REMOVING hair on your arms, legs and private part forms part of good

grooming and will leave your skin feeling smooth and clean.

DISADVANTAGES OF HAVING EXCESS HAIR

¦ Too much body hair can cause you to sweat and have bad odour.

¦ This hair can also clog your pores, causing breakouts.

¦ It can trap dirt and oil, which may later cause infections.

¦ It can also irritate your skin, causing constant itching.

HOW TO REMOVE HAIR

There are many ways to remove unwanted body hair. Choose one that is suitable for you:

¦ Hair removal cream

Apply the hair removal cream to the hairy area and leave it on for a couple of minutes. Remove with a wet sponge or water. Leaving the cream on for too long will burn your skin.

¦ Waxing

This method uses wax strips to pull hair out of the skin. Waxed hair takes longer to grow back as it’s pulled from the root. Do not wax sensitive skin as this can cause irritation and swelling.

¦ Shaving

This is a method where you use a razor with foam, cream or water to remove hair. To avoid infections, don't use old razors when shaving or share your razors with anyone
