Good luck! ...Read more

Can a woman use bleach on her face and hair removal cream on her arms during ist trimester of pregnancy?

Okay But Why: It is most likely safe to do both of those but there could be some absorbtion of the cream and depending on the ingredients could possibly have some detrimental effect on the baby. Let's put it this way- if something were to happen to the baby, even if it had nothing to do with the cream, you will probably always beat yourself up for it, thinking you were to blame. Why take the risk? ...Read more

Can I use hair removal cream around my genital area , i'm a female. Is there a specific cream for that area?

Can I use hair removal cream around my genital area , i'm a female. Is there a specific cream for that area?

No: The skin in the pubic area is too delicate. If you use the normal hair remover cream or wax, it may cause serious irritation and pain increasing the risk of skin infection. There are specialized products for that area. Better yet, have it waxed by at a salon/spa. They can do a better job, have the right products, and can take care of any irritation that may develop. ...Read more

As : As you know by now these hair removal creams are much too strong for the delicate skin of the genitals, especially the scrotum. If you are still in pain, or for anyone with a similar problem, advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) are good choices. There is also a spray called dermoplast that can be purchased over the counter. This may help. If the area becomes swollen, hot, or you develop a fever please see a doctor. All the best. ...Read more

Is electrolysis hair removal on the face safe during pregnancy?

What is better: shaving or hair removal cream?

Cream, but...: Depilatory creams dissolve hairs so that they wipe away. The hair left behind is usually softer than if it had been shaved. Razors cut hair at an angle, making the regrowth look thicker & more likely to develop ingrown hairs & razor bumps. The major downside to the creams is potential irritation & you need to use caution near the mucosa (mouth, vagina). Electric razors are a good option, too. ...Read more
