Weekly beauty tutorials: shed the winter pelt
Thursday 01 July 2010
Bikini? Check. Last-minute gym sessions? Check. But what about lasting smooth skin on the beach (or in the city)? Shavers and epilators can give you rashes in the summer heat, gels and creams burn and smell, waxing hurts, and laser is expensive - find the lesser evil with these tutorials.
For a first overview, watch this video by Better, which invited the founder of the shefinds.com product blog to discuss pluses and cons of shaving, tweezing, waxing, lasering and 'sugaring.'
PurseBuzz explains the advantages of epilators: yes, they can be painful, but you won't have to worry about your hair growing back for weeks.
Hair removal gels and creams obviously hurt less, but are less straightforward to use. Also, they can smell bad and burn on the skin. IslandPersona thinks she has found the perfect product that avoids all those situations: Veet Hair Removal Gel Cream.
Thinking about getting a bikini wax? Watch this demonstration first to get an idea of the procedure, before you decide whether to wax at home or ask a professional to do it. The video series by MonkeeSee also includes an overview of the basic equipment and techniques on how to wax your eyebrow and lip areas.
If you'd like something more drastic and are considering permanent hair removal, watch the following video to learn more about options available to you, including laser, IPL (intense pulsed light) and electrolysis.
