Waxing is a quick, easy, and economical approach to get rid of unwanted body hair. However, there are so many different types of body wax that it can be difficult to know which one to apply on which portion of the body. Furthermore, if this is your first time waxing, hearing the salon jargon in Bugis or Tanjong Pagar at your first session can be intimidating. Aside from waxing services, there are other hair removal solutions that may be used at home for a quick fix. Is waxing, however, an effective and long-lasting method of hair removal? Continue reading to find out more!


How Do We Use Hair Removal Wax?

Using hair removal wax to get rid of unwanted hair is a fast and easy approach to get smooth skin and it also has other benefits. In most cases, waxing just requires that you apply it in the direction that hair grows. Always apply wax with the grain of the skin, whether using strips or a stripless wax. Always use the strip in the same direction while applying it. Though it may seem counterintuitive, putting wax to a surface that has damp hair isn't the best idea. You should instead dry your hair while shaping it into the right style to set the stage for your overall appearance. It is possible to apply the wax once the hair has dried completely. You should research the various waxes available before settling on one as your standard method.


Wax Types for Getting Rid of Hair

Do you consider yourself a hair removal connoisseur? Since professional waxes are used to get rid of hair, they need to have the right mix of ingredients to do all of these things. Wax types can be different from one product to the next depending on what part of the body they are meant to treat.

Hard Wax

Most of the time, hard body wax is used on small, sensitive areas like the upper lip, underarms, and bikini line. This kind of body wax is used while the skin is still warm. It is left to cool and harden, and then it is pulled off in the opposite direction of hair growth. It's good that hard wax doesn't stick to the skin. Most of the time, it hurts less than using soft body wax, and you can do it more than once without hurting your skin.

Soft Wax

Soft waxing, which is sometimes called "strip waxing," is done by spreading a thin layer of warm body wax over the skin. People often say this about the arms, legs, and other larger body parts. With a wooden stick or a roller, it is put on the skin right away. Then, a strip of fabric is put over the area and peeled off to remove the hair. Even the smallest, finest hairs can be removed with soft types of wax, leaving the skin smooth. But you shouldn't use this body wax more than once in a single session on the same spot. Skin cells will tear if you do this, which can lead to bleeding and other injuries.

Fruit Wax

Fruit body wax works just like regular body wax and is gentle enough for skin that is sensitive. Fruit extracts, like those from berries and plums, give these types of wax a lot of antioxidants and vitamins that are good for the skin. Also, they can cost more than regular soft body wax because they are better for your skin. The good thing is that they won't leave any marks, and it's also good for your skin.

Sugar Wax

Lemon juice, sugar and hot water have always been used to make sugar wax. Sugar removes hair from the root like soft and hard body wax, but it is made from natural ingredients and can be used on people with sensitive skin. Hard body wax sticks to the skin, but sugar wax doesn't. Only hair sticks to it. This means that it won't hurt your skin if you put it on and take it off a lot. It can be used on any part of the body and is a natural alternative to other types of wax. Remember that the gel will only attach to hair that is at least a quarter of an inch long before you go to the salon or try it at home.

Chocolate Wax

Chocolate wax is another popular option, and most salons offer it. It takes advantage of the fact that chocolate is good for your skin because it has antioxidants and is less irritating than other body waxes. Chocolate body wax is made of glycerine and oils like soy and almond. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that make it the best choice for skin that gets red easily. This type of wax usually costs more than others, but it's good for your skin and is usually worth it.


The Difference Between Hair Removal Wax & Hair Removal Cream

Creams and wax are two methods for removing hair that function in distinct ways. Certain chemicals in hair removal lotions break down the hair shaft, making it easier to remove unwanted hair. However, unlike waxing, depilatory treatments do not tear hair out by the roots. Hair removal lotions are said to be the quickest and least painful approach to remove unwanted body hair. Simply apply the cream to a specific area, wait a few minutes, and then remove it according to the guidelines. Before applying a depilatory lotion to your entire body, test it on a small patch of skin first.

Waxing, on the other hand, is a method of removing hair by applying wax to your skin and pulling it off, which removes hair from the roots, and it is an effective method of removing unwanted hair since it removes practically all of the hair in the waxed area.


Hair Me Out: Make Your Own Hair Removal Wax in 5 Steps!

We understand. Everyone gets lazy sometimes, so why go out to get waxed when you can make your own hair removal wax at home? Follow the steps below and your skin will be smooth in no time!

How to make your own hair removal wax and have it at home:

1. Get the things you need: wax, a pot, a wooden spoon, strips of cloth or muslin, and a tool for applying the wax (such as a popsicle stick). Put the wax in the pot and turn the heat to medium. Slowly stir the wax with the wooden spoon until it is all melted. 2. Take the pot off the stove and let it cool until it reaches 135°F. This is important because if it's too hot, it could burn or blister your skin when you put it on. 3. Cut your strips of cloth into smaller pieces that are easier to work with. You can make them any width you want, but make sure you have enough for each area you want to treat.

4. Dip your applicator into the melted wax and apply it gently to your skin in the direction of hair growth. Make sure there is an even layer of wax only where you want to remove hair. This will keep dead skin cells from sticking to places like your face or chest when you pull the wax strip off later. 5. Put one of the pre-cut strips on top of the layer of wax you just put on, and press down hard with your hands to make sure it sticks to your skin. Make sure to pull the strip off quickly against the direction of hair growth while keeping the skin taut with your other hand (this might sting or feel a little uncomfortable). This will remove all hairs that were stuck under the dead skin cells and remove them permanently from their roots, making this method last longer than shaving without stubble or razor burn.

The Downside: Is Waxing Really Good & Lasting for Hair Removal?

Getting rid of hair Wax can be a quick and easy way to get rid of body hair that you don't want. But there are a few things you should think about before you decide to use wax to get rid of hair.

It can get really messy.

The first problem with waxing is that it is messy. To avoid spills or missing spots, you have to be careful when applying and removing the wax. If the process isn't done right, it can get messy quickly, wasting product and making a mess that looks bad. Additionally, it can be difficult to achieve perfect results at home without proper technique and practise.

Ouch, ouch, ouch!

Another downside of using hair removal wax is the pain associated with it. As the hot wax strips are put on and then taken off, they pull at the skin and hairs at the same time. This can cause stinging pain that may last for a while. Many people find this feeling uncomfortable, especially those with sensitive skin or low pain thresholds.

Skin: It's irritating!

Lastly, using hair removal wax can irritate your skin because some products contain chemicals that may not be good for everyone's skin type. This irritation can cause redness and itching that can last for a few hours or even longer, so you should be careful if you want to use this method to get rid of hair. If applied appropriately, hair removal wax can be effective. However, before determining whether or not this treatment is good for you, consider how messy it can be as well as the chance of pain and irritation, and the worst thing is: You will have to experience the process again and again for the rest of your life since it does not help you to remove the hair permanently. Fortunately, technology has caught up with human need, and there is laser hair removal service, which can eradicate all of your concerns and leave you with smooth skin and a painless experience - and that's where IPL Hair Removal Treatment comes in.


IPL Hair Removal Treatment from New Beauty Singapore: A Painless Hair Removal Experience

IPL Hair Removal Treatment gets rid of unwanted body hair, no matter how thick or thin it is. IPL energy finds melanin particles in the hair follicle and destroys them. IPL heat damages the hair follicle to get rid of the fuzz. While removing unwanted hair, the sapphire cooling spot on the handpiece sends out cold waves, calming any redness or irritation that might have been caused. This makes hair removal more comfortable. The heat from the IPL also causes the capillaries to shrink, which cuts off the food supply to the hair follicles. This stops hair from growing from the root. The big, square tip of the treatment probe can cover a bigger area of skin at once without missing any hairs. This method for getting rid of hair can quickly get rid of about 500 hairs per second. During hair removal, the sapphire cooling spot on the handpiece sends out cold waves that calm any redness or irritation. This makes hair removal more comfortable. As the treatment goes on, the rate at which hair grows gradually slows down. After the full course of treatment, you won't have any unwanted body hair.

Aside from that, the friction between skin and body hair causes melanocytes to make more melanin, which causes hyperpigmentation in the long run. IPL energy can get to the dermis and break down hidden melanin. The photothermal effect caused by IPL also helps collagen grow. Both of these make the skin in the treated area look healthy and firm.


The Last Note

Overall, IPL is a less invasive, more effective, and less uncomfortable procedure than waxing. It is also more expensive than at-home waxing kits, but it will save you money in the long term. Thus, it is safe to say that laser therapy is the most effective approach for removing unwanted hair, and a long-term remedy that is significantly less unpleasant than waxing. If you have a history of ingrown hairs, this is the only treatment to use because it fully destroys the hair follicle. Say goodbye to the painful waxing experience and book your appointment now!


Can I use hair removal wax if I have sensitive skin?

Waxing can be done on sensitive skin without any problems. The most important thing is to make sure that both the wax and the waxer are of good quality. If you had to choose one type of wax, chocolate wax is softer on sensitive skin and less likely to cause redness and itching. So, women with delicate or sensitive skin are told to use chocolate wax.

How can I get rid of the wax residue if I tried it at home?

Use a natural oil, alcohol, or petroleum jelly to remove wax residue from your skin. If you have dry skin or remove the strips off too slowly, you are more likely to have wax residue on your skin. To avoid wax residue, add powder to your skin before waxing.

What do I need to take care of after I tried New Beauty's IPL Hair Removal Treatment?

Apply a lot of moisturiser to the area where the hair removal was done. This makes the skin less red, which is a common side effect of laser hair removal. Don't rinse the area where the hair was removed with hot water. Do not wear clothes that are too tight because they put pressure on your skin and hair follicles. Also, don't shave the area where IPL Hair Removal was done for a week to keep the skin from getting hurt.

Should I clean the area with hair before the treatment?

Hair must be present in your follicles for laser hair removal to operate. Waxing completely removes the hair from the follicle. Laser treatment would be absolutely ineffective if you waxed and removed all of your hair. Before each treatment, excess hair on the skin's surface must be removed.

Is there anything bad that can happen from hair removal treatment?

It does not happen to most people but IPL/Laser can make hair grow back in hormonal areas like the chin, under the chin, sides of the face, neck, and breasts in some rare cases. After the first treatment, hair will grow less. IPL can also sometimes make hair grow faster, which is the opposite of what you would expect. It doesn't happen very often and is more likely to happen in people with hormonal problems like polycystic ovary syndrome.
