In this episode of How To Look Good Naked, Gok Wan battles to convert his latest Gokette to ban the bristle! With the help of his beauty experts, he discusses the latest hair removal options.
If it’s your first time waxing, lessen the pain by trimming your hairs down to a couple of centimetres, and don’t pamper before your period as skin is too sensitive. Tea tree oil is also a great skin soother.
Often the beauty expert’s choice, epilators are much less painful than they used to be. It’s less messy than home waxing and works with the same principle, ripping the hairs out at the root. Hair takes 5 weeks to grow back.
Shaving is a quick, popular, cheap and easy option of hair removal. Go for a razor with a buzzing mechanism – the vibrations pull the skin taught so that more of the hair pokes through, so you can cut it off at a lower point.
Always buff your body with a dry flannel in a circular motion, forcing the hair to grow out straight and not curling up and getting trapped under the skin.
