Body hair is something which we are all born with and it’s something which cannot be avoided. Most people might have a slight smattering of fine hair around their body, others might be hairier and there are few for whole body hair can be a bane when the growth is thick and dark and tends to mar their features.
Facial hair when dark and thick looks unsightly and unappealing and takes away the beauty of one’s face. Too much hair on the arms and legs also gives one a gorilla like appearance which is really embarrassing for some people.
Removing body hair is not a new technique and has been used for centuries, Cleopatra was known to bath in Ass’s milk to get rid of unwanted body hair and keep her skin looking dewy and soft. Since time, women have been removing excess body hair to look well groomed. But these days most men would also like to get rid of body hair.
Getting rid of body hair
The following tips will help you get rid of body hair.
Waxing is a great option. Not only for women but men as well. Beauticians comment that there has been a surge in the number of men who are getting waxing done. It’s not only the metro sexual men out there but regular guys as well.
The reason why most men decide to wax is that it makes them feel cleaner, saves them from the five o’clock shadow in the groin and neck area. Eventually the hair thin out and then guys too don’t need to come in too often to get their waxing done.
Waxing though might be a bit painful but is a safe and effective way of getting rid of hair anywhere on the body. However if you find waxing to be painful, all you have got to do is keep yourself relaxed and not tighten up.
Other then that ex-foliating your body before a wax will allow the hair to be pulled off more easily. Waxing keeps you hair free from anywhere of 3 to 4 weeks.
Sugaring is also a great option. Sugaring is ideal for those who have sensitive skin or their skins break out during waxing. There are a number of sugaring kits available in the market and the best part is that sugaring can be done in the privacy of your home and at your own leisure.
If the body hair you need to remove is restricted to the facial area only then threading is also a good option. But its not feasible to cover larger areas of the body.
