Summer is in full swing and I can’t wait to relax in the sun and soak up that slow pace lifestyle for a little while. Sadly, I’m still in winter mode: pale skin, hairy legs. Eek! So now it’s time to prep for my fun vacays.
The first step to revealing beautiful skin is waxing. Over the weekend I stopped by a local . Your first wax is free so I mean, why not, right?! It was actually a pretty nice visit. The atmosphere is more clinical than relaxing. I did feel a little rushed during my reservation which to be honest, I kind of appreciated. Between 3 jobs, I don’t have time to spend all day getting waxed. I was in and out in a flash.
One thing they did take time with though was the prep and aftercare of the waxing. They have a 4 step routine that they use for all waxing: cleanse, protect, wax & rejuvenate. They call it 4 Steps to Gorgeous™. How cute is that?! Sounds like a winning combo, if you ask me! And the waxing itself actually didn’t hurt. I totally see why they call it Comfort Wax™. They use the black wax, which is the only kind I like!
After I have my skin all nice and hair-free, I like to give myself a little tanning boost. Knowing how harmful the sun is, I try to stay out of it as much as possible, but that results in my skin being extremely pale, like on the verge of sickly. No thanks! I’ve used so many different self tanners, but my new favorite is St. Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan. You actually put this stuff on in the shower and rinse it off. It can’t get any easier than that!
These two simple steps help me prep for summer and really make me feel empowered to reveal my gorgeous summer skin! Don’t you always have so much more fun when you feel good? I know I do!
