Ladies, you know this feeling: the sharp, prickly feeling against your pants when you haven’t shaved in a few days…you walk around hoping you don’t have to expose your legs to anyone! Those of you who are in a relationship may be crossing your fingers that your partner doesn’t want any “action”, because you feel like Chewbacca! I have a longer-term solution for you: waxing.
One of the main complaints with shaving is that you’re working with sharp razor blades and nicks are not uncommon. Cutting yourself is never desirable, but it can be even worse in certain areas, such as the neck, under the arms and in the groin area.
Waxing lasts longer!
Since wax pulls the hair out by the root, it takes much longer for it to grow back. Even if you usually have to shave every day to keep growth down, waxing will give you up to two weeks of soft skin. This is also better for your skin, since it can become very irritated when you shave on a daily basis.
Hair grows back thinner than before!
A big advantage of waxing is that hair comes back thinner and lighter than it does with shaving. If you continue with this hair removal method long enough, you will eventually have barely noticeable hair in areas that have been waxed!
Wax is natural!
Waxing leaves the skin silky and smooth for quite a bit of time, because wax contains natural ingredients. While removing hair, wax simultaneously exfoliates the skin of the area you are waxing. Shaving doesn’t benefit your skin in any way and actually takes a very thin layer of skin off every time you shave.
People, winter is no excuse to be furry!
