The Dangers of DIY Hair Removal

FYBC 7:11.jpg

Maintaining your bikini line is just part of life. Not only is it annoying but it can be painful and tough to do. Although shaving or waxing in the comfort of your own home is cost effective, do you want to be taking the cheap route when it comes to your body?There are always ways to cut corners financially when it comes to beauty services, like giving yourself a manicure or highlighting a few strands yourself…but at home waxing can go horribly wrong if done incorrectly. If you are considering waxing your bikini area yourself this summer,  here are some reasons why you should leave it strictly to us.

Scarring – If you wax goes terribly wrong, for example, you tear the skin, you could scar. This is worst case scenario, but it happens more than you may think. Hot wax and tender skin are nothing to mess with.

Burns – Although you may have read up on the procedure and are being extra careful, waxing yourself is never a good idea. First of all, you are unable to see the entire area you are waxing…even with the help of a mirror. That means your placement of the wax is not going to be spot on. Because you don’t have the same vantage point as a professional would, there is room for error and burns.

Irritation & Infections – No matter how clean your home is, it will not be as sterile as our waxing studio. If you are waxing yourself in your bathroom or anywhere in your home for that matter, you are unintentionally exposing yourself to bacteria which can cause skin irritation and serious infection.

Leaving the waxing to our professionals is the best and safest bet. Our staff is professional and trained to help you feel confident and beautiful! If you are ready to get rid of unwanted hair in a quick and painless manner, book your next waxing session with Forever Young Body Clinic.

Try These DIY Organic Face Masks

fybc

 

 

Honey, Green Tea, and  Oatmeal Mask

This mask is wonderful for combination, oil or skin with acne. Just as if you were preparing your nighttime tea, soak a green tea bag in boiling water. Next, squeeze out the water from the tea bag into a mixing bowl. With the same tea bag, boil more water and use it to steam your face. Once the facial steaming is complete, begin concocting your face mask.

Mix the ground oatmeal, vitamin c powder and honey in a medium bowl. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the amount of each of the ingredients. Keep in mind that too much vitamin c will not only be hard to dissolve in the water but also it can irritate your skin. Next, apply the mask to your face and neck, but do so in an environment you aren’t afraid to get messy in. This mask takes some time to harden, so we suggest doing this mask when you have a minimum of an hour. There is no set amount of time to keep this mask on. We say the longer the better.

Ingredients:

2 Teaspoons honey

2 Teaspoons Ground Oatmeal

2 Teaspoons Water

Green Teabag

1/2 Teaspoon Vitamin C Powder

Oats, Eggs and Green Tea

Cut open 3 green tea teabags and empty the inside contents into a bowl. Squeeze a small amount of your normal moisturizer into the bowl. If you are looking to exfoliate, add  sea salt or granulated sugar into the mixture. Next, add in the 2 egg yolks, the rolled oats and a small amount of water and mix these ingredients together. If you are having trouble reaching the desired consistency, add more oats and water. In order to open the pores of your skin, rise gently with hot water before applying. Keep the mask on for 15 minutes then rise!

Ingredients:

3 Green Teabags

Facial moisturizer

Sea Salt or Granulated Sugar

2 Egg Yolks

Water

Rolled Oats

Accentuate Your Beauty!

fybc.jpg

Half the fun of Valentine’s Day is dressing up and feeling like a goddess. There are always ways to accentuate your beauty and you don’t have to go to a salon to do it. Here are a few, simple tips that can help you feel like a million bucks come the 14th.

Kissable Is Good

Preparing your skin for the holiday of love begins with the lips! Be ready for a million kisses from your loved one but making sure your lips are smooth and luscious. Start by exfoliating your lips with a lip balm that contains alphy hydroxyl. Next, moisturize by applying a Shea Butter based balm. Try to stay away from anything overly scented or flavored. Lastly, try a tinted lip balm for a pop of color. These three steps will leave your lips feeling moisturized and completely kissable!

 Don’t Cake It On

Dry and dull skin is to be expected during this time of year. Piling on foundation to cover up dry and dull skin is the worst thing you could do. Not only will more foundation bring attention to your irritated skin but also it will continue to dry it out. By applying less foundation this Valentine’s Day you will create the look of fresh, rejuvenated skin. A creamy formula, like a BB cream when applied with your fingers will allow more of your skin to show through which makes you look more awake. Less is more for your skin this Valentine’s Day.

Make Things Easy With A Wax

Being hair free is important for this special night. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic we offer quick and painless waxing of just about any area of the body. A wax with us is effortless and will leave your skin feeling smoother than ever before. With a wax, you wont have to worry about razor bumps or irritated skin.
