7 Hair Removal Mistakes You Don't Want To Make

1. Dry Shaving

Shaving without water can lead to irritation, razor burn, and unequal results. Always apply shaving cream or gel to your epidermis.

2. Dull or Dirty Razors

Using a razor that is dull or filthy can result in nicks, cuts, and ingrown hairs. Replace your razor blades frequently.

3. Shaving Against the Grain

Shaving in the opposite direction of hair growth may result in irritation and ingrown hairs. Always shave in the direction of hair growth.

4. Neglecting Exfoliation

A lack of exfoliation prior to hair removal can lead to congested hair follicles and ingrown hairs.

5. Overlooking Patch Testing

Failure to conduct a patch test prior to using new hair removal products may result in allergic reactions or deleterious skin effects.

6. Ignoring Post-Care

Neglecting aftercare following hair removal can cause irritation and ingrown hairs. 

7. Over-Exfoliating or Over-Treating

Exfoliating or treating the skin excessively can result in dehydration, redness, and sensitivity. 


By avoiding these errors in hair removal, you can achieve smoother, more flawless results and experience hair-free, silky skin.
