Ingrown Hairs.......

Well no one really wants to talk about them, they are aren't pretty and can also be quite painful. On some occasions they have to be lanced out by a doctor. People ask all the time, "what can I do about Ingrown hairs?"
Here are a few tips:
1. Exfoliate almost daily in the shower or bath. Use a loofah or my favorite is Dermalogica's Exfoliating Cloth. I use a liquid soap and wash/exfoliate my entire body daily.
2. If you still notice some ingown hairs, gently squeeze. Sometimes the coagulated hair will pop right out. Do not squeeze so hard that you break or damage the skin. Your Esthetician should do this for you when you visit for a wax.
3. Shaving against the hairs causes root growth confusion. In other words, DROP THE RAZOR!
4. PFB Vanish is an ingrown hair treatment. This roll on gel exfoliates and moisturizes and is specific for ingrown hairs, razor burn (who does anything that burns?) and bumps. Contact me if you wish to order a bottle, $17
5. Avoid lace underwear the day of waxing, it causes more irritations.
really tight underwear or also causes irritations.
Hope these quick and easy tips help you get your bikini area ready for Spring Break!

A Special Treat

The other day I visited my client at the Cancer Agency. She is  in the hospital having radiation done. When we are sick in the hospital, there is not a lot of things we want. The gift of pampering can really lighten ones spirits. Flowers and candies are always really lovely, but sometimes we don't have an appetite and if you can't change the flower water, well we all know how horrid that smell can be.
How about the gift of pampering? If you know someone bed ridden at home or in the hospital SpaMobile is an incredibly thoughtful and heartwarming gift to receive. I am always amazed by the power of optimism, and the strength people show when they seem to be out of energy. I love making people feel better, and what better way than a massage and painting a beautiful colour on your hands and feet!
Remember to look after your body; drink water, exercise and laugh!

The Secret to Dating....

Usually your Esthetician is the first to find out your pregnant or dating. It comes with the personal territory, and for that it is also the reason you become trusting of your "waxer".
It is in my experience, that when dating occasionally or even just seeing what's out there that you always make sure you are ready. And by ready, I mean cleaned up. This is the reason you should be booking regularly for your waxes. Every 4-6 weeks, this not only ensures the pain is less, but it keeps everything under control. Underarms, Legs, Bikini,Upper Lip and even Brows. All the things these guys are looking at. If you feel comfortable you come across as more confident!
Now gentlemen, don't laugh but this goes for you too! Chest is a totally personal choice, some men prefer it bare, some hairy. Others leave the choice to the woman. But there is never a choice about back hair, get it gone! A little or a lot, it doesn't matter, a few minute of pain is well worth the rewards. No woman is going to massage a mass of hair, and why work on your deltoids if they are covered up with hair?
Remember, hair should be about a quarter of an inch, don't plan to hot tub or sauna right after and hot hot showers should always be avoided! Regular waxing (with no shaving in between) will decrease the amount of hair and size of root over time.
And if you are still shaving....... well just give wax a chance!
