Don’t do These!

  • Unprepared skin. Before hair is removed skin has to be washed with warm sudsy water to open the pores. This makes the hair easier to remove and cause less damage to the skin surface. Tap lightly to dry before removing hair. Apply aftershave or witch hazel to close the pores after to keep hair follicles from getting inflamed or infected.
  • Loose skin. Aside from chemicals that depilate, one needs to pull the skin away from the direction of hair growth to allow whatever tool (blade, wax, tweezer, etc.) used to remove hair in one swipe. It keeps the skin from being injured in the process and mechanically exposes hair shaft to the ingredient or tool used for removing hair.
  • Hair quantity. Sometimes hair is either too little or too much for a single session of hair removal. Either way, it ends up poorly done and needs to be retouched after a couple of days to get it right. A quarter of an inch to barely an inch long would just be the right length to start trimming them off.
  • Sharing paraphernalia. Tweezers, scissors, wax, or shavers must never be shared with other people. It may be economical or the other person doesn’t mind but since it is used for personal body grooming, don’t share it. Besides, you would know how long a product last and you can replace it before it gets used up or worn out.
  • Getting attached to a specific tool for hair removal means not replacing it even when it has been expired or has become dull or unhinged. Wax and depilatory products have expiry dates while shaving blades and tweezers get worn out after a couple of times. Use only the freshest and newest tool or product.
  • Bad techniques. There is a correct way of executing a proper shave, the right way to wax, the best technique for tweezing, and the suitable depilatory for specific body parts. If you’re exploring which hair removal technique is best for you, read how it is done or watch videos how to go about it before giving it a go.
  • Poor research. If you’re into a specific way of removing unwanted hair, read up on new methods to get it over and done with efficiently. Ask professionals or have somebody demonstrate how they do it.
  • Irregular schedule. Regular grooming is necessary for hair removal to allow hair to be sufficiently long enough to be removed without encouraging ingrown hair to develop. In between treatments, growing hair can be discreetly masked with cosmetics or pieces of clothing.
  • Terrible timing. Removing unwanted hair where time should be allocated and that you won’t feel rushed to get it done and still have enough time left for your bare skin to recover.
  • Amateur treatment. Every now and then, get your unwanted hair treated by professionals in the spa, barber shops, or beauty parlours. Other techniques of hair removal, such as lasers, cannot be done DIY and has to be performed by trained professionals.
