New Year, New You: 3 benefits waxing in the winter months

January 10, 2019

When it comes to maintaining grooming habits, every season has its own routine, and every season has its pros and cons on the effects of the body. Winter is especially known for not being a gentle time for your skin. The dry air and harsh winds can crack and damage your skin, so maintaining your grooming habits are even more of a priority. The winter is also a time where people trade in their shorts, sandals, and bikinis for long sleeves, coats, and boots. And any exposure of skin is covered so naturally, people stop shaving and waxing, or even stop their daily skin care routine altogether which could really jeopardize your skin’s health. Neglecting your skin during the winter months can have dire consequences. Due to the like of moisture in the air, your skin can become rough, chapped, or flaky and irritated.

So, needless to say, paying attention to your skin is as important during the coldest months as it is during summer or spring, even if we don't plan on showing the skin. Although the thought of waxing might not seem important in comparison to all those precautions, you will be surprised by how this hair removal method can contribute to your skin's health. The more time between waxes means more time for hair to return, which leads to more pain and discomfort for you. But there is more to waxing than just removing unsightly hair! Hair removal, especially when done with hard body waxes, as we do at Depil Brazil Waxing, can help your skin maintain the radiant, healthy look you worked so hard on during the summer.

Waxing not only removes the hair from the root, but it also has an exfoliating effect. When the wax is pulled from the targeted area, it also takes away dead skin cells and leaves a brand-new layer of skin. A buildup of dead skin cells won't allow the nutrients from moisturizers or nourishing body lotions to be absorbed by the skin and, given that winter is a season where the skin needs extra care, you'll need all the nutrients you can get.

Sticking to a winter skincare routine and taking advantage of the benefits of waxing is a great combination to maintain a smooth, glowing skin from the cold months to the beach days. Your waxing routine should also be combined with the right skincare products to leave your skin smooth and healthy during the winter season.

Waxing forms a consistent skin care routine
Taking care of your skin is a year-round necessity, not just something that's important during selected months. Your skin's needs are much more different in the middle of the winter than they are during the peak of the summer. Because of the lack of moisture in the air, you need to prioritize supplementing the moisture and hydration your skin requires. This is another positive benefit of waxing. The required care before, after and even between your wax appointments forces you to give your skin much needed extra attention during the cooler months. Waxing requires a commitment of weekly exfoliating and daily moisturizing and hydrating which creates healthy, smooth skin all year long. Cold weather, harsh winds, and dry indoor air can really dry out your skin and take a toll on its texture. Waxing not only removes the unwanted hair from the roots, but it also allows additional moisture and oil and penetrates your poor giving added hydration to your skin in your most delicate areas. The more often you wax, the more these healthy skin steps become a habit throughout the seasons. 

Waxing reduces hair growth
Because of the need to layer during the winter months, you will only start to recognize the damages of the season on your skin when it's too late. Even the body hair will become affected. The hair follicles on your body react in the same manner as those on your head. When you don’t properly care for your hair, your scalp becomes dry and your hair becomes flaky and brittle. The same goes for the hair on your legs, arms, and even intimate areas. Waxing will remove the hair at the root, which not only discourages future follicle growth but damages the follicle’s ability to grow strong new shafts of hair. This means that every time you wax, you will grow less hair back, and the hair that you do grow will be lighter and finer. Repeated waxing results in permanent hair removal, but if you stop waxing you give your follicles a chance to recover and you will have to repeat the process all over again.

Waxing keeps your confidence high
There’s no greater feeling than the touch of smooth, silky skin. You just feel good about yourself. When you wax, and you can enjoy the sexy, free feeling from unwanted stubble and dry skin. Waxing consistently gives you more self-confidence and makes you feel more comfortable in your own skin. Enjoy feeling good all year and keep up your routine. The added hair growth you acquire during the months you don’t wax isn’t going to necessarily add extra warmth from the cold, but you will indeed feel a little scuzzy and maybe even self-conscious. If you’re used to having smooth skin, letting your routine slip when it’s cold out is just going to make you feel like you have something to hide. Waxing during the winter will maintain and further your path towards smooth skin rather than setting you back. You’ll feel sexy, confident, and comfortable all season, and be totally prepared for any reason to bare it all!

The reality is, in order to get the smooth, glowy results you want from waxing, you need to establish a regular waxing routine and stick to it. Even in the winter. Not waxing for a few months just because you feel that you don’t need it will leave you back at square one in your goal of getting rid of unwanted hair. Now that you know how waxing can keep your skin healthy and radiant, go and schedule your waxing appointment for the winter season! Your skin will thank you when summer comes back!
