9 Reasons to Wax Instead of Shave
Did you know that the average American woman spends nearly 60 days of her life shaving? If you’re tired of the skin irritation, time, and money that goes into shaving on a regular basis, then it may be time to consider waxing as a means of hair removal instead. After all, there are numerous benefits that waxing affords you over traditional shaving.
When you have your hair waxed, you’ll enjoy longer-lasting results since the entire hair is removed (follicle and all). As a result, results of waxing can last anywhere from three to six weeks!
No Cuts or Nicks
Have you ever cut yourself while shaving? Not only can this result in a lot of blood, but it can make you more prone to infection as well. With waxing, you don’t have to worry about accidentally cutting yourself.
Because waxing involves the removal of the entire hair shaft, you’ll also notice that your skin feels a lot smoother when you wax instead of shave.
Less Risk of Ingrown Hairs
When you shave your skin, it is possible that the remainder of the hair just above the skin could grow into the skin itself, which is also known as an ingrown hair. This can be a rather painful experience, especially if the ingrown hair occurs in a sensitive area. You can easily avoid ingrown hairs by waxing instead of shaving.
Hair Grows Back Thinner
If you repeatedly wax instead of shave your hair, you’ll also find that it grows back thinner over time. As a result, many people are able to extend the amount of time in between waxing. This occurs because the hair follicle becomes smaller and thus hair grows back thinner and finer.
Ideal for Hard-to-Reach Places
Shaving is easy enough, but it’s not always so easy to reach certain areas of the body for shaving. Waxing makes this much easier, especially if you have it professionally done.
Potentially Permanent Results
With enough waxing over the years, some people find that the hair actually stops growing back and the hair removal becomes more-or-less permanent!
Better for Sensitive Skin
There are specially formulated waxes for sensitive skin that provide added moisture and nourishment, so you can remove hair in a way that’s good for your skin and not overly irritating.
Help Drain Toxins From the Body
Waxing can also help to drain toxins from the body, which occurs after the follicle is pulled out of the skin. As a result, you may find that you enjoy more energy and overall better wellness after waxing.
