Hair Removal Guide: Which Method Is Best for You?

There are several methods that you can choose from when it comes to hair removal, some of which are more expensive, or more complicated, than others. In this guide, we will view some of the pros and cons of different techniques.


This is one of the cheapest and easiest methods of removing hair, as you can do it yourself in the shower, and it only takes a few minutes to cover large areas.

Best for:

Legs, underarms, and even the bikini line, only if you are not prone to irritation, razor burn, and ingrown hairs.

Safety concerns:

Nicks and cuts are always a possibility, however, if you use a razor that has been specifically designed for women, and has been designed to handle the curves around the ankles and knees, replace the blade often, and lubricate skin well to minimize any possible damage.

How effective is it?

With the right razor and technique, you can achieve smooth skin. However, shaving only removes the hair that is above the skin, meaning it will grow back very quickly. Chances are you will need to shave every few days.


Warm, melted wax will be applied to the skin in strips and will follow the same direction as hair growth, after which it will be ripped off in the opposite direction. The heat will cause the hair follicles to dilate, making it easier for the entire hair follicle, including the root, to be ripped out.

Best for:

Small areas such as the bikini area, upper lip, and eyebrows.

Safety concerns:

You should never wax any area in which you regularly apply Retin A. This is because it helps to shed dead layers.

Waxing can also result in ingrown hairs, especially in the bikini area.
