Show me a woman who does not like a fuzz free body. Since time immemorial women have craved for a smooth radiant skin devoid of hairs. Teddy bears are indeed lovable and cuddly but it’s repulsive when a woman shows off her leg with shaft of hair. Waxing is been used in Egypt since the time of Pharaoh whose queen was famous for fuzz-free glowing skin. Waxing is still popular in twenty first century though epilating is catching up fast and becoming more popular than waxing. Waxing is messy although the result lasts for about 4-6 weeks. Waxing is done by using either hot wax or cold wax. Hot wax leaves the skin supple and smooth after pulling off the shaft of hair. The exercise can be done at the comforts of one’s own home and the temperature control is dependent on your sensitivity of skin. Cold wax strips are quick and require no preparation time. The hands need to be warmed up before applying the cold wax. The hot wax is much more effective as it grabs the ingrown tiniest hair in comparison to cold wax. A hot shower bath is necessary to obtain the best results for waxing. Waxing is easy to use, inexpensive and last long with lighter and finer re-growth. A sticky residue on the skin post application can add to the cleanliness woes until cleaned properly. Warming up the wax will need some time and the procedure is painful as the hair gets pulled out.
Epilator on the other hand can be done in a few minutes’ notice and the effect of smooth supple skin lasts for 4-6 weeks. The same results as that of waxing are obtained using an electrical device. This is completely mess free and is ideal for touch ups. Epilators are one time investment and scores few points extra in epilator vs waxing.
