Epilating arms: pros and cons
We saw an online chat of two women on one of the forums that turned into a serious argument, about whether or not you should remove the hair from your arms.
In reality, there are no established standards of “smoothness” or “softness” for a woman's body. Nowhere is it written that hair on the legs should be removed, but not on the arms. Is it necessary? And what is the right way to do it?
Attractiveness and rationality
What kind of hair do you have on your arms? Light and barely noticeable? Dark and visible? Your arm hair type will be the determining factor in whether or not you should remove it. But, speaking of rationality, isn't it strange that some women will do bikini zone sugaring (not visible to anyone), shave the hair on their legs, but then consider arm hair removal unnecessary?
Hair removal on the arms is both hygienic and attractive. Having fuzz on the arms, no matter how “invisible” it is, is still considered having hair. In Asian countries, for example, facial and arm hair removal is considered to be good manners. That's why the decision to remove or not to remove your arm hair is your personal choice, but if you have already made up your mind, now is the time to choose the best method.
Choosing the method
As we know, there are two completely different methods for hair removal: epilation (laser, photo, electric epilation, sugaring, waxing) and depilation (creams, razors, and etc.). Let's choose the method:
- Epilation – longer break between procedures (2-4 weeks); minimal to no chance of ingrown hair, especially with professional sugaring paste; new hair after the procedure is lighter and weaker.
- Depilation – 1-3 day break between procedures; greater chance of ingrown hair, irritation, and experiencing an allergic reaction; unpleasant “bumps” that appear on the skin 6-12 hours after the procedure.
The choice is obvious: epilation allows you to get rid of hair for longer periods of time. If you base your decision on which type of epilation offers the best price and quality, as well as the least negative impacts on the skin, then sugaring wins on all counts.
Sugaring (or sugar epilation) will definitely help you get rid of your extra hair. Read about 5+ myths about sugaring https://sugaringfactory.com/blog-of-sugaring-factory/5-myths-about-sugaring. Compared to other epilation methods, sugaring:
- is inexpensive;
- is reliable;
- is painless (clients often notice that they experience some pain during the first treatment, but the skin quickly adapts);
- does not cause ingrown hair (when performed by a specialist);
- has a gentle peeling effect;
- does not cause an allergic reaction or irritation.
