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).
