Epilation: bid that unwanted hair adieu!

Want to get rid of pesky unwanted hair? Learn the right steps to follow as well as techniques to use at home for smooth, hair-free skin.

1

Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliating allows you to eliminate dead cells and stop ingrown hairs. This goes for both your body and your face. For your legs, opt for an exfoliator with bigger granules, but for more delicate areas, like your underarms and bikini line, go for a really mild scrub, such as one you would use on your face.

2

Hop in the tub or shower

Warm water opens your skin’s pores and softens body hair, making it easier and less painful to remove. However, you’ll need to thoroughly dry your skin before removing any hair.

3

Choose the right technique for you

Hot or cold wax pulls the hairs out at the roots, so they grow back thinner, fewer in number and less quickly, say after 4 to 5 weeks. This technique is ideal for hair removal on your legs. If you use it for facial down, upper lip, eyebrows, armpits or your bikini line, make sure you choose products created specifically for these delicate areas to reduce the risk of inflammation. Whichever method you use, remember: it can be a little painful, so prepare yourself!

Choose the right technique for you

Waxing your legs: the proper technique

  • Before you start, make sure the hair is long enough to stick well to the wax: generally between 2 and 5 mm, depending on the area you’re waxing.
  • Moving in the direction of the hair growth, spread a thin layer of wax over a small area. Once the wax strip is firmly in place (and solidified, if it was hot), pull it off quickly in one swift movement, against the direction of hair growth.
  • Repeat the operation as needed, until you’ve covered the entire area.

Depilatory cream is the preferred method for women with sensitive skin as it’s completely painless. Though they do get rid of body hair, these creams don’t remove hair at its root. That means that hair grows back faster and thicker, usually after five to six days.
