Waxing is one of the most common ways to get rid of unwanted body hair and is available across the world. The process involves heating wax to melt it and then applying it on the hair using a spatula. Then, using a wax strip and holding the skin taut, the wax strip is pulled off in the opposite direction of the hair growth and the body hair comes off from the root. This effective method is a bit painful especially when it comes to sensitive areas like the underarms or the bikini line. However, it is widely used to get rid of body hair. The benefits of waxing are also aplenty as it delays the hair growth by removing it from the root which means hair takes longer to grow. Waxing also helps removes the layer of dead skin cells that accumulate over time and hence you will find your skin to look fairer than before. Since the hair is removed from the root, the skin is smoother either way you touch it unlike with shaving where one side is slightly grainy as the hair begins to grow.
