9 Chemical-Free Methods of Hair Removal You Can Do at Home

Hair removal is tricky, and not just because it can be extremely painful (ask someone who just experienced their first bikini wax, and they'll tell you). Some methods can cause irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin. I have heard multiple horror stories of people who tested out a new hair removal cream and ended up with a gnarly rash at worst or red, burning, and tender skin at best. No one wants that possibility looming over their head when it comes to hair removal, which is why so many have turned to natural products—or at least those that don't involve potent synthetic chemicals coming into contact with the skin. Whether that means a natural sugar wax, an epilator, or a laser, there are plenty of at-home options. You just have to find the one that works best for you.
