Non-Waxing For Guys

It used to be that hair removal was strictly a female thing. Unless you were a bodybuilder, cyclist, swimmer, or male exotic dancer, chances are your body hair remained untouched.

Not so anymore. Experts report that more and more men are opting for the same grooming rights as women - including smooth body skin. Men get more hairy as they get older so body hair removal sometimes becomes more appealing to guys as they get in to their mid thirties and beyond, however men of all ages from twenty onwards regularly use male hair removal services.

"Most men don't necessarily want everything removed, but increasingly they mostly want their back and chest done. At the same time, various media reports suggest that many men are now opting for that longtime staple of female grooming – The Brazilian. But unlike women, for whom hair removal is second nature by junior high school, men often find themselves at a loss for how to deal with excess body hair.

Gents, at All About Skin, here's the lowdown on the most common hair removal options available today for men by men!

Hair Removal or Waxing

Gone are the sticky, gooey, honey-based waxes of the past. In their place are soy waxes, a creamy lotion that's applied to skin, but adheres only to the hair. Strips of specially prepared cloth are layered over the cream. When the mixture dries, in just a few minutes, the cloths are removed (think of pulling off a bandage) and poof! The hair is gone. Waxing is great for larger areas like those pesky shoulders and back. It lasts 4-6 weeks for most men. It hurts a bit, but not nearly as much as you think, plus it’s sharp but short! Different parts of your body have different levels of sensitivity too, like the small of your back or the tops of your pecs nearest the collarbones tend to be more sensitive. Everyone experiences it differently, because every man has a different resistance to what’s happening. Eventually, after 4 to 6 years of constant waxing, the hair will usually stop growing.
