Waxing as a hair removal method is widely used in countries like Brazil. A good wax is made of bees wax and soothing natural oils. Some synthetic waxes are also available in the market. Performed using both cold and hot varieties, waxing can be used for sensitive areas like the face, underarms and the pubis as well as hands and legs and in fact the entire body. Some people believe that cold wax, though easy to use straight from the bottle, is not as effective as hot wax applied by a trained person.
