There are many benefits to both waxing and shaving but from the research and our own personal experience waxing seems to be a much better option. We’ll go through some of the many benefits to each below and why below, and let you form your own opinion. The only real benefits to shaving are that it can be less painful at the time and quicker and easier to manage yourself. That doesn’t mean that it’s without pain, have you ever had a shaving rash that looks like you were dragged along a rocky road? Of course you have. Waxing itself can hurt at first, but over time the pain will become less and you will grow accustomed to it.
Waxing Removes Your Dead Skin Cells
While you are being waxed, when they remove the hair they also remove dead and damaged skin cells. This process is crucial to maintaining the overall health of your skin.
It’s Quicker To Wax
At times, shaving may appear to be quicker but think about it a little more. When you are trying to shave around sensitive areas, how long does it take? A long time. Waxing around these areas is over quickly and easily.
You Won’t Cut Yourself With Dangerous Metal Objects
You definitely don’t have to worry about dangerous cuts and slices while you are being waxed. There are no old or rusty metal razor blades around that could be potentially hazardous. It’s also a lot safer for children if they aren’t exposed to razor blades in the bathroom or shower.
Waxing Lasts Longer
When you decide to wax an area, the hair is entirely removed. When you shave only the top of the hair is removed. This can result in a rash and ingrown hairs, then when you shave again the rash becomes worse. With longer and longer periods between waxing, you may be able to go as long as 4-5 weeks between appointments.
