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! Methods for hair removal and acceptable lengths reflect trends that may come to pass, 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 an issue. The smell associated with sweat is caused by bacteria breaking down the fats and proteins within it, and because hair is porous, it absorbs the sweat, bacteria, and odours! So by removing hair, although you’re not preventing yourself sweating, you are preventing the sweat 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 can often be made much worse when the hairs are very short and stubbly. You can usually take care of this 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.
Athletes 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.
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, or depilatory creams. There are a number of options available, each with their own host of benefits, explore the Veet website to find which option is best for you!
