Each process has its benefits (obviously we have a particular preference), but let’s take a look at why waxing beats shaving when it comes to comparing each process…
Waxing removes dead skin cells
Waxing not only removes hair, it also exfoliates your skin. When you pull out the wax from your skin, it takes away dead cells and leaves a brand-new layer of skin. This is why the body or face feels so smooth after waxing.
Shaving doesn’t entirely remove hair, it just cuts off the hair shaft, which is only the visible part of the hair on the surface of the skin. But hairs are much longer than that; they grow 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, in just one-week hairs are visible again. On the other hand, waxing does remove hairs from the root; therefore, it takes a lot longer for hairs to grow back!
Hairs might cease to grow
Waxing mercilessly pulls hairs out from the root; this action weakens the hair follicles, and therefore, hairs grow back but are less strong. Over time, if you wax on a regular basis, hairs might actually stop growing because the hair follicle is too damaged to work properly.
Hairs grow back thinner
Given that waxing weakens the hair follicles, sometimes hairs start to grow much thinner, and they become easier to pull out – the procedure even gets less painful!
The final result after a waxing session is much smoother and attractive than any other kind of shaving method, especially because the hair is pulled out from the root.
No more itching
Itchy legs, armpits, or pubic areas are a common problem for women and men even right after shaving. With waxing, this could be prevented by using high-quality, nourishing waxes that are made to treat and prevent said side effects.
No more cuts
You can say goodbye to razors and unintentional cuts on your skin. When shaving, you can seriously harm yourself when the blades are too sharp or if you’re not paying attention to what you’re doing.
Fast yet better results
We won’t lie, shaving will always be the fastest way to remove hair, and you can get hairless legs, for example, in just ten minutes. However, waxing doesn’t require much time either, and for the little extra time you’re spending, you will get much better results.
