Now I am a girly girl through and through. I could be perfectly content locked in a bathroom all day with a plethora of beauty products to explore. When it comes to anything beauty I am in my element and can talk, read, research for hours; I love it. There is, however, one beauty grooming necessity that I don’t love and that is hair removal. Getting my eyebrows arched is one thing, but when it comes to peach fuzz, upper lip hair and even that dreaded random chin hair things get far less glamorous.
I have always been super weird when it comes to body hair, and thankfully I am not very hairy. I do however appreciate a fuzz free face. Not only does my makeup apply and look better on a bare, smooth face, but certain techniques for hair removal also act as skin care treatments by manually exfoliating the skin. Since I would like to remain a card-carrying member of #teamnowrinkles for as long as possible, I’m all over that. The skin on my face is very sensitive, and a bit temperamental so I have to be very careful when exploring products to removal facial hair.
Once upon a time, I used to let the girls at the nail salon wax it all off. I stopped doing that after noticing the correlation between those waxing sessions and sudden breakouts. Now I opt for visits to an esthetician for dermaplaning a few times a year and touch up at home with wax strips or depilatory creams when needed. If you’re not familiar with dermaplaning it’s a technique of exfoliation and removal of fine vellus hair aka peach fuzz using a scalpel. I don’t recommend trying this part at home gals; I leave it to the professionals.
Completely Bare has a line of spa-quality hair removal products so we can choose whatever method of hair removal we, please. So whether you have some mentionable or uhem unmentionable areas you need to remove some strands you can do so in the privacy and convenience of your home with completely bare.
I just had a dermaplanning session last weekend and had added two new products to my aftercare routine. With sensitive skin like mine, it’s important to treat the skin immediately after removing hair to reduce the chance of any post-treatment breakouts from irritation. On the same day as any hair removal treatment, I apply the Completely Bare Ingrown Hair Razor Bump & Redness Eliminator. The aloe vera and witch hazel in this solution helps to tighten pores, keep the skin calm and reduces any redness. The salicylic acid in the Completely Bare Ingrown Hair Razor Bump & Redness Eliminator keeps me from worrying about darkness or ingrown hairs. Salicylic acid helps to keep hair follicles clear and encourages cell turnover and skin renewal; if the follicles stay clear, there is less worry about ingrown hairs.
Thankfully I am not a Chewbacca, so full face hair removal is not something I have to do often, allow though my lady mustache requires a quick wax a little more often. The first few days after a hair removal session I’m careful about what products I use. If the moisturizer I use is too thick, it will clog my pores and bring on a breakout. I don’t want bumps covering my now baby butt smooth, glowing face. The Completely Bare Facial Moisturizer & Hair Inhibitor is a perfect vitamin enriched moisturizer. Jojoba oil to and vitamin e nourish and moisturize the skin without clogging pores and helps to keep the skin tone even, diminishes discoloration and reduces hair growth. After applying the Ingrown Hair Razor Bump & Redness Eliminator solution massage a small amount of the Facial Moisturizer & Hair Inhibitor into skin.
