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.
