Re: is waxing bad for your skin?
I've never heard that it is bad for your skin. Do you break out after waxing?
I found this online! Maybe waxing isn't a good idea.http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/...540187724.html
Should you or shouldn't you wax your face? The experts concur that electrolysis is a better option for persistent, unwanted facial hair. Waxing can stretch and damage the skin on your chin, lip and even brow. But waxing is better than shaving, says Nicole Weinberg of Paddington's Skin & Tonic. Weinberg also specialises in the ancient art of threading, which involves manoeuvring cotton thread to pluck out hairs selectively and hence can be ideal for the lip.
If you wax regularly, it is recommended to shave every now and again between waxes to toughen up the follicle. The hair can weaken and become too fine for the therapist to work with and shaving offers the solution. But, despite the hair weakening after prolonged waxing, it is a fallacy that regrowth will one day reduce to zero. Sorry.
More bad news. If you are predisposed to spider veins, waxing your legs might draw them out.
Good news. If you're a woman who finds the pain of waxing intolerable, try booking in on the first 10 days of your menstrual cycle when your pain threshold is slightly higher. Failing that, get shaving.
