Summertime Necessities!

FYBC 7:6Part of feeling and looking your best lies within the little details. We all have our go-to summer fragrance, nail color, and hairstyle, but what about the seasonal essentials you may have overlooked? Here are 4 beauty essentials to incorporate into your summertime routine.

Facial Care- Since sun exposure is tough to avoid during the summer months, a great facial mask will come in handy. For some, the sun can dry out the surface of the skin whereas, for others, skin can become oil. Regardless of the effect, the sun has on your skin, a facial can help skin equalize and return to its normal state. If you are looking for a more personal, custom skin care, enlist the help of a professional.

Hair Removal- Short shorts, bikinis and pool days mean you need a reliable way to maintain unwanted body hair! Although shaving and waxing at home are easy, it is certainly not the best approach. Finding the help of a professional means that you don’t have to deal with painful razor burn and embarrassing razor bumps. If you are new to waxing in a salon, you will be pleasantly surprised with how pain-free and quick the process is. Find a salon you can trust and spend fewer summer days hiding shaving/waxing mishaps.

SPF Moisturizer- One of the easiest ways to ensure you are always protected from the sun is to use a skin moisture that has SPF incorporated into it. This is a great way to minimize your exposure to damaging UV rays and hydrate your skin. Look for a moisturizer with an SPF level of at least 30.

Tinted SPF Lip Balm- The perfect lip balm is a dime a dozen! Although there are so many great ones out there, finding a scent, shade and consistency that you love can be hard. Our personal favorites include the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment by Sephora, Jouer Lip Sheer in Santorini and Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Healthy Blush.

Be prepared for whatever comes your way this summer! If you are looking for beauty assistance, contact us at Forever Young Body Clinic today or book an appointment with us today. We have experience and trained professionals ready to help you.

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.
