Waxing is often thought of as a summer beauty treatment. Once swimsuit season is over, many people never think of waxing again until they’re ready to break out the bikini again. However, waxing year-round provides some amazing benefits. Today we’ll discuss some of those benefits and show you why you should start waxing now to get ready for summer.
Interrupts Your Hair Growth Cycle
By removing hair at the root waxing causes some important changes to your hair growth cycle. When hair is removed at the root, over time it weakens the hair follicles. The result is slower hair regrowth and finer hair when it does start to regrow. This means that you’ll be able to go longer between sessions. It can take several sessions to begin to see this effect, so it’s best not to pause your waxing routine during the colder months. If you take a break from waxing you’ll lose all the previous season’s progress and have to start over from square one.
More Radiant Skin
Waxing removes more than just unwanted hair. As the wax is pulled away from your skin it also takes with it the dull outer layer of dead, dry skin cells. This gentle exfoliation is a bonus that reveals the softer, more supple skin underneath to give your complexion a more radiant glow.
Waxing is one of those beauty treatments that sometimes causes a little bit of pain. While the results are definitely worth it, the pain associated with waxing can be a deterrent for some. A well-trained esthetician uses techniques that minimize discomfort, but you can further reduce your pain by keeping up a regular waxing schedule. As we mentioned before waxing weakens the hair follicles over time, which results in the hair being easier to remove. This will make your waxing sessions much more comfortable.
