Beauty tips: Hair removal

Why not follow these 10 Simple tips to make the task of hair removal a little more bearable.

1: Exfoliate before you wax to avoid ingrown hairs. The action of exfoliating will remove dead skin cells with might otherwise obstruct the hair follicle and lead to nasty ingrown hairs.

2: Shaving rash. Shaving is a fast and cost effective way to remove hair however it can irritate the skin and cause an itchy unpleasant rash. If this should happen try soothing the area with a dab of witchhazel gel. This naturally cooling gel will reduce the redness of the spots and speed up healing.

3: Talc before waxing. When waxing at home try using some talcum power over the area to be waxed. This will help the strips to rip and be more effective.

4: Sugaring is often a better choice than waxing for beginners. This method is water soluble meaning it wipes off, leaving no sticky marks making it easier to use than wax.

5: Turmeric is a natural depilatory. Apply as a paste before a bath, leave to dry then simply rinse off for a smooth hair free look.

6: Shaving gel or foam. Always use a gel foam or oil when shaving to reduce the risk of shaving rash, however if you should run out then hair conditioner makes a wonderful substitute.

7: Plucking is a great way to remove stray hairs and keep eyebrows neat, however it can be a bit of a pain! reduce the pinch by rubbing the area with an ice cube before tweezing, you could also try using a little dab of teething gel to numb the area, just remember not to get any in or near your eyes.

8: Bleaching is a great way to reduce the appearance of fine hairs. For a natural solution simply rub a freshly cut lemon over the hair and leave for 5 to 10 minutes then rinse off. The natural bleaching agent in the lemon won't make the hair look bright white like some bought products can.

9: Reduce regrowth by using a product containing soya. Soya milk was found to reduces hair pigmentation and also the rate of growth.

10: Aloe Vera is and excellent treatment after any type of hair removal. The gel has a natural anti inflammatory effect therefore reducing the likelihood of redness and irritation, leaving you with smooth, healthy skin.
