8 reasons why waxing is better than shaving

Updated: Nov 1, 2020

Waxing is the process which removes hair right off the roots giving out a smooth skin without any impurities. So just put off those razors and book a waxing appointment instead! In the following blog I'm going to put light on how waxing is better than shaving in 8 different ways.



Why Waxing ?

Waxing removes the whole hair right down to the root, when it grows back it is thinner and tapered so it is less likely to get trapped under the skin. So it's preferably the best option for hair removal.



How is waxing done?

The process of waxing starts by heating up the wax. After that, the wax is applied to the body. As soon as the wax forms a grip with the hair. The hair is pulled out leaving the skin soft and smooth.





Why to choose waxing over shaving?


#1 Wax discards dead cells.

The process of waxing doesn't only remove dead cells but also exfoliates the dead skin. Which allows the inner young cells to glow at its best. Waxing clears up clogged pores, giving your skin a healthier look and makes your skin look soft and smooth.


#2 Waxing causes hair to grow thinner.

Shaving makes your hair blunt and thick which can cause growth of ingrown hair while waxing causes hair removal right off the roots. The ingrown hair grown due to shaving can cause skin infections. That is why women and men prefer waxing instead of shaving.


#3 Waxing has long lasting results.

Manier times people think of opting to shave instead of waxing without considering the fact that shaving might be quick to perform but it loses its effectiveness as fast as it is performed. Waxing might require an appointment and comparatively take more time than shaving but it lasts for nearly a month. So result-oriented women usually choose waxing over shaving.


#4 Waxing doesn’t cause itching.

It’s no lie that shaving causes itching and might as well cause rashes due to the blade. Few times these rashes can even turn into allergies. So in such conditions, waxing is the finer option as it has no side effects or after effects on any skin type.

#5 Say no to cuts!

Every time we shave, there are high chances of getting cuts and nicks. Worse case, it can also cause bumps, blisters and pimples. Waxing also needs few precautions to be taken, but if you’re getting it done from a good salon, you just have to sit back and rest until your hair vanishes off your skin.

#6 Choose the wax that suits you best.

There are several types of waxes present in the market whereas shaving does not provide any other options. There are waxes with scents, moisturizing, hard body wax etc. The options are infinite. You can choose one from the varied options of waxes in the market that suits your skin best.


#7 Reduces Hyperpigmentation

The aggressive nature of shaving, whether it's with a razor or an electric shaver, can cause skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation which is the skin's way of replacing color to the damaged area. Basically, the skin pigments start gathering in the shaved area causing the area to look darker than the rest of the body. Waxing can save you from this issue. As waxing pulls off hair right from the roots it doesn't really have such effects.


#8 Faster, Improved results.

Shaving is fast to perform but only lasts upto 1 week whereas waxing may take 10 to 15 minutes extra to perform and lasts upto 3 to 4 weeks, that too without any side effects or harm to the skin. If you are thinking of shaving your legs every day then you are making a big mistake. It will make your skin dull, rough and dark. So, it’s better to go for waxing that will in fact enhance the skin tone and exfoliate dead skin cells.



Most of the best beauty ideas out there are the ones that have been around forever, but you just haven’t tried yet. So just go ahead and give it a try.
