It’s that time of year when you want to de-fuzz for a Summer-ready body as quickly, cheaply and of course, painlessly as possible! Grabbing your disposable razor isn’t always the best option for your skin. The most effective methods depend on your time frame, hair growth and pain threshold.
At Magnitone our mission is to create products which work with your skin’s natural processes to leave it beautifully conditioned and our hair-removal products have been created with that in mind.
First things first, always prepare your skin before any type of hair removal. Here’s our ultimate guide to prepping for hair removal:
Exfoliating your skin doesn’t only keep it looking young and healthy, but it removes dead skin cells from around the hair shaft making it easier to remove the hair and most importantly helps to prevent ingrown hairs.
Make sure skin is clean and free from any moisturiser as the oils will make the hair slippery and prevent a good grip from removing the hair.
Always Test Your Skin!
It is always a good idea to test any new products or hair-removal methods on your skin prior to using on a larger area. This ensures there are no localised skin reactions.
So, what do we recommend as the most efficient, quick and easy methods of hair removal?
If you’re in a rush and need to defuzz quickly in the morning, then this is the method for you. The good news is you don’t need to wait for optimum hair growth, you can shave on any length hair meaning you can be hair-free every day and not have to cover-up on those regrowth days.
GoBare rechargeable mini lady shaver is designed as a 2 in 1 trimming and shaving device which can be used wet or dry for silky smooth skin! GoBare has a SkinSoft floating head which tilts and contours to your skin for a more comfortable and close shave.
It is USB chargeable – but with just 2 hours of charging for 100 minutes of use, you won’t need to worry about recharging very often! It is waterproof and small enough to fit in your washbag so perfect for travelling.
After shaving always apply moisturiser to the area to calm skin and prevent drying.
Epilating is a less common method of hair removal to shaving or waxing, but those that have tried it swear by it, and for good reason! Epilators remove hair from the root in a plucking movement, so it is effective at grabbing onto even the shortest of hairs.
If shaving isn’t your thing and waxing is too much of a drag, it is definitely worth trying a Superglide Epilator like PluckIt.
This clever device can be a real money-saver in the long run (no more waxing) and gives seriously smooth results!
PluckIt is a handy, mini Epilator that glides over the skin with 32 smooth, tweezing discs which spin around and quickly remove hair from the root. PluckIt is compact enough of it in your wash bag and perfectly in the palm of your hand, so it is a must-have for quick hair-removal, even when travelling.
PluckIt, like all of Magnitone’s products is UBS chargeable and contains BioMaster Antibacterial Skin Protection for more healthy hair removal. There are two settings so you can start off gently and increase the speed as you get more confident.
To Epilate, pull your skin taut and use against the direction of your natural hair growth. Epilating is best done on shorter hair and in the evening before bed to ensure any slight redness has gone before morning.
Can be used on legs, underarms, arms, bikini area and even face!
