The struggle to remove unwanted hair on the face, arms, legs, and the rest of the body is most definitely real.
Whether you prefer to shave, wax, or use a tweezer on those unmentionables – there is no denying that any of these methods can leave skin looking red and inflamed. Below are just a few quick and easy ways to remove unwanted hair at home.
Ideal for: bikini line, underarms
Remove stubborn hair straight from the root with a hard wax formula. All you need to do is warm the wax-pot, and apply it straight onto the skin. Wait for the wax to set, then just pull off to remove hair!
The formula is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin, and won’t leave red bumps and irritation afterwards. Use a fragrance-free moisturiser to hydrate skin and assist in the healing process.
