Lots of women choose to remove their body hair because of the way it looks, but there are many other reasons to go hair-less beyond looking good in a bikini! Fashions in hair removal may come and go, but some things will always remain constant, so let’s take a look at some of the other arguments for staying smooth.
Whilst removing body hair may not make you sweat any less, it can stop body odour from being such an issue. The smell associated with sweat is caused by bacteria breaking down the fats and proteins within it, and as hair is porous, it can absorb the sweat, bacteria, and the odours! So by removing this hair, although you’re not preventing yourself from sweating, you are preventing it from having anywhere to lurk and linger, and ultimately causing body odour.
Some people much prefer the feel of being hairless. This can be referring to skin on skin contact, or just to the way that your clothes feel against your body whilst you wear them. This feeling can often be lost when the hairs are very short and stubbly. The way this is often combatted is by shaving the offending hairs, but this just starts the cycle all over again! Waxing removes the hair at the roots, rather than cutting them off at skin level, meaning that not only do you stay hair free for much longer, but the hairs can grow back finer, softer, and fewer over time.
Sports-people often choose to remove the hair from their body to improve their performance. This can be for a number of reasons, including comfort whilst wearing skin tight Lycra clothing, and even to reduce drag and resistance from water and the air. It may seem quite strange to think that only a few hairs could make such a difference, but it could be the difference between winning and losing races!
Whatever the reason for you deciding to remove any hair from your body, it’s important to choose the right method, whether that’s waxing, depilatory creams, or something a bit longer lasting.
