The obvious answer is shaving. The problem is how quickly hair grows back. I can shave, step out of the shower, get a chill and suddenly it's like I didn't even shave in the first place.
You could visit a professional for wax or laser hair removal but it's still going to be painful and puts a hefty dent in your wallet.
At-home waxing and epilating can be intimidating but as you continually do it, the hair strand grows back weakened making the removal less painful. Also, as with all things, as you master the techniques the process becomes quicker and easier.
Here are some extra special tips from our connections at BodyHonee and Satin Smooth to make things a little less “ouch” inducing.
* Take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen about 30 minutes before, this can help reduce any localized pain and inflammation.
* Hold the skin as taut as possible while pulling off the wax or running over it with the epilator.
* Use calm breathing, take a deep breath as the wax goes on, and a short exhale as it comes off.
* The FIRST time you use an epilator, shave the day before; with epilating you want the hair to be short as you run the epilator over your skin.
NOTE: Make sure to still follow all directions from the waxing or epilator system very closely.
