3 Winter Break-Ups to Save Your Skin

3 Winter Break-Ups to Save Your Skin

In the spirit of the new year, what better way to celebrate the new you than by breaking up with old bad habits?

Really, it’s time. Kick these 3 bad skincare habits to curb, like yesterday.

1. Waxing your brows
Yes ok, we sound like a broken record, but just stop it already.  Ditch brow waxing for good!  The skin around the eyes is very delicate & wax rips off (literally) the thin upper layers, leaving you raw, red & irritated.  Pretty much the opposite of the look you were going for these days.  

Make the switch – thread instead for a much gentler alternative with more precise shaping as the end result. The simple process involves a piece of thread that is twisted & pulled along areas of unwanted hair acting like a mini-lasso, lifting the hair directly from the root. Et voila, amazing brows sans the woes of waxing. Book an appointment now (& thank us later).

2. Wearing itchy clothes
Effortless chic is an obvious goal for your #ootd, but how about doing it without sacrificing your skin? Wearing certain fabrics like some scratchy wool blends, while keeping you warm, can irritate & even dry out your skin in the winter. For a quick fix, add a layer between you & fashion – moisturize when you get out of the shower &/or layer a cotton shirt under your favorite sweater for comfort & protection!

3. Suffocating your skin
Tights, leggings & other form-hugging wardrobe essentials that stretch, may also be the reason you get more ingrowns in your nether region & your gams.  Fiber friends, like poly, ester & nylon can make it hard for your skin to breathe & your hairs to grow out of your skin when they’re pressed against you.  Step 1 – do yourself (& your bikini a favor) by sticking to breathable fabrics like cotton & bamboo! Step 2 – considering a long term plan for evicting those pesky ingrowns for good by booking for a free laser consultation – permanent hair reduction, means permanent ingrown hair reduction too (less hair, less ingrowns – get it?  plus, we’re having a sale, no brainer).
