Why is Waxing Better than Shaving?

Shaving is often the go-to method for hair removal, but is it really the best option when it comes to hair removal? Waxing has gained a foothold in recent years over shaving because it offers so many benefits to the skin compared to shaving. Bare Cactus waxing services in Flower Mound shares the top seven reasons you should skip the razor and get waxed.

7 Reasons to Wax vs. Shaving

1. Thinner, sparser hair. Waxing removes hair from the root, so with each service, your hair grows back with a finer texture at a slower rate, making it less prickly between services.

2. Waxing results last longer than shaving. Shaving your legs is like getting a haircut-you’re simply trimming the hair. Waxing, however, pulls the hair up from the root, leaving your skin smooth for up to three weeks depending on how frequently you get waxed and how fast your hair grows.

3. No razor bumps. Nothing looks worse at the beach than thick, angry, red bumps along your bikini line. Waxing pampers the skin, avoiding the irritation caused by dragging a razor over your skin every other day. With waxing, ugly red shaving bumps become a thing of the past.

4. Natural exfoliation for smoother skin. Waxing naturally helps exfoliate the skin and when you add a pre-wax regimen to your routine, your skin will be smooth and fuzz-free.

5. No nicks or cuts. Forget the pain sharp objects can have when coming in contact with your skin. Waxing avoids the pain and the scarring of nicks and cuts that can occur with shaving. Plus, after a few visits, your skin becomes less sensitive to the sensation of waxing and the whole experience becomes nothing to fret.

6. Save time. There is nothing worse than getting a last-minute invite to the pool or an impromptu date night and you have to figure out how you’re going to find the time to shave your legs. With waxing, your almost always smooth, smooth, smooth. Your esthetician can work with you to develop a schedule that will make sure you will be silky soft at all the right moments.

7. Be fuzz-free everywhere (even places you can’t reach). There’s another reason to choose waxing over shaving: it’s less dangerous. Trying to contort your body like Cirque di Soleil contortionist to reach hair that grows in the most inconvenient of places can lead to neck cramps, leg cramps, slips, trips, and falls that no one really want to explain how it happened (not to mention that it probably will happen while your naked). Skip the potential embarrassment and the crick in your neck by getting waxed in all those hard-to-reach places that other people can see but you can’t. A waxing expert can make sure you look and feel smooth from every angle.
