Winter is in full-swing here in the Midwest and many of us are dreaming about the beaches and bikinis of summer! Bundling up under bulky layers usually leads to becoming less invested in our hair-removal routines but if you are tempted to switch to shaving or adding a hairy extra layer of warmth this year, you could be compromising the health of your skin. Read on to discover how waxing, even in the winter, keeps skin healthy and hydrated while helping beat the winter blues!

Dry Skin
Winter air is dry and cold, which can cause skin cells to dehydrate and leave our skin itchy and rough. Waxing can help combat dry skin by removing old skin cells along with the hair. This light exfoliation leaves skin soft and helps keep moisture from escaping too quickly!

Stubble and In-Grown Hair
During the bundled-up winter months, many women skip waxing and turn to shaving. Unfortunately, shaving often leads to many unwanted skin issues. Unlike waxing, shaving only removes the hair at the surface of the skin, causing hair to regrow much more quickly. Shaving irritates already dry skin and the fast regrowth can cause the skin to itch and become inflamed.

With waxing, the hair shaft is removed from below the surface of the skin and extends the amount of time between regrowth! You can also reduce the occurrence of ingrown hairs because waxing effectively removes hair with the direction of natural hair growth. Opting to receive waxing services instead of shaving will leave you with healthier, smoother skin while increasing the time between hair removal treatments!
