Extra hair in visible parts of the body is a dubious ornament for a girl. The most accessible way to say goodbye to them is shaving. However, the result is very short. One of the new effective means of combating vegetation on the body is the wax strips.
What are wax strips?
Wax strips – a new word in home depilation. They are a small piece of paper on which a thin layer of wax is applied. Two parts, as a rule, are stitched together, which makes it possible to quickly and easily warm up the active component simply by rubbing between the palms. Next, the strips should be disconnected and glued on the selected hair area of ??the body.
The most popular brands of wax strips are Caramel, Veet, Cliven, Byly, Oriflame, etc. Each package contains 8-16 wax strips (the number varies depending on the brand). Also included in the set are oil-soaked napkins (remove wax residues from the body) and instruction.
Wax strips vary in their purpose. Separately, there are means for depilation of the feet-hands, separately – for the axillae, face. Some firms also offer stripes for the bikini area. Regardless of the application, all wax strips should be used correctly.
How to use wax strips
In the area that needs depilation, the hair should be of medium length (minimum 3-4 mm). The wax can not grab very short processes. Before the procedure, experts recommend preparing depilation zones: do peeling and steam. These actions will make it possible to remove hair in a qualitative way and make the procedure less painful.
Then carefully dry the skin and apply talc / baby powder in a thin layer. Heat the streaked strips in the palms of your hands. Separate the material for depilation and paste on the selected area. Please note: glue should be in the direction of hair growth. Smooth the strip, carefully stroking it with your hand: it should well "grab" every hair.
The skin below the glued strip is slightly tight and secure. Grasp the bottom edge of the wax sheet and very sharply pull it up. Remember: the sharper the movement, the less pain you will experience. If there are a lot of hairs left, repeat the procedure completely. Single simply remove with tweezers. Wipe off the wax on the skin with the cosmetic napkins available in the kit. If they are not present or have ended, use a cloth soaked in vegetable / olive oil.
What girls say about wax strips
Reviews about the wax strips vary greatly. Some girls remained completely unhappy with this way of depilation, others it fell to taste. In order not to be disappointed, one should pay attention to both positive and negative opinions.
The main points that cause discontent among most girls: the duration of the procedure and poor hair removal. Wax, as evidenced by numerous reviews, often remains on the depilation zone instead of removing it from vegetation. To avoid such a situation, the girls recommend to heat the strips not in the palms, but with the help of an iron, battery, hair dryer and other heating appliances.
Many girls also faced the problem of severe skin irritation. From the reviews it follows that the procedure is absolutely not suitable for sensitive skin and skin with inflammation / wound. Also, the wax strips will be ineffective if you have dense vegetation: the removal will take a very long time, and the result will be sad (no more than 60% of the cutaneous surface will be cleared).
Most of all positive reviews about wax strips for facial depilation. This procedure seemed to the girls not very painful and effective. Hairs are removed quickly, well and for a long time. As for the rest of the body, the wax strips fit perfectly well for those with a rare and soft vegetation.
