Cooler months are upon us, but that doesn’t mean your waxing should go into hibernation. We get it, why bother right? You’re bundling up and no one is going to even see your legs anyway. Well fast forward six months and think about that first pre-summer wax appointment. How much is that going to hurt if you stop waxing during the winter months? And that’s just one reason why you should keep waxing all year long. Read on for four other benefits of continuing your waxing routine, and we’ll see you in the salon.
1. Minimize Hair Growth
Truth? The more time between waxes means more time for hair to return. Waxing on a regular basis helps keep the hair from growing back, and the hair that does grow back is fine and easily removed.
While we can’t guarantee your waxed skin will look younger, but we do know waxing acts as an exfoliator keeping the top layer of dead skin continuously removed, and letting your new, smooth skin shine through. And waxing leaves your skin smooth and ready for those heavier winter moisturizers. Translation? Waxing makes it easier to keep your skin hydrated and exfoliated during the winter.
3. Prevent Ingrown Hairs
If you stop waxing and then start again, you’ll ruin everything you did to prevent ingrown hairs while you were waxing. The reality is if you aren’t waxing, you are shaving, and shaving significantly increases the likelihood that your hair will grow back blunted. When this happens, it is an invitation for painful ingrown hairs and other issues.
4. Feel Great
Why not feel sexy-smooth all year long? Let’s face it, when you are free of unwanted stubble, you just feel better and cleaner. It gives you more self-confidence, and you feel more comfortable. There is no reason to deprive yourself of feeling great when you are covered up in winter clothes. Enjoy feeling good all year long and keep up your routine.
5. No Pain, All Gain
Every time you wax, you are weakening the roots of your hair, and your skin recovers more quickly. So keeping up your waxing routine year-round doesn’t give your hair a chance to thicken up, causing waxing to become painful again.
