Okay, so maybe it should be called quicker and easier (than having it done with scorching liquid wax at the hands of a maniacal esthetician), cuz the patience involved with, say, de-fuzzing a back or bush is seriously sage-grade. Doing your back? Get a buddy to help. Prep by trimming the hair (so it adheres "easier"), pat on some baby powder (sweat means it won't take), then get ready to let 'er rip. But before you do the deed, be sure to stretch your skin taught (this prevents bruising) and smooth the strip in the direction of the hair growth (you'll be pulling against it). Reduce redness by applying pressure with your hand to the newly bared area post-rip. Follow with the provided azulene oil and you're good to go.
