Hair Removal : Winter - Do You Follow the Same Routine As Summer?

The nights are longer, the clocks have gone back, and the summer dresses have been put away. Now we usher in the time of sweaters, long sleeves, thick tights and thermal pants! Because we’re packing our bodies away for the winter, it can be tempting to let the beauty regimen slip. There are benefits to doing this, but there are also some drawbacks. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of letting your winter coat grow out!

There’s no need to feel that you shouldn’t wax over winter, as there are some easy and quick solutions to keep you looking and feeling great. Rather than heading to the salon, you can get quality results from home with Veet® Wax Strips, and the Easywax™ roll-on system. By regularly waxing through the winter, you’ll make sure that the hairs stay finer and thinner for when it’s time to whip the legs and underarms out again.

A big issue over winter is dry skin, which people moisturize frantically against. The fact is that this moisturizing is often wasted on dead skin and blocked pores. Waxing helps renew dead skin cells and keeps your skin exfoliated so that when you moisturize, the cream is going to where it needs to be.

Waxing can seem slightly more painful over winter, which is because in the cold your body contracts, even down to your follicles. Because your follicles are holding on tightly to the hairs, it can hurt a bit more when they are pulled out. The very simple way to combat this is to make sure that you bathe the area in warm water before any treatment. This helps relax your skin and open up your pores, which can significantly reduce the pain and discomfort from waxing. Just remember to completely dry the area before applying the wax.

So this winter, stay on top of your hair removal routine to reap the benefits year round, as well as at that last minute holiday party.
