Many women struggle with unwanted facial hair. It is difficult to hide and makes applying a makeup finish a challenge. Most of us have tried different treatments – bleaching, creams, tweezing, and shaving – but none of them successfully solve the problem. Fortunately, there is an effective solution: facial waxing.
Bleaching can make darker hairs lighter but doesn’t remove hair. Once you apply makeup, bleached hair can show up against the darker makeup colors, and its presence makes it difficult to apply makeup with a smooth finish. Waxing removes hair completely, leaving a smooth surface for a perfect makeup application.
In many cases, creams just don’t work, or they leave your skin red and irritated, or worse, cause an allergic reaction. When performed by a professional esthetician, waxing effectively removes all hair in the treated area with minimal or no effects to your skin. In fact, waxing can improve your facial skin by exfoliating away dead skin cells and pollutants, stimulating collagen production and cell renewal.
Tweezing removes one hair at a time, which is time-consuming and exasperating. Waxing instantly removes all hair in the treated areas at once. For your brows, waxing can result in the same precision shaping as tweezing, since hair is only removed on areas covered with wax.
Shaving can cause irritation and cuts and only cuts hair at the surface, allowing hair to regrow quickly and sometimes appear even thicker. This is because shaving cuts hair at blunt angles, which makes each hair appear thicker upon regrowth. Waxing removes hair at the root, so hair follicles must regrow before a hair can regrow. This takes significantly longer than regrowth after a surface cut. When hair does regrow after waxing, it can be finer because the original follicle was removed. In fact, hair may stop regrowth in some areas that have been waxed regularly.
