The development of personal care products that remove unwanted hair from the face and body was motivated by concerns about hygiene and appearance that were intertwined. Removing body hair prevented infestations of lice and other parasites, particularly in situations where living quarters were cramped and bathing facilities were scarce. Hair can also harbor bacteria and odors due to its ability to trap perspiration.
The earliest reports of shaving off body hair date back to the Mediterranean and Orient, where women combined water, starch, quicklime, and arsenic sulphide to create a paste-like depilatory between 4000 and 3000 B.C.
Egyptian women used tweezers (made from seashells), pumice stones, or early beeswax and sugar-based waxes to remove all of their body hair, including the hair on their heads. Although they may have been the first to adopt several beauty routines, they spent the most time on hair removal.
In the Roman Empire, having no body hair was seen as a sign of social class; wealthy men and women would use razors made of flints, tweezers, creams, and stones to trim off unwanted hair; in fact, pubic hair was seen as uncivilized, which explains why many well-known statues and paintings of Grecian women show them without hair.
A more refined approach of hair removal was introduced in the late eighteenth century; although European and American women gave it little thought, French barber Jean Jacques Perret's invention of the straight razor for men in 1760 led to its use by certain women.
Types of hair removal methods
Unwanted hair can be found on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, back, legs, fingers, feet, and toes. It can be removed in a number of ways, but most of them will eventually cause part of the hair to grow back.

exfoliation keeps dead skin cells from clogging the hair shaft and permits new hair to grow. Regular hair removal stresses the skin and removes moisture and oil. It is crucial to apply a good layer of cream to the skin after disinfecting. Our tip: choose a body lotion that contains soothing ingredients like camomile or panthenol. The skin is particularly delicate in the armpits and dries out quickly or begins to itch as a result.
