5 Reasons To Ditch The Razor

[:en]Girls, summer is here and whilst we’re enjoying the junks and beaches and pool parties, there is nothing worse than the groan from the bathroom when we realise there is a small forest growing on our legs. Tactically planning when to shave is a pain that we’ve long come accustomed to, but after too many years, and the odd razor cut here and there (damn you knees), we’ve decided to ditch the razor. Here’s why…

No more shaving bumps

One of the biggest problems with shaving is the spreading of bacteria. Since most of us use our razors for multiple areas of our bodies, the dead skin and bacteria is then spread around which leads to rashes, bumps and all other kinds of unpleasantness. When you wax, everything is sterile and used once so no matter where you want to remove hair, silky smooth is the only thing you can expect.

Time is money

Unlike shaving which -for the dedicated- is a daily task, threading and waxing keeps you smooth for much longer! Waxing and threading tends to last between 3-6 weeks depending on your hair growth rate. Since waxing and threading pulls out your hair from the roots opposed to shaving which merely cuts the hair where your skin ends. Goodbye 5 o’clock shadow, hello gorgeous smooth skin.

Perfect for sensitive skin

Chemicals in the balm around razors as well as shaving cream for those fancy enough, can trigger sensitive skin. Threading is pure cotton string and therefore there are no chemicals involved at all. As for waxing, we know that wax has certain amount of chemicals but most waxing specialists such as Lavar, or Nude Boutique use lavender, strawberry or chocolate infused wax. Not only does this make the wax smell nice, but its also used to minimise pain and sooth skin.

Hair grows finer after waxing

Removing your hair with waxing will make the hair grows thinner and lighter. Hair follicles will become weaker and less viable as you remove the hair from the root waxes. This method of hair body removal will make you feel relieved with lighter skin. Not only this but after the first few times of waxing you’ll really notice a difference in how your hair grows back, and trust us, once you notice the difference, you’ll never pick up a razor again.

No hair, no problem.

As mentioned before, waxing removes hair from the roots, which means the hair will grow finer but after doing waxing over a certain period of time the weak hair follicles will result in the hair never grow back. Meaning that you’ll never have to book an appointment, pick up a razor at all, ever again. Some of us can only dream of such bliss at this moment though…
