The much dreaded colder Winter months are finally here! Can you believe it, how did that happen?! It feels like we blinked and Summer was over! It's time to look out your scarves, long sleeved jumpers, boots and cosy fluffy socks and practically live in them from now until at least late spring next year! For those who are regular to waxing, you may be thinking that the cold winter days and nights is reason enough to neglect your hair removal routine You won't have your legs out or be off to the beach anytime soon when it's so cold and miserable out there, so why would you bother with hair removal as often or at all through Winter?! Let us tell you why you should keep up waxing in Winter, or if you don't wax already, why Winter is the best time to begin waxing in preparation for Summer 2019!
When it comes to waxing, it is important you try your best to keep to a routine. We know how tempting it can be to let your waxing regime slip in the colder months where it may seem senseless to be hair free but it is vital that you do not interrupt your hair's growth cycle. Did you know, by keeping up your waxing routine throughout this half of the year is more beneficial to you than you think? By sticking to a routine of waxing every 4-6 weeks regardless of the time of year, you will be weakening the hair follicles and the hair will therefore grow back at a much slower rate, resulting in a longer period of time before you need to make your next appointment. So realistically, if you start your waxing now, by the time Summer arrives you will be able to enjoy being hair free and smooth for much longer in the months you want to most!
Dry skin is a nightmare in the Winter - I'm sure we can all relate! Waxing exfoliates and encourages the renewal of skin cells that can cause dry skin. This will keep your skin healthy and hydrated which is a bonus as well as being totally hair free! However, you should never use waxing as a replacement for exfoliation completely. It is still as important to keep your skin fresh and exfoliated throughout winter too at home! We recommend you try using the Ruff Stuff Body Scrub which we stock in the salon. This is a natural sugar scrub which can be used anywhere on your body, and works excellent both pre/post wax as well as in between your waxing appointments!
We have one more reason as to why it us best to keep to a strict waxing routine which you were probably unaware of. Tights are bought by almost every girl at this time of the year! They are a staple in our drawers during Winter and so easy to throw on in the mornings. However who wants unsightly leg hair poking through your tights?! What you probably did not know is that wearing tights can actually cause havoc with your unwaxed hairy legs! The friction and static that comes from the material of the tights will rub against your skin all day, causing irritation and unhappy hair follicles! Take care of your skin all year round - it's very delicate, particularly Winter!
We hope that we have managed to convince you that it is worth keeping up your waxing routine over Winter. Or if you are considering waxing for Summer next year, by beginning now! You will only reap the benefits from doing so and your waxing results next Summer will be totally worth it! What are you waiting for? Book in today and get your skin ready for Summer now!
