Waxing vs Shaving.....what you NEED to know....
Are you a waxer or a shaver? Perhaps you have some burning questions about what a wax is like or if waxing is better than shaving. Well I'm here to give you the lowdown on why you may be missing out on smoother, hair-free skin for longer.
Did you know that shaving can actually increase the appearance of hair. When you use a blade to cut the hairs, it does so by leaving a blunt edge at the tip of the remaining hair. This will actually make the hair appear darker, thicker and more coarse. Not to mention that shaving only removes the hair down to the surface of the skin whereas waxing removes the hair from the root meaning that you will be hair-free for longer.
Over time waxing can actually thin out hair growth so you will have less to remove and less often. The results of waxing can last up to 4 weeks. Wouldn't that be a welcome relief from picking up the razor every 1-3 days?
Waxing is also gentler on the skin. With less irritation and no risk of cuts the skin will feel softer and smoother. Couple this with using a good aftercare product such as Wax:One Care to reduce and treat ingrown hairs, you couldn't want for a smoother finish.
From eyebrow waxing, to underarm waxing and even Hollywood waxing (removing all hair from the bikini area) you'll never be afraid to wear the camisole top or the mid length skirt let alone being beach ready.
