    Default Is face waxing safe?

    Benefits of Waxing Facial Hair:

    Gets rid of all the hair

    You will love the results as waxing uproots all the hairs from a large section at once. It neither leaves you with patches of golden hair as in the case of bleach, nor with those stray hairs which you get after shaving.

    Reduced hair growth

    Yes, it is a method which can be used to slow down the hair growth. Actually, when you keep waxing over a period of months, you will notice that wax destroys your hair follicles. So, this finally leads to lighter and sparse hair growth. Plus, the hair growing back will finer and less coarse.

    Better than bleach

    Bleaching tends to be first choice to hide facial hair. Bu for those who have a lot of them, it can be really difficult to work with bleaching. Hence, if you are someone who suffers from allergy to bleach of bleaching doesnít fulfill the need as you have the coarse and dense hair, you will get better results with waxing.

    Safer than shaving

    The good thing about waxing is that it removes the hair follicle right from its root. On the contrary, shaving would just cut its head and makes it grow back thicker, harder and blacker. So why not go for wax instead which keep you hairless for longer? Plus, the hair which grows back is finer and thinner.

    Effects and results are longer lasting

    As stated when you waxing is better, it is better in terms of safety and results, both. While in case of shaving, the hair grows back within 3 to 4 days and in bleaching the ingrown hairs may start to show up within a week, waxing saves you for around 2 to 3 weeks easily. Hence, it is the best option for ladies who have a hectic work schedule. So, if you donít get much time for self-grooming, not to worry!

    Inexpensive solution

    It will not be a burden on your pocket. Being fairly inexpensive, it can be done from the comfort of your home as well. All you need to do is get the wax suitable for your needs, read the instructions carefully, or you can check out some tutorials on YouTube to start.

    Now coming to the other section, there are some disadvantages linked to this process too. Have a look:

    Painful

    Whether it is your first time or you go for it regularly, waxing your facial hair can be exceptionally painful. It can be more in the case of sensitive facial skin.

    Might not suit sensitive skin

    There can be some problems for the sensitive skin. As waxing can lead to redness and a lot of tender bumps on your skin, this might not be a good option. And if the skin is not treated right, it can lead to bacterial infections too.

    Infections

    As said earlier waxing can sometimes lead to irritation, skin burns, discolorations and even allergic infections. Moreover, in extreme cases one might experience ingrown hairs that might lead to whiteheads or boils filled with pus.

    It calls for proper aftercare

    If not for long, you need to take care of your freshly waxed skin for at least 24 hours after the procedure. It is not that tough though, but it will include avoiding soaps with harsh chemicals, abandoning perfumed moisturizers on the face, saying no to sun, etc.

    Overall, it is a good procedure to get rid of the unwanted facial hair. If you donít have sensitive skin, you can go for it. The best thing about waxing hair from face is that waxing is cost effective and anybody can do it. It is completely your choice you can do it on a salon or at the comfort of your own home. Just remember, it includes pulling the hair out and this can be little painful. However, if you wish to keep pain at bay, you must apply a numbing cream beforehand. You can try Dr. Numb which is a popular topical anesthetic cream with 5% lidocaine. When you apply it to the skin, it causes a numbing sensation to make the process pain-free and easy.

    So, now you can go for waxing and clear skin. Have some experiences with facial waxing to share? Do leave your stories and tips in the comment section below.

    With my experience in the field of makeup and cosmetics so far my best partner in waxing for clients has been Clamy face wax. This is a really great face wax. Comparatively, the effect and result is far better than any other used by me and wasn't wrong for skin in any manner.
