Bare It All: Best Methods For Bikini Hair Removal

When it comes to waxing your nether regions, people tend to be extremely uninformed because it's not a common topic to bring up over dinner. Well, let your guard down because today we will be talking about the three best methods for hair removal. Don't be shy, the topic was going to come up sooner than later. Sit back, relax and take notes while we get tangled in the 411 on the love below.
First things first, growing up we were always taught that hair was there for a purpose -- I guarantee you 90% of people didn't take their health teachers advice. Living in a world where femininity and appearance are literally everything, there's a certain way women want to look and feel. For those who choose to go the natural route and keep warm year round, more power to you. For those women who rather bare it all, let's talk options.
Of course, everyone is familiar with the razor method, better known as shaving. It's convenient and affordable, but razor bumps are never fun. Unfortunately, there's not an app for that, but there are a few ways you can prevent those disturbing visitors. There are specific shaving creams geared towards razor bump prevention, but if that doesn't seem to be your method of choice, aloe vera gel, deodorant (yes, we said deodrant) and Neosporin will fit the bill.
If you're money can stretch a little further, instant hair remover creams also seem to do a good job of removing unwanted hair -- the most popular being Veet and Nair. These specific creams will usually state that they are for sensitive skin. Be forewarned that although these creams are convenient, if used incorrectly you will experience a burning sensation you will literally never forget. These are not meant to be left on for longer than a specific time and if so, be prepared to scream and shed some serious tears.
A more pricier option, but an option that most ladies turn to would be waxing. The word alone sounds painful. Beauty is pain, right? In this case, wrong. When it comes to waxing your lady parts, you have the option of a bikini wax or a Brazilian. In other words, the bikini is a partial wax and the Brazilian is a full wax including your backside -- yikes! Of course, having someone else up in your personal space can be both awkward and weird, but women spend a ton of money monthly on this technique. If you want a clean, smooth surface, suck it up and take the pain like man. Okay, maybe not, but it's worth it in the end.
These three options will have you clean as a naked mole rat (maybe that wasn't the most best comparison), but just know that some options may better than others. They can all be rather painful if not executed properly. Be sure to have your Tylenol handy to help ease the pain. Remember, pain is only temporary.
I thought the Nair and veet bottles said don't use on your bikini area? @onlydreaming @jordanhamilton
really??? i'll have to do some google research
I heard they have a nair that is odorless! I definitely need to get my hands on that one because I agree it definitely stinks. @onlydreaming
i usually always go for nair but i hate the way that it smells and how that smell tends to linger in the room long after you've finished using it.. it can get embarrassing when i'm sharing my bathroom with two other roommates
They have bottles specifically for the bikini area @softballfreak6

3 Skin Products That Have Actually Worked for Me
(image: glossier) Are you tired of buying products and seeing a whopping total of zero results? Same, girl. So today I'm going to share a few products that have actually had a noticeable impact on my skin. (image: mom fabulous) 1. RoC Deep Wrinkle Retinol Correction Holy cow guys. This stuff is absolutely magic in a bottle. Retinol in any dosage higher than this can only come with a perscription because it is incredibly strong. Creams with this product, if the dosage is right, practically erase fine (and not so fine) lines. I attacked my crows feet with this cream and I kid you not, I saw improvement and near-elimination of my deepest wrinkle in one week. One week. The little tube is a little pricey but good God does it work! Warning: I used the Day and Night cream religiously and after a few days I noticed that my skin was rather red. The labels warns that this happens and you skin will get used to it, but it persisted for longer than I liked. I stopped for a week, then went to only using the night cream and I haven't had a problem since. Retinol is a serious chemical so don't over-do it! Get your hands on it here! (image: pop sugar) 2. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment The winter weather is not kind to my lips and there is nothing I hate more than that tight, almost sticky-dry feeling you get when your lips are parched. While drinking water helps, I found that this lip treatment not only moisturized my lips but softened them, slightly lessened the lines on my lips, aaaand just as an added bonus, it tastes delicious. I got the color 'Bloom' which is supposed to work for pretty much all skin tones, but check out their collection and find one that works for you! Get your hands on it here! (image: klairs) 3. Klair's Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask This is so sci-fi it's not even funny. The mask has a quality that no matter how much you use it, it will slide back into its previous shape like memory foam. So every time you open the jar it looks brand new. Because of this, when you put the mask on your face is really squeezes into your skin. When I wake up, my skin is literally glowing. Warning: I only use this once and week because I found that if I used it more than once a week I got a small breakout (gone the next day) on my nose. That could have been related to my time of the month, but I didn't want to risk it again, plus you really don't need to use it that often! Get your hands on it here! What are some products that have ACTUALLY done something noticeable for you?
