5 Reasons Why Shaving is so Last Year!

Waxing vs. Shaving- tale as old as time, which is better. It really comes down to your personal preference, but lets cover some of the pros and cons of both to see why shaving is out and waxing is the new black.

1. Convenience

So the thought of only needing a razor and some shaving cream may seem like the easiest way to get rid of unwanted hair. But think about how often you need to shave. Shaving is a short term plan that cuts the hair close to the skin’s surface and on average people shave every 2-4 days. Waxing is a semi-permanent hair removal process that removes hair from the root, keeping you hairless 1-3 weeks after waxing! Think of all that time in the shower that could be better spent on singing!

2. Time

This may not seem like the first thing that comes to mind when you are talking about time suckers in your life, but if you shave 3 times a week and spend an average of 10-12 minutes in the shower shaving, that is almost 30 hours a year you spend shaving! Think of those mornings you are in a rush and wanting to wear that cute sleeveless dress, and then remember that the one accessory that doesn’t match is your unsightly hair. If you waxed over the weekend, throw that dress on and you won’t even miss a beat!

3. Cost

You may think that a razor and shaving cream is the cheap way out, but girl, have you seen the price of a good razor?! And remember you are spending 30 hours a year using those expensive razors! It depends on the products you use, but for the amount of waxing you need to stay sleek and hair free, the costs can average out.

4. Skin Sensitivity

If you have sensitive skin, shaving can irritate and even cause rashes. The stubble, the flaky skin, and let’s not even get into the cuts and nicks! Shaving and reusing a razor several times breeds bacteria growth which can in turn cause inflammation and even infection in certain instances. Waxing leaves less risk of irritation for healthier, smoother skin.

5. Toxins

One benefit that can only come from waxing, it actually helps eliminate toxins from your skin. When waxing you open a hole between lymph areas and your skin’s surface via the hair follicle. This can actually helps drain toxins from your skin. And bonus, with continued waxing you can actually achieve removing hair permanently. With years of waxing consistently hair sometimes stops growing all together!

When it all boils down, waxing can be much more efficient and have long term benefits to your skin. If you are looking to simplify your beauty routine, time and time again waxing actually helps save you time and proves to be a smoother and healthier hair removal solution.
