Honestly, hair removal is pretty painful (in all senses of the word – it’s both a hassle and often an all-around uncomfortable experience), but hey, if you’re devoted to silky smooth, super soft limbs, it’s just a part of life.
But while you can’t call in the professionals (TBH we never thought we’d miss our waxing technicians but hey,
quarantine is doing crazy things to us), it’s important to ensure your own personal hair removal stash is stocked with all the essentials.
So, we’ve rounded up some of our favourites, from nifty IPL devices to
irritation-soothing oils, bound to make the process (and your skin) a whole lot smoother. RELATED: The best celebrity hair makeovers of 2020 (so far)
