To get rid of vegetation in the bikini zone or not is a matter of taste. One of the most popular ways for women to remove hair is the epilator for intimate places. However, to select an individual variant of depilation is necessary, given the sensitivity of the skin, the intensity of growth of the hairline and the possible frequency of correction of the achieved result. 70% of girls regularly remove all hair in the bikini zone, 10% do intimate haircuts, leaving a funny face or classic “striped”, and only 20% of ladies prefer the naturalness of smoothness. Gynecologists echo the majority of the beautiful half of humanity: today maintenance of skin care in intimate places is considered a daily hygienic procedure, which is an excellent prevention of diseases such as thrush and vaginitis.
A miniature electric appliance with discs or micro-tweezers pulls the hair together with the bulbs, rotating at high speed. This device for epilation can relatively relieve you of unnecessary hair: overgrown “hemp” begins to appear about five to eight days after the procedure. A big plus: there is no need to “grow” hairs, as required by shugaring or waxing. Significant disadvantage: most girls regularly use an electric epilator causes ingrown hair into the skin. You have to poke them with tweezers before you remove it, and it takes a lot of time.
The first epilators had only one rotation speed of the disks. But, if you use the same speed in intimate places as to remove hair from your legs and underarms, you can just go crazy with pain. Today, manufacturers produce devices not only with several options of pulling intensity, but also special versions of epilators, designed specifically for the bikini zone. Such devices have a floating head, a cooling nozzle for anesthetizing the process, a backlight and an additional pair of discs for simultaneous skin massage. There are even trimmers for hair removal – they can remove hairs on hard-to-reach areas and correct introspective haircut.
Nevertheless, a painless procedure for electrical hair removal is not called. To reduce unpleasant sensations it is possible, correctly having prepared for hair removal. First, take a hot bath to steam out the skin and soften the hairs. Be sure to use a scrub with large polymer particles and fruit acids – this will prevent the further appearance of ingrown hairs. To anesthetize the skin, apply a cream with lidocaine or make several local injections of novocaine. Wait 10-15 minutes and proceed safely. Degrease the bikini zone with a cotton disc dipped in medical alcohol or chlorhexidine. If you drive the epilator over the skin, keeping it at right angles along the line of hair growth back and forth, do not wait for silky smoothness. To get rid of all, even the thinnest and shortest hair, epilate the bikini zone in circular motions.
Shaving is the fastest and least expensive way to depilate the bikini zone. To begin with, buy a quality machine – cheap disposable razors are too traumatic and inconvenient to use. To achieve maximum smoothness and ease the slipping of the razor, use foam or a shaving gel for sensitive skin. Such a preparation contains anti-inflammatory components that prevent itching and irritation. Although, some girls like to shave with usual soap foam – maybe you will like this option. “Dry” shaving will provide you with unpleasant sensations, a large number of cuts and micro-injuries.
In comparison with waxing, shugaring and electroepilation, shaving has a lot of advantages. Firstly, this is a completely painless process. Yes, the hairs grow much faster, but adjusting the bikini zone with a razor does not require a lot of time and no preliminary preparation. Secondly, it is with the help of a razor that you can create unusual drawings on intimate places, ie. to do bikini-haircuts. The machine can be used in the shower, and during shaving you are not limited in movements: you can take a variety of poses and push apart the skin folds to facilitate the glide of the blades.
If you do not want to face the problem of ingrown hair, do not shave them against the coat. Process the bikini zone, moving from top to bottom, according to the direction of hair growth. Let this shaving take a little longer than usual – but you eliminate the risk of ingrownness and reduce the scale of irritation after depilation. When finished with unnecessary vegetation, apply a thick layer of nutritious body cream to the skin. After 10 minutes, blot the bikini area with a tissue paper to remove excess remedy.
The “sweet” method of removing superfluous hairs in the bikini zone was known back in the time of Cleopatra. This is the ideal way to epilation the so-called “deep” bikini. Less painful than electric hair removal and much more effective – that you had hair in intimate places, you will forget for 2-3 weeks minimum. Today, sugar hair removal is done in any beauty salon specially trained master professionals. On the bikini zone you will apply a stretching cosmetic paste, evenly distribute it, and then with a sharp movement will be removed along with the hair. Shugaring is less common than waxing, causing itching, rashes and the appearance of abscesses, since the paste used for epilation has excellent moisturizing and toning properties.
But, on this cosmetic procedure it is possible to save quite well – the mixture for shugaring is easy to prepare yourself, at home. Cooking is better one-time “portions”, which you have enough for exactly one application. Of course, harvested “for future” composition is perfectly stored in the refrigerator. However, if you are new to slouching, you probably will not be able to properly warm up the cold sugar mass or dilute with water if necessary, without spoiling the consistency.
For one sugar epilation of the bikini zone, take a glass of brown sugar, ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice and 3 tablespoons. cold water. Mix the ingredients in an enamel saucepan and put it on a slow fire for 10 minutes. Periodically intensively stir the compound, so that it does not contain inclusions and small lumps. When the sugar starts to “bubble”, make fire less so it does not burn. After 5 minutes, remove the saucepan, immediately pour the mass into a glass or PVC jar and let it cool. After 2-2,5 hours, you can start removing hair.
Take a shower – warm water and gel soften the hair follicles and the upper layers of the skin. Pinch off a warm sugar mixture a slice the size of a walnut. Stretch and roll it between your fingers until it turns into a soft but dense ball. “Roll out” the paste with a strip on the skin and leave for 2-3 minutes. Sharply pull the strip against the hairline. Repeat the procedure enough times. After shugaring, moisturize the skin with lotion or cream. If you do not yet have time to tear sugar from your skin, make it easier for yourself. After applying the sticky mixture on the bikini zone, attach to it a piece of cotton cloth, suitable in size. Now you can use it, like wax strips, sold in stores.
Creams, lotions and depilatory foam
The depilation cream for the bikini area “dissolves” the core of the hair, so it breaks off and is easily removed. The hair bulbs remain completely intact. Unfortunately, they grow quite unevenly and very quickly – the first “bundles” appear already on the second day after the application of the remedy. But this method is considered the most safe and hypoallergenic – of course, provided that you will clearly follow the attached instructions. Otherwise, the risk of earning a chemical burn is high. The composition of depilatory lotions and creams is ammonia, so the hairs with regular application lighten and thin.
In the packaging of the means the manufacturer usually invests a special spatula-spatula. After you cleanse your skin in the shower with soap or gel, apply this spatula cream on the bikini area with a thick layer. Wait 7-10 minutes, then gently remove the cream with the same spatula, wash with warm water and soap and pat dry skin with a towel.
Laser Hair Removal
Let today devices for laser hair removal are sold in free access in shops of cosmetology equipment and on the Internet, but they should not be ordered. This effective method of hair removal with a root requires certain skills from a person, so it is better to visit the salon and trust the professional than to do tests on your own skin at home.
During the procedure, each hair follicle is “burned out” with a laser beam, and completely painless for you. You will feel only heat in the treated area. Agree with the master about laser hair removal in advance – a few days before laser hair removal, he will recommend you to shave the pubic hair. The effect of the laser beam can be applied only to hairs of no more than 6-7 mm in length. The complete “cleansing” of intimate places from unnecessary vegetation will take no more than an hour, and the effect will remain at least 40-50 days. If you have thin and blond hair, after several sessions they can disappear altogether forever.
Do not be scared to see after the visit to the beautician, crusts and redness in the bikini area. To get rid of these effects of epilation, wipe the skin with chlorhexidine 3-4 times a day until they disappear completely. Laser hair removal is categorically contraindicated in case of infectious skin lesions, cancerous tumors, varicose veins and during pregnancy.
Making a choice in favor of this or that method of removing superfluous hair in a zone of bikini, be guided by own sensations. If you are unbearably sick during electrical hair removal, do not suffer the pain – it is much easier to use a razor or a special cream.
