Hair Removal Cream – Some Tips To Get The Best Results

One of the temporary solutions of removing unwanted hair is by using hair removal cream. You may want to try using this type of treatment if you are looking for a simple and easy way to treat unwanted hair. But not everyone who uses removal cream will be able to effectively remove all their unwanted body hair – particularly on the hard-to-reach areas.

Hair removal creams are also called depilatory creams. Depilatories specifically work on the skin’s surface and may not be able to completely remove hair through the follicles. Hair removal cream breaks up the hair on the surface of the skin, so you when you wipe them off with cloth, they come off with the cream after a couple of minutes.

In order for these depilatories to work effectively, one consideration is to know their ingredients. Make sure that they don’t harm your skin. Next step is to check if you’ll have any allergic reaction, and this is done by testing the cream on a small area of your skin. Make sure that you do this every time you are buying a skin or hair product because there are some harsh ingredients that may irritate your skin.

Other considerations are your type of hair, the amount of hair you want to remove and the surface where you’ll apply the hair removal cream. You should also consider the number of times you’ll apply the product and the amount you’ll use. Most users are required to apply depilatory creams at least once a week for better results.

Below are a few more tips in using hair removal cream:

Use warm water to wash the area where you want to remove the unwanted hair. This allows the pores to open up for effective and smoother hair removal.

Instead of applying, blot the cream on your skin. This is to prevent friction/rubbing action that may cause skin irritation. You may use a spatula as an applicator.

Immediately wash your hands after applying the product.

Follow the instructions on the product’s label/box. Follow the instructions accordingly – for example, you should only leave the product on your skin for 8 minutes.

Wipe off the cream with a cotton pad or cool wet washrag. It is ideal to wipe off towards your hair growth’s direction. You may apply lotion to reduce redness and to soothe your skin.

Lastly, always take caution when using any hair removal cream because most of the time they contain chemical-based ingredients. Always consult your dermatologist for proper guidance and for your safety.
