Hair removal is usually something that involves a little bit of maintenance. There are many different techniques to try and what works well for one person might not work well for another. That being said, one of the most popular and most used methods is waxing. Lots of people wax because it gives great, long lasting results.
You no longer need to go to a salon to get results that last. It can be hard to find the time to get to an appointment as well as being expensive. Luckily, with easy to use wax strips, you can remove hair in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you.
Waxing removes hair from the root meaning your skin stay smoother for longer. You also don’t run the risk of any nicks or cuts.

Before you start, make sure that the skin is free of dirt, oil or make up as these sorts of products make it harder for the wax to stick to the hairs. To enhance the results even more, try exfoliating your skin the day before with a body scrub or exfoliation gloves to remove the top layer of dead skin cells, this should also help to prevent ingrown hairs after the process.
As for the waxing itself, wax strips are a great option for home hair removal as they are easy to use and mess free. Simply apply the wax strips to the hair that you wish to remove, hold the skin taut and pull the strips off in one swift motion, in the opposite direction to hair growth. The faster you pull, the more hair you will remove. The strips can be used a couple of times until they stop becoming affective and the best part is, that once you are done with them, they can be thrown straight into the bin.

Some women also prefer to use wax strips as they can be used in the privacy of their own home, as exposing your skin, particularly sensitive areas can be uncomfortable for some women. When you are finished, you can put on something loose and comfortable and relax on the sofa instead of traveling back from a salon.
