Benefits of Waxing over Shaving

Thursday, February 01, 2018

Are you one of the overly blessed when it comes to how fast your hair grows? All over your body? Maybe you just dread shaving your legs so often that when you do, you could donate it to locks of love? We feel your follicle pain! Shaving is a tedious task that is getting the boot as the more effective and long-lasting beauty ritual of waxing is taking over the hair removal industry. I know, I know. It sounds horrific! Smearing hot wax on the most delicate parts of one’s anatomy only to have it ruthlessly ripped off in one fell swoop? Well, don’t let the horror stories intimidate you! Waxing has gotten an undeserved rap and if you pause for a moment to count the daps of tissue on the nicks and cuts your favorite razor left behind, you’ll realize that waxing is the way of the future and has benefits that will have you racing to your local esthetician for that perfect Brazilian!  

Smooth operator – We are all looking for smooth, long lasting results when we shave or wax. But waxing pulls the hair all the way from the root resulting in removal of the hair follicle at the root for longer lasting smoothness compared to the rapid re-growth from shaving. Less stubble for less time? Count us in!

Fast but not furious - Quick & convenient is a must in today’s fast-paced world. Waxing takes literally seconds compared to the time it takes to carefully maneuver your razor and avoid unnecessary bloodshed.

Hurts so good – Ok, maybe not entirely but believe it or not, when you get waxed by a professional, waxing can be relatively pain free. And the longer you wax, the more accustomed your skin will become and the less sensitive.

Bumpy roads and legs – We all know what the dreaded shaving bumps look and feel like and it ain’t pretty! Many people use the same razor over and over and bacteria can build up and cause irritation and skin rashes. Not to mention nobody appreciates those annoying, painful ingrown hairs. Shaving causes the tiny stub-root of your hair to become stuck under the skin and form them.  Waxing removes the entire hair all the way down to the root, preventing ingrown hairs from forming.

Battle scars – We’ve all been the victim of our own carelessness and nothing is worse than a razor nick  that has you wearing the full length maxi-dress out on the town, when you really wanted to sport that new mini-skirt!

Less is more – Once you’ve added waxing to your regular routine, you’ll notice that when the hair finally does grow back, it grows back lighter and thinner. Over time, in certain areas, the hair will become barely noticeable.

The say old habits die hard, which wouldn’t be such a bad thing if shaving is your old habit. Waxing is creating smooth surfaces of legs, brows, lips, and any part of the anatomy you choose to apply it to! To try it out for yourself, find a good local licensed esthetician with great reviews and bravely go! Wax!
