Men Home > 4 Sure-Fire Ways a Man Can Get Rid of Excess Body Hair

Other Methods

In this article, we've discussed four of the mainstream ways to remove body hair. However, you might want to consider other options. For instance, plucking works great for small areas of the body (like eyebrows). Depilatory creams or gels, which chemically dissolve the hair, can also work well, especially for men without sensitive skin. Epilators, which are essentially small devices capable of plucking several hairs at once, can work well, but as you might imagine, they typically hurt.
 
Don't know where to start? Consider asking for help. Talk with your hair stylist, your dermatologist, your doctor, and even your wife or girlfriend (who likely has decades of body hair removal experience). Yes, it's a private issue, but many people are happy to share their knowledge, and virtually everyone has some experience with hair removal.
