In the world of hair removal, waxing and shaving are really known, however, they are entirely different. Which hair removal method do you mostly do? Have you ever known the pros and cons of our skin?
There are a lot of reasons why waxing is always the best choice, Check it out:
Waxing helps you to make your hair doesn’t grow back very quickly since it removes the hair from the root. Shaving still leaves an amount of hair below the surface that appears in a day or two.
With waxing, the hair is removed at the follicle. This means the hair regenerates and grows back, it does so with a finely tapered end. Shaving as we said, you cut off the hair which results in a blunt cut. Hairs aren’t naturally blunt! It’s why hair regrowth after shaving feels stubbly.
Waxing is like exfoliation
A build-up of dead skin cells and grime on your skin can cause outbreaks, blemishes, and dryness. It’s why we exfoliate, in order to remove it all. With waxing, all of this is removed for you, as part of the process. The result is that the waxed area is smooth, radiant, clean, and fresh.
Waxing banishes shaving rash
Shaving rash is inflammation of the skin caused by irritation. If you’re prone to shaving rash then one of the main hot wax benefits is that you should be able to avoid it ever again. With shaving, you’ll be exposing the area to friction every few days, which only makes inflammation worse. With waxing, you can avoid this for over a month at a time giving your skin a chance to calm down.
Fewer ingrown hairs
A professional waxing specialist will knowledgeably ensure they remove the wax strips in the way best proven to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. This involves a fast removal whilst the skin is held tight. Shaving can be a disaster for many people in terms of ingrown hair. Ingrown hairs can be painful and look unsightly. At worst, they can become infected and lead to scarring.
Waxing says goodbye to itching
Many people find that immediately post-shave they experience itching, and then as soon as regrowth starts, the itching ramps up again. With waxing, you’ll experience the brisk sting and a subsequent prickle, but then you should be itch-free for longer.
Waxing means no more shaving cuts
You may have had twenty years’ experience shaving your legs and still somehow nick your ankle with the razor. It’s not surprising as you need a good lather for a clean shave which means that you, your hands, and the razor are all slippery! A professional waxing treatment will not result in nicks or cuts, or any type of skin damage.
It’s an opportunity for pampering
Shaving is a beauty chore. Booking in for a wax, especially in the comfort of your own home, is a chance to be looked after and cared for by a professional beautician, and a chance to take some time out of your busy day to do something to make you feel good and beautiful. There may be the quick sting of the strips of wax being removed, but the soothing warmth of hot wax, and the professional touch of the beautician, are definitely pampering.
