Is waxing for you?

Waxing is a temporary form of hair removal and is needed approximately every 4-6 weeks, depending on the individual hair growth. Wax is heated and applied to the skin, wax grips the hairs and they are pulled out completely, leaving the skin smooth and soft.

5 Benefits of Hot Wax:

Lasts longer than other forms of hair removal

Unlike shaving, waxing completely removes the hairs from their roots and the result typically lasts anywhere from two to eight weeks!

After a period of repeated waxing, you’ll notice that the re-sprouted hairs are finer and less noticeable. In some cases, hairs in some areas might stop growing back altogether!

Waxing is very fast!

It quickly strips away hairs without the hassle of going back and forth with a tiny razor, making it the more efficient choice for busy individuals.

It’s safer!

Waxing is safer than most other methods of hair removal. The blades on a razor could cause bleeding and cuts that look unsightly and potentially lead to inflammation or infection.

Less likely to get ingrown hairs!

When you use a razor to cut the hair off at skin level or just below it, the end of the hair is blunt and can become trapped under the skin. It can begin growing sideways or in circles. Ingrown hairs often cause painful infections.

Waxing removes the entire hair shaft, right down to the root. The new hair is thinner and tapered at the end, which means it is less likely to get trapped under the skin.

Smoother Skin

Besides removing the hairs on the top of the skin, waxing also helps get rid of dead skin cells, revealing smoother, more rejuvenated skin.

The ingredients in waxing products are usually made from natural sources, making it the safer, healthier choice compared to other topical hair removal creams which contain harsh chemicals that irritate the skin.
