painless depilation

Exfoliate your legs before and after depilating 

Exfoliation is the best way to care for the skin on your legs and therefore reduce the chances of painful waxing.

You should use a specific exfoliation product. Try to apply very light pressure, especially if you have some cellulite or a particularly sensitive area, and apply the necessary amount to each part of your leg.

If you have sensitive or delicate skin, exfoliate once a week, but if you have thick or oily skin, it is advisable to exfoliate twice a week, this will help keep it fresh and bright.

The ideal is that it is free of dead cells, which is one of the factors that activate the inflammation in the skin of the legs, and therefore the pain when depilating.

With the exfoliation, we also achieve that if we use blades there are no traces of hair under the skin.


Use anesthetic cream

That can be an excellent option if you have extremely sensitive skin and want to have the painless depilation of your leg hair.

These creams have the effect of momentarily desensitizing the skin (however if you have extremely sensitive skin you may feel some pain).

You should use very little because these creams not only desensitize the epidermis but also to a lesser extent can be absorbed by the body.



We only recommend them if you have very sensitive skin. It is a good idea to go to your family doctor or specialist for a prescription. However, you can get them in some pharmacies without a prescription.

Shave with traditional blades

It is a way to shave your legs without pain and also comfortable and fast. The only problem with depilation with a blade is that it does not weaken the hair because it does not affect the hair follicle (like laser depilation, photo epilation, or waxing).

This way of depilation does not have very long-lasting results but according to the AEDV (Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology), it does not cause the hair to grow stronger.

Finally, we recommend that you use special blades for women, as they do not shave as roughly as male razors.

Never try to use ethyl alcohol after shaving, as it can damage your skin and cause it to crust.

Use electric shavers

Use electric razors

To shave your legs painlessly the ideal would be an electric shaver, which is designed to be able to shave you with the maximum possible perfection.

Electric razors are useful because they help us remove leg hair quickly and automatically. These razors work by cutting the hair, although not from the root like a regular oner.

We will need to shave again after 2 or 3 days. However, although this can become a tedious task, electric razors prevent us from the pain and suffering of other methods.


Use depilatory leg creams

Using depilatory cream is a quick and painless way to remove hair from our legs. Depilatory cream, by not removing the follicle does not cause us any suffering.

These creams act on the hair's keratin, a protein fiber that works as a protective shield against external aggressions. The function of these creams is to break this protein, causing the hair to fall out.

Hot water bath

Hot water is quite pleasant for us, as it relaxes us and benefits the skin, especially in the leg area. You can take it as a kind of beauty and rejuvenating treatment.

It is recommended that we take a hot bath or shower before depilating. According to a study published in 2018, by doing so, the effect of the heat causes the pores to open and our hair removal will be much more effective and painless.

I hope that these tips will help you to have painless depilation and give you the appearance of beautiful, long legs
