Quick, pain­less, and (mostly) in­ex­pen­sive, shav­ing is the

eas­i­est way to re­move un­wanted hair from your body, in­clud­ing your face. Th­ese in­no­va­tive tools make the cut.

1

RA­ZOR

The abil­ity to run a

blade up and down legs with­out lift­ing the han­dle speeds my daily shav­ing rou­tine

and makes it eas­ier to nav­i­gate

around my an­kles and knees

with­out nicks. Schick In­tu­ition f.a.b., $14; drug­stores

2 BEAUTY BLADE

Derma­plan­ing

is a form of ex­fo­li­a­tion done with a blade that not only re­moves dead skin but also fine, fuzzy hairs on cheeks

and jaw­line.

Pro treat­ments cost over $100, so this DIY smooth­ing

de­vice is a smart in­vest­ment. Der­maflash

2.0, $189; der­maflash.com

BIKINI GROOMER

My love-hate re­la­tion­ship with bathing suit

sea­son has im­proved since I dis­cov­ered this pen-size trim­mer and shaver. I keep it in my travel kit so last-minute

touch-ups are no big deal. Gil­lette Venus Bikini Pre­ci­sion, $20; drug­stores

FACE TRIM­MER

A hairy up­per lip

qual­i­fies as a beauty emer­gency in my book. Here’s a fast fix: Fin­ish­ing Touch Flaw­less

Col­ors ($20; myflaw­less­col­ors .com). The ro­tary gad­get gen­tly clips

fa­cial hairs with­out red­ness or

ir­ri­ta­tion.

1342What makes this ra­zor so spe­cial? It’s bidi­rec­tional:The top blades shave up­ward. Thebot­tom blades shave down­ward. Hold the edge at a 45-de­gree an­gle against your face. Sonic vi­bra­tion helps it glide eas­ily across skin.A comb at­tach­ment gives you the op­tionto trim. Move the tip in small cir­cles. The grooves cap­ture hair sothe ro­tat­ing in­ner mech­a­nismcan slice it.in­sta­gram @em­beau­ty­coach Erica Met­zgerBeauty & Fash­ion Di­rec­tor
