Shaving and Depilatory Creams Hair Removal

These techniques fall into the category of depilation, which is a process of removing hair near the level of the skin, by shaving or using chemical creams that dissolve the hair on the skin surface.

Shaving is an abrasive method of hair removal that can irritate the skin. Regular shaving on certain areas of the body e.g. underarms, bikini or even the face causes the skin to darken this is especially true for Asian skin. Ingrown hair is also a problem with shaving. Contrary to popular belief, shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker. It only seems that way because the razor blunts the hair ends and makes them feel coarse and stiff.

Shaving is faster and convenient way of hair removal and you don’t have to wait for it to grow a certain length before removing it.

If your underarms have darkened due to shaving, you can try the following home remedy: slice a lemon and sprinkle it with sugar and rub this on the darkened area twice a week and over time this will lighten the pigmentation. Try Underarms Waxing instead or consider getting Laser Hair Removal.

Chemical depilatory creams can sometimes irritate the skin and again cause the skin to darken especially in Asian people.
