Get rid of body hair

How to remove unwanted bristles painlessly

"Some hair is essential for keeping dust and other particles from irritating your nasal cavity," says Dr Jordan Josephson, sinus surgeon and author of Sinus Relief Now (Penguin). Trimming rather than plucking any stray nostril strands ensures you don't rid yourself of this vital filter while removing any hairs that are making an all-too-public bid for follicular freedom.
"Hairs on the back of your neck grow just as fast as the hair on your head, so if you only rely on your barber to trim it they tend to rub against your collar and become painfully in-grown," says Jane Lewis, leading dermatologist at the Sk:n Clinic  "When your hair is dry, lift it off your neck and shave any hair that's creeping below the hairline." Work it into your morning routine twice a week using your regular razor.

"Just like your nasal hair, those in your ear act as a filter for bacteria and, more interestingly insects," says Lewis. "Don't trim too far inside the ear, as this can increase the chance of infections – only tackle the sprouts that are evident outside of the natural cavity."
Ninety per cent of women surveyed by consumer group Church Dwight named back hair as their biggest turn-off. "The best method for hair removal on the back is waxing," says Libby Eley, an aesthetic technician at Dove Spa. "The deep follicles open when smothered in hot wax, meaning more hair is removed." Unless you are bizarrely flexible seek professional help.
"Many men consider it more hygienic to remove the lot because hair traps sweat and bacteria, which can feel uncomfortable and cause odour," says Lewis. She advises going for the infamous ‘back, sack and crack' but, should you not fancy that (and who would blame you) trimming it rather than shaving will avoid in-growing hairs in inconvenient places
