When it comes to removing unwanted body hair, waxing beats out shaving every time.

There are many different methods of body hair removal to choose from. Shaving is, by far, the most commonly used method, but that doesn’t mean it’s the most effective method. In fact, when you compare waxing and shaving, waxing wins out every time, and for many different reasons. Here are the top five reasons to throw away your razor and starting waxing instead.

#1. You’ll get longer-lasting results.

One of the things that makes shaving so frustrating is how often you have to do it. Sure, it may only take 10 minutes or so to remove your unwanted hair with your razor, but when you consider the fact that you have to do it every day or at least every few days, that time really adds up. With waxing, you’ll be able to go weeks between appointments.

#2. Waxing becomes easier over time.

Surprisingly enough, the more you wax, the easier it gets. Of course, you’ll be better prepared for future appointments after you’ve been through the process a time or two, but after a while, your hair will actually start to grow back thinner, making it easier and less painful to pull out. Over time, the damage to the hair follicle might even prevent the hair from growing back at all!

#3. Your skin will feel smoother.

Because waxing pulls the hair follicle out by the root, it gives you a smoother outcome in the end. Plus, waxing also helps to exfoliate your skin by removing dead skin cells. That also contributes to the added smoothness that waxing provides.

#4. You’ll avoid cuts and razor burns.

Don’t get us wrong, waxing can be painful. But, under the hands of an experienced esthetician, it’s not quite as scary as you might think. However, shaving is not without pain and discomfort either. If you’re not careful, you could end up with cuts after you shave. Additionally, even if you take precautions, you’re likely to experience some level of razor burn, particularly in certain areas, like the bikini area.

#5. Waxing is more affordable than you might think.

A lot of people choose to shave rather than to wax because shaving is the cheapest hair removal option. However, as we’ve established, it takes a lot of time and doesn’t get you the best results. Plus, you have to replace razors frequently, and they aren’t exactly cheap. And, if you’re using other products, like shaving cream, it increases the cost even more. Waxing only has to be done about once a month, and even less often as your hair grows back thinner in the future. Dollar for dollar, waxing is certainly going to cost more than shaving, but it’s more affordable than you probably think, and it gets better results.
