Winter - Do you Follow the Same Routine as Summer?

    Winter - Do you Follow the Same Routine as Summer?

    The nights have drawn in, the clocks have gone back, and the summer dresses have long been put away. That’s right: winter is here — and since we’re always covering up our skin to battle the cold, it can be tempting to let your beauty regimen slip. There are benefits to doing this, but there are also some drawbacks. Let’s take a look at the pros of each approach when it comes to your best winter routine.

    PRO – GROW IT OUT

    You could save money not having to go to the salon to receive a wax or spending money on hair removal products.

    PRO – WAX IT

    Waxing exfoliates and encourages the renewal of skin cells that can cause dry skin.

    At the end of the day, there’s no need to feel that you shouldn’t wax over winter, as there are some easy and quick solutions to keep you looking and feeling great. Rather than heading to the salon, you can perfect hair removal at home with products like our Veet Wax Strips*.

    By regularly waxing through the winter, you’ll make sure that your hairs stay finer and thinner for when the warmer weather returns. Another big issue over the winter is the problem of dry skin, which people moisturize frantically against. Unfortunately, this moisturizing is often wasted on dead skin and blocked pores. Waxing helps renew dead skin cells and also keeps your skin exfoliated, so that when you moisturize, the cream is going where it needs to be.

    It’s true: waxing can seem slightly more painful over the winter. This happens because your body contracts in the cold, even down to your follicles. Since these are holding on tightly to the hairs, it can hurt a bit more when they are pulled out. The very simple way to combat this is to make sure that you wash or bathe the area in warm water before any treatment. This helps relax your skin and opens up your pores, which can significantly reduce the pain and discomfort from waxing — but you need to remember that the area needs to be perfectly dry before applying the wax.

    So this winter, stay on top of your hair removal routine to reap the benefits all year-round!
