Decoding The Art Of Waxing: How Often Should You Wax?

Unwanted body hair is a constant issue for women. Well, most of them. And waxing is considered the best way to get rid of unwanted body hair. And trust us there are many options to get the job done. Although painful, it is quite effective considering it removes the hair from the roots. Waxing also gives us smooth skin and time to breathe before we have to go through the process again.

The process of waxing, however, requires a certain length of hair to give you the flawless finish. Hair too short can not be pulled out and hair too long might break and makes the process much more painful. But how often should you wait before waxing the next time? Depending on the rate of hair growth, the average time for waxing your body is 3-8 weeks. In this article, we put a time frame for how long you should wait before waxing each body part. Let's begin!

How Often To Wax Your Arms

How Often To Wax Your Legs

Legs have the slowest rate of hair growth. But, you also need to keep in mind that for smooth waxing on the legs, the hair should be at least 1/4 inch long. When you begin waxing your legs, get it waxed every 3 weeks for the first few times. After that, 4-5 weeks is enough waiting period.

How Often To Wax Your Underarms

How Often To Wax Your Stomach

This may not be a regular practice for you, but we do know women who get their tummies waxed. Whether crop tops are the reason for that or you prefer it that way it's completely normal.
