Waxing in the fall

Most people are probably thinking the summer is over so now I don’t have to shave everyday so why would I wax? Fall is actually the perfect time to start or continue waxing! A lot of clients’ biggest challenge when starting a waxing regiment is having to grow out their hair to 1/4 inch. This can be difficult to do in the summertime with nice weather and spontaneous weekend trips. Thus fall is a great time to start waxing.
Hair grows in 3 different hair cycles. It takes about six months of consistent waxing every 3-5 weeks (depending of the person) to get all three of your hair growth cycles on the same pattern. When you first start waxing the hair growth cycles are not yet in sync and your waxes will last approximately 2-3 weeks before the hair starts growing back. After waxing regularly for about six months, with no shaving in between, the waxes should last for 4 to 6 weeks.
Following our recommended schedule you will be much happier and the treatment as close to painless as possible.
Now that you’re all smooth and wanting to enjoy it, there are just a few things to keep in mind. Your skin is sensitive and needs protection, especially for a day or two after your waxing service.

Summer fun in the sun

We are officially in summer! Fun in the sun can cause stress on our skin. Here are some tips on how to keep your skin safe and looking great this summer ..
Sunburn
We have all had those moments where we should have applied the higher SPF or stayed out a bit too long and got sunburn. Apply an ice cold compress to the area to reduce the pain and cool your skin. Also after sun lotions or putting Aloe in the fridge will also help cook the skin down and keep it hydrated.
Bikini Lines
We are in our bathing suits all summer long so maintaining our bikini area is essential. Now is the perfect time to try waxing instead of shaving, as it decreases the occurrence of bumps and ingrown hairs.
If bumps are persistent, try our bikini facial – a services that revitalized and exfoliates the bikini area.
If you are having issues with ingrown hairs use exfoliating gloves every time you shower in circular motions

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) giving your skin a smoother, brighter appearance. The visible skin cells removed look like dust or lint. It is very safe and has been used for many years.
Dermaplaning should not be confused with dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is a medical procedure in which the skin is abraded down to the dermis using a whisklike device. Unlike dermabrasion, dermaplaning has none of the complications and side effects.
To ensure you have the best experience, Irine was trained at the Catherine Hinds institute to perform this procedure.

Waxing for men – manscaping revisited

Lately, I have been noticing a growing popularity in waxing hair removal among men. I am glad to see that men are getting more serious about getting rid of unwanted hair and wanted to share answers to some common questions men have about getting waxed.
manscaping3

Is waxing the best option for men? Waxing is a hair removal method that applies to anyone, regardless of the gender. Male waxing removes all ugly hair from the selected areas so that you can enjoy a soft and smooth skin for a longer period of time. While shaving is an option for removal of underarm and leg hair, it should only be used when you are in a hurry. Otherwise, shaving will be inefficient, with hair starting to grow back the very next day. Athletes, boxers, bodybuilders, bicyclists, but also wrestlers and professional swimmers are some of the men that find better results in a daily waxing regiment.

What areas of the body can be waxed? Back, chest or legs are the most popular areas of the body that men decide to get waxed. However, the male Brazilian waxing also known as the “Manzilian” has become very popular in the last few years. Waxing for men offers many benefits, including keeping the skin soft, smooth and better looking for longer.

Male waxing has become more popular than ever. Women also seem to prefer men with less hair unsightly hair. This procedure is a simple, inexpensive and efficient way to keep your body hair free and looking better than ever.
