A recent survey done by the Cargo Magazine pointed out that only 28% of women prefer hair on their man’s chest and then there is a whopping 40% who want them trimmed. In fact, current studies show that removal of body hair is the latest trend among men. In 2009, a study conducted by the University of Florida found out that 80% of men engage in some form of body-hair removal.
And you might have your own reasons to get rid of body hair. It can be due to medical reasons, professional reasons, comfort factor or it might simply be that you like being clean and waxed. Whatever might be the reason, the question is not lost…should men wax their chest?
Chest waxing has its share of criticism. Ask any model and he will advocate that post waxing, the irritation is just unbearable. Yes, waxing by itself is harmless but if not done correctly, it might cause some permanent damage to your skin. Apart from the pain, the waxed area feels raw and sensitive after waxing. Waxing can also cause skin infection. This is why application of an anti-bacterial cream is suggested after the waxing procedure.
Moreover, if you have moles, warts or broken skin on your chest, abstain from waxing.
But you might have your own reasons for advocating and practicing waxing. Then of course, it is suggested that you get your chest waxed at a salon or by a professional. But the small hitch here is not all salons offer chest waxing options.
In cases like these, your only scope is a DIY attempt. For that you need an ideal waxing kit for yourself and you need to strictly follow the steps of chest waxing at home.
Whether men should wax their chest or not is debatable and a matter of preference…but if you are going for it just be careful and aware of the pros and cons.
