Shaving vs waxing is an ongoing debate. Is waxing worth it or is a quick shave during your morning shower enough? While waxing keeps your hair away much longer than shaving, it has many other benefits that many women don’t realize.
Let’s check them out.
You Change the Hair Regrowth Cycle
Waxing slows hair regrowth – which is what you want! This means smoother skin, more time in your mornings to do other things (sleep, maybe) and thinner hair regrowth. When you wax, you remove the hair at the root, rather than cutting the hair at the shaft where it meets the skin, as shaving does. If you wax regularly, your hair grows back slower and slower, giving you smoother skin for longer periods.
Your Skin Gets Exfoliated
Waxing doesn’t replace the need to exfoliate, but it’s a nice bonus when you get it done. It rips off the outer layer of your skin, giving your skin a fresh start. It’s up to you to take care of that skin by moisturizing, staying hydrated, and continually exfoliating at least once a few days after your waxing appointment.
You’ll Feel more Comfortable
Have you ever felt the uncomfortable hair regrowth itch? It’s like you know the minute your hair is growing back because you incessantly itch. Waxing solves that problem. Since your hair grows back slower, it doesn’t get to the skin’s surface as fast, so you may skip the itchy feeling altogether.
Say Goodbye to Razor Burn
We’ve all been there – that painful razor burn that negates any beauty that shaving was supposed to offer. Not only is it ugly, but it hurts! Waxing doesn’t create this problem. In fact, your technician will likely ask you not to shave in between your waxing appointments, so once you start waxing, you can say goodbye to razor burn forever.
Reduce the Risk of Ingrown Hairs
If you’ve never had an ingrown hair, consider yourself lucky. It hurts. Waxing eliminates this risk, though. Technicians pull your skin tight before ripping off the wax strip, which ensures that they get every hair, and reduce or eliminate the risk of ingrown hairs growing and putting you at risk for infection.
You Get Pampered
It’s not often that we take time for ourselves, so consider your waxing time ‘me time’ and enjoy it. Let your Glaminator do the work making you beautiful while you enjoy a little relaxation time. You’ll have more time to yourself when this pesky task is completed too, since you won’t have to work in time to shave every other day.
If you don’t wax yet, consider it! Waxing makes your life simpler and your skin smoother. You don’t have to worry about ugly hair growth every few days or worrying about what you look like when you’re in a hurry and forgot to shave. There’s nothing to shave when you get waxed regularly and the more you do it, the slower your hair grows back.
