The desire to have smooth, sexy, and hair-free skin has been around for ages and it may surprise you that the custom of getting rid of body hair partially or completely is a longstanding one. In fact, the history of going bare down there, and everywhere, significantly pre-dates the introduction of the Brazilian and popular women’s magazines.
Across the world, in a variety of cultures, removal of body hair, particularly female but also male, has long been considered proper hygiene. Next time you visit Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts for example, take time to explore the nude portraits of the Italian Renaissance period and note not one hair on the bunch! It appears that fans of hair removal have been around for centuries.
How did they accomplish smooth skin back then? According to Jill Burke, lecturer in Italian Renaissance Art History at the University of Edinburgh, the 16th-century Books of Secrets reveals an incredibly dangerous-sounding recipe that required mixing arsenic and quicklime into a paste for “melting hair from the skin’s surface.”
That seems like a high price to pay for beautiful, silky skin. Luckily for those of us with unwanted hair, there are many alternative options available to get rid of embarrassing or excess growth, although some of today’s options— such as waxing, shaving, cutting, plucking, and using chemical depilatory creams— seem just as archaic and unnecessarily painful. While better than the arsenic and quicklime option, these techniques still sound pretty drastic. For instance, take warm wax, apply it to hair, cover it with a small strip of cloth, then let the wax harden before pulling the strip quickly off and thereby removing the hair from its roots. Ouch! There is a level of discomfort to most of today’s hair removal techniques—not just waxing—and pain, skin irritation, cuts, burns, or soreness can remain for days or weeks after an appointment.
Perfect, that’s just in time for your next treatment. Which brings up another salient point about these “modern” strategies for hair removal: Within a week or two you’re back at square one with coarse, stubbly, and often in-grown hair coming right back up to taunt you.
