Vacation Vacation Vacation

There are so many things to prep before a trip, especially a sun vacation. New bikinis, beach towel, sun screen. In our case bug spray. I don't want to forget any sun dress, or pair of shorts that has wedged their way to the back of my drawers and closets!
Then there's the maintenance, timing your wax accordingly, and doing it right before you leave for the smoothest, cleanest skin.
I have been exfoliating and moisturizing up a storm and the little fine hairs are growing longer and longer so that the wax the day before I leave will rip all the little suckers out by their big roots. This doesn't mean you can't wax while you are already away.  From experience, I just prefer the wax and technique of my usual Esthetician.
If you feel the need to prep with some colour on your skin, try a cream product or spray tan, those booths get nothing but bad press and Skin Cancers are no fun!
Polished toes, are the finishing touch for any open toed shoe occasion. Polish will generally last 4-6 weeks, depending on how hard you can be on your feet. But the closer to take off the better.
And remember, your Esthetician hates saying no, so book early to ensure the timing is perfect for you!
