No matter what time zone you’re in, New Year’s Eve is seen as a time for celebration all over the world. The New Year heralds a time for new beginnings, for setting the tone for a better you. So whether you’ve been lolling about by the fire all Christmas, or hopping from one party to the next, it’s worth putting in the time to look and feel your best from head to toe for the big countdown. This includes showing off that glowing skin that you may have been covering up during the winter months! Here are a couple of handy hair removal tips, so you can dazzle your loved ones in that new dress, and set the beauty bar for the year ahead.
Look your best
You might have the perfect dress picked out, but if you’ve been hiding under a sea of blankets all winter, it might be some time since you’ve given your legs a good waxing. So that dress might not be such a good idea if your legs and arms are hairy! In this case, you might find that a little extra prep will go a long way. Start by setting aside some time for your hair removal routine a couple of days before the big night. This will minimize any possible redness afterwards and you will be in the right frame of mind to show off your gorgeous skin.
The first step is to give your legs a hot wash and a good scrub with a gentle exfoliator – this will wash away any dead skin, dirt and dried sweat and oil. Exfoliated skin gives the wax an extra firm grip on the hair. It might be wise to opt for a sensitive hair removal formula too, to ease skin back into the waxing habit. Veet Wax Strips for Sensitive Skin have an easy grip tab to get you waxing like a pro again, and the strips also contain soothing ingredients such as Almond Oil which can calm down any possible irritation.
After your wax, be sure to moisturise thoroughly too. Over the next couple of days, keep up your moisturising regime morning and night, to ensure glowing results on the big night!
…and feel your Best
They say that real beauty comes from within, and when it comes to the big day, a.k.a New Year’s Eve, taking the time to treat yourself can help you get the most out of the celebration. Why not start the day by treating yourself to a couple of extra hours’ beauty sleep? If you’ve been meaning to figure out those New Year’s resolutions, why not schedule in some alone time to reflect on the new year; just you, your thoughts, and a cosy mug of hot chocolate while you mull things over? After a few hours of me time, you’ll be in great form to start getting ready for the night ahead.
With all those compliments you’ll receive for looking so gorgeous, you might consider including this hair removal routine in your New Year’s Beauty Resolutions. Here are a couple of tips you might want to take with you as you enter into the New Year:
- If it’s a big night out, waxing a few days before can eliminate redness and soreness.
- Introduce exfoliation to your shower routine to improve waxing results and minimize ingrown hairs.
- Little extras, such as good quality tweezers or a bottle of talc, can make all the difference when it comes to getting great results from your wax. Take stock of your hair removal arsenal – is there anything you’re missing?
- Moisturising keeps your skin hydrated, showing off your efforts for the world to see. Why not keep up the morning and night moisture routine and see what a difference it makes to your skin’s glow?
Above all, the New Year’s Eve is about setting the tone for the year ahead. We hope those glowing legs will have you dancing into the new year with a smile on your face as you receive compliments galore.
