This stuff has come a long way since it first became a thing. One of the initial hair removal cream formulas back in the 1500s involved a concoction of quicklime and arsenic, but today’s are much safer (thank god), not to mention more effective. While methods like waxing can be a pain — literally! — using a hair removal cream is pretty fuss-free and actually lasts a long time. Once you apply the cream to your skin, the chemicals dissolve your hair right below the surface, turning it into a sludge you can wipe right off your body. Afterward, your skin stays hair-free for up to four weeks, depending on the product .
Now that you know the ins and outs of hair removal creams, it’s time to figure out which product is best for your needs. One plus about buying these products in 2017 is that the companies have worked hard over the years to ensure they not only smell much better than the ones you remember seeing years ago, but also make them much easier to apply. And because of the addition of moisturizers and other buffers into the ingredient list, they’re not nearly as harsh as they used to be, making it easy for you to remove your hair worry-free.
One thing to note, though, is since you’re dealing with chemicals, it’s always a good idea to do a patch test to see if you’ll have a bad reaction to the formula. Some people might be especially sensitive to the ingredients used in the creams, so try it out on a small section of your body — like part of your arm or leg — before using it all over. It’s also a good idea to pay special attention to the directions: some creams are specifically made for your chest and back, while others are safe to use on more sensitive areas.
