How to Use Hair Removal Cream aka Depilatory

Learn how to use hair removal cream aka depilatory from Completely Bare owner (and former Real Housewife of NYC) Cindy Barshop in this Howcast video.


Hair-removal cream tips is basically, we're talking about a depilatory right now. One of the most important things we need to understand with the depilatory, is that is a chemical going onto your skin, so I have to say test, test, test the product. If you're going to be using hair removal for the legs, the follicle size or the coarseness is going to be different than that of your arms. So no matter where you're using it, make sure you test the product.

A lot of times with the creams, you have to also make sure there's a little bit of a smell with it, so I would suggest to make sure that you do it in an area where you don't want in your whole house. Then afterwards you could wash yourself with some type of lemon, and that will help cut the smell after you use a depilatory.

Also with the depilatories, the newer ones that we're coming out with, like Completely Bare has, is a spray-on. It's not a cream, so therefore you don't have to touch it as much. But the same thing, even with the Completely Bare, you make sure that you test the area that you're doing.
The other thing is a depilatory for the face. It's usually for a finer type of hair. When you bring that home, make sure you test it on a clean skin. Make sure your skin, you're not utilizing any types of glycolics, Retin-A's, or Renovas because you're going to be too sensitive.
