The thing is, body hair can be such a nuisance to remove. Some might find it embarrassing to have body hair and that somehow affects their mental health. Body hair is not something to be embarrassed about. After all, we are all human! It is completely normal to have body hair. If you want to feel content after you remove your body hair, it is also completely fine. You do you! But then again, searching for suitable methods for hair removal can be hard, right? The list down below might help you to find the right one!


There are two types of wax which are cold and hot wax. It can be done either on your own which is at the comfort of your home or by a professional at a spa. You need to apply wax on the needed part and then proceed with putting on stripping paper on top of the wax. Let it dry for a few seconds and pull it off quickly. It is quite painful. If you don’t have the skill or it’s your first time doing it, it is better to seek professional help. Waxing is good as it pulls your hair down to the hair follicle, leaving your skin all smooth. The growth of your hair will be slower and thinner than before. There is also a downside for waxing in which it could leave some rashes on your skin.

Skin rashes after waxing


Everyone has their own experiences in shaving. Some might be a good experience, some might be bad. It took a lot of time to shave. Shave does not give many benefits as your hair will start to grow back a few days after. It is because, with shaving, we can only remove the hair on the surface, unlike waxing and depilatory cream. Shaving does not pull your hair until the hair follicles. The downside for shaving would be, it can cause scars or even rashes on your skin if you don’t do it properly.

Itchy, razor burn


Threading usually can last for 2 weeks until the hair starts to grow back. It is quite painful but if you can tolerate pain then it is completely fine. You can even shed a little bit of tear from this method if you are a first-timer. There are only two parts which we can do threading which is on the upper lips and eyebrow. Threading need a lot of skill, technique, and patience as it is quite hard to do. That is why it can only be done on the smaller part. Imagine if you do threading on your whole legs, no one has the patience and time to do threading on that particular body part.

Depilatory creams

Depilatory creams can be prescribed from the clinic. It should be applied once a week in a month, once you started to notice that your hair has grown slower, you can apply it two times in a month. If you consistently apply the cream while following the right rules, your hair won’t grow for 8 months. It is because depilatory cream contains a chemical that will remove your hair until the follicles hair day by day. Some can be applied to particular body parts and some can be applied to all parts, so if you want to buy it, check the label properly. Do a patch test before you decided to wear it. Apply on a small part on your hands for a test. If your skin does not react to the cream, you can go ahead and apply it to the part you desire to do. If you suddenly got rashes and you do not feel much comfortable on your skin, then stop wearing it.

AFT (Advanced Fluorescent Technology) treatment

This treatment is one of the best treatments that can help with your body hair. The hair bulb in the skin will absorb the fluorescent energy. It is better to take a few sessions for the hair to stop growing. Day by day, you will notice that your hair will start to grow thinner and much slower and will be delayed up to one month. After continuous treatment sessions, hair growth will completely stop up to 8 to 12 months. The downside would be you will spend a lot of money but it can also be a good investment for yourself!
