There is beauty in not having to shave or wax or whatever else you do to tidy up and de-gorilla-ify. Smooth legs, no ingrown hairs, no prickly stubble.
I started getting laser hair removal done years ago as my sensitive skin was getting razor burn, which is so ugly and uncomfortable. While in Whistler I treated myself. I don't do pedis or manis or facials or other girl stuff but I was willing to splurge a bit in the name of being low maintenance to keep up with my three boys. There is nothing worse than trying to shower and clean up with crying babies on the other side of the glass or even worse the sound of fighting or yelling or the dreaded sound of silence which means things have really gone sideways and there is no way you can risk shaving your legs if you value your home.
For me it was a small price to pay...plus when I am super old and in the hospital I don't want to have to ask someone to shave my pits or tidy up my hoo hoo...who needs that embarrassment?
It's really important when considering and laser treatments to go to a reputable and highly trained operation. Results will be quicker and the experience will be safe and worry free.
When doing my rounds to pick where to go I immediately liked the staff and the inviting space that was clean and very professionally presented. They answered my questions with ease and had top of the line equipment which makes a huge difference.
So... I am not naturally a super hairy person but I am also not naturally hair free. I have had several sessions done on my legs, underarms and private bits to get to an easy peasy level of being groomed. So far no laser can tackle light blond hair so my peach fuzzy bits will have to stay, I suppose that will be the same for white hairs when that nonsense starts happening. All the more reason to consider investing in treatments as soon as you can. Enjoy the results for the most years possible and before your hair looses it's colour with aging.
For some reason writing this blog I get lots of people assuming I am an expert of all things and have been asked about hair removal more than once so I thought I would share my secrets just in time for you to get a nice start of your own for beach season.
Each treatment the amount of hair decreases substantially and if you follow the advice of the technician and the schedule for treatments you can see amazing results in as little as three treatments. It's quick and easy. I won't lie, it can be a little painful...like a rubber band snapping your skin in some parts....but it's over so fast and when you think of the joy of not having to shave it's well worth a little sting here and there. I have only done waxing once but I would choose laser over that ripping horror any day.
So there we go friends...no need to send me a personal message as it's all out there and I am fine with sharing the laser hair removal love and sending everyone to North Okanagan Skin & Laser. I have yet to try anything else there but now that I am done with hair removal they have so many other interesting services to explore.
Ending this with a funny little image I found on Pinterest, find it an mounds of other summery fun inspirations on my summer love Pinterest board.
We all have our faults and features...love your body and enjoy the beach...life is to short to compare to ourselves to models in magazines when there is fun to be had. Just take care of yourself and your own unique beauty will radiate like the summer sun. oxo
