Manscaping 101: hair removal options
More and more men are opting for the clean shaven look; not only on their faces but for their bodies too. Whether your motives are purely aesthetic or for more of an aerodynamic functionality, this is unknown territory for many manly bros. There are various ways one can remove body hair and MANBOX looks at your options for a smooth, hairless body.
If you are manly enough to withstand the pain, waxing is a very viable option to getting rid of hair. The main advantage is the long-lasting results; expect to be fuzz-free for up to 6 weeks. The disadvantage obviously being that it can hurt! Depending on the specific part of your body, you can go from being uncomfortable to wincing in pain. If you are new to waxing, opt to get assistance from a professional.
Shaving has to be one of the easiest ways to get rid of hair on any part of your body; although it's not as long-lasting as waxing. You would have become accustomed to shaving for some time now and apart from the odd nick and cut, this is a great way to go. Important to bear in mind is to ensure that you use a new, good razor and some frothy shaving cream; also remember to moisturise after your shaving marathon.
Hair removal creams
Another super easy way to become a hairless machine is by utilising hair removal creams; also known as depilatory creams. You simply apply the cream, wait a few minutes for the chemical reaction to take place and then wash it off, together with the unwanted hair. Again, this is pretty straightforward but the effects do not last as long as with waxing, as it removes hair from the surface and not from the root.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is becoming more and more popular and the main advantage of this minimising hair method is that it's very long-lasting and a lot of the time, permanent, depending on the person. Laser hair removal works by targeting the cells that create the hair follicles while stunting the hair's growth. You will need to go for various sessions but the good news is that there are nifty gadgets on the market that you can use at home, which will reduce those costly salon visits.
