skin diseases, allergies to the components of the composition used, diabetes. Vessels close to the skin also add to the risk. The most common cause of bruising is carelessness of the craftsman, and changing him can solve the problem very effectively.
During the waxing or sugar epilation the skin should be well fixed, and the master must see to it that the composition was applied evenly, and be able to properly and quickly remove it from the skin. If your skin is really extremely sensitive, warn about it. Do not epilate after chemical peeling, as well as unwanted to conduct the procedure on a sunburned skin. If everything was done technically correctly, but bruises still sometimes appear, it can mean fragility of blood vessels, vitamin deficiency and other problems which you should fight comprehensively, postponing epilation until better times.
After a properly performed procedure burns do not appear often, but sometimes it happens. it is possible after home depilation with the cream, and after waxing in the salon. If this happens the first time, it is reasonable not to risk twice and just in case to abandon the chosen method. it probably does not suit you. But it also happens that the wax burned in a proven place and permanent master (especially deep bikini and other delicate areas). Do not hesitate to ask to check the temperature of the wax on a less sensitive spot and always tell the master immediately if you feel hot. Well, needless to say, that during home epilation you should carefully read the instructions and never violate it.
If the burn appeared after the cream, it means that you simply overexposed it. Such products contain alkaline substances which dissolve keratin and thus help to remove hair, but they are not enough to cause serious damage to the skin. Of course, you should not use the cream on the skin areas close to the mucous membranes. Laser hair removal is based on heat, so it’s best for those with dark hair and fair skin. Tanned or dark-skinned skin contains a lot of melanin, respectively, the heat it will attract no less actively than the hair, so the risk of burns increases several times. Burns after hair removal should be treated with drugstore ointments like any other, and remember that after laser and photoepilation at any time of the year you need sunscreen.
Also occurs due to improper execution of the procedure and is of two kinds. Hypopigmentation, when the skin shows light spots, which remains after burns and abrasions and is easily removed by pharmaceuticals. Hyperpigmentation is a darkening of the areas of skin where the procedure was performed, and it can occur after any type of hair removal except old-school shaving. The fact is that during epilation the upper layers of the epidermis are somehow removed, which leads to increased sensitivity of the skin to ultraviolet radiation. If you are taking medications with the same side effect, be doubly cautious.
If it happens that pigmentation is a part of your constant program of suffering, then you should pay attention to the sugar hair removal. the composition almost does not damage the skin, unlike wax. It is better to stay away from the solarium after hair removal, and if you go out in the sun to use products with SPF. Hyperpigmentation can be removed with a course of bleaching products, and with hypopigmentation help “Panthenol” or “Bepanten”, which quickly enough deal with the problem in combination with gentle exfoliation.
Hair regrowth between treatments
It is an inconvenience that accompanies any kind of hair removal. The intervals may vary and depend on your personal peculiarities: some hairs grow slower and the skin remains smooth within two weeks (chances are better, if you epilate from the ground up), others have new hairs in a few days already. In any case hairs grow unevenly, and at epilation with wax, sugar, as well as laser, electro- and photoepilation it is necessary that they were not shorter than three millimeters. In addition, no procedure should be repeated too often. It is optimal to apply to hair removal once every three weeks, otherwise the chance of irritation increases.
If this nuance bothers you a lot, get a home epilator, mechanical or photo (no patience for tweezers). The intervals between treatments you can adjust yourself, and after some time you will get a long-lasting effect (although this again depends on the characteristics of your body). You do not have to wait for the next visit to the beautician, and in the treatment of many devices are very simple, and the use of pay off faster than salon procedures. Remember that the combination of dark hair and fair skin is ideal for heat treatments.
The complete guide to waxing: what you can and can’t do
Not all women are lucky enough to take care of absence of hair only on legs, underarms and bikini zone. For some. especially those with Eastern roots. the struggle with unwanted hair in the most unexpected places becomes almost a matter of life.
But as it turns out, there’s no hair removal method that’s universal for all areas of the body. Thus, modern laser technology may be a savior for some areas, while for others it will prove unsafe or ineffective, and the cheapest tweezers will do a much better job.
Trimming, or thread plucking. Performed with even tension, it gives your eyebrows a polished, neat look. But if you’re inexperienced, you might have trouble setting the tension properly, which might cause a hair to tear rather than remove it at the root. In addition, it can leave small marks on the skin. Ask the craftsman to draw the shape of your eyebrows in advance to make sure it meets your expectations.
Tweezing.For older women whose skin has already begun to sag, it’s best to use tweezers, as the thread can trap skin and leave a bruised area. If you pluck your eyebrows yourself, you can use special pads like a stencil to avoid mistakes.
Dedicated laser. Most hair removal lasers are not precise enough to work on eyebrows. However, some can be used for localized areas such as eyebrows, nostrils and even ears. In addition, most lasers are only used on light skin with dark hair. This is because they attack the melanin. the pigment. in both the skin and the hairs, so as to destroy the follicle. Therefore, they can damage darker skin. Newer lasers used for eyebrows, on the other hand, are safe even for the darkest skin.
Waxing. Growing small black hairs will appear in a week after the procedure. In addition, there is a high chance of ingrown hairs.
Trimming, or flossing. If you suffer from unwanted facial hair, this procedure can work wonders. your cheeks will be as clean and bright as a freshly washed doll. On top of that, the hair grows thinner after treading than after other depilation methods.
See a doctor. If it’s too complicated. coarse black hair grows on your cheeks, chin, nipples and stomach. it could be a sign of polycystic ovarian syndrome, gynecologists warn. As an additional treatment your doctor can prescribe a special cream called Vaniqa, which slows down hair growth by blocking an enzyme. ornithine decarboxylase. in the hair follicles.

Waxing. Removing frizzy, thin hair with waxing can increase blood flow to the area and provoke the growth of stronger, thicker hair.
Whitening. The sight of a dark-haired woman with blond facial hair can attract even more attention.
A special laser (see lasers for details) is ideal for those who want to shave their legs and legs in the bathtub. the brow care instructions above).
grass trimmer. Modern battery-operated gadgets can even be used in the shower. The rapidly rotating blade may cause discomfort, but nasal hairs grow quite slowly, so one treatment a month will probably be enough.
Tweezing. It is very painful.
Laser. If you’ve been mocking your upper lip for years with plucking and depilation, it’s possible that it will grow stiff and prickly hair, which is especially noticeable in backlit mirrors. Home lasers can be helpful.- they’re not cheap, but they’re much more effective. You touch the “gun” to your skin, and it beeps as it acts on each hair follicle. If you have very dark skin, however, it may not work for you. After a few months, the hair stops growing almost completely.
Trimming, or flossing, works pretty well if you’re willing to do it every couple of weeks. Make sure the procedure isn’t too painful-it’s an indication of hair breakage, which means you’re not removing the hairs at the root.
Electrolysis. If you have blond, red or light hair, or if you have gray hair, then laser won’t help you, whereas electrolysis will. An electric current is applied to a fine needle electrode or metal probe to each hair follicle and destroys the root. Hair growth involves several stages, and on the face, this cycle takes four weeks. The procedure must be performed during the active growth stage. To remove hair on the upper lip, you’ll need about four treatments four weeks apart. Keep in mind that there is a risk of scars, so it is better to find an experienced specialist.
Waxing and bleaching (for the same reasons as on the cheeks).
Home laser. Some women after 40 face sudden hair growth in the most unexpected places, and the chin is one of them. Doctors note that for the period before menopause, such changes are normal. This is caused by an increase in testosterone, which causes hair to grow in places that are more masculine, such as the chin and upper lip. A laser is best for removing these hairs. for example, a portable version that can be used at home. It targets every follicle, and after a few months, the hairs will stop growing. But be prepared for the procedure to be painful. However, it only lasts a moment, and it’s worth it.
Triding or electrolysis (cf. upper lip).
Tweezing. It can make the hairs prickly and moustache-like, as plucking promotes blood flow to the area and, as a result, stronger hair growth.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is an electromagnetic radiation source. High-intensity pulsed light (not laser) flips a hair from growing to dormant, which slows hair growth. It feels like being slapped with a rubber band. The procedure is done in the salon, once every 2-4 weeks for about four months, then it will be enough to maintain the result once every six months. As with laser procedures in the salon, it is important to find a qualified specialist here. In the wrong hands, these tools can cause burns, scars and discoloration of the skin.
Shaving, Triding, and Waxing. After shaving, hair will become thicker and more prickly. Triding on large areas will be too painful, on the body it is used only in India. Waxing will cause ingrown hairs because the hairs here are too thin and can stay under the skin while growing.
Tweezing. It can be uncomfortable, but the hairs are usually singular, and plucking them once every couple of months is sufficient, since the body hair growth cycle is 8-12 weeks on the body, whereas on the face it is four weeks.
Laser and electrolysis. The skin around the nipples is very sensitive, so the procedure will be extremely painful. Also, the safety of applying electric current or a beam of infrared light to the chest has not yet been fully investigated.
Shave and Laser. Shaving is the easiest, fastest and most budget-friendly way to get smooth underarms. Even if you resort to a more radical method in the hope of a permanent result, you will still have to shave in between.
Waxing. First, it is painful, and secondly, there is a high chance that the hairs will ingrown.
The electric epilator. It’s a portable, electrically powered device. At one end of it are thousands of tiny tweezers that spin at high speed, removing a hair one by one. And, yes. it hurts. For the hands, this procedure is good because it’s done quickly and easily, and you end up with smooth skin without any dark shadows or dots (there may be some slight redness that will go away within 12 hours). However, here we need to remember that the skin should be exfoliated with special scrubs, otherwise the fine hairs can ingrow after the procedure.
Shaving. Hair can quickly grow back stubbly, leaving you with dark spots.
Shugaring. Often not effective enough and can leave you with sticky, hairy hands.
Hot Wax. Many specialized salons are ready to offer you all kinds of waxing in the intimate area. from strips or hearts to the full Brazilian bikini. This is done with hot wax, which removes the whole hair, including the root. You can go over the same area several times, if necessary, for the smoothest result. Hot wax strips, on the other hand, are not recommended, as they can irritate the skin. To avoid ingrown hairs, the skin in the bikini zone should be exfoliated, it is also desirable to wear seamless underwear.
IPL, alexandrite, or solid-state lasers work well in the bikini area only if you have fair skin and dark hair. And it hurts, too. Although its more modern counterpart, the Soprano diode laser, is less painful because it uses a heated massage instead of hundreds of single beams like older lasers. It can also be used on darker, Asian or even black skin. On average, you’ll need about eight sessions with six weeks in between.

The secrets of perfect epilation. Smooth legs and no cheating!
On the eve of the long-awaited summer, when we all dream of the sea, the sun, the beach, or even just a short skirt, the problem of hair on the legs is becoming especially urgent. And we, girls, are facing a question: how to fight with small prickly enemies?? Brunettes have a particularly hard time. But, as Baron Munchausen said: “There are no hopeless situations. In the 21st century there are more than enough ways to solve this problem. They fall into two categories: the help of specialists and self-resistance. I hurry to tell you more about each of them.
EXPRESS RELEASE OF SPECIALISTS Beauty salons offer several ways to get rid of unwanted hair. These are laser hair removal, electroepilation and photoepilation. All these methods help get rid of unwanted “hairiness” forever, but they are expensive and take time. One procedure is not enough.
Laser hair removal A laser beam acts on the hair growth area without damaging other skin cells. With this method you can remove hairs on the upper lip. However, please note that the lighter the hair, the more contraindications for laser hair removal, because the procedure is performed “by eye” and thus the hairs must be clearly visible. Four to six treatments at an interval of one and a half to two months are required. For a complete removal of unwanted hairs it is necessary to go through several procedures, because the laser irreversibly destroys only the bud hairs. And mature hair grows back and needs to be depilated again. This method has its disadvantages: you should refrain from sunbathing for at least one month. And besides laser hair removal simply costs a lot.
Photoepilation A procedure in which the death of hair follicles occurs due to the impact of light and heat of high power. Absorption of light energy by the hair causes the hair follicle to be destroyed. The method, of course, is painless, safe and the most effective that exists. But unlike laser depilation, it will take a long time. You will need 10 sessions every 2-3 months. Disadvantages: possible redness for up to several days, slight swelling, as well as high cost.
Electroepilation The hair follicle is destroyed by an electric current applied to the hair at the end of the needle. The electric shock kills the hair follicle. Cons: the procedure is quite lengthy, since each hair is treated separately. And besides, it’s painful. You’ll feel a slight, but prolonged tingling sensation. Repeat electroepilation is recommended 15-20 times a year.
HELP YOURSELF There are a few more easy and less expensive ways to fight the hair you don’t want. Things you can do for yourself. Razor Shaving your legs is trivial. The easiest way to do that is to But you’ll be able to boast of smooth legs for a day, at the most. two. In addition, after the razor hair grows even more active, from a single hair follicle can grow just two “prickles. You can, of course, shave at least every day, but it can irritate the skin and lead to “ingrown” hairs. In general, this method of epilation, of course, the most simple and affordable, but the effect of it. so-so.
The most ancient method of getting rid of unwanted hair is bioepilation. This method is said to have been invented by Nefertiti, the Egyptian queen. She would apply a special resin to the body and then tear it off along with the hair. Nowadays this process is almost unchanged. There are hard waxes based on resin and lemon juice and soft waxes with the addition of softening components (such as honey or sugar). Waxing can be done both in a cosmetic salon and at home, but in the salon the end result is usually better (smoother skin, less missing hair, etc.). д.). Hard wax is applied to the skin in a hot state and removed after hardening in the form of a film with hair stuck to it. Soft wax is applied warm and removed with strips of cloth. Cold wax is available in strips coated with a special resin-based compound. Before use, the strips are lightly heated by hand. The strip is placed on the skin and then pulled away with a swift movement along with the clinging hair. To reduce painful sensations in the wax injected azulene and bisabolol of chamomile pharmacy. The method is fast enough. Bioepilation with wax lasts about a month, and new hairs grow thinner and weaker. Cosmetic experts say that if you do this procedure constantly, the hair follicles are depleted and the amount of vegetation decreases markedly. The first procedure “skinning” is better to do in the salon: look closely, consult with a beautician to then repeat at home. Wax can be purchased at cosmetic stores or drugstores.
New-fangled depilation creams have the same effect as a razor. And the process itself is similar to shaving: only instead of shaving cream on the surface of the skin is applied cream, left for 3-7 minutes, then removed with a special stick, it looks like a razor. Before applying the cream, read the instructions carefully and try to apply the product to a small area of the skin: such creams can cause allergic reactions. Home epilator Home epilator. The device which by means of a roller grabs hairs and pulls them out with the root. Every year companies-manufacturers invent new nozzles, rollers, cooling pads. But I will say from my own experience: the procedure is still painful. Although you can get used to it. After epilation legs remain smooth for 3-4 weeks, and the new hairs become thinner and less frequent.
“BROWN” TIPS: 1) Before any hair removal it is recommended to “warm up” legs and use a body scrub. 2)After epilation skin irritated, so you should apply a soothing body lotion. 3) to save the effect of epilation will help lotion with extracts of chamomile. The lotion not only inhibits hair growth but also has a soothing effect, soothing your skin after waxing. 4) It is not recommended to sunbathe or visit tanning salon after epilation.
I hope that each of you, dear readers, learned something new and can now choose the method of the struggle with small “troubles” which really suits her. Sincerely wish you good luck!
Sugar depilation at home. is it possible??
You can also depilate with sugar paste at home. Most often a manual method is used for this. It is simple for self application.
The sequence of steps when performing shugaring at home:
- Treatment of the depilated area with disinfectants and anesthetics. After them, the skin should dry.
- Application of talcum powder on the groin area, intended for waxing.
- Heating the paste in a water bath to a temperature of about 37C.
- The prepared paste is applied on small areas of the skin against the hair growth.
- After 10-20 seconds, sharply but gently tear off the cured paste in small sections in the direction of hair growth.
When finished, the residual sugar can easily be washed away with water. Since the deep bikini area is quite difficult to access, there is a risk of doing depilation at home poorly.
How to do it yourself?
If you have neither the time nor the desire to visit a beauty salon for a leg waxing procedure, you can do it yourself at home. To do this, read the following recommendations:
- How much wax you need? If you’ve decided to epilate regularly, calculate how much wax and extra supplies you’ll need. As a rule, one jar of waxing wax contains 250 ml of product. That’s enough for two complete foot treatments. Also stock up on a wooden spatula to apply the product to the skin, preferably with a temperature indicator. You’ll also need cloth strips. You can use about 16 of these waxes at a time. To heat the wax, buy a thermostat or use a microwave or water bath.
- Preparing. Decide what product you want to use (hot, warm or cold), buy the necessary products for the procedure, take a warm bath with essential oils and deeply scrub the skin in the place you want to wax.
- How to apply? Depending on the temperature of the final product, there are different ways to apply it. Here are step-by-step instructions for each type of wax.
If you choose the hot method, heat the wax in the prepared device until it reaches 60 degrees. Using a wooden spatula, gently spread the product over the surface of the skin. Place a strip of cloth, wait a while for adhesion, and yank sharply. After removing the rest of the wax, apply a soothing cream.
Warm wax is prepared and applied in the same way, but its temperature should not exceed 45 degrees.
The cold method of leg waxing differs from the previous two in that it does not require a special device to warm up the wax. just warm it up with the heat of the palms of your hands for 30 seconds. After which the strip is applied to the skin and pulled sharply away from it. At the end of the procedure, soothe irritated skin by rinsing the depilation sites with cool water and applying moisturizing cream.

How to treat afterwards?
In the sale there are excellent tools that are used to slow the growth of hair after the hair removal procedure. They also help to fight ingrown hairs. Apply such creams should be applied for at least a week.
And here’s what is not recommended to do: to visit a tanning salon and the beach (up to 10 days), use products with artificial fragrances and dense consistency. they can clog pores and contribute to an inflammatory process. It is not necessary to go to the bath and sauna. One week after the treatment, get a peeling. It is especially recommended for girls facing the problem of ingrown hairs.
What can go wrong?
Basically, the reasons why the short hairs remain and disturb literally a few days after quite expensive procedure, two.
The reason for the “stumps.”
Stumps in shugaring is a very common thing in the beginning of “acquaintance” with this procedure. The fact that the hair does not sprout evenly. When using a razor, this is unnoticeable, as the “vegetation” cuts through by the morning and is shaved off in the amount in which it appears. During the sugar depilation removes only quite grown back hairs. The rest, small and not “ripe” enough to pull out, remain. Can’t see them, but you can feel them when you touch them.
This effect can also occur not immediately after pulling, but several days later, when the body realizes that it is left without protection and begins to actively stimulate the growth of dormant bulbs, overgrowing, in its opinion, unhealthily bald areas. Such undergrown hair looks like black dots on the skin and literally a couple of days turn into confident “stumps”.
Is it worth giving up shugaring because of this? No, such effect will pass in about six months of regular procedures. The hairs begin to appear at the same time and grow ideally for epilation with sugar paste. Below we discuss other preventive measures to avoid such a problem.
The reason for the prickness “crooked inexperienced hands”
During the sugar depilation is another, quite common problem. the hairs instead of complete removal begin to fray. There may be several weighty factors beyond anyone’s control here:
- The hereditary structure of the hair, predisposed to fraying;
- Pathologically thin and dry skin;
- lack of vitamins in the body, due to which will not only remain “stumps”, but also loss of hair on the head, broken nails and deteriorating skin.
All of these reasons are real, but they are isolated. In most cases, the problem is much more serious and weightier. the crooked hands of the master. To find a good specialist who will correctly and technologically remove unnecessary “vegetation” is difficult, and to even feel comfortable with him. a fantasy at all.
Why the handyman is to blame? Very simple. the hairs are severely frayed if:
- The specialist did not give recommendations for preparing and cleansing the skin of keratinized particles, which hinder the exit of the bulb, making the procedure more painful, and the appearance of tangible residues more likely.
- The technology of skin preparation by the master himself is not observed, an ineffective degreasing lotion is used, gloves are not changed, and so on.
- The master does not know how to work with the sugar mixture, incorrectly, or rather, a lot or little talcum powder is applied, the technique of work with gloves is “lame”, and the hair of normal length is removed from the third or fourth time.
- The specialist tears out the sugar paste with “vegetation” not along the hair growth, which leads not only to hair breakage, but also to subsequent ingrowth.
All this leads to the fact that the stumps remain after the tenth, and after the twentieth procedure shugaring, and the recipe here is only one. to change the master and look for a true professional in his business.
