Laser vs Waxing

To wax or to laser? That is the question for many. Waxing has been around for a long time and is very popular. It works by applying warm wax onto a hairy area and then smoothing down a wax strip on top. The wax sticks on to the hair, and when the strip is pulled away, the hair is also pulled along with it. It can be a bit uncomfortable (many find it painful) but it does the job of getting the hairs off from the root. While Laser Hair Removal treatment is the removal of body hair using the technology of laser. The treatment works by targeting the hair follicles with laser light. The heat damages the hair follicle and stops them from producing any more hair.

To Wax Or To Laser

I prefer and recommend having a Laser Hair Removal Treatment over waxing if you can afford to. The treatments can be quite pricey but you clearly I have tried both ways and I found the laser method to be the most effective way of getting rid of body hairs. My laser treatment was on my chin. I had annoying hairs on there, so I decided to get them off using laser. It worked great. I had 6 Laser Hair Removal Treatment sessions in total, and the treatments left my chin feeling and looking completely hair free. You can read all about my Laser Hair experience here, here and other related blog posts.

With waxing, I still have some areas waxed quite regularly, like my eyebrows. Using laser on them won’t be ideal, so waxing does the job for that and other bits.

A SkinBase Microdermabrasion Treatment

You all know how crazy I am when it comes to beauty and skincare products. Well I am also very into skincare treatments. I neglected my skin for many years, and I am actually playing catch up now. My skin is great but I would love to clear a few pigmentation issues. I had the golden opportunity to have a SkinBase Microdermabrasion Treatment a week ago, and my facial skin is still thanking me for it today. My skin has never looked so good.

 

What is Microdermabrasion

For those who have never heard of the Microdermabrasion Treatment, it is a non-invasive procedure that uses exfoliating tiny crystals or a diamond tip to help remove the layer of dead skin cells. When you remove the top layer of skin, the body interprets it as an injury. The body then quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new healthy ones.

My Microdermabrasion Treatment

My treatment was at Professional Eyes Studio in Northwich on a Saturday. As soon as I walked into the studio, I felt relaxed and ready for some pampering. The therapist examined my entire face. And then my face was cleansed of all makeup using a cleanser and the treatment started. I found the treatment completely painless and I was comfortable all through the treatment. A wand delivering a fine jet of abrasive crystals was used all over the skin. If I was to describe the sensation of the machine, it felt like an intense scrubbing on the face. Like a buff and polish of the skin.

Once the treatment was done, a simple moisturiser without any essential oils, AHA’s, glycolics or retinol was applied to replenish lost moisture and to prevent the skin becoming dry and peeling. The moisturiser used after this treatment must contain SPF to protect the skin from excessive sun exposure

The entire Microdermabrasion treatment was about 30 minutes. It ended with a hand massage which felt so good. As an online entrepreneur, I am forever online typing one thing or the other on a gadget, so having a hand massage was exactly what my tired fingers needed.

Microdermabrasion Aftercare Advice
  1. Heavy makeup should not be used for the first 12 hours after the treatment.
  2. No swimming, facial waxing or fake tan application for the first 24 hours.
  3. Saunas, sun beds, sun exposure, botox, collagen injections or dermal fillers should not be used for the first 48 hours.
  4. Anti-ageing creams, AHAs, Glycolics, retinol or exfoliating products should not be used for the first 72 hours.

Who needs Microdermabrasion

I would recommend this treatment to anyone dealing with pigmentation, acne scarring, wrinkles and fine lines. SkinBase™ is the leading Microdermabrasion treatment.  There are over 2,000 accredited salons and spas in the UK & Ireland, so there should be a salon near you. The therapist at the salon would examine your skin during the first consultation to determine the course of treatment you need. Treatments plans can vary from single ‘beauty boost’ treatments to courses of 6 to 20 treatments every 7 to 10 days.

I had a single beauty boost treatment as my skin didn’t need a course of treatments. But I will be having a treatment every couple of months as I loved the glow the treatment has given my skin. It feels brand new. My skin has never looked this good and I am loving it so much. I didn’t have any reactions after the treatment except a bit of dryness which went away after 24 hours. I used lots of Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion for the first 48 hours to replenish moisturise. It helped a lot. And I did splash my face with cold water once after the treatment when my face felt dead dry. With lots of mosituriser afterwards.

 

You can check out the short video below to see how my skin glowed after the treatment. The picture above does not do it justice.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews Beauty Caffe & Aveeno

I am always looking out for new great skincare products to try. I have heard a lot of good things about Aveeno. So I knew I had to try some of the products and see for myself. Beauty Caffe Beauty Scrub also landed on my doorstep some weeks ago, and I was keen to try that out too!

This Coffee Scrub is natural and organic. It leaves the skin soft, smooth and hydrated from head to toe. This product is very high in antioxidants to nourish and protect your skin, helping to repair and rejuvenate your body.

I have used it a few times now and I really like what it does to my skin. I apply it all over my body in the shower and it leaves my skin feeling soft and supple.

The Coffee Scrub is made with fresh ground coffee beans, brown sugar and Himalayan Rock Salt which helps scrub away the dead flaky skin.

 

PROS
  1. It does all it promises on the pack. I love how smooth my skin is after using this scrub.
  2. It contains only natural and organic products which is amazing.
  3. I like the light RRP of £12.99.

CONS
  1. The packaging is not practical. It can be a bit messy to use.

 

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion

I have heard a lot of good things about the Aveeno brand so I decided to test some of the products for myself. I got this Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion some days ago and I have been using it everyday. This lotion is clinically proven to go beyond 24 hour moisturisation and replenish the skin’s natural barrier function, to significantly improve the condition of dry skin in just 2 weeks. And I think it does just that.

I got this lotion from my local Boots to help with my dryness after having a facial treatment – Crystal Microdermabrasion Treatment. It is a treatment that sheds off the dead facial skin but more on that treatment later.

Aveeno Daily Moisturising After Shower Mist

This Aveeno Daily Moisturising After Shower Mist is made from oat axtract, which intensely nourishes dry skin in one application. I have been using it for some days now and I really like it. Never used anything like this shower mist before.
