No Waxing after 40!


Facial waxing has been around for ages. In fact, early Egyptians were the forerunners in hair removal and used beeswax and sugar based waxes to remove every hair on their body, even on their head! Although removing every hair is the goal of many modern women today, there are several methods to remove unwanted body hair. Also, when reaching a certain age, waxing is something you probably should not do anymore.

Once you reach a mature age, you will need to trade the wax in for other methods. The reason being is that if you are introducing any anti-aging ingredients such as Retin-A, glycolic, salicylic, or any chemical peel treatments, waxing can remove (tear) the skin and create pigmentation.

We all want defined brows, because with defined brows it brings youthfulness. But as you age, you need to make a choice whether you want wrinkles or to have defined brows by using wax. Waxing is a quick, easy and takes little to no time, but in the end it could scar the skin.

There are other methods like threading, tweezing, microplaning or laser hair removal. However, if you do still decide on waxing, then one thing that you want to be cautious of is to only remove minimal amounts of hair at a time. Waxing can kill the root of the hair, just like laser hair removal. Therefore the hair will not come back.

    Wow, that’s really interesting….I had no idea and have only had my eyebrows done maybe twice when I got a pedicure but now I know to stay away from that, do it myself (plucking) and not get lazy about that, I think most of us would have to come up with the alternative ways, not get lazy and will stay away from waxing…thanks for letting us know! This is great info that I don’t think most people would have ever even thought of…I know I didn’t even know!
