This Secret Ingredient Is the Key to an Ideal Waxing Experience for Men
June 17, 2016You thought waxing was only a ladies' thing? Not anymore! Hair removal for men is a growing trend. It even has its own name: Manscaping. And why not? It's practical, since not having to shave every day saves time. It has a relatively long-lasting effect, as hair will take at least 3 weeks to grow back – unlike shaving or depilatory creams – and when it does, it is soft and thin instead of coarse and stubby. Since eventually hair starts growing back thinner, there is no need to go to the waxing spa as often. Here at Beauty Image, we recognized this growing trend early on, and we have a range of waxing products for men that include post-depilatory oils, hard waxes, and soft waxes. These products were created for an efficient waxing treatment on men's backs, underarms, chest, legs, and arms.
Our soft and hard body waxes and post-depilatory oil For Men, feature a key ingredient that has many beneficial properties for the skin and for health in general. We are talking about eucalyptus oil. This essential oil is extracted from the leaves of the plant with the same name. The plant itself comes from Australia, but it is currently grown worldwide. Australian natives brew eucalyptus tree leaves as traditional medicine to treat colds, sinus problems, body aches, and other ailments. Eucalyptus oil has historically had many applications, from medicinal to cosmetic uses.
Eucalyptus oil ensures pore opening and maximum hair removal, even on sweat-sensitive skin. Its antiseptic properties prevent infected pores and the appearance of pimples. Because of its analgesic properties, it can help to calm the skin after a waxing treatment.
This long-used oil also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties, and has been used for minor wounds, cuts, blisters, and burns. When applied on the skin, it can also help with skin irritation and alleviate insect bites, while acting as an insect repellent. It is also recommended for breakouts and oily complexions. When combined with coconut or almond oil, it can be used as a massage oil in relaxing or therapeutic sessions. Eucalyptus oil can give you the soft, flawless skin you've always wanted.
Besides all the benefits eucalyptus oil provides the skin, it has many other uses in the medical and cosmetic fields. Its antibacterial properties have been known to help not only the skin, but also the upper respiratory tract, and it has been used as therapy aid for sinus congestion and to help relieve cold symptoms. Its antibacterial properties have also shown it can act against cariogenic bacteria, and so it is used in dental care products. It is also helpful in the treatment of allergies and asthma, as smelling a drop of eucalyptus oil on a cotton ball several times a day can help heal mucus membranes. It can also be added to a nebulizer for steam therapy.
A study carried out by Italian scientists showed that this multi-functional oil extract seems to stimulate the innate cell-mediated immune response, and even though more studies are necessary, this shows that eucalyptus oil has additional medicinal properties. It can open up the world of immunology to a new family of immuno-regulatory agents that can be used to help in immuno-suppressive treatments.
Additionally, many people use eucalyptus oil for its cooling and refreshing effects. It can be a stimulant that helps with exhaustion, mental sluggishness, and stress.
