Hair growth on our legs is something many of us really find a nuisance, and with so many ways to rid your unwanted hair, how do you know if you’re doing it right?
There are some methods that are great at ridding your hair as a quick fix, but then there are those that do slow down immensely the hair regrowth rate. Some can even permanently rid the legs of hair.
For immediate and quick hair removal, shaving is the best way.
It will take no more than five minutes to shave your legs in the shower or bath, moisturise afterwards and for you to get on with the rest of your day. You’ll have super, smooth legs, but this will only last for a few days.
When it comes to shaving your legs, you should do so towards the end of your shower or bath, so your pores are open and your hair and skin is soft. Dry shaving can be painful and leave your skin extremely irritable.
Finding the right razor is crucial to getting the best shave. Ideally you’ll want one with a pivoting head and one with many razor blades, so it can easily move and reach those tricky areas such as the knee and heel.
Before you start shaving, apply a shaving foam, to help moisturise and make shaving easier. Shave against the hair growth (from ankle upwards), in short strokes. It has been widely misconstrued that shaving in one long stroke is best, but actually it isn’t, and does result in missing hairs.
Once you’re done, rinse away any remaining foam/gel, dry your legs and apply moisturiser, to replenish and hydrate those pins.
If however you are looking to reduce hair growth on your legs, then waxing and epilation is the answer.
Waxing is an age old tradition of hair removal and one that is extremely popular. The thought of not having to deal with unwanted hair for up to a month is heavenly.
Whether you want to do it at home or via a professional at a salon, the choice is yours. Although initially painful, waxing will help reduce the thickness of your hair overtime and reduce its appearance, but it doesn’t permanently stop hair growth alone.
Although the major downside to waxing, are those in between days where the hair isn’t quite long enough to wax but can be seen.
Epilating is another fantastic way to be hair free for longer, and all within the ease of your own home without any mess.
It’s basically an electric tweezer that can extract multiple hairs straight from their hair follicle in one go, on most body parts too.
It also works to sync your hair regrowth cycles into one, lessening the chance of sporadic hairs growing here and there.
Although initially it can feel slightly painful (a stinging feeling), the more times you use it, the less you’ll feel the pain.
You can expect to be hair free for up to six weeks at a time, but this comes in time. You’ll find that you may use your epilator more regularly when you first start, because your hair will still be in their three cycle stage and not synchronised into one. But as time goes on your hair will grow thinner, slower and weaker, meaning less hair.
The added bonus of epilating is that you can use it when your hair length is at a minimum of 0.5mm, so no more embarrassing inbetween days waiting for your hair to grow to be waxed.
It is a great way to achieve hairless legs with no mess or fuss, for longer.
But if you’re wanting your legs to become permanently hair free, then we have the perfect addition to your waxing or epilating regime.
Prevent unwanted hair growth, permanently
Our Frenesies body cream, facial cream and cream for men, work by attacking the hair regrowth process in your hair follicle. The follicle has to have all of its hair completely removed to be able to work, which is why it doesn’t work with shaving as this process is “trimming” the hair off at the surface of the skin.
It’s natural ingredients have been put to their scientific purpose by blocking the amino acids and proteins from working to produce hair. With as little as four cycles of treatment, your hair really could be gone forever.
All you have to do is use our cream straight after epilating or waxing, and to apply it for the following five consecutive days to see a reduction of 60%-80% in hair regrowth.
So what are you waiting for? The moment is now to start your journey to hair free, soft, and smooth legs, that you can show off year round.
At FRÉNÉSIES, and through our joint work with top European scientists and physicians, we have developed an innovative treatment to stop unwanted hair growth and to get you feeling your best.
