Talking about stomach hair, removing them would be a dread, when you are using razors or trying waxing for the first time. If you are in such a situation, do not panic; just read the article and learn how to get rid of stomach hair.
Ways Of Removing Stomach Hair
Make use of a shaving cream or shaving gel, to shave off your stomach hair. Since your stomach might have curves, shave the hair slowly and in a very gentle manner. To begin with, first smooth out the areas to be shaved, with a creamy product (shaving cream or gel). Now, shave off the stomach hair, moving the razor very gently. Ensure that the razor is sterilized or brand new. After you have shaved off your hair, apply a toner on the shaved portions of your stomach. This would help relax the muscles that had held the hair strands.
Waxing is one of the chosen methods to get rid of stomach hair. Melt the wax up to a certain temperature, which is bearable by the soft skin of your stomach. Keep strips of cloth or tissue nearby. Now, using a steel spatula, apply the hot wax on your stomach, in the direction of hair growth. Place the strip of cloth or tissue on the area and press on it with your hands, gently. After a few seconds, strip off the cloth, opposite hair growth. After the waxing is done, apply toner on your stomach. The stomach hair will not grow for a long time.
Using Hair Removing Cream
Using hair removing cream is a painless way to get rid of stomach hair. Apply a hair removing cream (also called depilatory cream) on your stomach. Using a plastic spatula, smear the cream on the areas on your stomach, where hair has grown. Leave it for few minutes. The hair strands would get dissolved in the cream and would be lifted off from the stomach. Now, wipe off the removed hair with a dry towel. After finishing the process, rinse the area with tap water.
In case you have merely one or two patches of stomach hair, which are small sized, plucking the strands with a pair of sharp tweezers is a nice idea. Before tweezing out the strands, smear the area with an ice cube or apply an antiseptic cream. This would reduce the pain felt by plucking the hair. While tweezing the hair strands, make sure that you do not pull them off too hard.
Laser treatment would remove stomach hair permanently. Although it is costly, the treatment would be the best bet, in case you want to get rid of bushy stomach hair. Many claim that the treatment is not too painful and heals quickly as well. To remove the stomach hair completely, you would have to attend 2 to 6 sessions of the laser treatment.
