Risks of Using Hair Removing Creams

Soft and smooth skin is desirable and most women want easy and painless ways to rid their body of hair. Hair removal creams are a quick solution to this problem yet they are not as wholesome as the adverts portray them to be. Here are 4 risks of using hair removal creams that you need to be wary of:

Irritated Skin

Hair removal creams are harsh on sensitive skin, especially the kind prone to irritation. The formulation has a harsher PH level than is suited to human skin. Wearing them for longer than the listed time wreaks havoc on the PH balance of the skin that naturally ranges from 5.5 to 5.6.

The kin is likely to take some damage after use, resulting in dryness. Some people also report sensations like tingling, itching and excessively dehydrated skin that lasts for a few hours to up to a few days.

Skin Burns

Depilatory cream dangers are not limited to skin irritation alone. The formulation of depilatory creams consists of highly alkaline ingredients to dissolve hair proteins and amino acids.  

Skin also holds similar types of amino acids hence why burns are likely side effects of using hair removal creams. Some people report burning sensations and scarring on the skin due to the chemical reaction, especially when you exceed the wear time.

Chemical and Allergic Reaction

Allergic reactions are common dangers of hair removing creams, as some people are naturally allergic to harsh ingredients. Most depilatory creams include alkaline ingredients like potassium thioglycolate, calcium thioglycolate, and strontium sulfide.

These ingredients are strong and take up to two days to show a reaction on the skin. If your skin reacts wildly to alkaline and chemical ingredients, then always carry out an allergy test to keep your skin smooth and safe.

Skin Cell Damage

Hair removal creams strip the skin of natural moisture and oils, resulting is dry and patchy skin. Parched skin needs time and care to recover yet hair grows back quickly hence requiring frequent applications.

This overuse is likely to damage the skin cells, steal the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Dry and damaged skin is likely to suffer from untimely wrinkles and early signs of aging.
