The Benefits of Waxing for Silky Smooth Skin
By Bliss Winnetka | November 15, 2020
We all have unwanted hair – on our legs, face, or other parts of the body – and it takes regular upkeep to make our skin soft and smooth. There are lots of different options for hair removal, like shaving, creams, and even laser removal, but only one – waxing – wins the prize for being both economical and effective.
No stubble – and lasts a long time. Stubble is the main problem with shaving, one of the most common hair-loss techniques. You spend time shaving one day, only to have stubble appear in the next day or two, so you have to shave again. That’s because shaving only removes hair at the surface, and the root of each hair is left intact and ready to grow hair back right away. With waxing, the root of each strand is removed, so before any hair can regrow, the root itself has to regrow first. That takes much longer, so the results of waxing last three to six weeks.
Less irritation. Shaving can cause nicks and cuts and irritate your skin, and creams and lotions contain harsh ingredients that can give your skin a rash. There are no sharp blades involved in waxing, so you won’t get those nicks and cuts, and waxing uses only natural wax ingredients that won’t irritate most skin.
Exfoliating. Exfoliating means removing the outer layer of dead skin cells and trapped-in dirt that can clog pores. It helps your skin look bright and fresh, makes it feel soft, and helps to jumpstart the rejuvenating processes that produce collagen and build new skin cells. When your hair is removed by waxing, that layer of dirt and dead cells comes along with it, so you get the benefit of an exfoliating treatment right along with hair removal.
It’s important to keep waxing throughout the year, even in those areas that aren’t visible. That’s because waxing increases its benefits over time, with the roots growing back weaker and hair getting thinner in treated areas. So keep up your waxing even in the colder months to have gorgeous, silky smooth skin next summer!
