5 Dirty Secrets You Need To Know About Shaving And Waxing

Nasty Side Effects

Besides being painful and only giving you temporary results, waxing has some other significant drawbacks. Consistently ripping your hair out with hot wax irritates your skin and can leave you with redness and inflammation—it can even lead to permanent scarring.

The “Pink Tax”

This refers to the extra amount women are charged for various products or services— an estimated $1,300 more per year than their male counterparts. Razor and shaving cream companies are prime offenders for charging more (sometimes up to 10%) for women’s brands, even though the cost of production is almost the same as their men’s brands.

Repeated Injuries

About 32% of people who groom their pubic hair have been injured at least 5 times while doing so; the most common injuries being razor or wax burns and lacerations. These injuries range in severity from very minor ones that could be treated at home all the way up to injuries that required surgical intervention.

Money Pit

An endless routine of waxing is expensive, a monthly leg waxing appointment alone can cost more than $15,000 in a lifetime. But it doesn’t stop at your wallet. You’ll spend about two work weeks every decade going to your waxing appointments in order to maintain your results.

Increased Risk

Shaving irritates your skin and increases your risk for developing some common infections such as folliculitis—which tends to not only be painful, but is often more unsightly than your unwanted hair. Some of these infections may require a course of antibiotics to treat and can lead to scarring.

Waiting Costs More Than Money

Sticking to your endless shaving or painful waxing routine doesn’t just hurt your wallet. You’ll be wasting your precious time as well!
