While we might not be baring all in a bikini this time of year, there are multiple other reasons to keep our body hair under control. Problem is, shaving can be oh so boring, and when you’re not frolicking around in short shorts and tank tops, it’s easy to let our hair removal routine fall by the way side. Even if you probably don’t want to get caught with prickly cactus legs.
Keep your skin smooth as a baby’s bottom and free of ingrown hairs so when it comes time to strip down to your bare essentials, your skin is silky smooth.
Try some of our favorite hair removal products that will leave you ready to bare all at any time!
To Heal Ingrown Hairs… Try Completely Bare’s Bikini Bump Blaster ($9.99) to get rid of the appearance of ingrown hairs anywhere on the body. Used after waxing, shaving or depilatory creams, the glycolic and salicylic acid work together to prep the skin and cleanse the pores and send those ingrowns packing!
To Calm Redness After Waxing… Waxing can leave you red and inflamed, especially if you have sensitive skin. The Cool Fix Lip & Brow Formula ($21) provides a moisturizer that calms the skin after waxing. Just glide the rollerball over the skin to reduce redness and promote healing. Out tip: keep it in your purse so you can apply it right after waxing!
To Shave Seamlessly… Ever the fan’s of 2-in-1‘s, we love Schick Quattro For Women’s TrimStyle ($8.99) razor. This product works as a razor with 4 ultra-thin blades and an aloe and vitamin complex that leaves the skin feeling smooth for days. It also has a waterproof trimmer so you can clean the bikini area without even having to leave the shower!
To DIY Wax Flawlessly… We’ve been known to prefer to get our waxing done by professionals, but Nair Hair Removal Brazilian Spa Clay Body Wax Strips ($7.99) changed our minds. These wax strips are so easy to use and the results last up to 8 weeks–so much longer than shaving! Made with mineral-rich clay, mango butter and acai berry to moisturize and hydrate the skin while removing hair anywhere on the legs, body and bikini area, the heat-activated strips are seriously fool proof!
