Hair Removal Cream FAQs

Dec 25, 2007
Facial and body hair is normal in both men and women. However, hair growth is different among people. Some women may have fine facial hair while others may have thicker, darker facial hair. For many women, visible hair growth on the face and body can be unattractive. Of even more concern is how to remove them safely and effectively. Let's talk about hair removal creams.

What Is A Hair Removal Cream?

A hair removal cream, also called a depilatory, is a skin care solution that weakens hair so it can be removed. The cream essentially breaks down disulfide bonds and eventually dissolves hair so that it can be washed away, scraped, or wiped off with ease.

What Are The Advantages Of Using The Cream?

The obvious advantage of using the cream is that you don't have to shave ever again. Shaving can cause nicks and cuts in the skin, waste a lot of time, and can be very inconvenient especially when you have to shave almost everyday. Hair removal creams on the other hand are painless, speedy and easy to use. An additional advantage is that they also act as exfoliators that get rid of dead skin cells. Furthermore, these products are inexpensive compared to laser hair removal procedures and electrolysis.

How Long Do Effects Last?

After using the hair removal cream, effects will last from a few days to several weeks. Using the cream will definitely give you longer effects compared to shaving. Whether effects will last a few days or more depends on your hair growth rate.

What Is The Right Way To Use Hair Removal Creams?

It's always best to read directions carefully and to follow the suggested time needed for the cream to work. It is also a good idea to perform a patch test first before applying the cream over larger areas such as the legs, underarms, bikini areas and face. It's generally not advisable to use a hair removal cream on your face, since the skin on your face is different from the skin on the rest of your body. However, there are hair removal products that can be used on both the face and body (of course, a patch test is still advised before facial application).

How Do I Know Which Cream Works Best?

There are several types of hair removal creams available on the market. However, they may be harsh on the skin and cause allergic reactions. There are products, though, that contain certain ingredients to provide more protection. Look for products that contain moisturizers, vitamins, antioxidants, aloe vera, and other natural plant extracts to sooth and nourish skin at the same time.

When choosing a product, go for natural ingredients and a non-irritating solution. Sensitive skin may develop an allergic reaction to some of these creams, so again a patch test prior to full application is advised.
