Gone are the days when the hair removal activity was only female focused. But, not anymore! We live in times when men have started preferring a smooth and hair-free body. Some men, however, don’t like a complete hair removal tactic. Instead, they prefer having a thinned out body hair.

The internet is flooded with plenty of articles that mention varied pain-free tactics to remove unwanted hair for women. However, very few articles talk about ways of removing body hair in men. That’s why we have brought forward for you a very well researched article focusing on tactics to eliminate unwanted hair from a male body.

Here are mentioned 5 of the most common pain-free tactics to remove unwanted hair for men:

1. Shaving

Shaving is irrefutably the most common and widespread method of hair removal for men. It is quite easy and painless, and you can use the razor to eliminate hair from whichever part of your body, provided you employ the right techniques. Remember to shower with warm water before using the razor. A shower will help in opening of pores and in raising hair follicles. Besides, also make sure that you use a good quality razor and shaving foam. Lastly, shave only in the direction of hair growth.

Some people think that shaving makes the hair grow thicker; however, this is just a myth. As a matter of fact, shaving works best for men with light or fine hair, and a sharp blade will make a world of a difference when it comes to shaving quality and comfort. Yes, it is true that shaving sometimes causes skin irritation. But, there are ways to eliminate and reduce these irritations.

For instance, you can invest in a sensitive shaving cream that will help prevent shaving irritations. Also, use a baby powder instead of a moisturizer post shaving. The good news is that your skin will eventually get used to shaving and won’t thereafter cause any kind of irritation.

2. Applying Hair Removal Creams

Hair removal creams do a pretty good job in removing unneeded hair easily and quickly, without causing much drama and pain. Keep in mind that you do a patch test before trying any hair removal cream in order to avoid skin irritations and other harsh reactions. For best results, check the market to find a hair removal cream which suits you best. Dermology hair removal cream is one such peculiar cream that is known to produce results. Regardless of what cream you use, make sure you use a cream that is safe for use on any body part and should not create side-effects.

It is imperative to check with a dermatologist before you start applying these hair removal creams. Test your skin and research the creams in depth prior to relying on them. You may want to wait for a day or so to see how your skin reacts to the cream. Also, take precautionary measures prior to applying these creams on genital areas. Make sure you trim the area first and then apply the cream.  Hair removal creams usually get the job of eliminating hair done well.

3. Waxing

You can never go wrong with waxing. It is indeed the most preferred way of removing unwanted hair from a man’s body. Most people, and particularly men, think of waxing whenever they think of hair removal tactics.

Waxing is usually linked to pain as the process involves snatching of hair from the root of the skin. But the truth is, the pain associated with waxing isn’t unbearable at all.

Lastly, if nothing works, you can always fix a waxing appointment at a salon and get the job done. Or for some parts it can be done by yourself.

Besides, it is also mandatory to ensure that you get a laser hair removal done from a qualified professional with experience. The results can be quite disastrous, if done from a naive and uninformed specialist.

In this technique, the laser light will penetrate into the hair shaft and kill the roots of the skin. This, however, will not kill the hair follicles. For this very reason, you may see your hair growing back at the same place, but after a very long time. This technique is popular for removing chest-hair, hair on the back, and genital area hair. It is believed that a laser hair removal technique works best for men with dark hair, but the results are usually dependent on many factors such as one’s hair growth rate and other similar aspects. Therefore, it is best to consult a dermatologist who will guide you professionally.
