So maybe you’re considering getting waxed but you just can’t seem to get past the pain. Don’t worry, we get it. Maybe we can help ease your mind (and the pain) by sharing the benefits you’re going to see from choosing to wax – and there are a lot of them!
1. Smooth and Even Skin
When you decide to wax you are not only removing unwanted hair, but you’re also removing dead skin. This will ensure a smooth feel and you don’t have to worry about all those spots you missed trying to get to the back of your legs in the shower (and don’t even get us started on the knee cap… razors were never meant for knee caps).
2. You’re Saving Money
Have you ever entered the razor aisle of the drug store, anxiously awaiting a big, bright red tag to tell you they are FINALLY on sale, only to realize all of them are full price? Because who were you kidding in the first place? They are never on sale.
Razors are not cheap and can dull out pretty fast. With waxing, you can have smooth, hairless skin for up to 6 weeks without having to purchase a single razor or the real enemy – packs of replacement heads.
3. No Cuts or Discolouration
We can promise no sharp objects are involved in the waxing process, so you will always end up injury-free.
Another huge downside to shaving is discolouration; especially in the armpits or any spots where the hair is extremely thick. With waxing, you are removing the hair entirely and straight out of the follicle. This will ensure no dark spots or unwanted discolouration.
4. No Irritation
Shaving can cause ‘stubbles’ which, over time, results in abrasive skin that is susceptible to irritation. This will also be made worse when shaving creams or moisturizers are added to the equation.
We’ll wait while you get the image of burning legs out of your head…waxing allows for a smooth result that is free of bumps, lumps, burning or itching.
5. Hair Growth will Slow Down
A one-time date with waxing will give you great, lasting results. But a long-term, committed relationship with waxing will ensure you the best results.
What does this mean? Well, if you decide to fully commit to the waxing process by going every 6 to 7 weeks, you will start to see your hair growth slow down. This isn’t guaranteed for everyone, but there is a big difference between cutting the hair at the surface of the skin and removing it from the root completely. For us, at least two weeks of hairless skin outweighs the effort that goes into shaving.
3 Quick Before and After Tips for Waxing
You’ll Have to Let it Grow
About 1 cm of hair is ideal when you’re heading into a wax appointment. Depending on how fast your hair grows, you’re looking at about 1 to 1 1/2 weeks of growth to ensure the best results. The wax will not be able to attach itself to hair that is too close to the skin.
Even without waxing, exfoliation is always a smart move for healthy skin. Removing dead skin cells helps to unclog pores, prevent acne, encourage cell turnover, increase collagen production and the list goes on!
Exfoliating before a wax appointment will ensure we are able to snag all the hair and provide long lasting results.
This is a before and after must! As we stated earlier, waxing not only removes unwanted hair but it also removes dead skin cells. So when you leave your appointment your skin will be delicate.
Keeping the skin hydrated will help promote the overall health and look of your skin and also aid in the prevention of unwanted hair problems like pesky ingrowns!
