My Laser Hair Removal Journey: The Sixth Session

Laser Hair Removal Treatment at Laser Chic Image

I had my sixth and last (for now) laser hair removal treatment some days ago. If you remember, I had my fifth laser hair removal session sometime in April, and I was advised to give it a couple of months before coming in for my last session. Well, I began to notice some fine hairs on my chin some weeks ago, so I got my last session booked. For those who do not know or for those who have forgotten what I am on about, since it has been a while I have written about my laser hair removal journey, let me fill you in……

I am quite hairy. It runs in the family! But I like to have my hair where it looks pretty. So my eyebrows, on my head, eyelashes, looks fab. But any other part of my body, I do not like. So when an opportunity came for me to have a laser hair treatment done, I jumped at it! I decided to have the treatment done on my chin as I find it really annoying when I see hairs on it. Before I started this treatment, I used to have it threaded off, while I shaved or used a hair removal cream on every other part. I found that I had to thread my chin every 6 weeks, and I also found threading very painful.

I started this treatment in November 2015, and so far I am seriously amazed at the results. The hair on my chin do not grow at the terrific rate they used to before, and when they do surface, they are so fine, you can hardly feel them, not half as coarse as they use to be before the treatment.

I had about 6 weeks in between all treatments except the last treatment, I waited 3 months before I realised I needed it. The last session at Laser Chic Manchester, went as smoothly as all other sessions. It was quick, I was done in about 10 minutes. It was slightly more uncomfortable than the previous treatments. My skin felt hot for the rest of the day. I guess because it has been a while. Thanks to the Janssen Cosmetics Sensitive Skin Complex, my chin started to fill a lot better after some hours, and it is completely fine now.

So far I am really impressed with the results. I know I may be needing some top-ups in the future, but for now I am happy I no longer have to go through the painful threading so regularly. And I am happy I no longer have to deal with my coarse chin hairs. I love my new hair-free chin. It feels freaking amazing.

If you think you need this treatment, and you are around the North West, I recommend you pop into Laser Chic Clinic, at Didsbury Manchester, for a consultation. They have a huge offer going on at the moment, where you get 2 sessions free when you pay for 4 sessions. They also offer other skincare treatments like Collagen Facials and Facial Aesthetic treatments. And they have an amazing staff that make you feel relaxed and at ease.

What are your thoughts? Have you ever considered having a hair removal treatment done?

Finding the Perfect Jeans & How to Care for Them

Fashion and Style Police Outfit of the Day Picture

 

I know it is summer and the heat wave is still on, I am literally melting away in the heat, and cannot remember the last time I had on a pair of jeans. I am currently surviving in shorts, dresses and skirt. I can’t dare put on a pair of jeans, but once the weather cools down, I know I shall have a good old pair of jeans on. It is a wardrobe necessity for most of us, and I know the struggle most women face shopping for the right pair of jeans because I have faced it too.

Finding the perfect jeans is hard, trust me I know..It could be a while to discover the styles that suit me best, and how to style the pairs that don’t suit me as much. It also took me a long time to discover the stores that stock jeans that look good on me. As a petite woman, I can’t just wear any pair, it is always an issue or the other. Either it is too long, too short, too tight, too baggy, the list of issues goes on and on. But not anymore. I have cracked the code of finding the perfect jeans, and I am going to share a few tips with you.

Try it On

First thing first, I know I am an advocate of online shopping but I won’t advise you to buy your jeans online, only if you have bought a similar pair from the same store before. It is always better to try it in store because sizes always differ from store to store. For example I am a size 10 when shopping for jeans in Dorothy Perkins or Next, but a size 12 in River Island and Topshop. So try it on in store to be sure you have the right size and you are happy with the fit. Also make sure you try your jeans with a pair of heels similar to those you plan on wearing with the jeans, so you get the right length.

 

Go for Added Stretch

Go for jeans with added stretch. Once I tried on a pair of jeans with added stretch, I never looked back. I also got rid of all my other pairs without extrra stretch. A pair of jeans with a bit of added stretch will help slim your tummy area, and flatter your hips/bum area. They always look go and have a amazing fit.

Buy in Pairs

If you find the perfect jeans, pair 2, if you can afford to. I did. I got them in various shades, just incase they are discontinued.

 

Think of the Footwear

When shopping for your jeans, think of what footwear you plan to style it with. The reason being, some jeans do not look good paired with certain footwears. For example, a skinny jeans would look on good tucked into boots, but a flared or slouchy jeans would not.

 

Go for Quality

The more expensive a pair of jeans is, the better the quality. This is a fact. And I had to learn this the hard way. Most of my jeans now start from £40 upwards and they are top quality. Unlike the £20 pairs I used to buy, only for them to lose their fit, and fall apart after a few washes. The best thing to do is to shop for your quality jeans in the sales, so you don’t spend as much.

 

Wash in Cold Water & Dry Indoors

To preserve the colour and lifespan of your jeans, wash inside out in cold water, with a little detergent, only when it is absolutely necessary. And dry indoors so they don’t fade in the sun. Iron inside out.

 

So these are my tips for finding the perfect jeans & how to care for them. Have you found the perfect jeans or are you still in the pursuit of it?
