Waxing Once a Month OR Shaving Daily?

A group of psychologists did a study to determine what factors improve a person’s happiness. They kept the study simple, focused on what would make you happier, more money or more time in your day? Overwhelmingly, people said that they would like more time in their day to make them happier.

Choosing waxing as your primary hair removal method has the benefit of saving you up to 5 hours in just one month. Sound too good to be true? Let’s break it down and let the facts speak for themselves. Waxing as your primary hair removal method is semi-permanent, meaning your hair will not grow back for 4 to 6 weeks. If shaving is your primary hair removal method, then you are probably spending at least 10 minutes shaving every day. Let’s do the math – 30 days x 10 minutes = 300 minutes per month, or 5 hours per month.

As a former daily shaver, I can attest that my shaving time was often rushed and stressful. Let’s be honest ladies, getting ready for the day, or a special occasion is time consuming. I love that I no longer need to shave after my bath or shower, and instead I have more time to focus on my hair and makeup.

Here are nine specific reasons why you should choose waxing as your primary hair removal method.

1. Waxing is Simi-Permanent

Waxing removes hairs from the root, meaning it will take longer for hairs to grow back. It usually take 4 to 6 weeks for hair to grow back from waxing, depending on the person. Conversely, shaving just cuts off the hair shaft. Hair is longer beneath the skin. It grows from the hair follicle deep in the dermis (layer of skin below the epidermis). That's the reason why after shaving, fuzz grows back so quickly.

2. After Waxing, Hairs May Not Grow Back

As mentioned, waxing pulls hairs out from the root. This weakens the hair follicles, and while hairs grow back, they are less strong. Overtime, if you wax on a regular basis, hairs may stop growing because the hair follicle is damaged or destroyed.

3. After Waxing, Hairs Grow Back Thinner

As noted above, waxing weakens the hair follicles and thus the hair that grows back in become much thinner. This also means they become easier to pull out which means the waxing procedure gets less painful.

4. Waxing is Smoother

Waxing produces a much smoother and clean look than the shaving method. This is due to the hair being pulled out from the root.

5. Waxing Exfoliates Your Skin

Waxing not only removes hair, it also removes dead skin cells. Waxing pulls away the dead skin cells leaving you with a brand-new layer of skin. Therefore, the body or face feels so smooth after waxing.

6. No Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a condition that develops when small areas of the skin become darker than the rest. These dark spots can appear on skin that has been shaved several times, depending on the person, his or her type of skin, and health condition. This will never happen with waxing.

7. No Razor Cuts or Burns

Razors can and will give you cuts on your skin. The biggest hazard to shaving is not a blade that is too sharp, but rather a blade that is too dull. A dull blade will cut you, but sadly that is when most people realize their blade is dull, after they are bleeding. You never have to worry about cuts with waxing.

Many people try to wax at home and end up burning themselves with wax that is too hot. You should always seek a hair removal specialist, like Spa Zarmina, for your waxing needs.

8. No Itching

After shaving, itchy legs, armpits, or pubic areas are a common problem. With waxing, we use high-quality nourishing waxes that are made to treat and prevent itching.

9. Waxing Gives You Better Results

Waxing doesn't require much time and you will get much better results. Shaving might be the easiest way out, but it's certainly not the best!
