As the cold months approach, we start to put away our shorts, bikinis, and summer dresses and begin to fill the closet with hooded jackets, boots, and sweaters. Why? Because we’ve got a good reason; none of our skin is going to be on show and it's the perfect argument to stop waxing. But on the contrary, there is more to waxing than just removing fuzz!
So here’s a quick breakdown of why you should keep waxing even during the winter
The primary goal most people have for waxing is to eliminate or substantially reduce hair growth in certain areas of the body. By waxing only in the warmer months, it is interrupting the progress of hair removal through waxing
. The reason for this is that our hair grows in three stages. Our hair either is growing, lies dormant, or is falling out on its own. Depending on the length of your hairs, and whether they are exposed, near the surface of the skin, or far beneath the surface, it may take several treatments to obtain the results you want. By continuing to wax in the winter, you are giving yourself a chance to take care of those stubborn hairs before summer returns
In the winter, the cold, dry, and heated air bombards our skin and cause dryness, flaking and tightening. When you wax, it provides your damaged skin with many benefits. First, it exfoliates dead skin. Secondly, it encourages new skin growth at the cellular level, and finally, it increases blood circulation to the surface of the skin. These benefits combine to help soften and moisturize your skin and eliminate the itchiness, leaving your skin healthy and beautiful.
In the winter, there are times when we want to look good in a skirt. It may be a holiday party, a night out with friends, or just a desire to feel cleaner and more comfortable. So your temporary solution would be your razor, right? But here’s where you’re wrong. By using a razor, you ruin the effect of the waxing you did throughout the summer, and more importantly, shaving significantly increases the likelihood of your hair being blunted. When this happens, it’s open season for painful ingrown hairs.
