When it comes to ridding your body of unwanted hair, one of the most effective yet inexpensive methods you can choose is waxing. Waxing is suitable for use on just about any part of your body and is one of the oldest methods of hair removal. Not only can you visit a salon, but with a huge range of DIY kits for sale you can also do it at home. Waxing is increasingly popular not just with women, but also with men who want to remove unsightly body hair.
Why Choose Waxing?
One of the main advantages of waxing over other hair removal methods is that the re-growth takes quite a long time. Depending on the area of the body, and the hair itself it can take anywhere between 3 and 6 weeks for hair to regrow. In addition, if you wax on a regular basis the regrowth will gradually begin to slow down allowing you to leave longer periods between waxes. Some women who have been waxing for several years report regrowth 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 large or small. The mot common for of waxing is probably the legs, but many people also choose this method to remove hair from the armpits, bikini line, back, chest, upper lips and eyebrows.
Softer Hair & Smoother Skin
One thing that women in particular find appealing about waxing is that when the hair starts to grow back, it is much finer and smoother than with other hair removal methods. This is because most other methods slice the hair, leaving a raw edge whereas waxing pulls the hair out at the root meaning that totally new hair has to grow. Waxing also leaves the skin smooth and stubble free which gives you the confidence to bear your legs or wear sleeveless tops. The waxing process can also strip away loose dead skin as it removes hair which gives skin a healthy glow.
More Men Then Ever Are Waxing
Waxing is, as I have mentioned, totally unisex and these days there are more men than ever before showing an interest in waxing their unwanted body hair. The common areas that men have wax is the back, a mono-brow and occasionally the chest. However there are also men who like to wax their legs, buttocks and pubic areas waxed as well. One benefit that most men enjoy is that waxing can make muscles seem more defined! There are now salons dedicated to male grooming as well as unisex salons.
