Removing Leg Hair

Depilatories
are applied directly on the hair in the form of a gel, foam, lotion, or cream.
They have a high amount of alkaline that dissolves the hair so that you can wipe it off. To
get the best results, use a nubby cloth to wipe off the depilatory and use short strokes
with a little pressure. The hair will grow back in a few days, so this is not a permanent
hair removal solution. The alkaline can be caustic and can irritate your skin, so always
do a patch test to determine if you have any allergy or if your skin is too sensitive for a
depilatory. Depilatories also tend to have a sharp odor.

Shaving is the most common form of hair removal because it is quick and convenient.
Contrary to what many believe, shaving does not change the texture, color, or rate of hair
growth.
1) First thing in the morning is not the best time to shave. Your skin will be puffy, making
it difficult to get to the bottom of the hair shaft you seek to remove.
2) Donít ever shave dry hair. Take your shower or bath before you shave, giving the hair
time to become engorged with water and thus an easier target to shave.
3) For a close shave, scrub your skin with an abrasive sponge to remove dead skin
around the hair shaft.
4) Try using hair conditioner instead of shaving cream; itíll leave your skin very soft.
5) Change the razor blade after every third shave to reduce friction. You donít want to
irritate your skin more than necessary.
6) Shave from bottom to top: ankles, shins, then your thighs. Move the razor in the same
direction as the hair growth.
8) Use as little pressure as possible on your razor. Use a razor with a hefty handle
instead of pressing hard.
9) Always apply a moisturizer after shaving to prevent flaky skin.

Waxing is easiest and most convenient way to remove hair from large areas. Waxing
leaves your skin smoother than shaving does because it eliminates stubble by pulling
the hair out from below the top layer of skin. You can wax at home, and beauty supply
stores sell all the equipment you will need..
