Waxing

border_03

Waxing by Face & BodyFacial or body hair in unwanted places can cause the Goddess in you to shy away… we want you to feel free to be the true Goddess you are!

Waxing is another effective way of removing unwanted hair, leaving your skin smooth, and relatively free of hair growth for up to four weeks.

How It Works

A sticky wax is spread on the area of skin where the unwanted hair is growing. A cloth strip is then applied over the wax and quickly pulled off, taking the hair root and dead skin cells with it. The wax can be warmed or may be applied cold. Waxing can be done at a salon or at home.

How Long It

Lasts 3 to 6 weeks

Pros

Waxing leaves the area smooth and is long lasting. Waxing kits are readily available in drugstores and grocery stores. Hair regrowth looks lighter and less noticeable than it is after other methods of hair removal, such as shaving.

Cons

Waxing by Face & BodyMany people mention that the biggest drawback to waxing is the pain when the hair is ripped out by the root. A person may notice temporary redness, inflammation, and bumps after waxing. Professional waxing is also expensive compared to other hair removal methods.

People with diabetes should avoid waxing because they are more susceptible to infection. Also, teens who use acne medications such as tretinoin and isotretinoin may want to skip the wax because those medicines make the skin more sensitive. Teens with moles or skin irritation from sunburn should also avoid waxing.

Tips

For waxing to work, hair should be at least 1/4 inch (about 6 millimetres) long, so skip shaving for a few weeks before waxing. Waxing works best on legs, bikini areas, and eyebrows.
