Why we consider Laser Hair Removal an essential part of modern beauty and skin care?
Beauty is subjective. Trends in visual appearance also tend to transform, as tastes and styles change over weeks, months, years, and decades. Today, women and men have more inspiration and options than ever before in which to define beauty.
In this article, we’ll explore trends in beauty and a visual appearance that are defining today’s day and age.
Skincare Rules The Day
Gorgeous skin is the ultimate sign of beauty. By following a skincare regime that moisturizes, nourishes, and cleanses skin pores helps keep skin glowing all year long.
Since every person is different, the exact skincare routine could vary, based on factors such as skin type, seasonality, or sensitivities.
For instance, during colder, harsher months, skin can be drier than usual due to the lack of moisture in the air and surrounding environment. Using skin products that moisturize helps to keep skin soft, supple, and glowing during the colder seasons.
Significant factors that can contribute to dry skin include:
Heat – While no one wants to feel a chill, the very things that keep us warm also contribute to dry skin. When in use, wood-burning stoves, space heaters, central HVAC, and fireplaces reduce humidity levels in the home and workplace.
Hot Showers and Baths – On cold days, the thought of a hot shower or bath sounds like the best way to warm up, get ready for the day, or relax and de-stress after a long day. However, the extended exposure to hot water in winter months dehydrates the skin. Instead of running water at the hottest setting available, choose a lukewarm or warm/hot water setting.
Additional steps you can take to reduce skin dehydration when bathing is by using bath products that contain essential vitamins, minerals, and moisturizers. These products could include bath soaps, body washes, bubble baths, bath bombs, and other water treatments. Products without harsh chemicals or ingredients help to keep skin looking, feeling, and smelling fabulous.
During the warmer summer months, dry skin may not be as pervasive, as this season provides humidity. However, summer and spring come with their own set of skincare concerns.
Humidity, sweat, pollution, and microbial irritants such as pollen, dust, and dander can clog skin pores. Clogged pores contribute to breakouts, acne, blackheads, and other skin problems.
Other factors, such as exposure to the sun and damaging UV rays, also pose another vector for skin imperfections and damage.
Implementing a skincare regime that addresses your summer skincare concerns explicitly is key to keeping your skin looking healthy and bright.
For instance, using a lighter moisturizer with UV protection keeps your skin moist, while also blocking harmful UV rays from damaging your skin. It helps keep skin looking ‘dewy’ without appearing greasy or oily.
(During winter months, using a heavier moisturizer helps to quench dry skin.) The use of this type of product helps to address fine lines of again and other problem areas of the face.
To avoid the potential for long-term skin damages or imperfections such as the formation of sunspots, moles, or other signs of aging, be mindful of the time you spend in the sun. Use sunscreen to cover all exposed areas of your body when outdoors and consider wearing a hat. A stylish cap protects your head and face from sun exposure. By following these tips, you’re taking appropriate steps to protect against sunburn and skin damage.
Luckily, during the warmer months, the urge to take a scorching shower usually isn’t as strong. Taking cold or lukewarm showers and baths help to keep your skin comfortable during the hottest time of the year.
By following a comprehensive skincare routine, you are protecting the most valuable asset you have – your skin.
Laser Hair Removal Makes Life Easier
Our hair – or lack of it – has always helped to define beauty in our society and culture.
When added collectively throughout a lifetime, both men and women spend untold hours and thousands of dollars removing unwanted hair from their bodies.
Traditional hair removal methods, including tweezing, shaving, waxing, threading, and sugaring, are all viable temporary solutions to remove unwanted facial and other types of body hair.
Most times, temporary hair removal only lasts for a day or two, until hair follicles regenerate new hair growth, repeating the need to shave, wax, tweeze, sugar, or thread for optimal results.
In some cases, these hair removal methods can contribute to ingrown hairs or skin irritation. In other cases, they can be inconvenient and tedious.
Laser hair removal provides a longer-term solution to people who want to spend less time keeping hair growth under control. This treatment is a viable solution for both men and women.
Areas where laser hair removal is useful include:
Hairline – If you have uneven or fine hairs growing along your hairline, laser hair removal helps to ‘clean up’ your hairline for a chic, more sophisticated appearance.
Upper Lip – Everyone has facial hair. If you notice thick or dark hairs growing above your upper lip, it’s natural to want to get rid of them. Laser hair removal provides a long-term solution than tweezing, waxing, threading, shaving, or using a hair removal cream. After completing the recommended number of treatments, people can enjoy a clean upper lip for weeks and months to come.
Chin – Have you noticed little chin hairs you didn’t use to have? If so, plucking, waxing, threading, and shaving offer temporary relief from this slightly embarrassing new development. Laser hair removal addresses the issue directly at the hair follicle. People who undergo the procedure can worry less about these pesky hairs detracting from their overall beauty.
Bikini Area – When bikini season is in full swing, there is nothing more annoying than unwanted hair growth! Traditional hair removal options such as waxing, shaving, and hair removal creams can leave skin irritated and bumpy, which is never a good look. Laser hair removal helps to alleviate these issues for the entire season.
