Waxing for summer


Because, in LA, it’s perma-Summer and that can be a LOT of work…

I got my first wax when I was in college and, honestly, it was NOT luxurious. It was at a local nail salon in Long Island. I was in college, and they were cheap…and I didn’t really care. At 32? Different story. I’m much more careful about my body, the way I treat it, who I let touch it (in any capacity) and, of course, my level of pain and discomfort is not for sale.

I was invited to check out European Wax Center® and was actually REALLY surprised at what a great experience I had. Truth be told, when I decided to get my legs waxed I was definitely scared because I had done it once before in college (at that same nail salon). When the hair grew back, I had a TON of ingrown hairs and it was PAIN-FUL. Like, realllly bad, ladies. It was enough to turn me off leg waxing for nearly a decade…but, for whatever reason, I was feeling really enthusiastic about it, and went for it.

The results? AMAZING. No ingrown hairs to-date and the overall experience was nothing like that old nail salon, Haha. The European Wax Center® is clean, the staff is super friendly, reassuring and, best of all, it was 99% painless because of their trademark 4 Steps to Gorgeous™ (seriously, it really is trademarked). Here are the steps:

1) CLEANSE: Their pre-wax cleanser removes makeup, oil or lotion from your skin.

2) PROTECT: Next, they apply pre-wax oil to ensure the wax adheres to pesky hairs and not your skin.

3) GET YOUR WAX ON: Using their exclusive Stripless Comfort Wax™, made from natural beeswax, they gently remove the hair for a virtually painless experience.

4) REJUVENATE: Lastly, they pamper your skin with either their Ingrown Hair Serum (for body) or Calming Cream (for face).
