To wax or to shave? It is a good question for both men and women nowadays. Actually, this simple life choice can affect your everyday life. Shaving can be an easy and fast option for removing your body hair because it’s cheap. It only takes a razor and a couple of minutes to be ready to go. On the other hand, waxing can be a little bit more expensive, but more time efficient in the long run – along with many other benefits. When comparing pros and cons, and choosing what’s best for you and your skin, there is only one winner: waxing.
Here are ten specific reasons why you should choose waxing as your primary hair removal method:
1. No more cuts
Razors and cuts are close friends. When shaving, you can harm yourself due to sharp blades, or just thinking and getting distracted. Unintentional cuts on your skin aren’t fun, but they’re very likely to happen if you shave regularly. Waxing just takes about a 45 min trip to the spa once a month. Our professional waxing experts at Wax Spa will help you have the best experience possible.
2. No more itching
If you’ve ever shaved your legs, armpits or pubic areas, you know what we’re talking about here. It’s ITCHY! This is a very common problem for women and men even right after shaving. What about when you go to the beach? Itchier! With waxing, this is prevented by using high-quality and nourishing waxes like the ones used at Wax Spa.
3. Long-lasting results
What shaving basically does is to cut off the visible part of the hair that’s on the surface of your skin. Unfortunately, that hair showing is much larger than that. That’s the reason why after shaving, hair grows back quickly compared to waxing. Waxing actually removes the hair from the root, taking your hair longer to show off your skin – three to four weeks – since it has to grow back again.
4. Goodbye hairs. Maybe. Most Likely.
Since hairs are pulled out from the root when you wax, the hair follicles are weakened. When hair grows back, it’s less strong and it will continue to be weaker as you regularly wax. It may even cease to grow!
5. Hello thinner hairs.
You already know that weakens the hair follicles, right? Now, this also makes your hairs start to grow much thinner. Also, hairs will become easier to pull out.
6. Waxing removes dead skin cells
Another benefit from waxing is that it also exfoliates your skin. Have you ever felt your skin smoother after waxing? This is because when you pull out the wax from your skin, it takes away dead cells and leaves a brand-new layer of skin.
7. Smoother outcome
Your skin will be smoother and more attractive after your waxing session. This is a huge benefit that comes along with waxing and puts it on top of the preferred hair- removal methods list.
8. No more hyperpigmentation
In some cases, hyperpigmentation – when small areas of the skin become darker than the rest – is developed because of shaving constantly. This will never happen with waxing!
9. Endless Options
At Wax Spa, we provide you the option to choose among different body waxes with scents and moisturizing properties, and we only use body waxing that protect sensitive skins. Alternatives are endless…
10. Better results overall!
Even though shaving is faster than waxing, it won’t give you long term results. On the other hand, waxing just takes about a 45-minute trip to the spa once a month and you’ll get benefits that will help you in the long run. Shaving can save you when all of a sudden you need to attend a party or any other kind of special event. It might be the easiest way out, but it’s certainly not the best. However, waxing is the preferred option for a healthy skin. Perks of pulling out the hair from the root!
