Real Men Don’t Shave…Or Do They?

 

A few years back an article like this would have been virtually impossible to find on the big world wide web. ‘Real men’ didn’t shave, doing so would violate and go against the very essence of what is meant to be a man. However in more recent times it has actually not only become acceptable for a man to shave but also fashionable. The very idea that a male might actually take a razor to his chest is not a breach of the manly code anymore; in fact it’s quite the opposite with a high percentage openly admitting that they like to sport the more naked appearance.

There are 4 main areas of the body that most guys tend to remove hair from, these include

Chest

Back

Shoulders

*cough* downstairs *cough*

See from a personal experience I don’t have to worry too much about a big forest appearing on my chest and back because my hair growth is quite slow. Fortunately for me I wasn’t born in the 60s or 70s during the good old rugged days or else I might have actually had to cut up a rug and stick it on my chest in order to fit in. The thing is even if I could grow a good mane it wouldn’t be there for long as whenever some hairs do decide to sprout from my face the Mrs demands that I remove them.

Away With The Hair

Society now demands that we all look pristine which has set in motion the whole going to the gym and healthily eating craze that has in the past few years swept the nation. Go back a few years and it was said “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”…nowadays we are told to have 5 varying fruits in order for our body to obtain the necessary vitamins and nutrients. Also recent research has also shown that natures ‘perfect food’, milk, might not be as good for us as first thought.

Removing ones hair is believed to show off more muscle definition that has come from spending hours in the gym pumping iron in order to obtain rock hard abs and bulging pecks. Think about it, whenever you see a picture on the front of a men’s health magazine how many of them sport hair on their chests? Exactly…

Top Ways To Remove Hair

There are a few methods which can be used to remove hair, with the top ones being shaving, waxing and laser hair removal. Shaving is probably the most commonly used method to achieve the clean look but it can be very time consuming and quite inefficient as hair tends to grow back very quickly. Waxing is another popular method which is more efficient than shaving, however this can be extremely painful and can be very costly over a person’s lifetime. For these very reasons Laser hair removal has become a very popular method as it can remove the majority of the hair from any given area. This means no more time is wasted in the mornings shaving or the expense of having to buy a new razor set or wax strips during the weekly shop. Back laser hair removal tends to be the most common type of hair removal for men followed closely by the chest. Removing hair from the back area can be a challenging task but with laser hair removal once the treatments have finished men never have to worry about their hairy backs ever again.
