Fact: We lasered away most of our unwanted body hair years ago.
Myth: Lasered hair never comes back.
Fact: We occasionally have random hairs that pop up around our sock line (why?), above our knees, along our bikini line and under our armpits.
Myth: We can laser all of these random hairs into oblivion.
Fact: Some of these new hairs are white and since our skin is pretty much a similar colour this does not make for an ideal laser hair-removal session, since the hair must have some pigmentation in it.
Solution: We’re using Nair Wax Ready-Strips for Legs & Body to help keep our skin looking and feeling soft, smooth and hair free.
Easy to use and ideal as a DIY stay-at-home beauty option, these wax strips are infused with softening honey and milk extracts so don’t irritate our sensitive skin. They are simple to separate from their plastic packaging, and without the need for heat too, before we lay them wax-side-down on our skin. The removal of each one is quick like a Bandaid and effectively removes even the shortest of hairs. We’re not going to say it’s entirely painless. The wax strips are, after all, pulling out our hair but our discomfort is minimal and over and done with in about 10 minutes. The remaining wax strips last too, often for a month or two as they wait inside our bathroom cabinet until we notice new random hairs popping up and we start this process all over again.
Nair Wax Ready-Strips for Legs & Body, from $18.50, available at Shoppers Drug Mart stores.
