Smooth Skin: Reasons to Quit Shaving
Summer is upon us, and most of us may be paying more attention to our hair and smooth skin than we do in other parts of the year.
If you’re accustomed to shaving, whatever the reason, you’ll probably agree that it’s a time consuming and irritating (literally) process—for some more than others, depending on your skin.
If you’re looking to give yourself smooth skin without shaving this summer, here are some excellent reasons to quit and look into laser hair removal instead!
1. Save Yourself Time
Whether you’re shaving your pits, your legs, bikini line, your face, whatever, it takes time! And depending on your hair and skin, you may be shaving more often than you’d like.
When you opt for laser hair removal over shaving, you never have to worry you won’t be able to get through your entire beauty routine just because you woke up late.
Sure, you’ll have to go in every couple of weeks for laser removal, but it’s better than having to shave every few days again.
2. Save Yourself from Pain
Most people shave incorrectly, and even if you are doing it the right way, if you have sensitive skin, shaving can irritate it more.
Then you have to account for the occasional nick and cut. Razor bumps and rashes are also common and unsightly, especially if you’re about to hit the pool!
Laser hair removal, on the other hand, does no damage to your dermis (the top layer of your skin) and is a completely safe option for those with sensitive skin.
3. Say Bye-Bye to Ingrown Hairs
Excessive shaving and incorrect shaving can lead to damaged skin, inviting ingrown hairs—ouch! Some people are more prone than others, but even one ingrown hair is too many.
While they may not seem like a big deal, they can cause a lot of harm, especially if infected. Laser hair removal doesn’t irritate or damage skin meaning you don’t have to deal with ingrown hairs!
4. No More Itching
Many avid shavers report feeling itchy in-between shaves because shaving irritates your hair follicles.
Sure, moisturizers and creams can help curb the itch, but if you get laser hair removal, you can forego the itching altogether.
5. You’re Wasting Money
A lot of times the upfront cost of laser hair removal can turn people away, but the truth is shaving isn’t that cheap.
If you’re replacing your razor as often as you should (most people do not!) and counter in how much more expensive women’s razors are (thanks, Pink Tax!) and creams and moisturizers you’re not exactly getting a discount.
Also, many people often reach for the cheapest razor which isn’t always the best fit for their skin, their hair type, or the area they’re shaving.
