Clinicbe in daily mailclinicbe’s Dr Barbara Kubicka featured in the Daily Mail online feature entitled:

Should YOU be removing all the hair from your forearms?

The feature explores a noticeable trend in arm hair removal, saying:

“Beauty experts have reported a soaring demand for arm hair removal services, from waxing to de-fuzzing with lasers, and in a recent global survey, 28.6 per cent of women admitted to regularly removing forearm hair, even though it is barely visible, at home.”

Celebrities and ordinary women have been criticised for sporting hairy arms and hair on a woman has become associated with lack of personal care, leading increasing numbers to remove it. Salons report that forearm hair has become one of the more popular waxing procedures; other possible methods include shaving (although the hair regrows with stubble), depilatory creams, electrolysis or laser hair removal .

Dr Barbara Kubicka told the Daily Mail that arm hair removal is a ‘growing trend’ in Britain:

‘Women find it embarrassing to talk about forearm hair but the tendency to think about women as completely hairless is increasingly common so forearms are starting to be targeted.
‘Forearm hairs are more visible with darker skin; there is more pigment in the follicles. ‘These women tend to have coarser hair, which can be problematic when the skin is not tanned and the contrast between skin and hair colour is significant.’
