Body hair removal for men is something that’s becoming more acceptable, and male waxing or ‘manscaping’ has grown in popularity over recent years. To find out what body areas to wax, simply read on.
Chest hair removal is something you can do at home if you wish. It’s relatively easy and there are no awkward nooks and crannies to try and reach. But should you wax your chest in the first place? Well, if you’re uncomfortable with the thickness of your chest hair, regular waxing helps it grow back thinner than shaving. Word of warning, be sure avoid the nipple and the area around it. Believe me, it’s not the most pleasant.
Men’s back hair removal is pretty much the same as chest waxing. If you’re wondering how to get rid of back hair, well, it’s a large open space with zero awkward bits, so it’s quite possible this could be another at-home escapade if you’re looking to save a bit of cash. You will, however, need that partner or friend mentioned earlier to help with some areas, as it’s pretty impossible for arms to be that flexible.
Back, Sack and Crack Waxing / Genital Waxing
Intimate waxing isn’t just for women. As far as we’re concerned, a back, sack and crack wax is not something you should really attempt at home if you want your bits to remain intact. Intimate waxing is gaining massively in popularity, and men are now becoming just as concerned with their nether region fluff as women are.
Ranging between anything from a simple buttocks or ‘crack’ wax, to the pubic triangle ‘men’s Brazilian’, a ‘male bikini wax’, and the sack and penis. If you want things tidy but the idea of ‘scrotum waxing’ sounds a little terrifying or at least something that’s not worth the hassle, then, well just stick to shaving.
Before attending a waxing salon to manscape your body, here are some important tips to remember;
- Do not moisturise within 24 hours of your planned wax.
- Always test the temperature of the wax on your wrist.
- Make sure the hair is the right length before attempting to wax; too long or too short won’t cut it.
- Pull wax off in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
- Once complete use a hydrating product on the skin such a baby oil or aftershave moisturiser.
