What You Need To Know About Waxing

Waxing is one of the most popular techniques to get rid of unwanted hair. The procedure consists of spreading a hot wax or strip wax on your body, gripping the hairs and pulling them out with quick swift movements against the direction of hair growth. This will remove the hair from the roots along with any dead skin cells, resulting in soft, smooth, hairless skin.

Regular waxing results in less discomfort as more hairs will have passed the early growth stage, so they will begin to come out more easily when getting a wax. With regular waxing, hair growth is disrupted, shortening the growth cycle and resulting in shorter hairs.

There are various areas of the body that waxing can be performed on. These include:

  • Legs
  • Arm/Underarm
  • Back
  • Foot
  • Chest
  • Eye Brows
  • Face
  • Full body

The Different Types Of Bikini Wax

When it comes to intimate hair removal, it s easy to get confused as there are a number of different bikini wax styles and shapes. Brazilian waxes are the most popular option and involves taking the hair off the top and sides of the bikini line, all the way under and around the back.

Some of the other most popular bikini waxes include:

  • Au natural
  • Bikini line
  • French wax/Landing strip
  • The Hollywood

If you want to feel totally smooth and hairless, go Brazilian.

The Many Benefits

One of the main benefits of regular waxing compared to other hair removal methods is that it can cause hair to regrow at a much slower rate. The exact length of time it takes for the hair to regrow can vary, however with repeated waxing overtime it is usually between four to six weeks, sometimes even longer. When the new growth of hair comes through, it is soft, and fine, unlike the rough, stubbly hair that is a result of shaving.

There are a host of benefits to waxing, some of these include:

  • Smooth and even skin

The hair that grows back after waxing is of a finer and softer variety, leaving your skin feeling smooth and silky.

  • Stubble free skin

With shaving you are left with stubble as it only removes the hair from the top of the skin, leaving your hair feeling rough. With waxing the hair is pulled from the roots resulting in stubble free, smooth skin.

  • Slow hair re-growth

Regular waxing can reduce the length of hair growth over time. Waxing lasts a lot longer than shaving as the process of waxing involves pulling the hair from the roots.

  • No irritation or allergies

Shaving can cause rashes, especially on sensitive skin. When waxing is performed properly by a trained and experienced professional, the results are very little redness and no irritation.

  • No nicks or cuts

When shaving with a razor it is often common you will cut or nick yourself. With waxing, you aren t at risk of this happening and your skin overall will be less exposed to damage.
