Hey ladies! The wedding season and party nights are back in town! SO, IS YOUR BODY HAIR POTRUDING? Gosh! It’s time for some real remedies to get those small dark risings out! Well, with a plethora of hair removal options before you, choosing the correct one can get confusing! Not to worry ladies! Waxing, threading sugaring- all these formats help you remove those small hairs that keep protruding.
Before you jump the gun and choose a technique to deal with those hairs, here’s a checklist of all your queries. Scroll down and get all your answers in a jiffy!
Waxing or Sugaring: Which one should you choose?
The point of waxing is simply to get hold of a resin base and remove those dark hairs from the core (albeit! those dead cells also bid a goodbye to you). Sugaring? It is simply rolling a ball of sugar and lemon combo over your body to remove those hairs. You take your pick.
Will the hair growth be horrible?
Will the hair grow darker and stronger? Not really! It’s just an illusion. The hair re-growth is similar to before and in many cases, it can become less after long-term waxing. But yes, if it is broken rather than being removed from the tip then the hair growth may look thicker.
Does waxing hurt skin cells?
Waxing can have certain effects on sensitive skin and it is best that you consult a dermatologist before you go in for this process. Oh yes! Don’t forget the patch test.
Already done with the process and now you feel a bit scratchy? Aloe Vera gel is your go-to medicine. Over the counter medicines can also increase your sensitivity; so be mindful about that.
Double Dipping: What to follow, what to leave out?
Most of you may think that applying a layer of wax once and then dipping the same into the jar for a second coat is great – but, it brings chances of pathogens and bacteria infiltrating your wax coating. So, one big dip is what you need! (Look out for the techniques that your salon uses as well!)
What’s new in your skincare routine?
Since topical medicines, as well as antibiotics, make the skin hypersensitive, therefore just be careful that before you apply wax or sugaring (remember it’s your choice), do not consume these medicines. Apart from that, do the usual tests to assess the skin’s condition.
Reactions and solutions: Don’t forget!
Witnessing a bit more redness, allergy, and rashes than the usual rate? Well, you need some cure. Did you try out some new type of wax? Or maybe, you are not as friendly to the concoction that you think.
Oral medicines and topical ones are the perfect ones to rest your case on.
Note: Choose your wax well and try to wax the areas a couple of days before the big day.
Is it okay to wax at home?
Salons for waxing can be an extra cost added to your already thread-like budget. Well, ‘do it at home’ has certain restrictions – which you cannot forget!
- Do make it a point to check the sensitivity of your skin with a patch test before you start off! If allergic, try some other technique.
- Oh yes! Get this theory clear that spreading the wax for a longer time on your skin will not result in better hair removal. However, it could very well burn your skin. So, time your spread and remove accordingly!
- It is a known fact that you want to save time with all beauty treatments done on the same day – but ladies save your skin. Make sure your spa day only has ‘waxing’ on its list, leaving out face scrubs, peeling and other masks. You could get a ‘bad beauty experience’ rather than a ‘Kate Moss clone type!’
Are your queries about your skin routine answered now? Well! Stop waiting and remove those small protruding little hairs out of your hands. Make sure you are just next to the bride in terms of looks!
