How To Get Rid Of Back Hair

By Subodh / April 22, 2011

When you are a teenager you do not generally think much that when you are older you will have to deal with back hair. However, it is inevitable. It happens to many people.

Sooner or later back hair appears. It could happen as early as in your mid-20s, but it also occurs at much older ages.

Using Depilatory Creams

Using a hair removal cream can help you immensely. It is the depilatory creams that would benefit you in the event you have no money set aside for expensive procedures.

All you need to do is apply the cream to your skin, and right below the dermal surface out comes each piece of hair. You should be careful when undergoing this process, though. If you have sensitive skin you might not be able to handle the burning or irritating sensation.

The best way to find out how you would react is if you test it on a hidden area of your body. You should realize too that this product is not meant for use around the eyes.

In any case, you need to stop using it if it provides allergies or causes skin discoloration. In fact, if you notice any kind of redness, rash, itching, or other reaction stop using it immediately. Furthermore, if necessary you can use Betadine or another anti-bacterial solution to help stop the bad reaction.

It should also be pointed out that using a depilatory cream is not recommended if you have a cut in your skin. It also should not be used if you have a scratch or other deep wound. Alternative solutions might be used instead.

Alternative Solutions

Please read over these sections.It will give you some basic info about different ways of removing hair as needed.

  • Sugaring and waxing-Sugaring and waxing are techniques used to help remove hair anywhere on the body. After waxing or sugaring, the hair that may re-grow on your body in the future will grow finer because this hair removal system pulls hair from out of the skin’s surface.

Sometimes the sugaring method is preferred over the waxing. This is mainly because it does not heat as hot as the wax and thus causes less discomfort.

  • Shaving-If you are looking for a very inexpensive and safe way to remove back hair, shaving is recommended. Of course, the huge disadvantage is that you cannot remove your hair permanently. For best results, you should try a light touch blade.

One precaution you should keep in mind when using this method is that you should not shave your back if it is sunburned. Furthermore, understand that receiving an exfoliation after shaving could strip off too much of the healthy skin. As it is, shaving is a form of exfoliation (dead skin cell removal).

  • Laser hair removal-Laser light passes through your skin to your follicles via this removal method. Using this method of removal does not necessarily guarantee that you can get rid of your back hair immediately. However, even if hair does grow back it might grow back finer and less.
