If you’re tired of the skin irritation, time, and money that goes into shaving on a regular basis, then it may be time to consider waxing as a means of hair removal instead. After all, there are numerous benefits that waxing affords you over traditional shaving.

No Cuts or Nicks

Have you ever cut yourself while shaving? Not only can this result in a lot of blood, but it can make you more prone to infection as well. With waxing, you don’t have to worry about accidentally cutting yourself.



Longer-Lasting Results

When you have your hair waxed, you’ll enjoy longer-lasting results since the entire hair is removed (follicle and all). As a result, results of waxing can last anywhere from three to six weeks!

Smoother Skin

Because waxing involves the removal of the entire hair shaft, you’ll also notice that your skin feels a lot smoother when you wax instead of shave.

Less Risk of Ingrown Hairs

When you shave your skin, it is possible that the remainder of the hair just above the skin could grow into the skin itself, which is also known as an ingrown hair. This can be a rather painful experience, especially if the ingrown hair occurs in a sensitive area. You can easily avoid ingrown hairs by waxing instead of shaving.


Hair Grows Back Thinner

If you repeatedly wax instead of shave your hair, you’ll also find that it grows back thinner over time. As a result, many people are able to extend the amount of time in between waxing. This occurs because the hair follicle becomes smaller and thus hair grows back thinner and finer.


Potentially Permanent Results

With enough waxing over the years, some people find that the hair actually stops growing back and the hair removal becomes more-or-less permanent!


Better for Sensitive Skin

There are specially formulated waxes for sensitive skin that provide added moisture and nourishment, so you can remove hair in a way that’s good for your skin and not overly irritating.


Help Drain Toxins From the Body

Waxing can also help to drain toxins from the body, which occurs after the follicle is pulled out of the skin. As a result, you may find that you enjoy more energy and overall better wellness after waxing.
