I upgraded my part-wax-part-shave beauty regime to ALL WAX last Summer – and the commitment to the hairless cause couldn’t be a better one!
So read on ladies, I have the TOP 5 reason’s YOU need to follow suit and see the beauty technicians at NU Waxing Workshop…
1) YOU CANT CUT YOURSELF IF YOU WAX!
Let’s face it ladies – we live in the tropics, where the climate is so not mistake friendly and can cause infections in no time!
A razor, even if you’ve been using one for years, does have the tendency to nick the skin and cause minor cuts – especially around that delicate skin on the inner knee, underarms and groin area (awkward!). Now cuts can be a small, totally tolerable thing at first, but you add in the humidity of Hong Kong, the pollution and all the rubbing that your clothes do and that little knick can become inflamed, red, and infected within a few hours!
Unsightly – YES. Amateur looking – YES and just UNCOMFORTABLE!
Now the solution – WAXING! The initial sting of the treatment is nothing in comparison to an inflamed cut.
2) IT LAST’S LONGER
Everyday – honestly, EVERY DAY! That was once the consistency in which I needed to shave my legs in order to obtain perfection. And quite honestly, it just isn’t sustainable. 30min at NU Waxing Workshop however and I have 3 weeks of smoothness from that booking onwards! Now THAT is the kind’a time-frame I like to work with!
3) USING WAX HELPS DRAIN TOXINS FROM YOUR BODY
Now THAT’s a reason I bet isn’t a regular rebuttal to the whole Shave/Wax debate!
But listen to this – when you use wax to eliminate hair from your legs, you open a hole between lymph areas and the skin’s surface (done so via the hair follicle). During the process a type of light drainage may kick into action and what you will see (or the technician might) is a light liquid pooling on the skin. This is the ‘draining’ action. It stops once a damp cloth is applied, but is great therapy for your legs!
4) HAIR GROWS BACK THINNER
Thinner, lighter, consistent direction in terms of hair growth – these are some of the AWESOME advantages to waxing. You see, CONSISTENT waxing makes your hair follicles weaker and less visible, where as shaving can give the appearance of thicker hair all due to the blunt ends of the hair shaft as well as the hap-hazard direction of growth which reflects light in the most unflattering of ways.
5) SEE YA INGROWN HAIRS!
When you shave, you cut the hair off at skin level or just below it in a manner that blunts the end of the hair. Now when that hair starts to grow back, due to the bluntness, it can have trouble piercing the skins as it grows back and can become trapped under the skin, where it begins growing sideways or in circles. Waxing, however, removes the entire hair, right down to the root. The new hair growth is then thinner and tapered at the end, which means it is less likely to get trapped under the top layer of skin.
And THOSE are my top 5 reasons to wax – I’m all about the minimal time waxing takes, the health benefits it endures and the long term perfection it results in.
