Throw Away Your Razor. Why Waxing is Better than Shaving

If you haven’t experienced smooth skin after a fresh wax, then you are missing out. Throw away your razor and jump into the waxing lifestyle. You will not be sorry you did. Here is why waxing is better than shaving!

MassageLuXe uses Repêchage® SeaSmooth Artisan Seaweed Wax, which is infused with select sea plants to soothe, heal, and calm the skin. Seaweed delivers vitamins, minerals, and trace elements to the skin for unparalleled smoothness. The wax is rich in zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, and vitamin E, which work together to reduce irritation and redness.

If that doesn’t convince you, maybe this will:

Less and Finer Regrowth of Your Hair

Our favorite benefit of waxing is the hair doesn’t grow back very quickly. Waxing removes the hair from the root. With shaving, the hair is cut off close to the skin’s surface. Even with a very close shave, this still leaves a considerable amount of hair just below the surface, ready to appear in a day or two.

As a result, with waxing you get an incredibly smooth finish. No post-shower stubble or missed areas! Even those who experience fast regrowth can expect to enjoy the benefits of waxing for three to four weeks. Better yet, when the hair regenerates and grows back, it does so with a finely tapered end. This end is finer and not stubbly, meaning that even while waiting for your next wax, your skin will not feel as hairy as it would post-shaving.

Goodbye Shaving Rash and Icky Itch

Those bumps that appear post-shave are in the rearview mirror. Shaving can cause irritation to the skin. With shaving, you are exposing the area to friction every few days, which causes irritation. Waxing allows your skin time to calm down, and with the proper waxing post-care, you will be smooth and bump-free.

Not only will you see the difference, but you will also feel the difference. After shaving, you often feel itchy because of the hair regrowth and stubble friction. Waxing will allow you to be itch-free for longer.

No Cuts or Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs are painful, unsightly, and take days to heal. At their worst, they can even become infected and could lead to scarring. The licensed estheticians at MassageLuXe know how to remove the wax strips in the best way to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. If you are prone to ingrown hairs, let us know during your consultation and skin analysis, and be sure to exfoliate and moisturize prior to your appointment.

Shaving is a chore, and you have enough on your plate. Pair your wax with a facial or a massage and treat yourself to smooth skin and a clear mind. We will see you soon!
