Little Known Benefits of Facial Waxing
In the world of hair removal, there are many options available. In stores, you will find shelves filled with hair removal creams, home waxing kits, shaving creams and gels, and razors of all shapes and sizes. Why should you make a trip to the salon when you have all of this that you could use at home? Well, because salon waxing has benefits that you may not have thought of. Here are five little-known benefits of salon facial waxing that you should consider before reaching for something from the drugstore shelf.
Among all of the hair removal options, waxing is one of the safest. Shaving can leave your skin vulnerable to infection through the nicks and cuts the razor leaves behind, and some of those cuts could also leave behind scars. Hair removal creams and gels use harsh and toxic chemicals that can burn sensitive skin or cause rashes and irritation. Waxing poses none of those risks.
Most hair removal options can promise you no more than a few hours to a few days of hair-free skin. Hair removed at the surface by shaving or hair removal creams will regrow quickly resulting in stubble far too soon. Everyone’s hair growth cycle is a little different, but the average time for hair to regrow after waxing is about 6 weeks. That is because waxing removes hair below the surface right at the root.
Waxing doesn’t just remove unwanted hair. It also takes with it the top layer of dull, dead skin cells. Removing this buildup reveals the new softer skin underneath for a smoother and brighter complexion.
Less Mess and Pain
Home wax kits come at very budget-friendly prices and the convenience of at-home hair removal can be very tempting, but they simply can’t live up to their promises of easy salon results at home, and they can even be dangerous. Overheating wax can result in serious and painful burns. It’s better to trust the expert estheticians at the salon who have the professional training and techniques to give you a safe and virtually pain-free experience.
Harsh Odors and Allergic Reactions
The harsh chemicals in hair removal creams and gels come with harsh odors that can irritate nasal passages and cause headaches. Those with sensitivities to those harsh chemicals can end up with allergic reactions and irritating rashes. Wax is a natural substance without a lot of added ingredients so there are no irritating odors and a very low risk of allergies
