With wax

One of the most effective hair removal methods is waxing. If you want to remove arm hair you can do this with cold, warm or hot wax, either by yourself at home or go to a beauty salon.

Make sure that you take care of your skin and remember that waxing is very aggressive on the skin, so before using wax it is a good idea to see a specialist to check if your skin is too sensitive for this method of hair removal. Moreover, remember to peel the wax in the opposite direction of hair growth.

With hair removal cream

Another method you can use to remove arm hair is hair removal cream. This method is not too invasive and works well to remove the finer hair on your body. Hair removal cream tends to be used on areas such as the upper lip or chin as it works perfectly even on fine hair. If your arm hair is coarse, it's not recommended to use hair removal cream as it will not have the desired result.

In order to use hair removal cream, wash the area well and dry thoroughly. Then all you have to do is apply the cream on your arm and leave it on for 5 or 10 minutes (the exact length of time will depend on the brand of cream that you have bought, therefore, it is important to read the instruction on the package).

Afterwards, wash your arms well with plenty of warm water and your arms will be completely hair-free. Remember, this hair removal method does not eliminate the root of the hair, it only weakens it. Therefore you will need to use the cream more frequently than you would use wax: approximately every 2 or 3 weeks.

With an electric epilator

An electric epilator is also a good way to remove arm hair because it removes the hair at the root making it as effective as waxing and you can use it any time of the day from your own home.

To use an electric epilator to remove hair it is essential that the hair is long enough for the epilator to catch the hair and pull it out by the root.

To reduce the pain of epilation, we recommend you follow this advice before attempting to remove hair arm:

  • Put a bag of ice on the area you are going to epilate to numb the skin.
  • Have a hot bath to open the pores and make it easier to extract the hair roots.
  • Exfoliate your arms before epilating to get rid of any dead skin.

With laser

The most effective method of removing arm hair is through laser hair removal treatments. It is one of the most innovative methods as far as hair removal is concerned and in just a few sessions you can remove this annoying bodily without any trouble.

Removing arm hair with laser treatments can be the perfect option for people who have coarse hair and who have been let down by other methods. Remember the price of laser hair removal is higher than the other methods but the results speak for themselves.

However, this method will not last forever, though you'll have hair-free arms for years.

The alternative to get rid of arm hair forever is Electrolyisis. This is a long process that will last for several months but the result is permanent.
