Although the hairy chest was very popular In the seventies and eighties, several women today find a more attractive body without hair, than someone similar to Chewbacca. But fear not, since there are several ways to tame the beast that is the hair of your body and hair removal is one of the most economical and effective methods in the market.
Preparing the skin
The first step in preparing your body is to clean the hair follicles from the root, making sure that the skin is clean. Cleaning your skin with a mild astringent will reduce the chances of pimples forming after shaving and also help remove any dirt or grease, giving the wax a clean, smooth surface to adhere to, giving it a better grip on hair.
Choosing the correct wax is the next step in the process. There are two main types of wax: hot and cold. The hot wax is spread over the hair and then it is torn off after it has cooled and hardened. The cold wax comes in pre-packaged strips that are heated between your hands, applied to the hair and then plucked. Cold wax is usually used to remove smaller areas of hair, such as the face or waistline. Check the ingredients of the wax before applying it, in case you have any allergies.
