Summer Lovin'

If you’re someone who prefers to bare all (or nearly all!) on the beach then it may be important to you to make sure that you really are bare yourself. But as summer approaches, it can be difficult to know what to do to prepare for this season of sun, sand and swimsuits.

Legs

As very few of you will be donning full length Victorian bathing suits, it can be tricky to know how to keep your legs hair-free – at the time when they’ll be out most of all day every day! In the lead up to summer, it can be an idea to forgo the razor in favour of a different method. Shaving has a reputation for being the quickest and easiest method of every day hair removal, but it might be an idea to switch this out for a depilatory cream. Creams break down the proteins in the hairs, so they break off just beneath the skin. The advantage this has over shaving, is that the tip of the hair is much more round and the regrowth can take up to twice as long as shaving. Depilatory creams are very quick and simple to use, and it can even be done in the shower, just as you would shave.

Underarm and Bikini

There are a massive amount of swimsuits available, in a variety of styles, fits and cuts, so it’s worth taking this in mind when you’re deciding how much to take off. You don’t want to trim your bikini zone to suit one pair of bottoms, to put on your other pair to be met with errant stray hairs!

Whilst creams are an option, the best prescription for a hair free summer would be to opt for a wax. Results can last up to four weeks, giving you a generous amount of time to fit in your holiday, without having to worry about unwanted hair.

Achieving these results doesn’t have to mean a costly trip to the salon however, as you can get great results from cold wax-strips. Our Wax Strips with Easy Grip are specially designed for underarms and the bikini zone, so however much you want to take off, you can do it from the comfort of your own home! For these sensitive areas, the wax is specially formulated with almond oil and vitamin-E.
