5 Benefits of Waxing

Waxing Updated July 21, 2022
We love waxing, anywhere on the body! There are so many great benefits of regular waxing, but these are our 5 favourites right now. From smooth skin for longer periods, fast hair removal, no shaving rash, no itching and a great exfoliator!
 

1. Smooth skin for longer!

With regular waxing, your hairs will become finer and sparser over time. Wax removes hair from its roots, causing the hair follicle to get damaged and weaken each time. Waxing encourages hair to grow back slower compared to other hair removal methods. A consistent waxing routine means smooth skin for longer.
 

2. Fast and efficient

If you are shaving regularly, you could be wasting precious time each week (not to mention water in your shower!). Generally, we recommend scheduling your waxing appointments every 3, 4, 5 or 6 weeks (depending on your personal preference). This will allow enough time for your hair to reach the length needed before removal and will sync up your hairs in the same stage of the growth cycle over time – meaning smooth skin for longer! Less time shaving=more time for yourself. Your wax appointment is a quick method to remove all unwanted hair at once.
 

3. No more shaving rash!

We all know it… and all despise it too. The itching and rashes caused by shaving aren’t cute. Luckily, with waxing, you won’t have that skin irritation, inflammation or itching. Opt for our hot hard wax, called Sensitive Hot Wax, if you have sensitive skin or are prone to irritations for extra peace of mind.
 

4. Exfoliate your skin

A hidden secret of waxing is that it’s a great exfoliator! Wax grips to hairs and excess dead skin cells, leaving your body feeling silky smooth. We recommend forming a good skin exfoliating routine 2-3 times a week in between appointments to keep ingrown hairs at bay and hair follicles clear of dead skin. However, do not exfoliate 48hrs either side of your waxing appointment.
 

5. Great alternative to laser

Laser is a great method, but isn’t always offered for all skin & hair tones. Laser is attracted to pigment, so if you have lighter or thinner hairs it likely won’t be a great option for you. That’s where waxing comes in! Waxing can be done on all hair colours, and skin tones (and is an incredibly effective removal method – our favourite!). Trends come and go – especially for bikini or Brazilian hair removal! You might want that landing strip look one day, and waxing gives you the option!
