Getting your Back Waxed
A lot of women love stubble. Many are keen on hairy chests. Most are unfazed by tufty knuckles, furry forearms or gorilla-like legs. But, for whatever reason, a hairy back lags behind in the stakes. And men, too – even those who baulk at the term ‘manscaping’ – tend to have a similar aversion. To bring sexy back, depilation is mandatory. Which may explain why back waxes are the most popular hair removal treatments for men.
The advantages of a bald back go beyond aesthetics. “Once the hair is removed the sensation on your back is so much better when wearing clothes, sweating and after showering, ” says beautician Sarah Louisa O’Looney, who instructs therapists on hair removal techniques.
So how exactly do you free yourself of the fuzz? Shaving is the simplest and least expensive option, but you’ll need a helping pair of hands and the results, much like an X-Factor winner’s career, are rather short lived. What’s more, you’re likely to be plagued by itchy regrowth. If you opt for the razor, ask your partner to do it in the shower (the steam will soften the hairs) and, as with the hair on your face, make sure they only ever shave in the direction of hair growth or you’ll end up with irritation and risk painful ingrown hairs.
Even if you don’t have a willing spouse comfortable with the least erotic shower they’re ever likely to experience, a depilatory cream is a better option. These work by dissolving the hair at skin level and deliver results lasting around twice as long as shaving. They can be tricky to apply by yourself, however, so for a solo back attack you could try removing the unwanted hair with the novel Mangroomer (see below) – a body shaver attached to an extendable handle.
But by far the easiest solution is to have a professional back wax. This, says O’Looney, will keep you smooth for up to two months at a time and should also improve the overall look of your body, especially if you also have the top of your arms and shoulders done at the same time. “Even if you haven’t much definition on your shoulders you’ll be amazed as how different your outline looks, ” she says. Incentive indeed.
What to buy
Professional back waxes vary in price depending on where you live, the salon doing them and whether you want shoulders or any other body parts done at the same time, but expect to pay between £30-40 a go. The process can be eye-watering and your skin will smart afterwards but the results are impressive.
By far the most ingenious grooming gadget you’ll come across, this clever tool actually allows you to remove your own back hair. Thanks to an extendable handle you can even get to the trickiest bits without needing to recruit a reluctant helper.
Getting the job done in under five minutes, this depilatory cream is the perfect choice if you want a quick solution to back hair. You’ll still need help applying it, though you’ll find most women are experts in the art.
With anti-bacterial tea tree oil, this spray is the perfect way to prevent the spots and blemishes that can occur after waxing, depilation or shaving. Since it’s a spray you can apply it yourself too.https //pivigames.blog among us blogging takes off traduzione advantages of blogging over social media cara buat blog blog under construction blogging bishop blog questions for students blog about me page bloggingx pro free download considerations before blogging blog updates blogging startup blogging legal issues blogging of future xanga blogging blogging at 40 blog kraken blogging during a divorce blog into spanish blogging of e commerce blogging zelda blogging prompts blog out synonym blogging without writing blog during quarantine blogging past participle blog outline considerations before blogging blog mockup blogging def blog inside paradeplatz blogging in zambia money off blogging blogging through pinterest go beyond blog difference between blogging and vlogging blog after 6 months blogging vs podcasting blog examples blogging quizlet blogging behind the scenes blog maker free difference between blogging and podcasting can i retire now blog blogging of art bloggingpro wordpress theme blog rubric blogging as a side hustle blog introduction examples blog house blogging sites blog like a lady difference between blogging and website blogging about your personal life sign up blogging account blog counter strike blogging in 2021 blogging during war blog to book shutterfly blogging by maya blog over 50 blog inside blogging for kids blogging through squarespace story behind blog blogging conferences 2022 set up blogging site beyond blogging travel blogging during covid makeup blogging blog between blog of top ten blog after hysterectomy insidetracker blog blog reader app blog sign up blog youversion blog without ads blog into the gloss blog xamarin blog vs newsletter blogging during weight loss blog barking 123 recall blogging translate into bengali blog post length blog with affiliate links meaning behind blogging blog as a service blog about anxiety blog via de la plata blog website builder blog break even blog pro for magento 2 blogging quizlet is blogging out of date blog behind the black blogging niche quiz blog to social inside outside blog blogging in 2022 blog pro anwar blog templates free advantages of blogging over social media blog around blog during spanish period blog free a blog around the clock blog apa citation blog over the moon pro blogging tips blogspot blog as a service blog after college blog into spanish blog by gabby petito blog as a genre blogging courses for beginners blogging quotes blog pro for magento 2 amanda outside blog blogging during weight loss travel blog during covid blogging of art blog after gastric sleeve blogging meaning in english blog up north blogging past participle blog post title generator bloggingheads blog like amanda outside blog blogging for business blog in a sentence blog themes blog set up blogging of cars blog kitchen remodel blogging vs blog
