What else you need to know?

In the marketplace, most of over-the-counter waxes that can be used at home are made with paraffin & beeswax – and come in microwaveable containers or come with containers that can be warmed /heated very fast on the stove. However, this kind of wax is not your single choice.

There are also products that are made with water & sugar base. Typically, they are less sticky than others and any excess can be washed with soapy water. The benefit from this water-soluble product is gentler for the skin, particularly if you want to use it on the sensitive skin.

Furthermore, there are available some products that are designed with pre-coated wax strips. They are commonly used to remove hair from small sites of your skin such as lips or brows. The benefit, they are virtually mess-free, therefore you can clean it easier.

Additionally, for people with sensitive skin, the use of dye-free and perfume-free wax is more recommended. Typically, this kind of wax is usually labeled with ‘hypoallergenic’.

And don’t forget to use facial toner (especially one that contains chamomile) after waxing. This can help soothe the skin, which then eventually can be very helpful to reduce the chance of getting swelling or redness on the skin.

If waxing is not helpful enough or other methods of hair removal (such as plucking, depilatory creams, threading, or even laser hair removal) also still don’t meet what you need, see a dermatologist for more advice!

There are some medicines that can be powerful enough to inhibit the growth of hair follicles.

For instance, there is a pill called spironolactone. It doesn’t get rid of the follicle of hair, but it can be effective enough to help reduce /slow the hair growth on sites of your body where the hair is not expected.
