As the saying goes, there is no beauty without pain. The mantra speaks volumes about the ever-famed bikini wax, that trades a few minutes of aches and stinging for weeks of down-there smoothness.
Some women will opt for a bikini wax for hygiene reasons—less hair, less care. Others will brave the hot strips for a much-needed boost of confidence. Regardless of the reasons behind your trip to the salon, here are a few that deserve the spotlight.
- It Promotes Self-Confidence
Some women prefer little to no hair down there but aren’t keen on shaving. Waxing will typically last twice as long as a shave, which can cause itching and discomfort. If you aren’t handy with a razor, a bikini wax can eliminate insecurities that may come with sex and dating—though how your flower looks shouldn’t matter.
- It Creates a Silky, Smooth Surface
When it comes to a bikini wax, your hair-free skin lasts longer—about four to five weeks between sessions. Unlike shaving, waxing removes hair from the root, which will grow back finer and thinner. Not to mention, bikini waxes help exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells.
- It’s a Means to Treat Yourself
If you’ve ever fallen victim to a frivolous purchase as a means to “treat yourself”, opting for a bikini wax instead of something non-essential is a better way to spend your money. If a bare down-there is aesthetically pleasing to you, a bikini wax takes the cake over a bumpy shave.
- It’s Convenient
Whether you visit a hair removal wax salon or prefer a DIY kit, bikini waxes are accessible and easy. We always recommend a professional wax for speedier and more precise results, though learning the ropes shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
- It Turns Your Partner On
Though we certainly believe a bikini wax is reserved for your delight, many partners love a bare surface. Alternatively, you can leave a tuft of hair for a charming landing strip or trimmed triangle—your partner will love this playful touch.
- It’s an Affordable Alternative to Laser Hair Removal
Though laser hair removal is a permanent solution for women who prefer a barren pelvic area, a session can cost as much as $200. On the other hand, a bikini wax comes up to a mere $30 to $50 every month and a half.
- It’s Quick, Safe, and Efficient
Your bikini wax isn’t likely to take more than 15 to 20 minutes, compared to a careful shave that can take up to 30 under the shower. At the waxing salon, long gone are the days of nicks, cuts, and razor burns.
A little bit of hair creeping down your thigh and pelvic area isn’t anything to worry about—but your self-confidence may take a hit. With a bikini wax, you can take back control of how you want to feel empowered.
