‘I will die on this hill!’ 7 hair removal methods vouched for by our beauty expert

These products will make summer hair removal easier.

Not all summer beauty topics are glamorous. That sentiment swirls around the idea of a grooming dilemma most women face, and that is unwanted hair. From our faces to our legs and our underarms, the quest for smooth skin is a summer priority.

Studio 5 Style & Beauty Contributor Megan Moore shared her best shaving solutions.

The Peach Fuzz Problem

We all have it, that fine layer of hair on our faces that we often ignore until it starts affecting our makeup application. Megan regularly removes peach fuzz every other week.

“I can tell when my makeup doesn’t go on as well,” Megan said. “It kind of feels like it’s on the surface.” She uses a Body Hair Identifier Spray, a powdery product that clings to the hair, making it easier to see and remove.

The Razor Debate

Megan recommended the Tinkle razors. “I go back to them time and time again,” Megan exclaimed. She loves them for their sharpness and the angle of the blade. However, she said it’s best not to use them more than one to two times to maintain their sharpness and prevent skin damage.

The Nair Revolution

“For smooth legs, I will die on this hill: that Nair does not get enough love,” Megan emphasized. She argued that it’s better than shaving or waxing because it prevents ingrown hairs and bumps. Plus, it exfoliates the skin, leaving your legs feeling fresh and smooth.

Waxing for the Brave

If you’re a little bit more gutsy, Megan suggested a wax system for small areas like underarms and the bikini area. “This is really great for small area waxing at home,” Megan said. The system involves microwavable wax beads that harden on the skin and that you then pull off, removing hair from the follicle level.

Laser Hair Removal at Home

For a more high-tech solution, Megan suggested an at-home laser hair removal device. While it is not as strong as professional treatments, it’s great for maintaining small areas like the mustache area, underarms, and bikini line.

“It’s a pulse of light, and it gives you a little bit of a snappy feeling, kind of like a rubber band,” Megan explained, “But it’s very, very minimal.”

Quick Touch-Ups with a Trimmer

For dry touch-ups, Megan recommended a trimmer system. “It’s going to trim hair, but it’s not going to remove it, so keep that in mind,” Megan said. It’s perfect for quick fixes before you hit the beach, or for tricky areas like knees and ankles where a wet razor might be hard to use.

Preventing Ingrown Hairs

To prevent those pesky ingrown hairs and razor burn, Megan suggested using an ingrown concentrate. It comes with a little scrubber for exfoliating in the shower and helps keep your skin smooth and bump-free.

“After a wax, after shaving, put on your ingrown concentrate on to help keep everything so you don’t get those bumps and razor burn,” Megan recommended.
