*The warmer weather is finally coming, which means it's time to ditch the jeans and pull out the shorts and skirts. You might even be jetting off with a suitcase full of bikinis instead of outfits. All great for most, but for some of us it can cause a bit of a worry. Sensitive skin and hair removal are two things that don't always get on very well, leaving some people feeling either self conscious or low. Today's post is for those who are looking for tips or product recommendations to help soothe this irritation so that you too can have smooth legs, underarms or bikini line with no irritation, ingrown hairs or shaving rash to show off during the summer.
|Pfft, unachievable perfect legs|
Let's be blunt from the start though - hair removal isn't a necessity. It's okay to go natural if you want to go natural. This post is not about telling you to conform to any certain beauty standards, that goes against what I believe in here on Beautifinous. This post is for those that simply just prefer to remove hair out of personal choice and would like to achieve it without the rash, itching, ingrown hairs or discomfort that can come with it.
It has taken me a long time to find the right products that actually help with shaving irritation, so I hope that for those of you are still searching for a solution manage to find something within this post that may help. Also, if you have any more tips or tricks, please feel free to share them in the comments!
I've split this post into sections to discuss each stage of the process in more detail: pre-hair removal, hair removal and post-hair removal. During each section I'll mention a few of my favourite products, but to make it easier and clearer I will add a list of the mentioned products from each section at the end of said section for you to purchase them if you wish.
Let's dive on in.
