Get Bikini Ready: Summer Hair Removal Tips

Summer Waxing Shaving Hair Removal Summer 2011

Hot summer days mean ladies everywhere are baring {almost} all.  Here are some tips for keeping you confident and beautiful all summer long.

1. Shaving

Shaving is a necessary evil (for those of us not quite ready for laser hair removal), but it can be rough on your skin.  Shaving everyday in the right way, however, keeps you looking great.

  • Best time to shave is at the end of a warm shower, when the skin plumps and exposes more of the hair follicle.  Not only is more hair exposed for trimming, but also softens hair and to keep it from snapping, which helps prevent ingrown hairs. The same daily shaving routine is actually more effective, and easier on your legs.
  • Shaving is much more ideal for legs than for bikini line, because of how aggravating it can be for skin. No matter where you’re shaving, though, keep a bottle of of Tend Skin handy to avoid bumps.

2. Waxing

Especially during swimsuit season, waxing your bikini line is essential. Want to avoid the invasive nature of getting a wax in a salon? Follow these tips and do it at home!

  • Just let me get this out: DON’T shave your bikini line. You’ll be tempted to, but this easily irritated area can’t take that kind of abuse.
  • Make sure you’re not waxing more than once a month, and you’re letting the area breathe after doing so.  Your skin needs refreshing to avoid the sort of irritation that causes bumps and ingrown hairs.
  • The perfect at-home waxing kit makes the brazilian process quick, painless (ok, not completely painless) and incredibly private. Try an easy microwavable product like Gigi, whose affordable kits help you get the body you want in the convenience of your home.
