When the weather forecast has you eyeing that cute summer dress you bought on the clearance rack last year, what to do? To shave or to wax? Talk about a dilemma.
Everybody agrees shaving is quick, easy and painless (except when you’re not careful… ouch!). But razor blades are very irritating to the skin and the results they yield are, at best, transitory. Indeed, because hair is cut at the surface of the skin, regrowth occurs quickly. Waxing, on the other hand, is much gentler to your skin, and because it removes the hair alongside its bulb, results are more durable. You can expect to see noticeable regrowth in 3 to 4 weeks. An additional perk of waxing is that, as hair is subjected to the procedure over a period of time, it becomes gradually thinner and less conspicuous. Nice!
Quite a few will be tempted, in the spirit of thrift, to undergo the waxing procedure at home. But are the risks are really worth the possible burns, irritations or other injuries one may inflict on our own clumsy self? We think not. Indeed, having a professional take care of the job is a smart move, especially in the case of hard-to-reach or sensitive areas, such as the bikini. Improper technique also risks deforming the hairs, which may promote ingrown hair growth.
As far as the wax itself is concerned, first understand that all are not created equal, far from it! Just have a look at our very own Gala range right here: http://www.dectro.com/en/depilatory-waxes. Creamy, semi-creamy, liquid, soft or hard, with or without fragrance, strips-based or free-flowing, there are many, many kinds to choose from, for every taste, every type of hair, every region and every skin type – enough to make your head spin! Another reason why you should definitely leave waxing to the pros!
