Hairy legs aren't always the most attractive feature on men or women. Shaving causes hair to grow back thicker and darker in some cases, and when done improperly, it can leave nicks and cuts. Thinning out leg hair in men makes it easier for a tan to work, show muscles and just give an overall better look. Less hair also helps competitive swimmers by reducing friction to swim and move faster.
Wax away the leg hair. Go to a salon or get a kit from a beauty supply store and do it on your own. Hot wax and cloth strips work together to remove hair from the root and leave your legs smoother longer. Waxing also helps slow the regrowth of hair and causes new hair to grow back finer and thinner, and in some cases not grow back at all. Pain is associated with this process, but some people find it bearable and worth the pain to remove the hair for a longer period of time.
Use an electric shaver or small nose and beard trimmer on the legs. This can help to remove longer hairs by making them significantly shorter. Shorter hairs give the illusion of less hair, making legs look less bushy and overly hairy. This is less painful than most other methods.
Use an epilator on longer or darker hairs you wish to remove. The rotary head that resembles an electric shaver spins and yanks out hairs. There are different methods and a variety of ways to use this product that can both remove the hair completely or just thin it out, depending on your preference.
Mix together 2 tbsp. of lemon juice and 8 tbsp. of honey and apply it to any areas on the legs you wish to thin, going in the same direction of the hair. Leave this on for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Repeating this method twice a week will cause the hair to grow back thinner and finer.
