Finding ways to take care of unwanted hair at home can save you from having to go to someone else to have it dealt with, often saving you time and money — not to mention embarrassment. You can deal with unwanted hair in any part of your body without using any kind of harsh chemicals or painful treatments, with the following some of the simplest and most effective methods.

Pluck it

Whether you are a young woman or an older man, tweezers are the simplest piece of hair removal equipment available, as well as an extremely effective way to deal with unwanted hair. Though it can be time consuming, it will last far longer than many other hair removal methods. Plucking is also often the most efficient way to deal with hairs that pop up in unusual and embarrassing places.

Waxing at home

Waxing is a fantastic way to remove hair a little more permanently, and you can make your own wax with just a few simple ingredients. Add 1 cup of brown sugar, ¼ cup of water, ¼ cup of lemon zest and ¼ cup of honey to a saucepan and heat over a low setting. Once the sugar has totally melted and the mixture resembles a sticky brown paste, remove it from the heat. Dust the area you want to wax with cornstarch once your wax mixture has cooled slightly, and then apply it to the desired area, painting it in the direction of the hair growth. Place a strip of fabric over the wax as soon as it is painted on, and wait for three to five minutes for the wax to cool, then pull off the fabric quickly, pulling against the direction of hair growth. If you have any leftover wax, store it in the fridge for future use.


Shaving can be a fantastic way to remove unwanted hair at home, especially if you are a man dealing with hair on your face, or a woman dealing with hair on your legs. Though make sure that you are as gentle as possible with your skin when shaving by using lots of shaving cream or gel, and by taking long, light strokes with a nice sharp razor. The more frequently you shave the easier it will be, so if you plan on being hair free for a while to come, stay on top of your hair and shave daily.

Take it slow

Whether you are using tweezers or laser machines, it is always advised that you take it in stages, and allow plenty of time for your skin to recover from your hair removal efforts. Hair removal can be extremely hard on your skin, so be nice to yours if you want it to be looking fantastic.

If you are a more private type of person who prefers to take care of your own hair removal issues at home, there are plenty of options for you, so don’t spend another day with unwanted hair, and take care of it yourself, tonight!
