Waxing

Waxing for your face, eyebrow shape, bikini line, underarms, legs, arms and the entire body.  Gentle, comfortable, prevents ingrown hair, and minimizes redness and irritation of skin.

How waxing is done:

In this method, wax is heated to allow it to be spread easily and evenly over the skin in the direction of hair growth. The hair becomes embedded in the wax, which cools and firms up holding the hair. The wax is then quickly pulled off in the opposite direction of the hair growth, pulling the hairs out of the follicles along with dead skin cells. Cold waxes are available usually attached to strips, which are patted onto the skin. Wax that is left on the skin has to be peeled or scratched off.

New hair growth in waxed areas is soft and fine. After repeated waxing, hair re-growth is less and eventually the hair never re-grows.

Benefits of waxing:

  • Hair in waxed areas does not grow back in three to eight weeks and when it does, it is soft and thin.
  • Hair is removed from the root rather than from surface, which does not create stubbles.
  • Removal is not permanent. While that is a contradiction, there are actually times when it is a boon that hair will grow back. If you use a permanent method of hair removal, a misshapen eyebrow may tease you every time you look in the mirror.
  • There are no chemicals involved and thus no reaction with waxing. At the most you will have a swollen area that is red for a few hours, but there's little or no danger that you'll be left with scars, sores or some other reaction.
  • Cost of waxing is minimal as compared to any of the permanent hair removal methods.
  • You can even do it at home on your own, you do not require an expert for it.

And of, course you can also get some hairy designs on your body customized - the upcoming trend after tattoos.

What side - effects can you get:

  • Painful when the strip is pulled from the skin.
  • Reddish swollen area, which should go away in a few hours.
  • Hair removal is not permanent.
  • When removed against the direction of hair growth, the wax strip may disturb hair follicles, causing hairs to begin to grow in different directions. This may cause hair growth to be more noticeable.

Waxing is not recommended for:

  • Areas of skin affected by pimples, moles or rashes or on skin that is irritated, chapped or suffering from sunburn.
  • Peeling, broken skin or varicose veins.
  • People suffering from diabetes or poor blood circulation as it might lead to infection.
  • People using certain medications such as Retin-A, Renova as their skin gets weakened and tearing is quite possible.

Few tips for best results:

  • Do not expose waxed area to sun for 24 hours to avoid darkening.
  • Avoid wearing tight clothing over freshly waxed areas to minimize the risk of irritation and ingrown hairs.
  • After 24-48 hours, exfoliate the skin with a Loofah sponge to prevent the dead skin from accumulating in areas such as the bikini line, upper thighs, underarms and calves.
  • If acne is a problem, wait until the skin has healed before hair waxing to avoid further irritation.

Waxing will never go out of style. People are experimenting on nose hairs also. To wax or not to wax isn't really the question anymore. The question now is: how far can you go??
