How To Remove Hair From Legs
Now, there are two ways to go about leg hair removal. First is epilation where hair is removed right from the follicle to the root. It includes methods like waxing and tweezing. The second one is depilation where hair is removed from the skin’s surface. It includes methods like shaving and hair removal creams. Let’s find out about these methods in detail :
The upside of this painful process is that it literally uproots the hair. As a result, the growth takes more time to show on the skin. Consequently, you can flaunt those silky-smooth legs for 20 days or so before repeating the process all over again. The best part? You can easily wax your legs at home using disposable cold-wax strips. All you need to do is place the strip on a hairy patch, press, and pull against the direction of the hair growth. But be careful if you’ve sensitive skin. This is because waxing can sometimes pull out the skin–especially if you have thick, coarse growth.
Hair Removal Cream
Depilatory creams are a painless way to remove hair from the legs. You can simply apply a layer of a good-quality product, let it sit for 10 minutes, and then remove it with a spatula before washing it off with water. Once done, moisturise your legs with a nourishing cream to get that feather-soft finish.
Make way for the most mess-free, pain-free leg hair removal method—shaving. All you need is a sharp-edged razor and a shaving cream to seal the deal. Apply the cream, hold the skin taut, and glide the razor in the direction of the hair growth. Go patch by patch and apply a moisturiser once done. Pro tip: Take a hot shower before shaving your legs to loosen the pores and get a closer shave. This will also minimise the chances of a razor burn or irritation and give you a silky, smooth finish.
