The Best in Hair Removal

Hair removal is a general bug bear for most women, but as technology advances we have been blessed with far more options than the irritating stubble rash left from shaving.

Whether you are dark haired, light haired or somewhere in between we are here to explore the options for all women when it comes to hair removal.

It ‘s OK to admit you’re a wimp when it comes to hair removal, and you’re not alone, most women still shave as they are afraid of the pain caused by waxing and epilating. Well we are not here to tell you it is pain free (because then we would be big fat liars), no we are here to tell you it is a lot less painful than it used to be, especially with the introduction of IPL and Lazer hair removal.

At the end of the day they do say ‘no pain, no gain’, and we all know total body beauty is no painless task.

Hair removal can be tailored to suit any budget and here is our guide to the different methods and costs of effective hair removal.

Waxing:

Waxing is a quick and easy way to remove unwanted hair, pulling the hair out at the root, it generally lasts about 2-3 weeks or depending on how fast your hair grows.

If you are new to waxing you want to start off small and it maybe worth you while to inlist a good friend to help you pull off the strips.

A great starter pack is this Bliss Poetic Waxing Starter Series – £13.50.

Bliss Poetic Waxing starter kit - including wax strips for the face and body, bliss Azulene Oil, and Bliss Ingrown Eliminating Pads.

 Epilating: 

Epilating is not for the faint hearted, for some it is minor irritation and for the more sensitive skined it is quite a challenge.

The best Epilators we have a Lookfantastic.com are from Braunand Me My Elos.

The Braun Silk-Épil 7 Dual Epilator 7871 – £112.00, is no buget beauty item, using Close-Grip Technology, the Braun Silk-Épil 7 Dual Epilator removes hair by the root, while integrated blades exfoliate the skin’s surface to reveal a ‘new skin’ feeling that lasts, in just one stroke. That’s why Cosmopolitan have called the Silk-epil 7 Dual Epilator a beauty must-have!

Safe and painless, the radio frequency is attracted to the pre-heated follicle, heating it further to inhibit hair re-growth. The Me My Elos penetrates the skin deeper than a laser to fully disable the hair follicle. After four treatments with a two-week interval between each one, you can expect to see an 89% reduction in body hair.

The IPL machine is the best hair removal product for long term hair removal, although it has a hefty price tag, in some cases the IPL treatment stops hair growth alltogether in some areas, depending on your skin and hair colour. The Me My Elos IPL machine works best on fair skin with dark hair, but is also effective on other hair and skin colours. The device can be used on the arms, legs, armpits, bikini area, legs, chest, abdomen and back.
