Hair removal sure is a tedious process. There are so many options in the market, it gets tough to make the right choice. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back. While the market is filled with the weirdest of gizmos from painful epilators to chemical creams, we break it down for you in the simplest of ways.
The four broadest and the most common forms of hair removal include - waxing, shaving, tweezing and epilating. BIOSOFT is here to give you a closer look at what each entails and declare the winner for your skin.
.We all have (not so) fond memories of our first waxing experience, but times have changed! The advancements of the beauty industry have led to a wide range of waxing techniques and methods that surely make it our number one pick for hair removal. Waxing can be the best form of hair removal for your body hair - Hands, legs, stomach, back and even the bikini region. With waxing, you can enjoy a 3-5 week regrowth window, thereby increasing your waxing intervals. As it is suitable for all skin types it ultimately becomes the most efficient hair removal option.
We have all been there, done that, where we want to wear a chic outfit and we realize that we have missed our waxing appointment. That’s when shaving comes in handy. Shaving is surely efficient and easy for emergencies, but it has several shortcomings. For starters shaving doesn’t remove your hair from the root, rather just trims it from the surface level. Compared to waxing your hair regrows quicker, adding to your shaving appointments. When the hair starts to grow back, your skin does get prickly. On the other hand, shaving is also a home ground for in-grown hair. If you totally are void of ingrown hair, shaving might welcome them on your skin. Lastly, shaving can also get heavy on the pocket, as you have to replace your razor after every single use.
All of us have opted to tweeze your eyebrows in between appointments or plucking out the hair growing on your chin. While tweezing is simple, it isn’t always the most efficient method. While you tweeze your hair, you pluck at a single strand of hair with force. Your skin forms a pimple over the wounded area to repair it. These pimples are often painful. You can simply avoid these bumps and save yourself the pain by opting to wax.
Epilating is a form of hair removal where an epilator is used to remove hair by mechanically grasping multiple hair strands simultaneously and pulling them out. Epilation is essentially tweezing, but faster. Epilating can be painful to many and can be highly irritating to sensitive skin. The way in which epilators pull out hair is similar to waxing, although unlike waxing, they do not remove cells from the epithelium of the epidermis. This leads to your skin feeling rough and dry post epilating your skin. Epilating is also not the most suitable form of hair removal for all the parts of your body. It can be very painful epilating your bikini line or your inner thigh.
There you have it, a detailed guide to solve the mystery of several forms of hair removal. In every realm, waxing is the sole winner to provide soft, smooth and hairless skin. If you want to witness the efficiency of waxing, try BIOSOFT waxing solutions. It is your time now, to choose wisely.
