When it comes to getting rid of unwanted hair on your body, one of the most effective and affordable methods you can choose is waxing. Waxing is suitable for use on almost any part of the body and is one of the oldest methods of hair removal. Not only can you visit a salon, but with a wide range of DIY kits on sale you can do it at home too. Waxing is becoming more and more popular not only among women, but also among men who want to remove unsightly body hair.
Why choose hair removal?
One of the main advantages of waxing over other hair removal methods is that regrowth takes quite a bit of time. Depending on the area of the body and the hair itself, it can take 3-6 weeks for hair to grow back. Also, if you wax regularly, the new growth will gradually start to slow down, allowing you to go longer between waxing. Some women who have been waxing for several years report growth times of up to 3 months.
The great thing about waxing is that it can be used on most areas of the body, no matter how big or small. The most common way to shave is probably the legs, but many people also choose this method to remove hair from the underarms, bikini line, back, chest, upper lips, and eyebrows.
Softer hair and smoother skin
One thing that women in particular find attractive about waxing is that when the hair grows back, it is much finer and softer than other hair removal methods. This is because most other methods cut the hair, leaving a rough edge, while waxing pulls the hair out at the root, which means entirely new hair has to grow. Waxing also leaves your skin smooth and hair-free, giving you the confidence to hold up your legs or wear sleeveless tops. The waxing process can also remove loose dead skin as it removes hair, giving the skin a healthy glow.
More men than ever are waxing
Waxing is, as I mentioned, totally unisex and these days more men than ever are showing interest in plucking unwanted body hair. The common areas that men have shaved are the back, a single eyebrow and occasionally the chest. However, there are also men who like to wax their legs, buttocks, and pubic areas as well. One benefit most men enjoy is that waxing can make muscles appear more defined! There are now salons dedicated to male grooming, as well as unisex salons.
