Hair removal is getting popular these days, especially with young women in their mid 20s. This is probably because of the images on TV and in magazines of young actresses with smooth, clean skin, free of hair on the face and legs, and even sometimes the bikini line.

Shaving is the most common depilation method as well as the use of depilatories (creams which can dissolve hair), but all these methods are only temporary and hair grows back several days after.
