Hair removal is not exactly one of life’s great pleasures -and we should know! Rough shaves, painful waxes, ingrown hairs, sensitive areas or buddy spots -it’s not always easy to remove body hair without pain and irritation. However, there are practical tips to help you avoid or at least limit pain. Here are 5 of them!

1/ Make a body scrub

Without being anything revolutionary in terms of minimising the pain linked with hair removal, a body scrub can be a great ally: it reduces the risk of ingrown hairs and facilitates hair removal.

5/ Apply a hot towel

Soak a towel in hot water and apply it for a few seconds to the relevant area before waxing. Immediately afterwards, re-apply the hot towel for an anaesthetic effect.
