Hair removal can be tricky, we have all had our epic fails, cuts, burns and nasty rashes with the good ol’ razor but depending on the area of hair you wish to banish, choosing the right tool is essential. Through trial and error, here is what to expect during this gruelling chore.

Begin with choosing the right method to remove your hair.
The most painful experience. If you really must, stick to your bikini area, nobody got time to endure that much pain.
This is the most common method. Keep to large areas like legs and stay away from the bikini line, unless you want that area to look like herpes decided to visit. Don’t be shy with that shaving cream, it prevents cuts and leaves your skin feeling smooth.
Hair removal creams.
Another pain free solution, although smelly, it’s pretty effective. You can do your whole body, but you will be going through tubes and tubes of the stuff, so stick to bikini lines (if waxing isn’t your thing). Other parts of your body where the hair is quite fine, be warned not to leave the cream on for too long otherwise you’ll get burnt.
Threading and tweezing.
Don’t even think about threading or tweezing your whole body. Keep that face hair and those single loners that pop up on your chin/chest clean. Before you think it would be easier to just draw on eyebrows, stop. Just stop yourself.
If you can afford it. Do it. Then you can ignore all the above.
What not to do.
…Recommend it to your boyfriend.
…Get tempted to eat the wax. It’s not honey people.
…Go directly to the beach after removing hair. The skin is too sensitive to the sun, wait about 4 to 5 hours before exposing it.
…Remove all your hair. The more you shave, the more will grow back.
…Sneak up on people and shave their head. It’s pretty funny though when it’s not you.
Now you’re ready for sexy, smooth skin.
