Shoulders, Back, Arms, Hands, Tummy -

Waxing, sugaring, depilatories. Waxing or Sugaring is thebest method for all these areas. Taking a shower directlyafter waxing the back helps eliminate the possibility ofacne breakouts and skin redness.

Do notapply deodorants or antiperspirants right after shaving asthis can cause acute irritation and soreness. Waxing or sugaring are also safe.

Do not use depilatories to avoid the risk of chemical burnson the sensitive skin in this area.

Depilatories should not be used as they canresult in serious damage. Shaving produces stubble whichmaycause irritation as the sides chafe and rub together. Waxingor sugaring are the best methods.

Legs, Feet, Toes -

Shaving the legs is popular but the hair grows back after ashort time. Waxing or sugaring are preferred although you have to waituntil there is about a quarter of an inch of growth.
