How not to Harm Yourself When Using a Hair Removal Cream
Using a depilatory cream is one of the most common methods of removing body hair. It is convenient to apply and provides quick results. It’s extremely important to use depilatory creams correctly in order to avoid unpleasant consequences. I’ve decided to investigate how a hair removal cream works and what pros and cons it has.
How it works
Depilatory creams can be used for removing hair from the entire body, bikini area, armpits, face, legs, or arms. Besides, you can choose the cream according to your skin type (sensitive, dry, or normal). The chemicals that make part of depilatory creams dissolve hair. It happens thanks to the high pH level which determines the amount of hydrogen ions in a solution. A pH level differs in various parts of the body. That’s why hair removal creams are developed according to the indicators shown on different skin areas.
Hair removal creams can give you a more lasting effect than shaving. In addition, when applied correctly, a depilatory cream doesn’t leave any scratches on your skin. Another important advantage is its low price. You can easily find hair removal creams in any beauty store.
Although depilatory creams don’t leave scratches, they can have a negative impact on your skin. When you apply the cream for the first time, it is necessary to check the tolerance of the product’s ingredients. Apply a small amount of the cream to the area of your skin where you are going to remove hair from. Leave the cream for the appropriate amount of time as indicated in the instructions. If there are no burns or allergic reactions on your skin throughout the day, you can use this depilatory cream. Do not forget to clean your skin with alcohol-free products before applying the cream. Hair removal creams often contain acids which smell bad. So people with high sensitivity can hardly use such products. In addition, depilatory creams are not efficient enough. It often takes more than one procedure to remove all the hair. As a result, you might have skin irritations and burns.
