Silky Smooth Skin This Summer

Having silky smooth skin is something I wish I had permanently

I have even had sessions of laser hair removal on my legs to try and stop the hair growth

For me personally I am just not a fan of body hair, especially on my legs

Shaving my legs every day, ok well not every day especially in those winter months, really does feel like a chore. In the summer when I like to have my legs on display I would prefer them to be smooth and not stubbly or having a shaving rash

I find it helps with my body confidence when I am hair free

Laser Hair Removal

The cost of having laser hair removal can be expensive. It is also something you need to have a number of times before you get the ‘permanent’ results you want. It also isn’t permanent as such, as there is no guarantee your hair follicles wont ever start growing again

I bought myself an IPL device to use in the comfort of my own home

IPL stands for intense pulsed light. This is the same hair removal technology I had used on me in a salon

The cost of the device was the same as just 1 session so I thought it was worth a try and see. Plus this way I get to use it on those more intimate areas as well rather than just my legs

I have been using it every other week for about 2 months so far and have got fantastic results

I am naturally dark haired and light skinned. This is apparently the most responsive type of body hair for this treatment

In between each use you can not wax, only shave. This is because you are un-doing all the treatment by ripping the treated follicle out if you wax

My biggest issue with treating myself at home is I find it time consuming. Dedicating time to using your IPL can be a bit tedious, but from the results so far it really is worth it

I am looking forward to seeing even longer lasting results over time with my at home device

Let me know your thoughts on body hair. Whether that be on legs or generally

    Body hair can be a useful protection but can be a breeding ground for germs.

    I don’t mind body hair it’s easy to remove I know it comes back quickly but it’s very expensive to remove hair permanently

    Body hair is just annoying. I suffer from polycystic ovaries and it’s just a nightmare. Would love one of these!

    It’s fine in the winter months but come summer, it has to go.

    I would love to have one of these macjines to do IPL at home. I hate shaving and the problem with waxing is you have to let the hair grow back enough for the wax to work.

    I look like a bear! I hate it. It’s dark and obvious. I’d love to be smooth and hair free.

    I try to keep on top of it. In the winter I must admit I neglect my legs a bit. I’m embarrassed by the dark hairs on my chin and over my lips.

    I do not worry too much about body hair, as I’ve got older it is less of a problem, except in one intimate area and the few odd ones on my face.

    I hate it as mine’s quite dark, would love to be able to banish away the hairs!

    I hate it! I have PCOS and dark hair so it’s an ongoing, daily battle. I go for a wax every 6 weeks and get rid of my facial hair every day using tweezers, a shaver and a no7 mirror lol. Such a pain!

    I used to work with a girl that said she didn’t shave her legs in the winter as she needed to keep as warm as possible. As someone who could have been her mother due to my age , she taught me this great tip and yes you do keep warmer. However the other day my husband commented that I have hairyer legs than him!

    I don’t mind it in the winter as I wear jeans all the time, but have to get rid of it in the summer.

    Hate mine, have recently had dermaplaning done and wow what a difference. Peach fuzz has gone (temporarily)

    With my busy lifestyle its difficult to keep it at bay. This would be a fab help!

  26. 10/03/2020 / 20:09

    This looks fantastic. I usually just shave but totally fed up with having to do it

    I find it’s such a hassle now I have a child so I’d love something to make it that bit easier

    The bane of my life! Always hated it and tried many home and salon products. This would be very welcome.

    Due to a long spell of steroid medication, I have a major problem with facial hair on my neck and chin. I hate it and have problems removing it every week.

    In my view, we have body hair to prevent bacteria getting through into our systems, so we shouldn’t get rid of it all, we need some to protect us xx

    I think the removal is a chore we all hate.

    I’d love this to make hair removal easier. I used to rely on razors and recently moved to an electric one to try to avoid ingrown hairs etc. This would be so much better.

    Body hair on men – pretty nice if in moderation. On me, I really hate armpit hair and leg hair and face fluff, so IPL would be fab for me.

    I really don’t like body hair on myself as I have dark hair so you can really see the hair on my arms.

    Hair removal never seems to last that long for me and I tend to have quite dark hair. I would love to give this a go to see what kind of results I get.
