Despite the many hair removal techniques available today, one tried-and-true method remains popular: waxing. Really, nothing compares to the silky softness of freshly waxed skin. To keep that softness going, there are some post-waxing tricks to keep hair from coming back that will make the treatment last as long as possible. After all, most people don't want to endure the stinging sensation of ripped hair more often than necessary.
The pain factor notwithstanding, waxing is one beauty treatment that's around to stay. If anything, its popularity is increasing. In fact, according to Inc., personal waxing and salon services as an industry grew 7.6 percent per year from 2010 to 2015. Getting rid of body and facial hair is a big (think billion-dollar) business.
For consumers, this means waxing options are more prevalent and specific than ever. Seriously, have you checked out the menu for waxing services lately? A person's legs, arms, back, butt, underarms, ears, chin, and even nose are all fair game for the hot wax. Basically, anything with a hair follicle can be smoothed out in no time. But whatever you get waxed, there's a good chance you want to keep that area smooth and hair-free for many weeks. To help prolong your waxing session, check out these tips.
