Access this Article
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.
