Time to shave — again. And again. No, thank you. While shaving might be the most common way to remove hair, most men and women find they have to shave every one to three days to keep their skin smooth. Who has time to do a full shave every day?
When you wax, you’ll be able to be smooth and hair-free for up to 6 weeks. You’ve heard it all about waxing before, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Well, we are here to praise waxing as one of the best methods of hair removal, because it is!
Despite the fact that a stranger would have to look at your body hair, and apart from the pain that inevitably comes when your hair is pulled from the root, waxing offers a number of surprising benefits. It’s definitely worth a little rain if you want to finally see a rainbow and a pot of gold: silky smooth skin with superior regrowth – guaranteed. In fact, you may find that there are glamorous gold-powder soft body waxes in the pot!
WHERE CAN YOU WAX
Whether you’re using a sugar wax kit or another type of wax kit, you’ll be glad to know that you can wax just about anywhere on your body. The parts of your body that you can wax include:
You will have less rise between appointments
There’s a good reason that regrowth slows down when you wax: The hair is pulled from the root. This way, your skin will remain smooth for some time which extends from the renewal of torn hair follicles to the hair shaft reaching the surface of the skin. This entire process usually lasts three to four weeks, the average time that goes between waxing appointments. Conversely, when you shave, the razor is only cutting the hair shaft at the surface of the skin. As you can imagine, this is why everyone will tell you to stay away from razors if you choose to wax regularly. The rhythm of hair removal with a waxing appointment may be disrupted if you cut the hair on the surface. At the end of the day, once you start waxing consistently, you will definitely notice less growth, and this is one of the best benefits you can
Your skin will get gentle exfoliation
Waxing removes the outermost layer of skin, which means your skin will look smooth and glowing, but keep in mind that waxing is not exfoliation. In fact, you should exfoliate a few days before your waxing appointment to prepare the skin for the procedure. Do not exfoliate on the same day of your appointment as this can make your skin very sensitive. A few days after the appointment, you can wax again: By then any redness will subside, and the pores will be closed. Post-waxing exfoliation is one way to keep ingrown hairs away.
Your skin inflammation will go down
Did you know that frequent shaving leads to chronic inflammation of the skin? The friction from the razor in this area as well as the skin-to-skin natural friction gives way to swelling and discoloration. The latter occurs when the skin reacts to inflammation by thickening, and the melanocytes (pigment-making cells in the skin) become more active. The discoloration is more common in darker skin types, and it can sometimes be a sign of diabetes. This is a very common disadvantage of shaving that can be greatly relieved by waxing because the skin will be exposed less to repeated friction: just one appointment a month means less inflammation and less chance of skin discoloration.
You’ll have less bothersome itching and stinging
When the hairs come to the surface, they become itchy and prickly. When you wax, it will take longer for the hair to reach the surface of the skin; Therefore, you will feel comfortable for a long time. It’s also worth noting that the prickly feeling of hair growth after shaving is more noticeable because the razor cuts the hair at an angle, making the hair look black. You may be relieved that once you start waxing, you’ll be less bothered by this stinging sensation.
