Top 5 Benefits of Body Waxing for Men

by | Aug 15, 2022 | 0 comments

At Therapy by Sam Baggott I offer professional waxing for your arms, stomach, chest, back and legs. Why would men even bother doing this? As it turns out, there are numerous benefits to getting something like this done. While men typically do not consider body waxing when it comes to beauty care, we have listed five reasons that might change your mind!

Smooth skin

This is the same for women as it is for men; waxing results in smooth skin each and every time. Smooth skin not only looks aesthetically pleasing, but feels nice too!  If you’re a parent, this lack of hair can also work to enhance any skin-to-skin connection that you have your newborn, since there won’t be any hair getting in the way.

Reducing body odour

Male bodies tend to create more of an odour than their female counterparts. This is because they have more body hair, which absorbs perspiration created throughout the day. By waxing body hair off men, they are more likely to naturally smell nicer since perspiration will have nothing to cling onto here. One wax is enough to have you smelling better for weeks, no matter what you might be doing. It won’t make it impossible for you to smell bad, but it will guarantee that it takes a lot more time for your body to get there!

Improved performance

As proven by and seen in swimmers, a waxed body can enhance an individual’s performance. Being smooth and slick allows someone to be more aerodynamic and, as a result, faster. This is because body hair creates a drag for swimmers that is gone once it has been waxed. Through the process of waxing, some dead skin cells are also removed, adding to a swimmer’s aerodynamic ability.

Improved body definition

Taking another example from the world of sports, bodybuilding can be a prime example of why men choose to wax. Bodybuilders, or even people who are getting ready for a summer holiday, will wax their bodies with the intention of getting more pronounced aesthetic body definition. Waxing increases the visibility of veins and muscles in the body, giving the male physique a more striking, aesthetically pleasing look that is perfect for the summer season.

Cost effective and long lasting

The most practical reason for any man to get waxed is the amount of money and time you save. If you’re already a man who shaves, or are considering saving yourself the trouble and shaving anyway, it might be worth reconsidering. If you wax you won’t have to worry about body hair growth for about six weeks depending on what you choose to get waxed, and your genetic make-up.
