Are you team wax or team shave? Waxing is a wonderful option for both men and women in this day and age. This simple life choice can really improve your everyday life. Shaving can be an easy and quick option for removing unwanted body hair because it’s cheap and can be done from your own shower with a razor. On the other hand, waxing can be a little bit more expensive, but more time-efficient in the long run – along with many other benefits. When comparing pros and cons, and choosing what’s best for you and your skin, trust us here at Executive Spa & Massage! There is only one winner plain and simple – waxing!

Reasons why you should choose waxing over shaving:

1. No more accidental cuts

Razors and cuts are close friends. When shaving, it’s easy for your razor to slip due to the slippery conditions. Which can result in a nasty cut and eventually an ugly scar. Unintentional cuts on your skin aren’t fun, but they’re very likely to happen if you shave regularly. Waxing is just a 45 min trip to the spa once a month. Our professional waxing experts at Executive Spa & Massage will provide the best experience possible.

2. No more terrible itching

If you’ve ever shaved then you know what we’re talking about here. It’s ITCHY! This is a very common problem for women and men after shaving. With waxing, this is prevented by using high-quality and nourishing waxes like the ones used at Executive Spa & Massage.

3. Long-lasting results

What shaving basically does is to cut off the visible part of the hair that’s on the surface of your skin. Unfortunately, that hair showing is much larger than that. That’s the reason why after shaving, hair grows back quickly compared to waxing. Waxing actually removes the hair from the root, taking your hair longer to show on your skin – three to four weeks – since it has to grow back again.

4. Goodbye unwanted hairs

Since hairs are pulled out from the root when you wax, the hair follicles are weakened. When hair grows back, it’s less strong and it will continue to be weaker as you regularly wax. It may even cease to grow, which is awesome!

5. Hello thinner hairs

You already know that weakens the hair follicles, right? Now, this also makes your hairs start to grow much thinner. Also, hairs will become easier to pull out, which results in each trip becoming less and less painful!

6. Goodbye dead skin cells

Another benefit of waxing is that it also exfoliates your skin. Have you ever felt your skin after waxing? Much smoother! This is because when you pull out the wax from your skin, it takes away dead cells and leaves a brand-new layer of skin. Bonus!

7. Better results overall!

Even though shaving is faster than waxing, it won’t give you the long-term results that waxing will. On the other hand, waxing just takes a quick 45-minute trip to the spa once a month and you’ll get multiple benefits that will help you in the long run, and make it so worth it. Shaving might be the easiest way to get rid of hair fast, but it’s certainly not the best. However, waxing is the preferred option for healthy skin here at Executive Spa & Massage.
