Protect Your Skin during the Winter Months

I love winter. During this glorious time of the year, I enjoy spending time with family members during the holiday season. I also like to sip hot chocolate while lounging in flannel pajamas. While I adore winter, I don’t like what the cold weather can do to my skin. To prevent your skin from becoming too dry when the weather turns cold outside, drink plenty of water. Also, apply a moisturizer to your skin a couple of times each day. If you must go outdoors in dangerously frigid temperatures, make sure to cover your face properly. On this blog, I hope you will discover smart tips to make your skin glow during the winter months. Enjoy!

Tired Of Shaving? 2 Alternative Options To Help Remove Body Hair

Do you have more hair on your body than you would like to deal with? You may be tired of constantly shaving each day because the stubble starts to appear quickly and your skin never feels as smooth as you would like it to feel. If so, you may be interested in other hair removal techniques that work a bit more efficiently and are not nearly as frustrating as having to apply shaving cream and use a razor each day.

1. Consider Using a Homemade Wax

Instead of shaving, you may want to consider waxing. It may be slightly uncomfortable, but it is a fast way to remove unwanted hair. Instead of purchasing wax from the store, you can even make your own wax with natural ingredients at home. You can make the wax by combining white sugar, raw honey, and lemon juice into a cooking pot and allowing it to simmer until it begins to bubble. You will need to wait for it to cool down before applying it with an applicator stick. You can then place a cloth on top of the wax, press down gently, and then pull the cloth from one side to easily remove excess hair.

2. Look Into Laser Hair Removal 

Although waxing is an alternative option to shaving, you may still be interested in a hair removal method that is a bit more permanent so that you no longer have to mess around with wax, razors or any other products that only provide temporary results. Laser hair removal is the best way to eliminate hair from your body for good. You would need to schedule an appointment with a certified technician who can explain the entire process to you.

During sessions, beams of light are pointed directly at the follicles to break them down and keep them from growing. You may need to undergo several sessions before all the hair is removed from those problem areas. The number of sessions needed all depends on the color and thickness of the hair you want to remove. Hair that is darker and thicker may require a few additional sessions.

If you have too much hair on certain parts of your body, such as your legs, underarms or arms, you may want to find a way to remove it without having to do too much work. If shaving is getting old, you can always start waxing with a homemade wax made with natural ingredients. And, if you want something a bit more permanent, laser hair removal is a great option to consider.
