Hair removal creams are a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair for most people, and can be used on any part of the body. In the region of excessive hair growth, hair removal creams consisting of a substance similar to body lotion are applied directly to the skin, and are then wiped away just moments later. While not a permanent hair removal solution, the cream results can last longer than shaving for 4-5 days.

The question most people are asking about hair removal creams is: “how about using hair removal cream longer than prescribed time?”

Hair removal creams are depilatory agents, meaning hair removal happens on the top layer of the skin or above. By fact, hair removal creams consist of chemicals that weaken and remove the hair follicle, much in the same way as cleaning agents remove dirt. Every portion of the follicle that is not fully dissolved will be so damaged by the hair removal cream that simply wiping away the residue with a warm towel would be simple, leaving the skin smooth and free of hair.

The safest way to apply the hair removal cream is to wait until after a hot shower. The steam and hot water release the hair follicle and potentially spread it out past the skin layer than if the hair removal cream was applied to body-temperature skin.

Generally speaking, about the pros of keeping hair removal cream longer than prescribed, apply the hair removal cream liberally to the affected region of the head. Dab the cream onto the skin; do not rub, because rubbing will push the hair removal cream into the skin pores, thereby reducing the cream’s chances of being unduly invasive. Let the cream sit on the packaging for 5-8 minutes, or as directed.

Using a warm washcloth after the allotted time span is finished to remove any traces of the hair removal cream from the skin completely. To cleanse pores, rinse the skin in warm water. You can also step back into the shower when necessary. Stop 2-3 hours of using all other chemicals on the skin, including lotions and makeup.
