We all know how having hair in areas we don’t want them to grow on is quite frustrating. I’m sure everyone has tried at least one or two ways to remove unwanted hair, whether it’s in your armpit, private areas, legs, or any other body part. As a result, you might be familiar with waxing. It is one of the most effective methods of removing hair that will surely help you achieve that smooth and hairless skin, but everything comes with a price, so you’ll have to endure the waxing’s painful process.
For a long time, waxing has been the best method for most women. Today, metrosexual looks are getting more popular, that’s why men also consider waxing. Even with all the new technology created to remove hair, like lasers, waxing remains on top of the list. Why? Simply because this method removes the hair from the root, which will make your hair less thick as it grows, and it has a more prolonged effect than other hair removal methods. There are four different types of body waxing for men and women. We’ll be discussing them as well as their benefits.
Hard wax works by hardening your skin. It is less painful since you can remove it using your hands, no need for waxing strips. It is the thicker version of soft wax. This type of waxing is the best choice for sensitive spots, underarms, face, and bikini line.
Like any waxing, the hair is torn off from the roots, making the hair follicle weaker over time. Hair grows back progressively sparser and finer because of a more vulnerable hair follicle. Having less chance of ingrown hairs, so you don’t need to worry about this. However, genetics determines the growth rate, coarseness, and color of your hair, and proper exfoliation, along with moisturizing, can also help prevent ingrown hairs.
Also known as Soft Wax. To make this wax, you’ll need water, lemon, and sugar all heated up until it becomes a sticky substance. Once applied to the area, the soft wax doesn’t just adhere to your hair but also your skin. When the wax is pulled, your skin’s outermost top layer gets removed along with the hair. This method is indeed more painful than hard wax.
Sugaring wax is made from all-natural ingredients, which makes it easy to make even at home. It’s also perfect for all skin types. As a plus, the lemon is used to whiten dark areas and remove unwanted odors. Another benefit of using this type of waxing is that your skin will get gentle exfoliation. Your skin will feel smoother and brighter because the outermost layer gets removed.
A strip that will gently press against the skin is needed. It is the most effortless type of waxing. Apply it repeatedly in the same area to remove all hair.
Just like any other type of waxing, it may work on its very first application. However, you’ll need to repeat it to remove all the hair. Your hair will also take longer to regrow.
This wax has to be heated up, and it is applied to the body when melted. Hot waxing is the most used waxing process. After it is put on the skin, the wax is removed by being pulled in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
Since the wax is warm, it opens up the pores. Since it is pulled in the opposite direction, all hair from the roots gets removed. Hot wax is very advantageous for sensitive skin.
Nonetheless, no matter what type of waxing method you use, the results will vary depending on your hair and skin’s characteristics.
