feature Shaving Shaving is a quick, convenient option for those of us who live busy lifestyles. However, shaving only cuts the hairs, it doesn’t remove them from the root. The hairs also tend to grow back much faster than other hair removal methods. You’ll probably find you need to shave every day or so to maintain silky smooth skin.
Philips SC1983 Lumea Essential IPL Hair Removal System, $549 Epilator Delivering the same smooth results as waxing, epilators feature tiny tweezers that grasp multiple hairs and pull them out as you roll the epilator over your skin. Be sure to exfoliate before and after epilator treatment, as dead skin cells can clog the affected hair pores to form pimples and irritation on the skin. Depilatory creams Once known for their nasty odour, depilatory creams have come a long way. Now these creams smell like tropical blends or spa treatments, and they commonly possess moisturising and nourishing properties. Like shaving, depilatory creams fail to remove hair from the root, so hair will grow back quite quickly. It is important to use depilatory creams towards the end of your shower or bath, as hydrated hair is easier to remove than dry hair. Waxing After waxing, you will generally be left with silky, smooth legs for up to six weeks. However, when hair does grow back, you’ll need to let it grow to a certain length (at least half an inch) before the next wax. Because waxing removes hair from the root, hair shouldn’t feel spiky as it returns and regular waxing has the potential to reduce the amount of hair that does grow back. www.cosbeauty.com.au 67
