When it comes to waxing, we think getting ‘summer-ready’ to bare our skin but it is important to wax all year round. Sugar Coated expert explains why.
For those of us who choose to remove hair via waxing, the autumn and winter months are typically a welcome break from that monthly chore of waxing. However, you may not know that it is actually important to stick to your waxing schedule throughout the colder months. Waxing every month throughout the entire year, not just during the bare-all summer months, is the secret to both less pain and better results.
Rosie Khandwala, founder of sugar waxing brand, Sugar Coated claims that 'Keeping in this routine you will start to notice less hair growth between sessions, as removing hair from the root with waxing results in finer and sparser hair growth', meaning when it comes to the following summer, you are not starting all over again.
Rosie adds that you should ‘Try and avoid shaving in between, this will result in hairs with coarser texture growing back and will interrupt the hair growth cycle.' So basically, if you have started waxing, do not stop or you will undo all your hard work!
Waxing reduces hair growth when performed at every four to five weeks. While shaving crops the hair at the skin’s surface, waxing pulls it out by the root, so it grows back softer, finer, and thinner. The more you wax, the less hair grows back. And it is not just hair removal that waxing helps with – Rosie adds that waxing can exfoliate the skin and help you achieve smooth skin all year round! 'Body waxing actually helps remove dead and dry skin cells from the top layer of the skin. Waxing certain areas of the body encourages a more even, supple skin tone' says Rosie.
