Are you sick and tired of shaving? 

Don’t have time to shave as often as you would like?

Do you suffer from skin irrirations caused by shaving?

Have you considered trying waxing, but always changed your mind?

Well, maybe it is time you try waxing! These top 12 benefits of waxing over shaving will give you an overview of why many people have

converted from shaving to waxing as their prefered method of hair removal.

  • It lasts longer than shaving because it pulls the hair from the roots.

  • No cuts or nicks that can leave you with scars, especially if you are like me that has skin susceptible to discoloration even for a minor cut. Waxing on occasion can cause slight surface buising, but this is rare.

  • Improved skin texture. In addition to removing excess, unwanted hair, waxing also removes the top layer of dry, dead skin cells. The result is skin that is far more smooth and even, something that cannot be achieved through hair removal creams or shaving. Some waxes even contain aloe or butter in order to moisturize the skin and further improve its tone and texture.

  • For many, waxing makes the hair grow softer, slower and finer, and when done on a continual basis less hair starts to grow back.

  • Waxing produces smoother results because hair is pulled from the root.

  • Shaving can result in stubbly and rough. If you don't shave often enough, your legs will feel rough and abrasive. This is due to the fact that shaving simply cuts off the hair at the point of where it emerges from the skin.

  • Waxing will make your skin feel smoother longer up to 3 weeks, without feeling itchy, because of slower hair regrowth.

  • Contrary to popular belief, waxing is not always painful. if you do it right (with a professional), and get waxed when needed, not shave in between, it can become almost pain-free.

  • Waxing is fast and convenient. The more areas that are getting waxed in one session the longer your appointment will last. Which means less time in the shower

  • Skin is less susceptible to irritations associated with shaving. You can also use an ingrow solution to minimise ingrown hairs, irritation, redness and bumps caused by shaving, waxing, hair removal cremes and electrolysis.

  • Compared to other temporary hair removal techniques, waxing is cheaper and easier.

  • Less of chance of ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs are hair that grows back into the skin, causing red bumps. Your wax technician will know how to properly execute the correct pull, which has to be quick and the skin held taut. After procedure exfoliation and moisturizing will also further decrease the chance of ingrown hair from waxing.
