Waxing in the Winter? It’s the Best Way to Keep Your Skin in Shape

With the cold weather outside, it’s more than tempting to forget about unwanted hair removal. After all, bikini weather is a long way away. But when you’re waxing, it’s important that you don’t miss out on any appointments, even when the weather is cold.

Here are the benefits of keeping up your waxing routine all through the colder months.

  • Long-lasting. Waxing works by removing hair deep in the root – the hair follicle. This gives you a longer-lasting result than shaving, which just cuts the surface, so the hair can grow back. Waxing lasts for several weeks. 
  • Exfoliating. Every time you have a professional waxing treatment, you get the extra benefit of exfoliating treatment. While the wax removes the unwanted hair, it also removes that top layer of dead skin cells. Exfoliating helps stimulate new skin cell production, as well as signaling your skin to produce more collagen proteins, which are both ways that skin stays healthy. 
  • Easier treatments. When you have waxing appointments regularly in the same area, it begins to weaken the follicles that produce unwanted hair. Without time in between to repair, these follicles start to produce thinner strands of hair that are less noticeable and easier to remove. If you skip several months, it gives these follicles more time to repair themselves and start growing thicker hairs again. As a result, when you keep up regular appointments, waxing gets easier every time. 
  • Ready for summer. It’s hard to think about summer now, but if you keep waxing all winter, you’ll already have smooth, silky soft skin without that unwanted hair and you’ll be ready to go as soon as it’s time to bring out that bikini!
