“Chillaxing” When Waxing!Submitted by Steven J Brown
There are so many methods to choose from when it comes to hair removal – they can be costly, complicated, a little painful and those that last longer.
What is the best option you ask? Waxing.
Granny Mouse Country House & Spa has some good reasons as to why you should wax. For those who are considering waxing for the first time, being surrounded by tranquility in the heart of the Midlands is the ideal spot to “chillax when you have your wax”.
When waxing, you get to eliminate ingrown hair which is unsightly and appears as red bumps. When shaving, you often “nick yourself”, leaving behind scars, especially when you are in a hurry or have a new razor.
However, when you wax you will experience way less damage to your skin thereby avoiding those battle scars.
Waxing also stops the amount of hair regrowth, and the time it takes to grow back. If you have waxed continuously for a good couple years, it takes up to 3 weeks to show the hair growth. But remember, this all depends on how much hair was growing before you started waxing. If you are on the hairier side, this will take a few more years than the average person to cut down the speed and amount of hair.
The average person’s hair will grow back progressively finer due to the fact that you are tearing the hair from the root and not the surface of the skin. Basically, the follicle is getting weaker and thus produces finer hair. Don’t expect your hair to not grow immediately as it does take time.
Waxing is also much safer than permanent removal as it has zero risks and little, or no, side effects.
Interestingly, your skin also gets a gentle exfoliation, stripping the stratum corneum, also known as the outermost layer of dead skin cells. A good tip – don’t exfoliate on your waxing day.
When getting a wax, there are many different types available, as you can choose soft body waxes for smaller areas, and other waxes for the larger areas. For the face, you can have threading done together with small wax strips and works like a bomb.
It’s definitely worth it to put up with a little discomfort to achieve the results.
If you have decided to get a wax, and it’s your first time, choose to have it done professionally. Our beauty professionals at Granny Mouse know exactly what to
do, every step of the way, with plenty of experience and knowing the correct techniques. Don’t put your skin at risk by possibly burning or being unable to pull off the strips by trying this at home.
