Here, how to smooth things out safely—at home.
New, improved technology allows women with dark hair on their bodies to safely eliminate that unwanted fuzz with an at-home laser.
Because hair on limbs decreases with age, less aggressive modes of removal, such as an in-shower depilatory, are useful options.
Strip-free kits keep things simple for at-home waxers. How they work: Wax hardens on the skin, and then you pull it off, along with unwanted hair.
To erase face hair (a side effect of aging), you may like the efficiency of a facial depilatory.

Got skin that’s becoming increasingly sensitive? Choose a razor with three or more blades; it will give you a close, chafe-free shave.
If regular waxing inflames your skin, a sugar-based remover may be your solution. It sticks to skin less than wax does, reducing the risk of irritation.
