With the winter months upon us, it’s time to say goodbye to shorts, sandals and bikinis and fill our closets with sweaters, boots, hooded jackets and other warm clothes.
In the cold weather, most people forget all about body waxing and putting on sunscreen. Some even stop caring for their skin, entirely! What they don’t realize is forgetting about these things puts their skin’s health in harm’s way.
It’s understandable why many people ignore waxing in the winter; what’s the point of removing body hair even everything’s going to be covered? This is what we hear from most people.
Little do these people know that waxing is not just about hair removal, it brings a lot of other benefits too which helps keep the skin healthy!
The Winter is Rough
Winter is known for being rougher on our skin. Everyone experiences chapped lips, flaky skin or rough hands during winter months because the lack of moisture and dry environment cracks the skin. So, it becomes even more important to care for the skin during winter months, even if everything is covered up.
During the cold months, you’ll have to moisturize more, drink more water, eat dry food and keep your lips moisturized with a lip balm. In comparison to these precautions, waxing might not seem very important, but you’ll be surprised to know that this method of hair removal can actually contribute to the health of your skin.
No More Dry Skin
With waxing hair is removed from their roots, but it also gives an exfoliating effect. When wax is pulled from the skin, it takes away all the dead skin cells leaving behind a new layer of skin. Dead skin cells prevent the skin from absorbing nutrients from body lotions and creams and given that dry skin is a major problem during the winter, you can’t afford losing nutrients.
Moreover, winter makes the skin extra dry which leads to ingrown hairs, itching, flaky skin and redness. So, the exfoliating effect of waxing can really help you in maintaining a healthy, glowing skin during the harsh winter months.
What Will Happen if You Don’t Wax During Winter?
If you’ve been waxing before winter and stop it during the colder months, you’ll lose all the progress you’ve made with regular waxing during summer. The long-term benefits of waxing are that the more you wax, the more time it will take for the hair to grow again and it will grow finer. However, a regular routine with waxing must be established to achieve these results.
If you ignore waxing during winter months, you won’t be able to reduce hair growth and all the waxing during summer months would go in vain.
Surely you now understand how important it is to wax during winter months to ensure that your skin remains healthy. So, don’t ignore waxing this winter and schedule your waxing appointment at Pure Concept Salon no matter what the season!
