No one said being a woman was easy. In fact, being a woman sometimes means enduring pain to undo natural processes that happen to all human beings. This includes shaving, plucking, tweezing, and other painful methods you can think of in order to remove unwanted body hair. Of course, we know you don’t like it, but if you were to walk in a mall in a sleeveless top with underarm hair that could be braided, that would gather a lot of gazes, wouldn’t it? So, the question is, how do you carefully groom yourself to your comfort zone without inflicting unnecessary pain on yourself. Well, this article is all about finding answers. So, read on to know them all!
Even if you did not notice the thin line of hair growing above your lips, there would be people pointing it out to you. But we have ways to help you eliminate it without having to thread them out. Use hydrogen peroxide to lighten your mustache. It’s less expensive than other bleaching options and works just as well. It’s one of the most secure all-natural bleaches available (1). The technique is effective only for those with fine, light hair; brunettes should consider waxing instead.
2. Dark Underarms
Dark underarms are natural, and the more you shave them, the darker the skin gets. The problems arise when you need to flaunt them in your sleeveless top. But the good news is, it is possible to lighten them without using harmful chemicals.You may use a slice of potato and cucumber to scrub your underarms. Lemon juice may also be rubbed in, left to remain for 10 minutes, then rinsed out. Substitute 2 tablespoons of baking soda for the vinegar and 1 tablespoon of water. Simply combine the ingredients, rub them into your armpits for a minute, leave them on for 30 minutes, and then rinse them off. You should do this many times each week.
3. Large Pores
Pores can be significantly reduced and tightened with a clay mask. Try adding rose water or milk to the pack to improve the effect. Steaming your face at home is another option. Put a cloth over your head, and bring your face close to some boiling water for three minutes. Brown sugar and lemon juice can be combined to form a sticky paste. Gently massage it into your face and then wash it off. Do this once or thrice a week.
4. Razor Bumps
Razor bumps are expected for people who shave their legs regularly. As soon as you notice razor bumps, splash them with cold water. After some time, the pores will contract, and the bumps will smooth out. Also, avoid shaving for a time to allow the bumps to heal, and get rid of ingrown hairs, which can be irritating. You should also try aloe vera gel since it is pretty compelling. Finally, shave more effectively, avoiding close shaving, shaving in the direction of hair growth, applying shaving cream, and maintaining razor sharpness.
Hair that has been allowed to dry out too much will tend to stand up in all directions. To prevent dryness and split ends, use a hair product and a hair cream. Use a new toothbrush or an eyebrow brush to swiftly tame those unruly hairs if you don’t have time to wait. Do not apply any pressure; just lightly brush over them. If you are rough on your hair, your hair will end up looking oily and lay flat on your head.
6. Strawberry Legs
Strawberry legs may be avoided with regular cleaning and shaving against the grain. Always switch out your razors often to avoid discomfort and razor bumps. It has been suggested to use Stridex pads when you shave. Put one on each leg, let it sit for a while, and then moisturize.
