Best Alternatives to Razors for Hair Removal

Checkout these Alternatives to Razors for Hair Removal. Get silky smooth permenantly and cheaper in the long term.

Since summer is coming up, it means the razors have to come out right? To sort out those hairy legs? Shaving can be so tedious and if you have sensitive skin, razors can cause irritation and those annoying little red bumps!

While razors are quick and cheap, there are tons of different alternatives that will have your legs feeling silky smooth in no time! Here are a few common alternatives to razors:

Best Alternatives to Razors

Hair Removal Razor Alternative #1: An Epilator 

An Epilator is a battery-powered device that removes hair straight from the roots. An Epilator removes hair similar to waxing, but without actually using wax. As you move the device over your body, it plucks the hair away. You can purchase a Wet or Dry Epilator, so if you need to quickly shave before going out but don’t want that awful razor rash, this one is great. An epilator can take a bit of getting used to. Some people say the first time you use it, it can be a bit uncomfortable but you do get used to it over time. It is recommended that you exfoliator prior to using an epilator. Best to use an Epilator at night, so if you have any initial reaction the first time you use it, it will be gone by the morning. Most Epilators will have speed settings, but the slower the setting the more precise the epilator will work at removing hairs.

Hair Removal Razor Alternative #2: IPL Treatment 

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light It’s a great therapy to get rid of unwanted hair, but it also has other benefits! It’s also used to treat wrinkled and unwanted spots too! Basically, IPL treatments are the closest at-home laser treatments on the market. What IPL does is it focuses light with different wavelengths similar to a camera flash. The light wavelengths generate heat that will burn the growth cells in the hair. It’s gentle on the skin and will cause less damage than what a laser could do. Most at-home IPL treatments can be used anywhere on your body, even your face!

NOTE: IPL isn’t always effective for people with light colored hairs (Blonde), it’s best suited for those with darker hair.
