Let's talk body hair
Sometimes we love it and sometimes we want rid!
Everyone has a personal preference and that's cool HOWEVER, Did you know that leaving your body hair au naturel could be better for your skin
Each hair follicle is not just producing a hair fibre, but also has masses of blood vessels, nerves and fat around it!
Hair follicles are rich in stem cells - cells that never lose the capacity to renew themselves - which help the skin heal 🖒
For example, if you compared a wound on the outside of a man's arm, where the hair follicles are larger and more numerous, with a wound on the inside of the arm, the one on the outside would heal better, because of the increased stem cells and blood supply, among other factors
In the same way, a bald scalp copes less well with cuts and bruising than a hairy scalp because of the lack of healthy follicles. As we age, follicles shrink and while people who lose hair will still have some stem cells, their healing capacity may be reduced.
Even the finest hair coverage on the body provides the skin protection from harm!
Also, women who repeatedly use hair removal methods around their bikini line may find that this can sometimes cause a minor infection called folliculitis or in growing hairs! (Ouch!) So in conclusion, shave or don't shave just think about how that hair protects your skin x
OR just use this as an excuse like me to not shave when you can't be bothered! #shaving #shave #skin #skincare #beauty #organicbeauty #skincarefacts #noshaving #organicskincare #ukskincare #crueltyfreeskincare #naturalelements #sjnaturals
