Because Florida’s weather is so beautiful all year round, people end up showing a lot of skin. The only downside is that you end up investing a lot of time and effort in hair removal. Unwanted hair can pop in all sorts of places, including;
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
That’s a lot of ground to cover, and it can get exhausting. The varied locations can also make hair removal a challenge, as hair coarseness and skin laxity can differ from spot to spot. However, one hair removal technique is versatile enough to work just about everywhere: waxing.
What Is Waxing?
This popular and long-used hair removal technique employs wax (or a similar sticky substance) to remove body hair all the way from the root. A trained technician will apply a thin layer of wax directly onto a section of skin and hair. Then, they’ll quickly and firmly press a small piece of paper or cotton against the wax, before swiftly pulling the strip up in the opposite direction of hair growth.
What Makes Waxing the Best Choice?
While there are several alternatives to waxing available, many factors make this technique desirable.
A smooth shave is a fleeting thing. Many people start to feel stubbly within a day. Because wax removes the hair all the way to the root, your skin will stay bare and silky for three to six weeks.
Less Risk of Irritation
Leg hair grows quickly, which means people shave more. This leads to ingrown hairs, bumps, and persistent skin irritation. Other hair removal options like depilatory creams are loaded with abrasive and dangerous chemicals. Waxing isn’t foolproof, but it’s by far the best option.
High-tech hair removal options like electrolysis and laser hair removal may sound appealing, but they can be quite expensive. Waxing is a lot more feasible for many people, especially since you can go weeks between sessions.
Are There More Benefits to Waxing?
Long-term waxing disrupts hair growth by weakening hair follicles. Many people find that after consistent waxing, their hair grows much more sparsely. Waxing also removes dead skin cells along with hair, resulting in softer and healthier skin.
