Hair Removal : Summer Lovin’

If you’re someone who prefers to bare all (or nearly all!) on the beach then it may be important to you to make sure that you really are bare yourself. But as summer approaches, it can be difficult to know what to do to prepare for this season of sun, sand and swimsuits.

Legs

It can be tricky to know how to keep your legs hair-free – at the time when they’ll be out most of all day every day! In the lead up to summer, it can be an idea to forgo the razor in favour of a different method. Shaving has a reputation for being the quickest and easiest method of every day hair removal, but it might be an idea to switch this out for a depilatory cream especially because the result you get with hair removal creams last 2x as long as razors. Creams break down the proteins in the hairs, so they break off just beneath the skin. The advantage this has over shaving, is that it doesn’t slice through the hair, leaving any scratchy rough hairs As the cream effectively dissolves the hair, the hair that  is left is softer, and grows finer than stubble. Depilatory Creams are very quick (can take as little as 3-6 minutes) and simple to use, and it can even be done in the shower, just as you would shave.

Underarm and Bikini

Whilst creams are an option, the best prescription for a hair free summer would be to opt for a wax. This may involve growing the hairs out for a short while in preparation (as waxing works best on hairs over 5mm – but can work on hairs as short as 2mm), but can last up to four weeks, giving you a generous amount of time to fit in your holiday, without having to worry about unwanted hair. Waxes also help prevent in-grown hairs so you don’t have to worry about irritation around the delicate areas of the skin

Achieving these results doesn’t have to mean a costly trip to the salon however, as you can get great results from cold wax-strips. Our Wax Strips with Easy Grip are specially designed for underarms and the bikini zone, so however much you want to take off, you can do it from the comfort of your own home! For these sensitive areas, the wax is specially formulated with almond oil and vitamin-E for those with sensitive skin, or with shea butter for those with drier skin to minimise discomfort and leave your skin as soft as it is smooth.
