5 Interesting Facts About Depilation

Shaving is one of the aesthetic rituals that almost everyone does regularly, no matter if you’re young or old, male or female, low-maintenance or a beauty enthusiast. But it can often not be the most pleasurable of regimes, causing razor burn and nicks and cuts.

Body hair removal is totally your choice, whether it’s legs, facial peach fuzz, or your bikini area, and there are several methods of hair removal at your disposal, including shaving, creams, epilator, waxing, and laser hair removal.

We have some facts about depilation for you.

The Procedure Became Easier In The 1800s

The first mass-produced depilatory creams were produced in the 1840s. It was called Poudre Subtile and produced by Dr T. Felix Gourand (a fictitious name!), but it did cause skin problems if left on for too long.

In 1901, Gillette patented the first disposable razor for men, and in 1915, the firm released the Milady Decolette, a razor design for women.

Waxing Was Revived In The ’60s

Waxing is thousands of years old and was revived in the 1960s with the invention of wax strips.

Waxing At That Time Of The Month Is More Painful

The increased hormones in your body in the days leading up to your period makes your skin very sensitive, which will make waxing more painful than usual.

Most People Improperly Store Their Razor Blade

Many people tend to leave their razors in the shower. However, the damp atmosphere will cause the blade to rust quicker and become a breeding ground for bacteria. Make an effort to keep your razor clean and in a dry area.

Ingrown Hairs

Both waxing and shaving can cause ingrowing hairs, so to help protect your skin, always exfoliate first to help remove dead skin.
