Hair Removal For Men

For most men, talking about hair removal can be somewhat of a taboo. Aside from the shaving their face, many men don’t think much of their hair removal habits, and normally have a set routine that they usually do. However, this isn’t always the norm, and there are certainly men who prefer a smooth finish from the chest down. Depending on the area you wish to groom, there are a number of different methods to try, so take a look below to find out what could work for you.

Chest Hair

Symbol of manliness the world over, a chest thick with hair is something many men take pride in. But if the tousled look is not for you, there are different removal methods to try. The often dared challenge of ‘waxing your chest’ can be a bit of a painful option. It offers long term results of up to four weeks, but this may be a daunting commitment if you’ve never tried a hairless chest before. A great short term solution could be using a depilatory cream. This is a great option if you’re looking to avoid the sting of waxing, and, giving you smooth results for up to four days, can be a great way of testing out your new look. The creams work by dissolving the hair follicle, just at the skin’s surface. It can work in as little as three minutes [1], and is easily used in the shower as part of your morning routine.

Underarm Hair

Many men just want to keep their pits in check. This could either be for aesthetic reasons, or just to minimise the fuss, and even reduce the potential smell. Scissors and razors are an option, but they’re a little bit tricky to manoeuvre into place, and could lead to potential nicks and scrapes. Again, depilatory creams can do the job quickly and easily, and will leave your armpits completely hair free, without the risk of cutting the skin.

Back Hair

With increasing age, back hair becomes more of a problem, and you may spot more hairs growing on your shoulder, or above your bottom, as time goes on. Plucking your shoulders is an easy solution, but some areas are harder to reach. Many men may seek out electrolysis treatment at a professional salon which can take care of these hairs for good. However, this can prove to be an expensive option, and as before, you may want to think twice before doing anything permanent. Fortunately, depilatory creams are also suitable for your back. However for those more awkward-to-reach parts of the back, you may want to enlist a helping hand!

Down Below

Like all of the above, the amount of hair you grow normally depends on personal preference, and there’s no end to the discussion of what suits best down below! While certain areas are easier to shave than others (such as just above) we’d recommend an electric trimmer with safeguard to get a precision cut, at whatever length you prefer. If you want to go bald completely, then keep in mind it’s a very sensitive area, so perhaps one best left to the professionals!

Veet Hair Removal Cream for Men

Veet for Men Hair Removal Gel Cream is designed to target hair on the legs, arms, and underarms. It gives quick results, and smooth skin in as little as three minutes. It’s suitable for skin types such as normal, sensitive and dry skin, but be sure not to leave the cream on for longer than six minutes, as this could aggravate the skin. Also, be wary not to apply it to any other part of the body, other than those listed on the instructions, and for more sensitive areas down below, consider some professional help in the matter.

Times are changing, and when it comes to the topic of male hair removal, there are more options out there than ever. If you feel like rejuvenating your grooming routine, why not consider some of the options above for a smooth, irresistible finish?
