How to do hair removal without pain? My advice


Painless hair removal is not a myth and can be a reality if gestures are well applied and tips taken into account. Here are my tips for hair removal without pain.

Talking about hair removal and adding to it without pain may seem strange to many people, especially men. Because many people will say that painless hair removal is simply impossible, and that, regardless of the method used to do it. And above all, whatever part of the body is depilated, even if some areas are less sensitive than others. And yet, painless hair removal is quite possible from the moment certain gestures are carried out correctly.

Here are my tips for hair removal without pain.

Tips for hair removal without pain


To do hair removal without pain, different solutions are available to you.

Skip the razor for painless hair removal


The razor is the most used solution for hair removal, especially for men's hair removal . But be careful, it may indeed be that the razor is not painful when shaving, but it can quickly become complicated afterwards. Because the razor can cause severe itching, especially the arrival of red patches the next day or a few days after the shaving session. Red patches that make you want to scratch. This is the sign that announces the regrowth of hair under the skin, and this can generate ingrown hairs. Not only is this not very aesthetic, but it can also be painful.

Depilatory cream for painless hair removal


The most effective method for painless hair removal is of course hair removal cream . Dear gentlemen, be aware that brands have launched depilatory cream for men but you can just as well use a classic depilatory cream.

Depilatory cream is the preferred solution if you want painless hair removal because it has many advantages:

  • just apply it to the area where you want to do your hair removal. The advantage is that if you are alone, the depilatory cream can be applied very easily to certain hard-to-reach areas. I am thinking in particular of the back if you decide to do back hair removal .

  • you must then let it sit for a few minutes. Be careful to do a test on a part of the skin before applying it to the entire area to be depilated, because you can have an allergy. From a painless hair removal, you would go to a very painful hair removal!

  • remove the depilatory cream as soon as you have reached the time indicated by the mark. Do not leave any longer because the risk of skin burns would be significant. Again, the goal in using hair removal cream is to have painless hair removal, not hair removal that will burn your skin.

I advise you to test several depilatory creams to see which one will give you the most satisfaction.

Wax for painless hair removal


I can already see the eyebrows of some readers raised when reading this subtitle! That's why I put it last, so as not to scare people away. It is true that wax is not the first solution that comes to mind for painless hair removal. Besides, men tend to run away when it comes to waxing .

Know one thing: the more you wax, the finer your hair will grow back and therefore the less pain you will have! So of course, you will have pain at first with waxing, but the more you practice it, the more painless hair removal you will have.

Of course, if you use wax strips, remember to remove the wax strip in the right direction. Also, do not hesitate to put talc on the bristles before applying the wax.

Tips for painless hair removal

To do hair removal without pain, in addition to the method used to do it, it is important to know some tips.

A shower for painless hair removal

Before tackling painless hair removal, it is necessary to prepare your skin and especially your hair. Do not indeed go rough on your skin, applying hair removal cream or wax. No, it is important to prepare the hair to facilitate its removal and therefore have painless hair removal.

Thus, it will be advisable to take a shower before doing your hair removal. The shower, and more particularly hot water, will indeed allow the hair to soften. Softer, it will thus be easier to remove and above all painless. It will tear off more easily from the wax or disintegrate more quickly under the effect of the depilatory cream.

Of course, don't either take a shower that's too hot to burn you, that's not the goal!

If you can't take a shower, don't hesitate to:

A scrub for painless hair removal

Similarly, the day before your hair removal, I advise you to exfoliate the area concerned. Because the scrub will have two effects that will promote painless hair removal:

  • the first is to deeply cleanse your skin, in particular by removing dead cells. Thus, if you use strips of wax for example to do your hair removal, they will adhere perfectly to the skin and make hair removal more effective. You'll be less likely to have to go over the area a second time to remove all of your hair.

  • the second is that it will help promote good regrowth of your hair and prevent the appearance of ingrown hairs.

Cold water for painless hair removal

Here is a tip for painless hair removal that is not known to a large number of people, especially men. Know that while hot water prepares the hair for waxing, cold water, or in any case cold, helps soothe the skin after a waxing session. And so to have hair removal without pain. Also, I advise you, as soon as you have finished depilating yourself, to apply ice cubes to the depilated skin or, so that it is not very cold, a glove filled with ice cubes.

You can even apply this glove of ice cubes before doing your hair removal to anesthetize the area.

The right timing for painless hair removal

If you want to do hair removal without pain, another advice that we could apply to you is not to wait until the last moment, or that your hair is too long! It is indeed advisable to do your hair removal without pain as soon as the hair reaches 3 cm to 4 cm in length.
