How glorious it feels to have smooth legs! The unfortunate thing about shaving is you have to continue to do it on a very regular basis. Okay, it’s really not that big of a deal, right? You spend an extra 10-15 minutes getting ready. So what? Well, there’s also in-grown hairs (like the horribly embarrassing and painful ones on your bikini line?), and itching, dry skin from rubbing a sharp blade across your body a few times a week. When you remove the hair, unfortunately you’re also removing the top layer or two of skin. That can have its benefits; skin cell turnover accelerates temporarily, but it also dries out the skin, causing flaking and can even lead to infection in the tiny nicks. This year, try out a waxing.
What To Expect When Going In For A Waxing Appointment
Waxing can also be a tiny bit painful, but it helps that it only takes a second to recover. Also, waxing can remove an entire section of hair at once, leaving the area smooth as silk. Waxing is pretty cost-effective, but it’s not permanent. The hair is removed from the root, so regrowth is often softer and lighter. Waxing is best when done by a professional. Going the DIY route may result in a pretty hilarious event, including pep-talking yourself, false pulls, crying, and a whole lot of words that we’ll refrain from sharing.
When going in for a wax, know that the hairs you wish to have removed will need to be at least 1/8th an inch in length. If they’re shorter, the wax may not be able to lift them. Since hair grows in cycles, the first time you get waxed, the hair might seem to grow back faster, but it’s possible that the new hair you’re seeing wasn’t the hair that was waxed. After several sessions, you’ll notice that the hairs will begin to grow back softer and finer. The regrowth may also be slowed. That makes waxing a perfect choice for spring and summer time ease and a must before vacations!
