Dealing with unwanted hair is just part of the beauty process with which every woman has to deal. There are three main methods of taking care of said hair that being shaving, waxing, and plucking. There are also depilatory creams and lasers that, but for today we will stick to the basic three options: shaving, waxing, and plucking.


This is the most common method to remove hair, especially in the leg region. You don’t have to leave home to do this. It’s quick and relatively easy. For women, it isn’t advisable to shave your face or other sensitive parts such as the underarms. Even on your legs, you run the risk of cutting yourself with your razor or irritating your skin which can result in burning and painful. Shaving works by cutting the hair off at the root but doesn’t remove the root itself.


This option keeps your hair free for a longer period, because hair is removed from the root. It creates a smoother feel and appearance in comparison to shaving. For best results, seek the help of a professional esthetician. Professionals will cut down the risk of problems from waxing like infections. Since waxing leaves your pores exposed, bacteria can enter into the skin causing problems.

Plucking & Tweezing

This hair removal method is most popular for eyebrows. Plucking also removes the hair from the root, but the process is slower than waxing as you can only remove one or two hairs at a time. By keeping tweezers away from your bikini line and your underarms, you will likely prevent any irritation that can come from tweezing.

Each hair removal method has its own benefits and problems. By understanding how each method will affect your skin, you can properly choose the method that works best for your skin. Your goal is to remove your hair with as little irritation as possible.
