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.

Skincare Changes in Your 30s and How to Deal with Them

I’m sure you must have noticed that your skin is a lot different from it was in your 20s. In your 20s your skin was brighter and definitely more youthful. But as the years go by, the environment and hormonal changes can take a toll on your skin. And that may lead to various skincare changes.

You can combat the changes in your skin with the right skincare routine. Here are some skincare changes you should take note of in your 30s and how to deal with them.

Your face is not as smooth as it used to be

When you’re in your 30s you’ll notice more wrinkles on your forehead, crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes and smile lines near your mouth. The reason is that as you grow older the rate at which your cells turnover slows down. Your skin doesn’t recover as fast as it used to.

 

Solution #1: Moisturize with sunscreen daily

The wrinkles and fine lines are all a sign of premature ageing and nothing beats wrinkles and fine lines as moisturizer. Wrinkles and fine lines are aggravated with exposure to the sun.

Apply sunscreen every day especially before you step out of the house. Make sure that you use a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or above. For better results, you can incorporate skincare products that contain retinol. Retinol helps to increase the production of collagen and improve cell turnover. This will help with your wrinkles and fine lines.

 

Your skin is has a dull appearance

Since your cells’ turnover is slower in your 30s it takes a longer time for new cells to show up on the surface. The dead skin cells hide the new skin cells and that makes your skin look dull.

 

Solution #2: Exfoliate regularly

Exfoliation will help you to get rid of the dead skin cells and reveal the new skin cells. Once the dead skin cells are out of the way, your skin will be brighter and your skin will begin to glow.

There are many healthy exfoliating scrubs out there. But you need to remember to be gentle on your skin. Don’t exfoliate your skin every day, instead restrict it to only 2 or 3 times a week. That will reduce the possibility of irritating your skin.

 

Your skin starts to break out with cystic acne

Remember when you were a teen and you battled with acne and you longed to be an adult so that you’ll never have to deal with acne again? Sadly, acne never goes away. And in your 30s they turn into cystic acne.

As you grow older, your skin gets less resilient to acne and so it takes a longer time for your acne to disappear.

Solution #3: Make acne treatment part of your daily skincare routine

Your skin gets dryer as you age. This makes your skin prone to inflammation and irritation. To keep your acne in check, you have to fight your acne daily with products that contain anti-inflammatory properties. Whether you use a cream, cleanser or toner, make sure that it has anti-inflammatory properties that will combat any sign of acne.

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.
