Just like you, we miss going to our trusted waxing salon or laser hair removal clinic. Getting rid of unwanted hair is like a form of self-care. While we have to wait a little longer until these places resume operations, there are easy hair removal rituals you can try at home using products now available online. From creams, waxing gels, to safety razors, we curated a list of hair removal products you can choose from. Check them out:
1. Veet Hair Removal Cream
This depilatory cream remains a popular pick for instant hair removal. It comes with a spatula so you can easily spread the cream across the hairy area on the pits, arms, legs, or bikini line. Leave it for six minutes so the cream can work its way to dissolve the hair shaft. Scrape the cream using the spatula, then rinse your skin with water. After that, touch your skin and you’ll definitely feel the silky-smooth finish thanks to the cream’s Lotus milk-enriched formula.

2. Be Kind Eyebrow Hair Remover
If you can't stand the pain of plucking your brows, try this eyebrow hair remover for a pain-free method to remove stray hair and help maintain your brow shape. It has a precision tip that works like an eraser, plus a built-in LED light so you can see brow hair thoroughly. This hair remover is also a good complement if you’re taking a break from eyebrow waxing and threading.

4. Strip It Hair Removal Sugaring Trial Kit
This cold sugar wax is mixed with calamansi extract and honey. Sounds like a yummy treat, right? Not only does it get rid of hair, it also works to exfoliate dead skin cells, to lighten dark spots, and to moisturize skin. You also don't need to heat it before use. Simply get the spatula and reusable waxing cloth included in the kit to start waxing! Then, as your final step, clean up using a damp cloth and maybe apply some aloe vera gel to relax your freshly waxed skin after.

5. Human Nature Natural Shaving Cream
Perfect for all skin types, this natural shaving cream goes well with your razor. It makes sure that your skin is comfy and moisturized before and after shaving. It's free from skin-irritating chemicals and it also helps prevent nicks, cuts, and awkward razor bumps. It's best to use this after exfoliating your skin.

6. Humble Market Metal Safety Razor
Going waste-free? While plastic razors are available here and there, throwing them out after a few uses not only can cost you money, but also add to environmental waste. Consider switching to a safety razor, instead! It's a pretty good investment because you only need to replace stainless blades. You also get a super smooth shave because it evenly cuts hair, lessening the chances of bumps and ingrown hairs as you go.
