  1. By Danielle Carlson Photo by Max Rovensky via Unsplash Summer is right around the corner, meaning it’s time of the year to remove our body hair one way or another. If you’re like me and want to find alternatives to shaving but can’t afford laser hair removal, you’re stuck between two options: waxing or threading. Which is the better option? Waxing Waxing, I believe, is the most convenient way to remove body hair. Waxing removes your hair from the root, meaning you’re hair won’t grow back for three to five weeks (depending on your hair type). Waxing also prevents ingrown hairs, which is great if you’re prone to getting those hurtful things. Like all hair removal, waxing does cause some pain. It also could cause some irritation or rash due to the heat of the wax. So, before waxing your whole body, test it out first on a smaller part of your skin. When it comes to making your next appointment for waxing, your body hair has to be grown out by two to three inches, at least. Or else, the hair won’t remove properly. This means you will be a bit hairy between sessions. Threading When it comes to the face, threading is my personal go-to for hair removal. Our face is more sensitive our legs, arms, or other body parts, which means we have to be more gentle. Our faces require the natural oils that waxing so harshly removes. Threading is also more precise compared to waxing. When removing eyebrow hairs, you want to be as careful as possible to avoid pulling too much hair, sometimes waxing can lead to thinner eyebrows than expected. Personally, when waxing my face, I would always break out because of the heat of the wax. With threading, however, my skin is free from redness, irritation, or breakouts. Threading is also more sanitary, we never truly know how clean our wax is and how long it’s been sitting out. So, which is better? If you are removing your facial hairs, threading is the way to go! But if you're removing hair from your legs, arms, or stomach, waxing is the faster, more practical way to do it. Which method do you prefer?
  2. Ok so kind of a long story. About 7 weeks ago I had my arms waxed. I fell in love with how smooth they were and how they looked. I have dark, thick hair so this was a good change. But, after 2 weeks I broke out into this rash that resembled acne all over my arms. I'm assuming this was folliculitis but was very confused as to why it just flared up after a 2 week long period. I researched folliculitis and read that it should be disinfected. So i bought an antibacterial wash (hibiclens) and used it twice a day and every night i covered the affected areas with benzyl peroxide. These things didnt really help and I found myself at the doctors office being prescribed steroids for 5 days. This helped a little but there were still bumps. I went to the dermatologist and they said I had a dry skin condition called keratosis pilaris which I didn't have any signs of until now. I'm assuming that with all of the antibacterial wash and benzyl peroxide that I made my skin so dry that I got another rash? I've been applying lotion to my arms and things are starting to clear up (after 7 long weeks). Ok I know I'm now gonna sound psycho but if I waxed my arms again do you think this will all happen again? Could I prevent the folliculitis? Would my keratosis pilaris flare up? I added a picture of what my arms looked like 2 weeks after the waxing when things started to get bad. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!
  3. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to avoid blemishes after waxing my top lip. I've tried waxing, threading and plucking and no matter what I do I end up with spots there for a few days. Does anyone else have this problem?
