For many ladies, having body and facial hair can make us lose our confidence. There will be occasions when we may want to don a stunning party dress, enjoy ourselves at the beach, or simply look presentable and elegant at a special event. During such occasions, we may want silky, velvety-soft skin to complete the look.
There are many reasons why IPL hair removal treatment in Singapore is increasingly sought after. Achieving smooth, hair-free skin is just one of these many reasons. While body hair is natural and choosing to remove it is a personal decision, it is always helpful to have the option of painless, easy hair removal whenever you need it.
Here are some ways to achieve smooth and glowy skin as you work towards being the most confident version of yourself!
If you are a frequent shaver, you may already know that exfoliation is the secret to baby smooth skin. Before shaving, prepare your skin by exfoliating gently to scrub away dead skin cells on the surface. This way, your razor will be able to glide with ease to nick away all the unwanted, pesky body hairs.
Regular exfoliation will also help your hair follicles grow back easily, preventing ingrown hairs and the discomfort that accompanies them. You can exfoliate your skin with a store-bought exfoliating scrub or brushes and sponges, or you can even make your own homemade scrubs with sugar and coconut oil.
Our skin sheds dead skin cells every two weeks, so keeping up with exfoliation will help you achieve an instant glow after removing the gunk. It also helps your skincare products penetrate your skin without additional barriers!
Stay hydrated and moisturised
Our skin cells love water, so staying hydrated is one of the best ways to keep your skin soft and supple. You should also avoid harsh and abrasive chemicals in your skincare products that may irritate your skin.
Our skin responds to irritation and abrasion by sending extra blood up to the surface to speed up the healing process. The resultant redness may be blotchy and uneven, stopping you from achieving the smooth glow you have always wanted. This is why beauty experts and dermatologists emphasise the importance of moisturising after a waxing or shaving session.
One popular way to reduce redness is applying a soothing cream or lotion, or even aloe vera gel. These products have moisturising and cooling properties to reduce inflammation and restore your skin’s vibrant glow.
Choose the right hair removal method
Sometimes, you may just want to avoid redness and irritation altogether. SHR treatment is one of the most popular methods for semi-permanent hair removal in Singapore for this reason. Aside from achieving faster and better results, SHR hair removal is also less painful than shaving and waxing. SHR is a superior technology that operates similarly to IPL but is much gentler to the skin. SHR treatment also delivers longer-lasting results within a shorter period, as it directly targets the hair follicles instead of the melanin pigment.
