There are different reasons why people choose to do frequent body waxing. While there are plenty of benefits to getting a regular wax, one of the main concerns people have is the frequency in which they must wax. Of course, waxing lasts much longer than shaving, but people understandably want to maximize their wax as much as possible. Here are a few tips to help you make your next wax last longer.
Wax At The Right Time
One mistake many people make is not waxing when their hair is at the proper length. The length of each hair should be between ⅛” and ¼” long. When you visit a men’s waxing salon, be sure to ask them if your hair is the proper length in order to maximize your session. Alternatively, if you opt for doing your own wax at home, you just have to be certain your hair is at the right length and is uniform to get the best results and avoid patchiness.
Take Care of Your Skin
Wax has to adhere to your skin properly in order for it to be effective in pulling each hair from the root. You can take care of your skin by moisturizing it frequently and staying hydrated. If you have dry skin, the hair may actually break instead of getting pulled from the root.
Any men’s waxing salon will suggest exfoliating your skin at least one day before you have your waxing session. What many people don’t realize is the key to making your wax last longer is having healthy skin and hair to give the wax something to grab onto and pull out effectively.
Opt For Professional Waxing
Doing a complete body waxing at home may save you a few dollars initially, but you’ll have to wax much more often than if you went to a professional. In the long-run, you’ll actually save money by going to a professional men’s waxing salon since you won’t have to wax as often. A professional will also have the proper wax and materials to do a more thorough job than you could do at home, which will help maximize your wax.
