12 Ways to Depilate at Home: Wax On, Hair Off
We've all had to deal with body hair—heck, most of us have to spend a lifetime trying to get rid of it. A lucky few can afford professional hair removal at the salon, but the rest of us have to figure out what we can accomplish at home. These days there are more ways to remove that unsightly hair than just razors and creams. The frugal follicle-blaster has never had so many options.
Bliss Poetic Waxing Kit
If you’re going to attempt at-home waxing, Bliss is the way to go. The kit comes with a cup that makes it easy to heat the wax in the microwave, and the formula is gentle on skin all over the body. The set includes a pre-wax cleanser and a soothing post-wax oil.
Between bouts with the razor, waxer, or laser, this lotion suppresses hair production by inducing hair follicles into their dormant state. When used regularly, it can cause hair to grow back thinner, finer, and more slowly.
Mustached ladies are not just the stuff of carnivals—even beauty queens can get a little thick up top. Whether you have full-blown hair growth or just a little peach fuzz making you self conscious, this Bliss cream is specially-formulated for use on the face, so it's gentle on your skin.
No pain, no gain. Although it’s not as pain-free as other methods, the TRIA home laser system allows the user to gradually—and permanently—reduce unwanted hair on the legs, bikini area, arms, and (for fair-skinned people) underarms. It may seem expensive up front, but it’s cheaper than a lifetime of salon waxes.
This home hair remover uses light pulsating-technology to remove hair with the same results as professional laser hair removal services. The only downside is that it it's only meant to be used below your neck, so using it on facial hair isn't an option.
Razors will soon be relics of the past, now that carefully-crafted epilators have entered the market. A lighted head lets you see every hair, while 40 small tweezers do the plucking for you. The shave is supposedly so close that regrowth happens much slower than usual, and has a much finer texture.
