Epilation (depilation) has always been relevant among women. Already many centuries ago, the fair sex got rid of the vegetation on the body with the help of sugar, fire (yes, in some peoples, the hair on the body was simply singed), wooden tweezers, threads with cleverly tied knots and other devices. Today, women have more advanced hair removal methods at their disposal.
Wax: You can remove body hair with wax. It's easy to do at home. Purchase a special mixture for depilation in the store, carefully read the instructions and proceed. When choosing a wax, be guided by your hair type. Some products are designed to remove thick, coarse hair, while others are designed to remove fine hair (such as the one over the upper lip on most women). The disadvantages of this method are the possible appearance of ingrown hairs some time after epilation.
Electric epilator: There are special devices for removing unwanted hair on the legs and body. They are called electric epilators. With the help of a plurality of tweezers located on the head of the device, the hair is removed from the root and regrowth only after a few weeks. The disadvantages of this method are the painfulness of the procedure.
Depilatory cream: There are also home hair removal products on the market called depilatory creams. They are made up of special chemicals that destroy the hair structure. After applying the cream to the scalp, after a few minutes, the hair dissolved by the product simply disappears. The disadvantages of this method are the fragility of the result and the specific smell of the ingredients of the product.
