Depilation methods

And now let's figure out what methods of depilation exist today.
In such modern times, hair removal is in great demand. There are several ways to depilate and to avoid complications, you need to choose the method of hair removal that is right for you.

Tweezers, razors and electric epilators

Hair can be plucked with tweezers, an epilator, or shaved off. These methods are inexpensive and typical at home, but they have many disadvantages: after a razor, the "bristles" grow back for 3-5 days and it has the ability to irritate the skin, plucking causes pain.

Waxing and shugaring

Waxing (wax depilation) and sugaring (sugar depilation) are methods that can be used in the summer.
Wax helps to get rid of hair quickly, and the effect of depilation lasts for two to four weeks. This type of depilation is best trusted by qualified beauty salon masters. But, if you are not able to do this, you can carry out the procedure yourself at home. Any cosmetic store sells pre-made wax strips for different areas.
For depilation of all areas, except for the bikini and armpit areas, wax in cassettes is quite suitable for you. In order to carry out the procedure, it is enough to apply wax along the hair growth to the desired area, glue the bandage tape on top, and then sharply tear off the tape strictly against the hair growth.

Sugaring can be called one of the best methods of depilation, because sugar pastes have a natural composition, they are hypoallergenic. At home, such a procedure is difficult to implement, but nevertheless possible. This will require sugar in a cartridge and a cloth band. It is worth noting that the shugaring technique is directly opposite to the wax depilation technique, the composition must be applied against hair growth, and it must be removed strictly according to hair growth.
Regarding the depilation of areas such as the bikini area and underarms, it is still better to entrust qualified depilation specialists.
The advantages of these methods include complete hair removal with bulbs. New hairs begin to grow in 2-4 weeks, no bristles appear. Among the minuses, it hurts, there is a high probability of ingrown hair, irritation, edema and allergies, it cannot be used for varicose veins.

Photoepilation and laser

Effective methods are photo and laser hair removal. Vegetation is removed using special devices under the supervision of a specialist. This method of depilation can only be done in salons with the help of qualified specialists. It is expensive, but the masters promise a complete cessation of hair growth after several procedures. However, the result is covered by many contraindications and side effects: in the summer it is not recommended to use these methods, since contact of the skin with the sun is prohibited, the procedure can be very painful and require the use of anesthetic drugs, dermatologists warn about the possibility of developing skin cancer after laser and photoepilation.

Using depilatory creams

Removing unwanted vegetation with a cream is a painless and inexpensive way. This method can be used at home. The result of such depilation depends on the composition and quality of the selected product. Practice shows that depilatory creams are able to fight only with thin and soft hair, they simply "will not take" coarse bristles
Professional creams gently remove hairs and contain vitamins and oils for the skin to minimize irritation.

Products used before depilation

The means used before the procedure are mandatory. Every master must have at his disposal at least a gel before depilation and talcum powder before depilation. The task of the gel before depilation is to prepare the skin:
 - clean, degrease and disinfect.
- to reduce the time of depilation due to the better adhesion of the paste to the hairs.
- expand the mouth of the hair follicle for better penetration of the paste.
- to obtain a slight analgesic effect: the composition contains cooling menthol or other similar components.
Talc, which is used after the gel, before applying the sugar paste, is of particular importance among pre-depilation products. Its use is an indispensable part of the hair removal process performed by a professional master. Talc removes excess moisture and sebum, raises hairs, serves as a protective layer, protecting the skin from injury. The finely dispersed structure of talcum powder does not clog pores, contributes to a quick and comfortable procedure. 

Funds after depidation procedure

Any hair removal procedure causes minimal redness, and for some, even irritation. Therefore, it is very important to take proper care of your skin after the procedure.
The components that make up the lotion after depilation provide skin protection during this period, soften and soothe it, close the pores, preventing bacteria from causing inflammation. Not only talcum powder, before and after depilation, but also the subsequent home care will make the process of removing unwanted hair perfect. Regular use of creams and oils will moisturize the skin, make it soft, prevent fine hairs from growing in and slow down their growth. The products used in combination will make the depilation procedure painless and quick, without irritation and redness, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to have healthy, sensual and silky skin.

After the depilation procedure, the required area is treated with a caring agent. There are several types of funds designed for different zones:

- After depilating arms and legs in the spring and summer, use lighter textures, such as lotions.
- In winter, on large surfaces, it is better to use oil after depilation, as it nourishes and saturates the skin with microelements. 
- For sensitive areas, it is better to use creamy textures, as they moisturize the skin well. It is especially good to use an emulsion, it prevents moisture loss.
