Benefits of Waxing

Waxing is the semi permanent way of removing the unwanted hair thus leaving the skin glowing. It removes the hair from the roots and hence new hair does not grow from 2 weeks to 8 weeks. Almost any area of the skin can be waxed like the eyebrows, face, bikini line, arms, legs, back and abdomen. If waxing is done regularly for many years, the hair may stop growing in that area gradually.

Waxing is done by applying wax on the skin thinly and evenly. Then a cloth strip or a paper strip is being placed on the wax and the cloth is pulled against the direction of the hair growth.

The other method waxing is where hot wax is applied on the skin. The wax then hardens as it is cooled and it can be easily removed without the help of the cloth. This is beneficial for those who have a sensitive skin. Waxing removes the hair and the dead skin cells thus leaving the skin smooth.

Various types of waxing are available like eyebrow waxing, bikini male genital waxing, arms and underarms waxing, feet waxing, hand waxing; back waxing, chest waxing and entire body waxing. Waxing is not allowed inside the ears and nose, eyelashes and eyelids, sole of the foot and palm of the hands. If waxing is done in these areas then it can lead to damaging effects. Waxing needs to be done by authorized professional so that accidents are avoided.

Benefits of waxing are:

Lasting smooth silky skin: Waxing removes the hair from the roots and the hair takes time to grow again. Thus it leaves a smooth and glowing skin for long duration of time.

No damage to the skin: - It doesn't cause cuts, discoloration or smelly skin as the ingredients used are safe and natural. Thus it doesn't damage the skin.

Fine and soft regrowth of hair: - The hair that grows after waxing is fine and soft and not rough or hard as in shaving.

Rejuvenate the skin:-Apart from removal of hair it can rejuvenate the skin by removing the dead skin cells. Thus it leaves the skin smooth and soft to touch.

Diminishing the growth of the hair: - If waxing is done regularly it reduces the growth of the hair and finally the growth on the skin stops. This is in contrast to shaving where the hair is removed from the surface of the skin and thus the small and pointed hair is observed on the skin and growth also occurs rapidly.
