Why You Should Choose Waxing Over Shaving
by admin June 15 2019
Summer is almost officially here, can you believe it? Winter clothing has been packed up in favor for lighter clothes like shorts, tank tops, and summer dresses. Swimwear has also been pulled out for avid beach and swimming pool lovers. Now, with all that skin exposed to the world, you’ll want it to be smooth and free of any unwanted hair. But maybe you don’t know what the best option is? Here are some reasons to switch to waxing for smooth, silky skin this summer season.
No Nicks and Cuts
It’s very easy to accidentally cut your skin while shaving, just a quick flick and now you have to deal with the sharp stinging pain. It’s bound to happen and it sucks, you have to deal with a mess and now be mindful of the scab unless you want a repeat. Those cuts can even leave you with annoying scars. Waxing eliminates that problem all together, it’s a quick pull and a whole patch of hair is gone, leaving your skin silky smooth with no cuts!
Stubble returns quickly when you remove hair by shaving. If you have dark hair on a lighter complexion, it stands out easier. Shaving only cuts hair at the surface, leaving the roots intact and leaving them to regrow as usual. Waxing removes hair at the root and to regrow, it has to start from the follicle. You’ll have smoother results for about four to six weeks.
Hair appears thicker after shaving because of the angle it’s cut at. This angle makes it more visible as it regrows. That’s where the belief that hair grows back thicker when you shave comes from. With waxing, hair regrowth becomes finer, and after a while of regular waxing, some areas may no longer regrow hair at all.
Waxing also gives you an additional benefit you might not have thought of. Dead skin cells and pollutants are removed along with unwanted hair. This also stimulates your skin’s natural rejuvenation processes to help your skin look its best. The regeneration works to improve visible texture issues like fine lines and even scars.
