SHAVING OR WAXING - Which is the best method

Women of all ages like to have smooth and shinning skin, hair free legs, armpits, faces and shaped eye-brows. To achieve these women chose between the two – shaving & waxing. Some even go for chemical hair removal using depilatory creams. But most of the time they are confused to chose between these three methods. All hair removal methods have their own pros and cons like pain, nicks, bumps, ingrown hair and general discomfort.

Warm wax is applied to the area where the hair has to be removed, and a cloth or paper strip is applied over the wax and pressed firmly. This makes the cloth stick to the wax and the wax to the skin. Then the strip is quickly removed against the direction of hair growth. This removes the hair from its root. It works good for legs, underarms and personal areas.
