Benefits of Regular Waxing

Benefits of Regular Waxing

August 31 2019

As summer begins to wind to a close and we anticipate those cooler months ahead, many women start to cancel their waxing appointments – after all, bikini season is just about over. However, keeping up that waxing routine is important, because you can undo all your progress if you stop. Today, we’ll talk about the reasons to keep waxing, regardless of the season.

Smooth skin, all the time. Unlike shaving, which leaves you with uncomfortable stubble after a day or so, waxing leaves your skin smooth and soft for much longer. That’s because shaving cuts hair at the skin surface, so it’s easy to grow back quickly. With waxing, hair is removed at the root, so first the hair follicle needs to reform before the hair can grow again. Because of this, hair often grows back thinner and weaker.

No risk of nicks and cuts. One wrong move with a razor and you’re likely to get an unsightly cut that takes time to heal. With waxing, there are no nicks or cuts. In fact, waxing can make your skin healthier since it has an exfoliating effect, removing excess dirt and dead skin cells and helping to stimulate skin rejuvenation.

No irritation. Another option to shaving, hair removal creams and gels, but these can cause allergic reactions, rashes, and irritation. Waxing uses minimal ingredients, so irritation is very rare, and it’s a much more effective than many cream and gel products.

Long lasting. Waxing lasts between four to six weeks, much longer than shaving or any other hair removal option. With regular waxing, the process becomes easier over time as the hairs grow back finer, making them easier to remove.

If you’ve never waxed before, remember these tips for your first appointment:

  • Don’t shave – you’ll need hair that’s at least one-quarter inch long to embed into the wax for removal
  • Don’t use lotions or other products before your appointment
  • Avoid treatments like tanning beds, saunas, and other hot treatments 24 hours before your appointment
  • Take ibuprofen a half hour before your appointment if you are concerned about pain, but with a professional waxing, there’s less discomfort than you think
  • Don’t miss appointments no matter what the season, and schedule them about once a month for best results
