Talking about hair removal, while summer is slowly giving way to fall, can seem anachronistic. But, not that much. Indeed, if for some, the summer is more favorable for hair removal, for others, the stalking lasts all year long.
I found on the online women’s magazine Cosmopolitan , a file on hair removal which goes around the question with a bonus a selection of products and materials, divided into 4 themes:
1. What mode of hair removal for upper lips and eyebrows?
2. Perfect hair removal for dream legs.
3. What mode of hair removal for my bikini line and my armpits.
4. A nice beauty test to perform.
And to conclude, here are 10 golden rules for successful hair removal.
Rule no 1:
The day before or the day before the day before waxing, make a scrub . This will remove dead cells and bring out the probable hairs lodged under the skin, which will limit the risk of ingrown hairs.
Rule no 2:
No hair removal on irritated skin (pimples, wounds). It would not only be painful but it could make things worse.
Rule no 3:
The tweezers , which will be disinfected (with 70% alcohol) after each use, will be very useful for removing stubborn hair and touching up after depilation.
Rule no 4:
For delay hair regrowth , specific treatments have been developed. Presented in the form of milk, spray, serum or gel, these post-hair removal products are also supposed to reduce the amount of hair and make them finer. As far as I am concerned, I bought a care of this type from the Guinot brand , but I saw no difference.
Rule no 5:
To avoid the formation of ingrown hairs after hair removal, make a scrub once a week and, continue to moisturize your skin daily. It will make you feel good because it will be as smooth as it is soft.
Rule no 6:
Blogger Julien gives good advice in case of proven ingrown hairs: do not grind! Exfoliate the area with a salicylic acid solution (in pharmacies) and remove the hair with tweezers. If it is red and it makes you suffer, apply a drop of essential oil of Lavender Aspic and a drop of essential oil of Clary Sage on the button 3 times a day until disappears .
Rule no 7:
After depilation, to calm redness and relieve possible irritations, moisturize the depilated area with dedicated care. The Shea Butter is indicated as well as Sweet Almond Oil which has a soothing effect. I find that these natural products work much better than soothing post-hair removal care. Another natural tip, still found on lessentieldejulien.com, is to moisten the skin and apply a natural Alum Stone on the depilated areas to limit bleeding and redness .
Rule no 8:
N e immediately expose yourself to the sun after waxing (whatever the area). Wait 24 hours.
Rule no 9:
Do not use any alcoholic product after hair removal. This concerns especially the depilation of the armpits because, some deodorants can contain alcohol.
Rule no 10:
The evolution of techniques now allows black and mixed skin to have recourse to permanent hair removal thanks to the Yag laser practiced by a laser doctor and, with pulsed light which is done in an institute. In the second case, find out about the seriousness of the establishment because, if the beautician has not been trained, it will burn your skin!
