Waxing at Home

Waxing at Home
Waxing at Home
We all love to have mirror finished skin. To wear our favorite minis or off shoulder top we want to get rid of unwanted hairs from our body. Waxing is the best solution to have smooth and mirror finished skin.

You can try for razor and the cream to remove those hairs but they will cause your skin rough and dark and it has many side effects too. 

All ways it is not possible to visit to parlour for waxing right? It is just because of lack of time. You can do waxing at your home only. In market you can get many brands which sell their packed wax products. 

There are 2 kinds of wax, 1st hot wax and 2nd cold wax. It is so difficult to choose among them. 

Hot and cold wax

Both of these waxes are made up of same ingredients. Base of the wax is basically beeswax or paraffin. Lubricator and a resin can be a fat or oil.  In wax fat is added to make process smooth while resin is added to make wax adhere so that hair strands better.

Many companies add fragrance or colors to make wax more appealing to the customer. Hot wax need to be melted while cold wax is in semi solid form so it is used directly.

It is your choice who to use wax.
