Spring is officially here, and what better time to prep for swimsuit season than now? The temps are heating up and the time to throw on your favorite suit and head to the beach or pool will be here before you know it. In the spirit of Summer, let’s talk about ditching that unwanted hair, shall we? For many women, waxing is the only way to go!
Of course, shaving is always an option, but it definitely comes with drawbacks. It’s extremely temporary (ugh, who wants to shave every day?!), it can cause skin irritation and razor burn, and it can even cause hyperpigmentation in those more delicate areas. Yikes, no thanks! Waxing, on the other hand, lasts much longer and can even reduce hair regrowth over time in the treated areas. Sounds much more appealing, doesn’t it?
Even if you’ve never waxed before, don’t despair! It’s never too late to begin this superior hair removal regimen. First, make an appointment with a professional technician and discuss your options. Talk to your technician about the products you use, your health, and other important factors so she can determine whether waxing is right for you.
If you haven’t shaved in a few weeks, make your appointment right away, and don’t shave off the stubble in the meantime. Having slightly longer hair for your waxing appointment makes the procedure more effective.
One of the many benefits of waxing is that it is also a great exfoliator. Because of this, don’t apply any sunless tanning products until afterward, because it will just be removed during the process if you apply beforehand. In addition, always wear sunscreen because your skin will be more susceptible to sunburns.
