We know that we all want to look good and feel good about ourselves. The problem is that we all have different needs, body shapes, personalities, and styles.
But one thing we can all agree on is the fact of shaving unwanted hair from our bodies, whether it’s the face or legs or underarms or even your pubic region, or even many people get hair with medical treatments such as testosterone replacement therapy.
There are several ways of removing hair, such as waxing, threading(for eyebrows), tweezing and plucking, shaving, using chemicals and creams – but these methods do come with a price – pain, and irritation!
Removing excess body hair has traditionally been done by plucking, waxing, shaving, or other methods. While these are still the primary techniques for removing excess hair, there are now several creams that can help you out with this task. Here are the top three creams that have managed to wow us so far:
1. Tend skin
This product has been around for several decades now, but it’s still one of the most effective creams to treat skin irritation and ingrown hairs that can result from shaving or waxing.
This cream has a high percentage of glycolic acid. Thus, it can exfoliate your dead skin cells, making them more flexible and easy to remove through hair removal methods.
It reduces the chances of acne outbreak and ingrown hairs and rashes after hair removal creams, especially for sensitive areas. It also comes in a spray version ideal for removing excess body hair from large areas such as legs or arms without getting too close to the skin.
The company has been around since the 1960s, and they’ve done an excellent job at putting this product on shelves in almost any drugstore or retail store. The cream is non-stingy when applied directly to the skin. Thus, it can be used on the most sensitive areas without irritating.
What makes it ideal is that you don’t need shaving cream or preparation liquid before applying it. All you have to do is clean your area, apply Nair directly after shaving or waxing, wait 10 minutes, and then rinse off with warm water. It does not stain clothes either which means you will wear whatever outfit you like immediately after using the product.
3. Satin Smooth Precision
This cream has been manufactured and advertised for shaving or waxing sensitive areas such as underarms. The unique thing about this cream is that it contains ingredients that cause the skin to swell slightly, thus reducing the chances of ingrown hairs.
It also helps reduce pain by inducing numbness on contact with the skin, and it does not sting when applied directly on cuts or nicks from shaving or waxing. There are no harmful side effects reported either, even after long-term use.
If shaving is your preferred method, here are some tools that might help you achieve softer, smoother underarms!
4. The Bump Fighter Razor
The first tool I have to mention is ‘The Bump Fighter Razor,’ designed for women. This razor has an advanced blade configuration that helps you achieve smoothness without irritation and includes a unique bump guard to protect the skin from nicks, cuts, bumps, and ingrown hairs. It’s also easy to grip even if your hands are wet or slippery!
Stylishly simple, this set of 2 3-blade razors features ergonomic rubber grips that offer superior control. An anti-slip handle provides added safety, while lubricating strips enhance the clean shave, leaving skin silky smooth.
5. The Remington Smooth & Silky Shaver
It is perfect for those wanting to shave quickly with less hassle. If you don’t have time to spare, the Remington Smooth and Silky will save you time.
This shaver includes a pivoting head to conform to the curves of your body and softly cushioned skin-friendly shaving heads. Plus, an extralong handle provides easy reach for hard-to-reach places.
6. Lady Shave Perfect
Now, if you’re looking for a tool that is sure to protect your underarms from razor burn, then the Lady Shave Perfect should be placed in your beauty cabinet!
The “pink” lady shave perfect has been designed with a unique formula that will help avoid nicks, cuts, and irritation by softening your hair first – this means less tugging and pulling during shaving, which can irritate you! It’s also great at helping those hard-to-reach areas such as your legs and bikini line.
If you decide to use the cream product, follow the instructions carefully and spray it from an arm’s distance.
Also, do not get closer than a couple of inches while spraying or applying on sensitive areas, or you might burn yourself! It does work well, though, so it might be a good idea to try it out if you have some time to spare.
If you don’t want to spend much above an average of $35 for a bottle of hair removal cream, then Satin Smooth Precision is your best bet since it also comes in a bit of a travel pack with three different sized bottles that will last longer.
The Bump Fighter Razor has been designed specifically for shaving underarms which makes life easier.
Still, if you like razors, then the Lady Shave Perfect might be your perfect companion for those longer, harder-to-reach hairs.
Both the Remington Smooth & Silky and Lady Shave Perfect can be costly, though, so if you’re on a budget, try out Satin Smooth Precision! If shaving is not for you, consider using Nair or Satin Smooth – they’ve been known to work perfectly and cause no burns.
