WHY IS WAXING BETTER THAN SHAVING? 

waxing edgware

The advantages of waxing are so significant that they warrant being discussed in a separate article on their own. Waxing is without a doubt one of the most well-liked at-home cosmetic procedures that we provide, and for good reason. Continue reading if you are interested in being bikini ready for the height of summer, or if you just like the smoothness that waxing provides.

WHY WAX?

Waxing is an excellent method for swiftly removing hair from most parts of the body in an inexpensive and risk-free manner. Waxing services for the upper lip, eyebrows, chin, underarms, arms, legs, and bikini regions are all available from the comfort of your own home.

TYPES OF WAXING 

There are two ways to wax: the strip wax and hot waxing technique/ 

STRIP WAX 

Strip wax has the consistency of liquid wax, and a disposable wooden spatula stick is used to spread it on in a very thin coating. After that, the hair is removed instantly by stroking a disposable strip on the area and then swiftly pulling the strip away.

HOT WAX 

When using hot wax, the wax is applied to the skin while it is still hot. On the skin, the wax is allowed to cool and solidify before being removed. After that, one corner of the wax is peeled up, and the remainder of the wax is removed off the skin directly. Because it helps to open the pores more before the strips are removed, hot waxing is more suited to parts of the body that are more sensitive.

THE ADVANTAGES OF WAXING ARE MANY, SO LET’S GET RIGHT INTO DISCUSSING THEM

1. LESS REGENERATION

One of the most obvious advantages of waxing is that it slows down the rate at which hair grows back after removal. When you wax, the hairs are removed from the root.

When shaving, the hairs are chopped off quite near to the surface of the skin. Even with a very tight shave, this still leaves a significant quantity of hair just below the surface, and it will start to emerge within the next day or two. There will be no post-shower stubble and no missed spots! Even those who have hair that grows back quickly should still be able to reap the advantages of waxing for three to four weeks.

2. FINE REGROWTH

Waxing removes hair directly from the follicle, where it grows. This indicates that when the hair regenerates and grows back, it will do so with an end that is more finely tapered than it was before. Because this end is finer and less stubbly than the other, it means that even when you are in between waxing sessions, your skin won’t feel as hairy as it would if you had just shaved it. After a certain amount of time, individual hairs may stop coming back completely, resulting in a thinner layer of hair on your head.

3. A WAXING SESSION IS COMPARABLE TO EXFOLIATING

Dryness, breakouts, and blemishes may all be caused by a buildup of dead skin cells and filth on the surface of the skin. Because of this, we need to exfoliate to get rid of it completely. All of this will be taken care of for you throughout the waxing process so you don’t have to worry about it. The waxing process leaves the treated area looking silky smooth, luminous, thoroughly clean, and revitalised.

4. LESS INGROWN HAIRS TO DEAL WITH

Ingrown hairs have the potential to be both painful and ugly. The worst thing that may happen is that they will get infected and cause scarring. When you go to a professional waxing expert, they will remove the wax strips in a technique that has been scientifically demonstrated to be the most effective in lowering the chance of ingrown hairs.

5. PUT AN END TO THAT ITCHY FEELING

After shaving, a lot of individuals discover that they instantly start itching, and then as soon as their facial hair begins to come back, the itching gets much worse. Waxing causes a sharp sting and a following prickling sensation, but thereafter you should have much less itching for a longer period. In addition to this, there will be no need for you to go for any shaving products that are known to irritate your skin or make the itching seem even worse.

6. NO MORE CUTS FROM THE RAZOR!

Even if you’ve been shaving your legs for the last twenty years, the razor may still manage to cut your ankle. It should not come as a surprise given that a nice lather is required for a clean shave, which implies that you, your hands, and the razor should all be slippery.

When you visit Touch & Glow for your waxing service, there is no risk of getting nicks, cuts, or any other kind of skin injury. Schedule your appointment today and we would be happy to guide you with a personalised waxing treatment
