For effective hair removal with a smooth skin and enhanced glow, most men turn to waxing – a quicker and hassle free way of getting rid of body hair. Though shaving also helps in hair removal, it can result in unwanted bumps on the skin and also grows back at a much faster rate. An added advantage is that the process of waxing also exfoliates the skin, by removing dead skin cells and leaving the area smoother.
So what are the top 5 reasons we found that men prefer waxing over shaving?
Waxing lasts longer: When you wax, it actually removes the entire hair from the root, resulting in hair-free skin for weeks. Shaving, on the other hand, has a very short-lived effect. As it only cuts down the hair, the results last for just a couple of days.
Waxing causes no irritation: Shaving often leads to razor bumps and rashes that look bad and itch. When done by professionals, waxing doesn’t hurt much and causes no irritation to your skin. Even if you have a sensitive skin, waxing won’t cause any harm – except that the waxed area remains red for a little time.
Waxing is stubble free: After shaving, the skin surface only remains smooth for a day. However, with waxing, you get to enjoy your smooth & hair free skin for as long as 2-3 weeks – there’s no need to deal with stubbles or poking surfaces.
Waxing results in finer hair growth: Shaving actually causes hair to grow back faster and thicker – which means that the longer you keep shaving, the frequency of hair growing back is going to increase. However, as waxing removes the entire hair from the follicle, completely new hair grows back. These new hairs grow thinner with continued waxing, and take the hair takes longer to grow back as well.
Waxing causes no scars: Shaving may be much faster than waxing, but it makes you prone to nicks and cuts. Waxing can be done quickly without the worry of cutting yourself and leaving scars.
