The hair that grows around your bikini area can be tedious to deal with, especially when swimsuit season rolls around. If body hair is something that makes you feel insecure, you’re probably looking for the best possible way to get rid of it.
Never fear. We’re here to give you the lowdown on getting rid of pubic hair, temporarily or for good.
We’re sure you’re at least familiar with some of these hair removal methods. These are the most common ways that people get rid of body hair. Some people prefer one over the other, but the most important thing is to follow the proper routine both before and after to make sure you get the best results.
Shaving your bikini hair is easy because it only requires a razor and some shaving cream. You should keep in mind that it is also very easy to cut yourself with this razor and cause ingrown hairs or razor burn. To avoid this, you should always make sure that you’re using a clean razor, to begin with.
Get the area wet beforehand and apply a shaving cream or gel. This will greatly reduce the risk of cutting yourself with the razor blade. When you start to shave the area, go with the grain, and hold your skin taut. Only go over the area once and do so slowly and gently. Each time the razor is full of hair, rinse it off in the running water.
If you prefer waxing, you’re extremely brave. This method can be pretty painful for people with sensitive skin and is not for the faint of heart. Waxing your bikini area will allow you to be hair-free for a longer period than shaving will.
You can get your bikini area waxed professionally, or you can do it by yourself at home. It is best to leave this method of hair removal to the professionals. If waxing is done the wrong way, it can cause a lot of painful irritation or even an infection.
If you decide that you want to wax your own pubic area, you’ll need to buy either wax strips or wax itself. You should make sure that you clean the area before applying the wax and that the wax isn’t going to burn your skin. When you apply the wax and the strip to your skin, wait a few seconds and then gently rip the strip off of your skin. Be extremely careful with this DIY method because hot wax can be dangerous, especially for delicate skin like your pubic area.
Another method for removing bikini hair is tweezing. This method can be painful just like waxing, but it is fairly straightforward. All you need is a pair of tweezers, and you’re good to go. Tweezing or plucking can be useful for cleaning up certain areas of your pubic area. It can be tedious to tweeze the entire pubic area and would probably take hours to do.
Remember to be gentle if you are going to tweeze this area. If you pluck the hair out with too much force, you risk injuring your hair follicle. Use a clean pair of tweezers that are not being used for anything else. It’d be pretty gross if you were plucking your pubic hair and your eyebrows with the same tweezers. Always pull the hair out in the direction that it grows in, and make sure that you have good lighting.
More Permanent Solutions
If none of these temporary solutions seem like the best method for you, we’ve got some more to cover here. These options offer permanent results for hair removal. Shaving, waxing, and tweezing can become an endless cycle of trying to keep your hair gone.
It can feel like a losing battle. Laser hair removal, electrolysis, and IPL all offer results that can last a lifetime and won’t require you to keep buying razors every few months. Let’s talk more about these treatments and how they’re done.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal involves a laser beam that uses light and heat energy to absorb the melanin in your hair follicle. This will stop the hair from growing back after multiple treatments. Only specialists can perform laser hair removal properly, and you should always make sure that you find someone who is certified in performing this treatment.
Laser hair removal comes with a few side effects. Some people may experience redness or irritation after getting this treatment. Your skin also may temporarily change in pigment. These side effects are temporary and will usually go away after a few hours.
You will need to shave the area before you get laser treatment done. This may seem strange, but it is actually the only way to remove it without singeing the hair itself. You should also exfoliate your skin about three days before you go in for your treatment.
Electrolysis is different from laser hair removal because it uses radio frequencies to prevent your hair follicles from growing back. It also involves treating individual follicles, one at a time, rather than many like laser hair removal does. Electrolysis is approved by the FDA as the only official method for permanently removing body hair.
Similarly, electrolysis will also involve going to a professional and returning for multiple treatments. This can end up costing you a lot of money over the span of a year.
If you happen to be looking for a method that allows you to remove hair permanently, like electrolysis from the comfort of your home like shaving, then IPL might just be your new best friend. KENZZI’s IPL device allows you to remove pubic hair permanently in less than 10 minutes a day! This is a painless method for people who are busy but still want their downstairs to look silky smooth.
IPL devices destroy the root of the hair under your skin. The hair that grows back is a lot lighter in turn and will become more and more discolored after each treatment you perform. IPL throws your fear of ingrown hairs out the door. The damage to the hair happens under the skin so that it won’t mess with the regrowth in any way.
This method of hair removal can be extremely cost-effective (yes, we’re a little biased). You won’t have to continually pay for treatments every month for an entire year. With KENZZI, you buy the device one time, and you can use it for years after. You’ll start to notice a difference in your bikini area after just a few sessions, and if not, we have a 90-day money-back guarantee.
Finding the best method for removing your bikini hair can be quite a journey. The method that you think is right for you is your choice. Everyone is different. Some people prefer to continue shaving their pubic hair to keep it nice and groomed. That’s okay! We’re not here to judge your life decisions.
If you’re sick of ingrown hairs and the endless cost of razors, then you should think about trying an IPL device for removing your bikini hair! Try KENZZI today, and you won’t regret it.
