Abstract

昨今,若い女性たちの腕や脚に乾燥した状態が目立っているが,これはムダ毛の手入れと非常に関係が深い。本研究では,一般女性19名の腕,脚,腋の肌の状態を調査するとともに,電動脱毛器3機種とカミソリによる手入れを比較して,ムダ毛の手入れと肌への影響を調査した。この結果,手入れの前後で,TEWLが増し,安全カミソリのみならず,むしろ,肌を傷めずに脱毛できると訴求される電動脱毛器においても,肌に赤みや炎症を起こし肌荒れの原因になる可能性が示された。

Unwanted hair is cause for concern in a woman. However, treatment for unwanted hair has given rise to damage to the skin in many cases. In this study, we investigated treatment for excess hair and its influence on the skin, by three models of electric depilators and a safety razor. Nineteen women aged from 20 to 38 were the subjects. Comparison of 3 models of electric depilators and a safety razor showed that TEWL and redness increased in most cases. With not only the safety razor but also the electric depilators, reddish tinge and inflammation were caused and skin roughness appeared. It was shown that correct skin care is important to maintain a beautiful body.
