Being a girl doesn’t make it easy to get summer ready but using the right products sure can simplify the process.
Before summer even hits, the first beauty routine I tackle is removing all unwanted hair. Removing those hairs is already uncomfortable and annoying, so this year I am dumping the shaving routine and opting for waxing.
The effects of shaving only last a few days, requiring you to shave up to twice a week to maintain smooth skin. On the other hand, waxing can remove hair for up to 4 weeks, and be used on hair as short as 2mm.
I recently tried Nair Cire Divine at-home wax kit, and, yes, having never waxed my own legs before, I was scared. To help distract myself, I put on a TV show in the background, laid down a towel to prevent wax getting stuck to my floors and started. The first strip was the hardest to pull off but after a few more it got easier and I started to pull the strips off faster. I will admit, it can hurt for an instant when you first pull off the wax, but after that there is no pain.
Nair Cire Divine is a microwave resin wax that is meant for your legs and body. The wax contains an orange blossom scent that will get you in the summer spirit, and its Argan oil formula moistures and nourises your skin while you wax. It comes in a 400g tub that contains enough wax to remove hair from your lower legs, underarms and bikini area.
How to use: Warm the wax up in your microwave for 2 minutes (be sure to wait 3 minutes before removing it from the microwave) and apply to desired area in thin layers then remove. Be sure to read full instructions as the box contains detailed instructions on how to wax specific areas.
Tips for Waxing:
- Exfoliate your skin before waxing.
- Don’t use ice to numb your skin; it can actually tighten your pores.
- As much as you probably want to, try not to drink a lot of alcohol before waxing. It can cause your skin to be more sensitive.
- Don’t hold your breath. Take deep breaths before removing each wax strip.
- Try to reduce the acidity in your body. They say you can benefit from taking a tums about 20-30 minutes before you wax.
