Question by Nowye: Is there a health risk with long term usage of Nair?
I have this annoying hair on my shoulders and upper back but I’m just too cheap to get into the trap of waxing so I use Nair. My question is is there any health risk to my skin for using Nair long term (like cancer or even worse causing wrinkles)? How do you do hair removal?

Nair and other depilatories are regulated for safety by the FDA. They have been approved for decades, so there is little long term risk associated with them.
The major issue of these creams is the fact that they can cause very painful rashes or blistering in fair skinned people. If you havent had that reaction, you should not have anything to worry about.
