Shaving is one of those necessary actions both men and women have to take on a regular basis to maintain their desired appearance. Not many people actually like to shave, but it simply has to happen. However, shaving can also bring along several problematic effects on your skin no matter how careful you are. The more these problems become known and occur more frequently, the more male waxing seems like an attractive alternative. Here are some of the main problems shaving can cause.
Ingrown Hairs and Razor Burn
Every person’s skin is different, so the severity and frequency of developing ingrown hairs and razor burn can vary. When you shave, the razor cuts off the hair at the surface of the skin and leaves a sharp edge. The sharp edge will commonly get embedded under the skin as it begins growing again, which can cause some discomfort and those unsightly bumps we’ve all experienced. Depending on your skin tone, these ingrown hairs could be clearly visible under the skin. Shaving won’t be able to get rid of this appearance, so visiting a salon specializing in waxing for men in San Francisco is your best option.
Skin Irritation and Dryness
Shaving actually removes moisture from the skin, as well as part of the outermost layer of the skin designed to help retain the moisture. The result is dry and peeling skin no one likes to experience. Shaving does create an exfoliation effect, but unfortunately it happens too often, which is why many people experience skin irritation, constant peeling and sometimes redness following shaving sessions.
The process of shaving itself naturally leads to stubbly hair. The technique you use to shave sometimes plays a role, but the natural cutting of the hair to a sharp point makes the hair seem like it’s thicker and coarser when it grows back. Plus, it’s easy to get in a hurry and miss a couple spots when shaving, which creates an unattractive appearance when some hair grows back quicker in certain areas. A professional male waxing session can prevent stubbly hair and promote smoother and healthier looking skin.
Waxing Solves Problems Created By Shaving
In each of the problems created by shaving, waxing would not only achieve better results, but also prevent those problems from happening. Whether you need a full body waxing session or just some small areas on your face, the benefits are much greater than going through the constant shaving process.
