Almost every part of your body is full of hair. Did you know the only places that don’t have it are lips, the palm of the hands, and the soles of the feet? While razors are often quick and inexpensive, they're only effective at removing surface hair. This means post-shave stubble may appear faster than we'd like.

Luckily, for those tired of reaching for the razor every time you're in the shower—and those interested in minimizing the risk of those annoying ingrown hairs—there are other ways to keep hair away. From wet/dry shavers to tweezers, beauty expert Veronica Chu is sharing some great products that will easily remove and treat unwanted hair for both women and men. 

Conair Ladies Grooming Wet Dry Shaver

This is a safe and easy way to shave your legs, arms, and bikini lines. This wet and dry shaver features flexible dual foils that effortlessly glide over skin for a skin-loving, silky-smooth finish. Its floating trimmer tracks and hugs the curves of your body to lift and pre-trim longer hairs. It comes with two additional comb guides for your bikini line, and you can use it for up to 30 minutes of continuous use.

Eos Shave Cream 

This product has gone viral, and for good reason. It's a non-foaming shaving cream that gives a soft, smooth, and close shave with every use. Infused with moisturizing shea oil and shea butter, it provides 24 hours of hydration for your legs, underarms, and private areas. It's cruelty and gluten-free and is clinically proven for the bikini line. 

TIP: Use aloe to help with post-shave irritation.

Tweezerman Rose Gold Petite Tweezer Set 

One of Veronica's favourite ways of removing facial hair is with tweezers. They are easy to use without tugging at your skin. This set comes with a slanted tweezer, point tweezer and a brow brush. The petite point tweezer features a precision sharp tip for baby-fine or in-grown hairs.

TIP: Remove your hair in the direction of the growth to remove the hair from the root.
