Natural Hair Removal
Natural Hair Removal - Go Zero Waste with a safety razor or choose natural sugaring wax
Removing unwanted body hair can be a messy and time-consuming business. There are many hair removal techniques, shaving, dissolving the hair, epilation, laser light, waxing and sugaring.
We have carefully selected products that will help you to avoid ingrown hairs, protect your sensitive skin and make hair removal easy and pleasant to do.
In the Beginning
Shaving is probably where we all started. How many of us picked up a razor in the bathroom as a teenager and shredded our leg or suffered from razor burns? Shaving is a quick way to remove hair and its easily done in the shower or bath.
It tends to need done often as regrowth isnt long in showing.
Preparation is key and the right tools will help you avoid the burn and cuts.
We recommend you use a safety razor. Not only is it better for you but they are better for the environment too.
Shaving oil is a must. It lubricates your skin, ensuring that the blade glides over and only cuts the hair.
Massage your natural shaving oil into your skin where you want to remove the hair.
This is a pre shave treat for your skin. It softens the hair and the essential oil will give you a comfortable shave.
Hold the skin taut and shave in the direction of the hair growth for a good close shave.
The essential oils in the shaving oil will treat your skin and keep it protected even after youve shaved.
Award Winning Hair Removal
We decided to offer you a sugaring system instead of wax as we felt that waxing is best left to the professionals in a spa or salon.
We haven't brought you just any old sugaring system, we have brought you the sugar wax that has been the number one sugaring product in the UK for over 25 years!
Sugar stripease was stocked by the body shop. Sold under their own label, it outsold every other sugaring system in the uk. This natural sugar system has won many industry awards over the years and now we are very proud to be bringing it direct to you.
The ingredients are 100% natural and Vegan. The kit comes with reusable fabric strips and wooden application spatulas.
This sugaring hair removal system is ultra gentle on skin but tough on hair.
This body sugaring paste can be used on the upper lip, bikini area, under arms, legs and arms.
Hair removal strips are included in the kit.
Warm the sugar paste in the microwave for the directed amount of time then apply the sugaring product in the natural direction of hair growth, smooth on the reusable fabric strip and quickly strip it away from the skin.
A quick tip is to check the temperature of the sugar paste on your inner wrist before applying to any sensitive areas.
It shouldn't feel hot, it should be skin temperature.
Because the sugaring products don't adhere to the skin, the chance of reddening or sensitivity is reduced.
Excess sugar paste can be removed by rinsing in warm water. (another advantage over traditional waxing)
Because Sugaring is 100% natural, it is a system that we would recommend for your teens. We know that they will be shaving and attempting hair removal and it's probably best if we as parents, can take the initiative, recognise that they might choose to remove their body hair and show them the safe and responsible ways to do so.
Slow down Hair growth.
No way back
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed light. A course of these laser treatments is recommended for best effect, however it can be expensive.
There are many salons that offer the treatment however there are also at-home laser systems available.
At-home laser hair removal machines aren't as powerful as those available in a hair removal salon however they still offer permanent hair removal.
The bonus to using a home based ipl system is that you can have a treatment when you've got time to spare and you can also buy one between friends/family and split the cost.
The IPL hair removal system works by sending an intense light pulse down the hair shaft into the follicle. It alters the follicle and kills off the cells that are responsible for hair growth.
It is recommended to use in conjunction with a hair minimising lotion (remember we stock laidbare) as the IPL can only target hairs at particular stages of the growth cycle.
If you are going to remove body hair, then choose the method that suits you best.
Give yourself the best tools for the job to ensure safe hair removal.
We haven't mentioned hair removal creams because we know that they are very harsh and the chemicals involved to dissolve the hair, are detrimental to our waterways and oceans.
