It’s that time of the year again—time to escape the cold and jet away on our winter vacations. To get you prepped for your winter getaway, we took an inside look at the obvious reasons as to why waxing is better for your skin. So leave the razors behind and check out our top five reasons to wax.
1) Goodbye Irritation
Shaving can be extremely uncomfortable. Constant razor strokes cause your skin to be irritated and can leave behind bumps and redness. For a process that only lasts a few days, shaving does more major damage than good. If done correctly, waxing should be practically pain-free and redness should be gone by the time you leave!
2) Hello Exfoliation
Waxing is a great way to exfoliate your skin. When wax is applied to the body, it instantly begins to dry and during the process of hair removal dead skin cells will be removed as well. Though it’s a great idea to exfoliate before and after a wax, (as long as it’s before 24 hours before your appointment!) waxing plays a large part in leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth.
3) Long Lasting Effects
Shaving means that you are simply just cutting the hair follicle at the point it grows out of the body—allowing your hair to grow back quickly. By removing the hair from the root through waxing, it takes a lot longer to grow back because your body will have to reproduce that hair follicle. So not only will you have to wax less than if you were to shave but it will also last for weeks!
4) The Thinner, The Better
Shaving causes the hair to grow back not only more quickly, but also thicker. Shaving is like trimming your split ends and this may work great for the hair on your head but not so much for the unwanted hair on our bodies. Because waxing removes the entire hair follicle, if the follicle does grow back it will be much finer and lighter.
5) Au Naturel
Shaving does not benefit your skin in any way. Every time that you shave, you are actually damaging the top layer of your skin, and can ever result in cuts, scraps and scarring. Because of the natural ingredients in wax, waxing leaves your skin silky smooth for an extended period of time—perfect for any tropical holiday!
Waxing is all about making our complicated lives less complicated. Our skin is our largest organ, so it’s important that we take care of it. So before you head out on your sunny vacation this winter, give your skin a break and let a professional treat you to smooth, soft and silky skin!
