With summer just around the corner, waxing tends to be the number one priority in many skincare routines. Removing body hair throughout the warmer months is essential upkeep for many people, but can often become an afterthought once fall and winter roll around. We’re here to say that you shouldn’t ditch your routine waxes, and instead to keep it up year-long!

If you’re still in need of some convincing, here are 4 benefits that come along with routine waxing:

1. Slower Hair Growth Year-Round

Since waxing weakens hair follicles, hair growth tends to slow the more you wax. By taking time off over the winter months, the benefits of slowed hair growth fade away and hair will eventually return to its natural growth cycles. When you take the time to schedule your monthly waxes all year, you’re guaranteeing that your hair will grow back thinner and lighter (and stay that way).

2. Waxing Gets Easier

Skipping out on your winter waxes may sound like a great idea in theory, but you may be doing more harm than good. Going months on end without a wax allows hair follicles to strengthen and return to their natural state.

This means that once spring rolls around and you’re ready to book your next wax, it will feel like you’re waxing for the very first time! Sticking to your routine waxes ensures that your hair follicles weaken, and over time makes your wax experience easier and more comfortable.

3. Exfoliate and Soften Skin

During the winter, skin often gets dehydrated from the harsh winds and cold temperatures. What better way to exfoliate than with a wax? You’ll remove the top layers of dead skin along with any unwanted body hair revealing smooth skin that’s ready for any occasion.

4. Prevent Ingrown Hairs

Wearing pants for months on end has more than just an effect on your mood – it also causes friction against your skin which can result in ingrown hairs more frequently than in summer months. A combination of exfoliation and waxing is your best bet to keep ingrown hairs at bay. We love pairing our Skin Perfecting Body Scrub with a dry brushing session to prep skin and release any ingrown hairs before a wax.
