Hair removal by shaving

There is a slight risk of irritation, ingrown hairs and red bumps – especially around the bikini line. Therefore, it is important that you remember to use a shaving cream that moisturizes the skin and reduces irritation.

Since the hair is removed at its root, it takes longer for the hairs to grow out than by shaving for an example. Wax can be used all over the body and even on the face. It is also rather quick.
