Waxing Do’s and Don’ts

Waxing Do's and Don'tsTired of the constant expense of disposable razors, the pain of knicks and cuts, and the constant acrobatic display of flexibility while shaving in a tiny shower? Then it’s time you venture into the smooth world of waxing. If you’re a waxing newbie, here are a few things you need to know to get the most out of your waxing appointment.

Don’t Apply Ice Before Waxing

Having a frozen and numb area sounds appealing, especially if you’re getting a bikini wax. But having ice applied to your skin is actually one of the worst things you can do because the ice is going to constrict your pores. Constriction=tightening, and you don’t want your skin clinging to those hairs any more than they already are. If you’re getting a bikini wax, the last thing you want to see is your technician pull out the tweezers to get out any “difficult” hairs. We’re crossing our legs just thinking about it.

Do Wear Loose Fitting Clothing

Trust us on this one: no matter where you’re being waxed, you don’t want tight clothes rubbing on angry skin. This is especially true if you are getting a bikini wax. Skip the cute undies and go for billowing granny panties. Even better is to go commando under a generously sized skirt. You’ll thank yourself when you’re waddling out of the office. Tight clothes chafe skin raw and can lead to ingrown hairs. If you find yourself getting ingrowns, try an ingrown hair product.

Don’t Shave Between Sessions

If you’re wanting to be a full time waxer, you’re going to have to ditch the razor for good. Your hair will probably come back in thicker after a wax, and if your hair is short and stubbly, the wax isn’t going to be able to remove as much of it, making for a messy and patchy wax job. Keep your waxing appointments consistently, and you won’t feel the need to get a quick shave in between sessions.

Do Take Some Pain Relief

Nobody likes a hero, and you’re not getting any medals by bearing an intense waxing without any medicinal relief. Pop some ibuprofen or acetaminophen 30 to 45 minutes before your appointment. This will help with swelling and discomfort afterwards. You can do this no matter where you’re getting waxed, but seasoned waxees agree this works best when you’re getting body waxed.

Don’t let your first waxing session turn into that “Kelly Clarkson!” moment (you know what we’re talking about). With some proper pre-care and careful care after waxing, you can have a smooth, hair free body without the tears.

Bushy brows still popular as spring rolls on

True makeup can help you fine-tune everything from your peepers to your pout, but it’s worth taking a look at up-and-coming trends to stay on par with what’s hot in the current season. MSN reported that bold brows are all the rage on the runway, and they don’t appear to be going anywhere in the near future. You can expect to see more celebrities with fuller brows this summer as the style continues to reign supreme in Hollywood.

If you’ve always wanted to ditch your tweezers or skip your waxing appointment, now is the perfect time to do so. Achieving a beautiful, bold brow is also simple, according to SheKnows. All you have to do is let it grow, then get to sculpting!

A professional can be consulted if you’re used to pencil-thin brows and want a few pointers on how to go bigger. Then, think about investing in an at-home hair removal product to eliminate stray hairs as your brows grow out. Doing so can help you eliminate the process of plucking if you want to avoid pain. In the end, you’ll fall right in line with spring’s hottest trend!

It’s as easy as that!

If you’re new to waxing or don’t want to deal with melted wax, MOOM – Express Pre Waxed Strips for Legs & Body is perfect and easy to use. All you do is press the strips on and pull them off in the opposite direction of hair growth.

Shaving treats to bring you to the razor's edge of delight We know shaving is a routine task for most men and women, but who said it had to be a droll, monotonous activity? You can turn your grooming sessions into regular treats for yourself by investing in a few choice products.

Ladies may well be tired of their razor routine, and for good reason. Many products just aren’t designed to keep up with the needs of women with sensitive skin. Why not opt for something along the lines of a MOOM Organic Hair Removal Kit with Rose Essence? These formulas are gentle, and with aromatic rose, you’ll get the pampering experience you secretly crave.

If you’re not so ready to ditch the shaving cream, it’s highly recommended that you indulge your senses with a fragrant product – Whish Shave Crave Shave Cream comes in intoxicating lemongrass, pomegranate and almond scents.

As for men, you may not only need a new lather to bring you to shave heaven, but an after-shave upgrade may be in the works for you. Take Caswell-Massey‘s After Shave Balm for a spin – its formula contains a blend of natural oils, sea kelp and algae with natural extracts and vitamin.

Model creates stir with unshaven legsRecently, the blogs have been buzzing about a particularly hair-raising subject. Model Natalia Vodianova recently stepped out at a party in London wearing a stunning gold dress that featured an up-to-there slit. So, what’s the big deal? The Russian beauty didn’t shave her legs before the big event.

And while some critics are celebrating her for her free-spirited appearance, others came down hard on Vodianova. StyleList.com called her look “a total buzzkill.”

Of course, ladies don’t have to shave their legs before sporting an ensemble that bares their gams, but many gals may prefer smooth stems. Luckily, there are a plethora of products available to help women achieve silky, hair-free legs.

Moom Organic Hair Removal Kit enables women to wax away unwanted hair quickly and easily as the product gently conditions skin. Ladies who prefer shaving should use a rich lotion, such as Whish Shave Crave Shave Cream, which soothes and moisturizes skin.

Those who use depilatories may want to stock up on Sothys Thalassothys Softening Post-Depilatory Care, a cream that is formulated to slow hair growth between removals.
