But it doesn't have to be! 

With a little bit of know-how, you can avoid some of the most common hair removal mistakes.

So before you grab your razor or wax strips, read on for 5 hair removal mistakes you might be making—and how to avoid them.

1. Not Exfoliating First

If you don't exfoliate before shaving, you're more likely to end up with razor burn, ingrown hairs, and generally irritated skin.

Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and other debris from the skin's surface, giving you a closer, smoother shave. It also helps to lift trapped hairs, making them easier to remove.

Whether you prefer to use a loofah, body scrub, or even a washcloth, make sure to exfoliate before starting hair removal.

2. Using Old Blades

If you're using old blades when shaving or waxing, you're more likely to experience irritation and inflammation. 

This is because old blades can cause microscopic cuts in the skin, which can lead to infection.

You might not notice it at first, but as time goes on, you'll start to see the effects of using old blades.

So, replace your blades (or wax strips) regularly for a smoother and safer shaving experience.

3. Shaving Too Often 

If you shave too often, you're more likely to experience razor burn or ingrown hairs. That's because shaving weakens your hair follicles, making them more susceptible to irritation.

So how often should you be shaving? Every 3-5 days should be sufficient for most people.

You may need to extend that time frame even further if you have very sensitive skin.

4. Shaving Dry Skin 

We all know that shaving cream is vital for preventing nicks and cuts, but did you know it also helps hydrate your skin?

Shaving dry skin can cause razor burns, so always shave with plenty of moisture. You can use traditional shaving cream, conditioner, body oil—whatever works best for your skin type.

Just be sure to avoid soap, which can dry out your skin even further.

5. Not Caring for Your Skin After Hair Removal

It's essential to care for your skin after hair removal, whether using a soothing lotion or applying a cold compress to reduce inflammation.

If you don't take care of your skin after hair removal, you may experience dryness, itchiness, redness, or even infection. So make sure you give your skin some TLC after your next hair removal session!
