Every woman wants beautiful, delicate, and smooth skin. But while shaving makes it so for only a day or two, and the popular laser hair removal is too expensive, there is an alternative that will quickly and easily achieve smooth skin for longer: waxing!
What is waxing?
Waxing is a process in which a specially created product is applied to the skin and hair, which is then removed by plucking the hair from the root. The result is smooth skin for a longer time.
Waxing originates from Egypt. It is known that in 1150 BC. the bodies of the women in the harem of Ramses III were smooth and hairless. It is possible that waxing was practiced even earlier in Egypt, perhaps 3000 BC.
Waxing can be used on any part of the body.
Waxing is quick, affordable, and safe hair removal method for most areas of the body. Removing hair with waxing is longer lasting than shaving, which is the usual alternative. While you reach for the razor again in a day or two, with wax you can stay hairless for up to six weeks.
Benefits of waxing
If you are wondering whether to undergo a wax mask, here is what makes it so effective and preferred:
It is more durable
The most famous benefit of a wax mask is that the hair does not grow very fast after it. This method removes hair from the root. When shaving, the hair is cut close to the level of the skin. Even with a very close shave, it still leaves a significant amount of hair just below the surface, ready to appear after a day or two.
Hair grows finer
During waxing, the hair is removed from the follicle. This means that when they start growing again, they will have a finer edge than if they were shaved. Thus, the hair will look finer than when shaving.
Less ingrown hairs
Shaving can be catastrophic for many people in terms of ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs can be painful and look ugly. With waxing the risk of ingrown hairs is significantly reduced. If you are particularly prone to ingrown hairs, inform the expert, and also make sure that you exfoliate and moisturize well, two days after the procedure.
Which areas can you treat with waxing?
Waxing can be applied to almost all areas of the body, to both men and women. The most commonly treated areas are:
– Breasts (men);
– Intimate areas (for women);
After epilation, the skin may be irritated and sensitive. This will take up to a day or two, but until that happens, moisturize the well-treated area.
