Risks associated with self-hair removal


There are a million reasons for girls to go and get rid of unwanted body hair. Be it the aesthetics of
being a lady, or just the peer pressure for going smooth, just to fit in! Whatever the reason may be,
I understand the need to feel smooth.

Lately, I have noticed a trend of DIY hair removal methods like hair removal creams, razors and
epilators doing the rounds in the market. Just the fact that many would find the whole procedure
of waxing painful and expensive is what drives them to try the “home remedies”. Yes, I agree! The
experience isn’t really rolling in a pile of goose feathers while you get tickled with rosebuds and
the more exotic the service gets, the more expensive it becomes!

But let’s get real! There are some things that need to be left to the pros for the best possible
outcome! It’s always a safer option to trust the experienced aestheticians, like the ones in
Bodycraft, for your hair removal needs because they maintain high standards of hygiene and safety.

Let’s look at some of the common risks of the various self-hair removal procedures:

1. The pests under your skin!

I think we all can agree on the fact that one of the most common issues related to shaving is
ingrown hair! Don’t we all just hate it?!

Ingrown hair is basically when a hair gets trapped under the skin before it leaves the follicle. Or
even when a hair grows out of the follicle but curls back on itself and re-enters the skin.

Moreover don’t even get me started on the constant snips and cuts we get while handling the
blade! Waxing doesn’t seem all that bad now, does it?

2. The chemistry isn’t right!

Another option girls keep using are the hair removal creams. These depilatory creams are loaded
with chemicals (duh!). Needless to say, there are loads of issues with hair removal creams. First of
all, while companies add sweeteners to the smell there is always this ugly odor that lingers! Second
of all, where there are chemicals, there are allergies (in cases more often than you would think!).

Why even bother going through hell when getting smooth is just a pull away?

3. When the machinery goes wrong!

Using an epilator can have a very ugly reaction to your skin. I’m talking, ingrown hair, rashes, skin
bumps and what not.

The good thing is we still have the good ol’ waxing to go smooth. And if you’re looking for a more
long lasting option, laser hair reduction is always there!
