The 5 Benefits of Depilatory Waxing
Depilation is any method of removing hair from the body. Out of all the different kinds of depilation, such as threading, tweezing, shaving, or laser, waxing enjoys the most popularity. It has quickly become so widespread that it is now a multibillion-dollar industry.
With all the advantages of depilatory waxing, its success is no wonder. Here are the 5 benefits of depilatory waxing:
1. Hair Removal is Smooth and Thorough
Unlike shaving, waxing removes hair entirely from the follicle itself. Because of its thorough application over the skin through either strips (for soft wax) or wax itself (in the case of hard wax), waxing can efficiently get rid of body hair over long portions of the skin.
Not to mention, it also works perfectly on small and sensitive areas.
2. Hairs Take a Longer Time to Grow Again
If you get waxing done for the first time, your hair won’t regrow for another 3-6 weeks. This is a much longer time for regrowth than other methods because waxing uproots hair from the follicles.
If you get regular waxing done, your time between waxes will increase, and there will also be sparser hair growth over time. A win-win for those wanting smooth, hairless skin!
3. Different Options
There are a few different options you can choose when it comes to waxing, though their benefits are specific to certain areas of the body. For instance, soft waxing is usually done with strips, which easily remove even finer hairs from large portions of the body, such as arms and legs.
Hard wax, on the other hand, is used for smaller and more sensitive parts of the body, such as armpits, bikini area, brow area, or upper lips. Hard wax is heated and applied onto the skin and removed directly after letting it cool. It is also less painful than strip or soft waxing.
4. Skin Exfoliation
Surprisingly, there are skincare benefits of waxing as well. It can exfoliate your skin pretty thoroughly. Since wax is applied directly on the skin to remove the hair, it also gets rid of the dead skin cells.
After every waxing, your skin becomes much fresher and more healthy-looking. Exfoliation can happen with both soft and hard waxing. If you combine waxing with weekly exfoliation, your skin will remain vibrant and renewed.
5. No Skin Allergies, Irritations, Bruises or Cuts
Natural waxes don’t contain any extra ingredient as shaving gels or hair removal creams often do. Because of this, waxing won’t cause you any skin allergies or irritation if done properly.
Unlike shaving or threading, waxing doesn’t lead to bruises or cuts. Also, in contrast to shaving, waxing does not result in stubble, which can cause irritation. If you have extra sensitive skin, you can even go for a different kind of wax, such as hard or fruit waxes.
Because of all these pros of getting waxing done, it is surely the smarter and more efficient method of hair removal. If you are looking for high-quality, natural resin waxes, check out some of our products!
