Why do you need to ditch the blade? Well, it’s simple: waxing will get the job done and it lasts way longer than shaving. If you want to look and feel good, and enjoy less time getting ready for work, or your next big event or big date, waxing should be added to your to-do list.
If you are a woman, then you know getting rid of body hair is a hassle – reaching for that razer each morning with one goal in mind: to be hair-free. Shaving takes time and you risk cutting yourself, and then you have to constantly worry about buying new razors to replace the dull ones.
Waxing does not cut your hair, but instead extracts the follicles from their roots, which results in smooth, hair-less skin for a longer length of time compared to shaving. Just think of all that time you will save by not having to shave in the shower each morning, and you can even fill that extra time to enjoy your morning coffee, or catching up on the news, or getting your notes ready for work meetings.
How long does a waxing last?
For most women, waxing should last between 3 to 6 weeks. How long it lasts mainly depends on personal hair growth, location of wax, and the accuracy of the application. Waxing technicians recommend waiting 6 weeks before the next appointment, and they also recommend to grow your hair out to be 1/4-inch long, or about the size of a grain of rice. Make sure it is not longer than 1/2, or you may have to trim beforehand. Avoid the urge to pluck, shave or poke at hairs until your next waxing appointment for smoother and more even results.
Is sugaring better than waxing?
According to women, there are benefits to both sugaring and waxing. Most women report that sugaring is a gentler method for removing hair, while waxing does cause some pain. Both sugaring and waxing remove all hair types and have the same result times (3 to 4 weeks). They also differ slightly in costs: average cost for sugaring is about $15 for facial, and about $100 for full legs; average cost for waxing is about $10 for facial, and about $70 for full legs. The mixture of ingredients is also different: sugaring – sugar, lemon, and water; waxing – beeswax, oils, resin, and other additives.
How often should I get waxed?
The average time between appointments is 3 to 8 weeks. Some of the downtime is waiting for some regrowth before it can be successfully removed. How regularly you get waxed also depends on how noticeable your hair is, your budget, and how much it bothers you.
Here is a breakdown for waxing treatments:
- Face: every 2-3 weeks.
- Underarms: every 2 weeks.
- Bikini Area: every 3-4 weeks.
- Additional body services: every 3-4 weeks.
When it comes to waxing, you will get the best results if you follow a consistent schedule. Your skin may be sensitive after waxing and you might experience some slight redness, but this goes away in a couple of hours.
To prevent clogged pores, it is recommended to not put any heavy lotions on the skin after waxing. Some oils may be used to soothe the skin but speak with your practitioner who may have the advice you need. A practitioner may also outline the process and benefits with waxing.
Waxing is now very popular among women. And many women contend that once you wax, you will never go back. The razor blade is old news and waxing is the in-thing if you want to look and feel sexy. Think of all the money you will save on blades and all that extra time you will have in the morning.
