WHY YOU NEED TO KEEP WAXING IN THE WINTER
It’s starting to get chilly and your invitations to pool parties and beach outings are dwindling. It is, after all, winter. So you think you can give your body a break and start looking like a beastly bear? I don’t think so! We don’t agree with that and you’ll face some disastrous repercussions – trust me.
Just because it got cold that doesn’t exempt you from looking polished. If you are a consistent waxer you don’t get to stop waxing, ever.
You will interrupt the hair growth cycle if you suddenly stop waxing.
Unlike other hair removal techniques, waxing removes the hairs from their root which affects the hair follicles. As time passes the hair follicles start mending and if given more time can create the same hold to your hair. As opposed to the nature of waxing which eventually makes the growth sparser with time, putting this routine in a dormant phase can reverse this cycle. Following your regular waxing cycles will nullify the interruption of your body hair growth.
Your pain tolerance turns back to zero.
Do you remember how painful your first waxing session was? Yeah? Well, if you eliminate waxing in the winter months, the hair follicles become healed and regain its hold to the root just like before you began waxing. Leaving a huge gap in between your waxing sessions is a sure way to invite that memorable first-time wax back into your life. If you want to relive that experience, by all means, take your time Grizzly Bear, but it’s not recommended. Avoid unnecessary pain by waxing regularly.
You risk getting ingrown hairs more than ever.
It’s hard to believe that you would want to stay away from smooth shiny skin because it just feels that good, but I get it, your winter Netflix & Chill laziness kicks in. The thing is if you abruptly stop waxing you may cause more damage than you think. The ingrown hairs you may have tried to avoid will come back with the same thrust and even worse. Ingrown hairs are not going to stop growing because it’s winter, quit being lazy and keep on track with your waxing sessions.
Your skin will dry out in cold weather and waxing will hydrate it.
Cold weather leaves your skin dry and parched for moisturizer. Accumulation of dead skin cells is the reason your skin even gets flaky and malnourished. Regular exfoliation will keep the dead and flaky skin at bay replacing it with new and healthy cells. Waxing rejuvenates the skin by providing moisture and radiance.
You’ll feel uncomfortable and itchy.
It’s routine to wear thermals and leggings throughout winter and we needn’t mention how uncomfortable tight apparel can get if you don’t wax and let the hair grow. Your hair will get long, the clothing will hold it back, you’ll start to get ingrown hairs, and then begin scratching yourself. Waxing tackles the hairiness with minimal discomfort for more than a month. Don’t put yourself in a situation where you don’t need to be in.
