Women use a wide range of products to make sure that their lips look their best, taking simple measures such as applying lip gloss or lipstick and in some cases even injecting collagen into their lips. Given how much women pay attention to their own lips, it is no surprise that most women go to great lengths to get rid of unsightly hair that appears in the upper lip region. If left unattended, these hairs will lead to a loss of self-esteem and might even form a mustache. Women can prevent these issues by using one of the various lip waxing products that are on the market today.
Not all women have had waxing done before, so it is understandable that they might be hesitant to use such products. What they should realize is that other hair removal products are far less effective, efficient, and in many cases are more expensive. Shaving hair in the upper lip region will not only produce results that last less than one week by only removing hair at skin level, but can even cause hairs to grow back thicker and darker.
Plucking hairs with a tweezer is more effective since just like lip waxing products, this method removes hair at the follicle root. However, this method is also painful and time-consuming. Treatments such as laser hair removal and electrolysis deliver the longest lasting results, but are very expensive since they must be completed by a trained professional. Alternatively, lip waxing products such as home waxing strips are inexpensive, can be used from the privacy of one's own home, and produce long-lasting results by removing hair at the root.
Home waxing strips are the most popular lip waxing resource, and these cloth strips coated with wax are sold in a box for between $10 and $20. Each box contains resources for multiple treatments, which delivers an extra level of convenience. Using home waxing strips is simple: the individual begins by affixing strips one-at-a-time to the upper lip area or any other area where he or she wishes to remove hair. Next, the individual will place down on the strip so that hair sticks to the wax coating, and then rip it off in a quick motion so that hair is removed at the root. This process takes seconds and causes very little pain after the first few uses.
While shaving hair causes it to grow back thicker and darker, using lip waxing products to remove hair will actually cause hair to grow back finer and lighter. Over time the need to wax one's skin becomes less frequent as the hair follicles are weakened.
Women who are considering home waxing strips or other lip waxing products should conduct plenty of research before making a purchase. Buyers should speak to a vendor of hair removal products to determine if alternatives such as lip waxing products formulated for sensitive skin are a better choice. The vendor should also be able to recommend a post-wax cream or oil that can be used to remove wax residue and nourish the skin.
Lip waxing products such as home waxing strips are cheaper, more convenient, and easier to use than shaving, electrolysis, or laser hair removal.
