As an athlete, it’s inevitable that you’ll be safe from sweating due to strenuous physical activities. I had this challenge in my mind. What if I shave or wax my legs? Will it affect my performance and overall well-being? Waxing is one of the best methods for removing excess hair on your body, particularly your legs. Recently, I discovered a wellness stop that would cater for your waxing needs – Hey Sugar!
Hey Sugar is a waxing salon created to answer all your organic and all natural waxing needs. They use certified organic products that devoid the use of harmful chemicals and toxins that causes skin irritation. It is a waxing hub that keeps client’s privacy and provides professional services.
One of the key benefits of waxing regularly is the amount of time it saves. After waxing, the hair removal outcomes usually last about three to four weeks, which means you can take shaving out of your daily routine.It also causes your hair to grow less and fine over time.
Post waxing care is very important for those newly hair free legs. Since you’ll be prone to irritation, it is important to put antibacterial cream or wash it with soap after 8 hours. A lotion rich in Vitamin E is also essential to help calm the inflammation.
Did you know that waxing is not limited for women? More and more guys are requesting waxing services to common hairy areas such as armpits, legs, chests and backs. So I took the Hey Sugar challenge. It was my second time waxing my legs. Yes, second time. The first one was way back 2010 when my sister dared me to wax my legs. Here are some of the photos during my visit to Hey Sugar Glorietta:
At the start of each service, the skin is prepped through gentle cleansing of the skin using specially formulated in house ethyl alcohol made from pure sugar cane. Cornstarch is then applied to help get rid of extra oil and gives extra protection. The 100% sugar wax is then poured. It is finished off with the application of Virgin Coconut Oil to help soothe the skin and lessen the irritation. The aestheticians are very well trained and courteous.
As a precaution, you should stay away from direct sunlight up to a week after waxing. Moisturize every day. It helps soften the growing hair and keep it from boring into the skin.
