Reasons to switch to waxing instead of continuing shaving

Many people still resort to shaving when it comes to hair removal, but there are many reasons why waxing is so much better for you, including saving time, caring for sensitive skin and safety. We take a look at 12 reasons to wax instead of shave.

You don't cut yourself

According to a survey conducted by Jama Dermatology, a quarter of people who wax intimate areas injure themselves in the process-that's quite a few! Not only is it particularly painful when you scrape sensitive skin, but you're also susceptible to infection, especially if you reuse your blades.

It will last much longer

It only takes a few days after shaving for the area to start feeling prickly with hair growth. If you wax, you could be as smooth as a baby's bottom for almost three weeks. When life is busy, making time every other day to shave as part of your beauty regimen can be difficult.

Waxing rips the hair out at the root, so it has to grow back completely, giving you weeks of that silky smooth feeling.

The hair will grow back thinner.

Many waxing clients report that after regular waxing, the hair starts to grow back thinner and sometimes lighter. If you shave, you will break the hair at the thickest part of the follicle, which will cause it to grow back and appear thicker.

It won't always hurt as much as the first time

There's no way around it, waxing can hurt, especially if it's your first time, but if it's done by a professional with a quality wax, the pain will be kept to a minimum.

It also depends on the individual and often the time of day can affect skin sensitivity. A professional will also use pre- and after-care products, preparing the skin and soothing and cooling red or sore skin after treatment.

Many quality waxes are also developed with microcirculation technology, which means it binds around the hair rather than pulling on the skin.

A smoother finish

How often do you shave, but when you run your hands over the area, you can still feel a slightly prickly beard? Annoying, isn't it? As mentioned above, pre-waxing products will soften the skin before waxing and a quality wax will pull the hair out without a trace.

Waxing saves you time

Standing in the shower, getting into awkward positions and finding the right angles to get to all the hard-to-reach areas can be time consuming and, in most cases, you're likely to miss a few spots. Save yourself time and hassle by letting a professional perform a quick and effective treatment.

You'll also be sure you're hair-free and avoid any worries about those awkward spots you missed.

Best for sensitive skin.

If you suffer from a skin condition, shaving can aggravate any problems, especially if you shave every day or two. Dragging a razor across your skin can cause painful, red rashes and uncomfortable irritation.

As mentioned earlier, waxing allows you to choose hypoallergenic waxes and added ingredients with moisturizing properties. In addition to that, an experienced professional will know how to treat different skin types and will be trained to prepare your skin and treat it after waxing.

Ingrown hairs are less likely to occur

While ingrown hairs may be a common complaint with waxing, they will be much less likely than when you shave. This is because waxing removes all the hair down to the root; when it grows back, it's thinner and tapered, so it's less likely to get trapped under the skin.

When you shave, the hair is cut in the middle of the follicle, so it grows back with a blunt end that causes it to get stuck under the skin. Our Ingrown Hair Serum is a fantastic product for treating and preventing ingrown hairs. The powerful dual action formula contains pineapple and papaya fruit enzymes blended with a hydroxy acid derivative to exfoliate the area where the hair is trapped.

Helps exfoliate your skin.

When you remove the wax from your skin, you also remove the dead skin cells that come to the surface. Dead skin cells can create a buildup of dirt and oils and leave clogged pores. When the wax removes the bad stuff, it will leave your skin feeling healthy and help prevent skin conditions.

A better finish

Whether it's for yourself or for someone else's benefit, waxing will leave your skin looking fresh and flawless, but it also gives you the opportunity to experiment with different designs. There are many different ways to wax intimate areas and it all depends on what your preference is.
