Removing hair at home shouldn’t feel like a chore. Still, at-home hair removal isn’t always easy. But it is a convenient alternative to spending money at a salon, which clearly isn’t even an option right now.

You’ll find yourself not only saving money but also becoming a master pro at removing hair quickly and easily.

At home cream removal treatments cost around $10 to $30 per product for a good quality hair removal cream. That’s a significant saving. So whilst we are still in lockdown, now is the perfect time to master the art of removing hair at home.

Ingrown hairs are often inevitable. So, before pursuing the best at-home treatments, here are two important steps to consider to stop ingrown hairs:

  1. Exfoliating – removing dirt, oil and dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin will unclog your follicles. Use a brush or sponge to remove dead skin cells. You can also opt for chemical exfoliation products to dissolve them away with water 24 hours before you apply hair removal cream.
  2. Using proper techniques – ingrown hairs primarily result from incorrect methods of hair removal. When shaving using a razor, avoid dry shaving, shaving against the grain, excessively pulling on the skin, or using blunt razors. If waxing, always pull in the opposite direction of hair growth and as close to the skin as possible.

Stats have shown hair removal cream is still one of the most popular methods of removing hair at home. This is because it’s painless, provides long-lasting results and is undeniably easy to use.
