What is Waxing


Waxing is a process of hair removal from the root which is covered by a sticky substance such as wax. Wax is adhered to the body hair and then removed by pulling out the hair from the follicle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed and it generally takes about 4 to 6 weeks to regrow, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to a different human growth cycle.




Benefits of Waxing


  • Improved Skin Health : Waxing naturally involves exfoliation process that removes dead skin cells from the top skin layer that results in smoother and even skin texture.
  • Longer Lasting Results: Hair is removed from the root
  • Improved Regrowth : After wax the hair will grow back finer more sparse and much easier to maintain. Chances of developing ingrown hairs also decrease.
  • No skin Irritation or Allergies : Professional waxing products usually do not contain ingrediants that cause irritations or allergic reactions.
  • Your skin is less prone to inflammation

At Home remedies


  • A few over-the-counter (OTC) and home remedies can relieve bumps and possibly prevent ingrown hairs. Here are a few to try.
  • OTC remedies:
  • Exfoliate with salicylic acid or glycolic acid. These products will help keep your hair follicles open, so the hairs don’t get trapped again. Don’t use these products if you already have an ingrown hair, because they could irritate the area.
  • Use a benzoyl peroxide cream. This ingredient found in OTC acne medicines can help dry up the affected area and reduce redness.
  • Moisturize. A non-greasy moisturizer can get rid of dead skin cells, which often clog follicles and contribute to ingrown hairs.
  • Tea tree oil kills bacteria and brings down swelling. It’s sometimes used to treat acne, and it may also work for ingrown hairs. Mix the oil with water to dilute it, and apply using a cotton ball.
  • Sugar is a natural exfoliator. Mix it with olive oil or honey to moisturize the skin and kill bacteria. Apply the paste in a circular motion, and then rinse with warm water.
•Baking soda helps to exfoliate and bring down inflammation in the skin. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 cup of water. Use a cotton ball to apply it to your skin, and then rinse with cold water.
