Hair Removal Cream that wont cause breakouts

Recommended Posts

I used nair to get rid of some body hair. It worked well but I was a bit red and itchy afterwards. A few days later I began getting inflammed pimples where I had removed the hair. Its taken a while to get under control.

Does anyone know of a hair removal cream that wont cause breakouts? any help would be good.

I don't think the issue is the hair removal cream itself, but the fact that it destroys the hair at and usually under the level of the skin... which is just asking for ingrown hairs and follicullitis. In general I've found that strong AHA and BHA preparations can prevent the breakouts, especially if used with an antibacterial that targets Staphylococcus aureus, like tea tree oil or neosporin (not BP).

But in general I think you're out of luck :(
