Home Hair Removal Tips - Face Hair Removal

Why pay the professionals, when body and face hair removal can be done in the comfort of your own home?
This article discusses popular methods for removing hair at home. These techniques can be used on any part of the body, including the face. Just remember that for face hair removal, you may want to do a patch test first. Facial skin tends to be more delicate, and sensitivity reactions are possible.
Here are the most common at-home methods of removing hair:
Cheap and quick, no wonder shaving is so popular. Do not worry about hair growing back darker and coarser: this is merely an urban myth. Invest in sharp razor blades and change them regularly, otherwise you risk nicks and cuts. Razors marketed for women are angled for feminine curves, allowing you to cut the hairs more closely. Try to shave at night when the fluid has drained from your skin from standing up all day. More of your hair will be exposed when your skin is not puffed up.
Tweezing is slower but lasts longer than shaving. Because hair is pulled out at the root, hair takes longer to grow back. For small areas, tweezing is also better than shaving because the hair tip grows back softer and more tapered. Make sure you use a clean, sharp pair of tweezers for each job. Clean the tweezer tips with alcohol after every time to prevent infection. The best time to tweeze is after a shower when your pores have been steamed open, making plucking easier.
Depilatory Creams
You must absolutely do a patch test with any chemicals that you put on your face. But if your skin can tolerate products like Nair or Veet, depilatories can be a good at-home hair removal solution. As with tweezing, it is best to do this after a hot shower or bath, when the pores have been steamed open and will more readily release the hair. Apply the cream and wait for the hairs to dissolve - set a timer! Creams should only be used on unbroken, unirritated skin. Absolutely avoid if you have any small cuts, irritations or rashes present.
These are only the most popular at-home methods for body and face hair removal. There are new techniques and devices being invented all the time. Some of the newest technologies are at-home light and heat technology removal. You may have seen these devices on TV, marketed as the same technology that you'd get in a cosmetologist's office.
