Why Waxing Is The Best Hair Removing Method

Hair removal is something that has become unavoidable. The question that arises here is whether to wax, shave, thread, or go for laser hair removal treatment.

With so many options out there it is not uncommon to get confused, but we have tried and tested all methods for you and have concluded that waxing is the best way to go.

In this article we will discuss in detail why waxing is the most convenient way to get rid of unwanted hair on your body, so keep reading.

Removal of dead skin cells:

Waxing not only gets rid of unwanted hair on your body but also helps you get rid of dead skin cell.

When you wax it pulls off your dead skin cells and brings out a new layer of skin which is much healthier, smoother, and softer.


The results of waxing are much more long-lasting and effective than any other hair removal method.

Since with waxing hair are pulled out from the roots they are likely to grow back after a long time, on the other hand, shaving only cuts off the hair shaft and the hair grows back much faster.

Less Painful:

Threading and laser treatments are painful and can cause major stress while waxing, on the other hand, is less painful, and when done professionally does not hurt at all.

With regular waxing, the follicles of hair become so weak that you don’t even feel them getting pulled out of your skin. It is one of the reasons it is so widely popular.

Takes Less Time:

Waxing takes much less time than threading or laser treatment. These methods can take hours to get rid of your hair and can be most inconvenient and uncomfortable.

Image laying for hours to get your laser treatment done in a clinic or sitting to get your threading done. Waxing covers more ground and gets rid of hair in big patches from your body. Arms and leg waxing only takes approximately 10 minutes of your time.

Over Time Waxing Gets Rid of Hair Permanently:

With waxing the hair is pulled out from the roots, this makes the hair follicles weak, and hence, hair grow back much slower, over time these follicles get so damaged that they stop growing hair back. This method gets you rid of unwanted hair permanently.

Thinner Hair:

As discussed above, waxing pulls out hair from the follicles, so the hair starts to weaken and grow back much thinner.

They become very easy to pull which not only makes the whole waxing process quicker but also makes it painless.

Smoother Skin:

The removal of hair from their roots makes the skin very smooth, soft and gorgeous. Threading and shaving will not give you the same satisfaction, as threading is much slower and painful while shaving only cuts off the hair from the surface of skin which makes the hair grow much faster, so the final result is not as smooth as waxing.

No hyperpigmentation:

Waxing prevents hyperpigmentation on skin. For those of you who are unaware of hyperpigmentation, it is a skin condition that makes some areas of the skin darker than the rest of your body.

Shaving can cause appearance of these dark spots due to friction of razor on skin while this can be stopped with waxing.

No itching:

Shaving and Laser can cause major itching; however that is not the case with waxing.

The common problem areas legs, arms, armpits & pubic areas for women and men who shave but now with wax you can get rid of itching all together and enjoy a soft smooth skin.

No cuts or bruises

With waxing, you can now say bye-bye to all the cuts and bruises you may get from shaving and laser treatments. You do not have to fear about cutting yourself with a sharp razor or buring laser as waxing can save you from the harm.

Although the wax can be hot, the hair removal professionals are experts in handling it effectively. They make sure that it does not burn your skin at all.

Variety of Waxes Variety of Waxes

There are lots of different kinds and flavors of waxes available in the market. Now you can choose from endless types of good quality waxes that suit your skin and leave you looking radiant and beautiful.

There are fruit waxes, hot waxes, hard waxes, stripped waxes, scented waxes and waxes for sensitive, the options are endless. Make sure to visit a good salon that offers good quality waxing services.


Laser treatment can sure sound appealing and attractive way to go with, but its hefty on the pocket on the other hand waxing does not cost you an arm and a leg. It is the most affordable and convenient method that will give you long-lasting results.

Night-time Skincare Regimen

Did you know you could have beautiful skin while you are sleep? Yes, the expert opinion is that as you sleep at night your skin naturally heals itself so your nighttime skincare should be a priority.

The skincare products will make the natural repairing process much faster and effective. Here is the best way to set your nighttime regimen in order:


We are listing the sequence of skincare products that are essential a good night time regimen for healthy skin:


It is utmost important that you start your skincare routine with the removal of your makeup, dirt, or oil that may have gotten on your skin due to pollution and dust in the day.

We advise you use a good oil-based make-up remover as it is the most effective. The oil helps dissolve all your makeup and get rid of dirt on your skin without stripping your face of natural oils and making it dry.

Then use good cleansing foam or your regular cleanser to wash your face to get rid of any remaining makeup residue, sebum or dirt. This step is significant and should not be missed. It plays an important part in prepping your skin for the next step of this routine.


After washing, your face is now fresh and clean and ready for the next step. You should now apply a toner that suits your skin type. The toner balances the PH level of your skin, tightens your pores, and makes your skin more fresh and younger-looking.

 You can also add serums and skincare boosters with active ingredients into your night-time regimen. The active ingredients in these products help restore moisture in your skin and keep it hydrated.

If you are using more than one product, always follow the rule of applying these from thinnest to thickest.


Those tiny wrinkles that form on the corner of your eyes and dark circles do make you look old and drag down your confidence.

To avoid that it is crucial to start using good eye cream daily, the eye cream reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, protects the delicate area around the eye and keeps it hydrated.


If you have problematic skin and use dermatologist prescribed topical skin treatment creams or serums, this step is where you put them on your skin and let them absorb.

The prescription creams like retinols and antiaging infused with active ingredients have a better chance of working if used at night. The natural rejuvenating process of skin along with infusion of these active ingredients sure speeds up the healing process and leaves your skin looking flawless and supple.


­­­­­­­­­If you have dry skin you should introduce your skin to hydrating masks/gels or beauty oils.

These will make sure that the prescribed creams do not dry out your skin and make it look flaky in the morning. These are mild and a great way to give your skin an extra boost of hydration.  


­­­­­­­­­­The very last step is to use a night cream. The night cream is a little heavier and thicker than your day time moisturizer as it is designed to get absorbed in your skin throughout the night.

The nightcream creates a protective barrier on your face, does not let the moisture leave your skin, and maintains the water content, which is crucial for healing and rejuvenation.

Aftering following all these steps you are now ready for bed and can catch up on your beauty sleep while your skin repairs itself. To get healthy and model-like skin only using these products won’t be enough, you also need to consume a balanced diet, drink plenty of water and get regular facials.

Beginners Guide to Day-Time Skincare Routine

It is has become essential not just to wear trendy outfits and lots of makeup to look pretty these days but also your skin has to look flawless! With the abundance of products available for skincare in the market these days and many beauty gurus sharing their skincare routines, it can get quite intimidating and overwhelming. It’s hard to find the correct products for yourself let alone figure out which sequence or skincare routine to follow. We will try to ease that problem for you and list below a beginner’s guide to skincare to give you a basic understanding of a good skincare routine that works for everyone.

Why the sequence of your products matter?

The application order of skincare products is extremely important. Naturally, the skin is designed to keep everything out of your body but for your skincare products they must get absorbed in the skin to work their magic. This can only happen when these products are applied perfectly and in the correct order.

Step by Step Daytime Skincare Routine

Day time means being exposed to UV rays from sun, dirt, and pollution so it is best to follow a skincare routine to protect your skin from the harmful elements.


After you wake up in the morning, the first step you need to follow is by thoroughly washing your face with cold water. Then use a mild foam or creamy cleanser whichever suits your skin type, be cautious of using a harsh cleanser as it will strip your skin of natural oils and will make your face dry and dull.


This step may not be a necessity to everyone but it sure has its benefits, toning your face can serve a variety of different purposes. They balance out your skin’s PH level after using the cleanser. Face toners can provide vitamin derivatives and antioxidants to your skin and help improve the texture of the skin. Each type of toner serves a different purpose so be sure to select a toner that is designed for your needs.


Skincare concentrated serums are a nutrient-dense treatment that is specially formulated to address specific skin concerns. To add a suitable serum into your daytime regimen you first need to figure out what purpose you want to achieve with it. There are several types of beauty serums available for day and night time use which are not only beneficial for your skin but also help in neutralizing any damage. Apply the serum evenly on your face and let it penetrate your skin to be able to work.


One might think eye cream is only applied at night time but according to the dermatologists, it is vital to keep up the health of your eyelids during the day time as well. You need to keep the skin of your eyes and areas around it hydrated so it does not lose its laxity or experience loss of collagen. Applying a good eye cream will fight against the fine lines, dryness and the aging process around the eyes. It is best to include an eye cream with SPF during the daytime to further protect the delicate skin of your eyelids.


This step might not just be for everyone if you have a nice clean spot-free skin, you are lucky enough to skip this step and should jump right on to the next step in this skincare routine. Spot treatment creams can help kill bacteria from spreading from infected parts of your skin with spots to the clean parts and help reduce the appearance of spots with time. However, keep in mind most spot creams have benzoyl peroxide that is effective but can dry out your skin so only apply on the spots for the desired result.


Everyone, yes you read that right even the people with oily skin type need a good moisturizer in their skin regimen. Your skin must get the proper hydration it needs to stay healthy and keep the sun, dirt and harsh chemicals at a bay. The best way to get most out of your moisturizer is to apply it on the skin while it is still bit damp so it can easily penetrate in your skin and lock in the essential hydration your face needs. Never skip this step!


This might just the most essential steps in your routine so never become too lazy to apply a sunscreen with a good amount of SPF on your face and neck to prevent the damage from the sun. The sunscreen provides an effective barrier between your skin and the harmful UVA and UVB rays that are constantly trying to damage your skin.

Sunscreen should be the last and the most important step in your daytime skincare routine, it will not just protect your skin but with consistency and time, it will prevent your face from aging and forming any aging lines. Make sure to cover every inch of your face and neck evenly before applying it to your hands and any other exposed skin parts you might have for best results.

You must wait a few minutes in between all the above-mentioned steps as all it takes time for your skin to absorb all the active ingredients from the products. Be sure to consult a professional before adding any skincare products directly in your routine as every skin type is different and not every skincare product will suit you.
