The Use of Hair Removal Cream

Hair removal cream has been a trusted method of getting rid of unwanted hair since 1940! – It is inexpensive, easy to use and the thing that sets this method aside from everything else is the fact that it is absolutely painless!

The cream itself is made up of chemical components which magically make unwanted hair disappear after being left on the skin for a short period of time. On a more serious note; the chemical components which are often used in the creams that demolish the hair are potassium or calcium thioglycolate, keratins, and sodium.

Choose the cream depending on the area you intend to use it for as there are creams intended for different areas of the body, sensitive skin areas, for coarse hair and even hypo-allergic (super-sensitive).

The best hair removal creams (see here: available today are enriched with ingredients such as oils and extracts of herbs and vitamins that nourish and hydrate the skin after the procedure.

  1. Apply an even, thick layer of the hair removal cream to the area, either with a spatula or with finger tips (ideally use disposable gloves). Do NOT rub in! – Just spread it. It should be applied with care – The cream contains a large amount of chemical components which could cause irritation to the skin. If you didn’t use gloves; wash your hands immediately afterward.
  2. Leave the cream on your skin for the recommended time on the instructions. This will range from 3-10 minutes. Do NOT exceed the time limit.
  3. Remove a small amount of cream half way through the recommended time limit to see if your hair has already reacted as this is a possibility. The less amount of time the cream is left on your skin, the less likely you are to have an irritation. If it hasn’t reacted then leave it on.
  4. Wipe the cream off with a damp cloth or a spatula if provided. Rinse the area with warm water, ensuring all the cream has been removed.
