When wax is applied and stripped off, the outer layer of skin and dead flaky skin cells are removed along with the wax. The skin will be exfoliated and have an improved texture.
2 – Waxing is suitable for people with dry and sensitive skin
Unlike hair removal creams and shaving gels, the wax that we used for body waxing procedures does not contain extra ingredients that can cause skin irritation or allergies, hence it is mostly suitable for people with dry and sensitive skin.
3 – Hair grows back softer and thinner
Waxing tears hair off from the root, which causes the hair follicle to get weaker over time. Weak hair follicles produce softer and thinner hair. However do not expect dramatic change from a couple of appointments. It will take some time to see a substantial change.
4 – Waxing says goodbye to itching
Many people find that immediately post-shave they experience itching, and then as soon as regrowth starts, the itching ramps up again. With waxing, you will experience the brisk sting and a subsequent prickle, but then you should be itch-free for longer. What’s more, you won’t need to reach for any shaving products which irritate your skin or make the itchiness worse.
5 – Waxing reduces chances of skin discoloration
Did you know that repeated shaving leads to chronic skin inflammation The friction from the razor as well as the natural skin-to-skin friction give way to inflammation and discoloration. The latter happens because the skin reacts to inflammation by becoming thicker, and melanocytes (the pigment-making cells in the skin) become more active. This is a very common disadvantage of shaving that can be greatly relieved with waxing since the skin will be less exposed to repeated friction: only one appointment a month means less inflammation and even less chance of developing skin discoloration.
