International Day of Waxing

Free the Bush - It's Okay Not to Care About Hair!

Be Confident, Be You

A huge part of International Day of Waxing is body acceptance. You don’t need to go hair-free, and it is important for everyont to know there’s nothing wrong with body hair! When it comes to embracing your body hair or removing it, there is no right or wrong answer. This is a choice that you should make for yourself and for not for anyone else.

Don’t Wait, Exfoliate

Whether you prefer the natural look or wish to remove body hair, exfoliation is your new best friend! Buff away the layer of dead skin cells that naturally occur to reveal beautiful and healthy new skin.

Exfoliation will also unclog pores, improve blood circulation, and reduce ingrown hairs while keeping your skin clear. Make sure to have a skincare routine after you wax. The most effective way to treat your skin is with a 3-step solution to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. Taking care of your skin will maintain the results of your waxing session.

Your Body, Your Choice

When the pandemic caused salons to close around the world, we all lost the ability to maintain our usual hair-removal routines. For this reason, many of us had to face our body hair, all the internalized feelings,  and social stigmas. As a result, we had to face the belief that in order to be considered “beautiful,” we needed to groom ourselves in a particular way.

Once the routine of hair removal was interrupted, we all had to wonder “why am I doing all of this?” If you discover you’ve been removing body hair for the wrong reasons and no longer want to, go for it! International Day of Waxing celebrates taking a moment to pause and decide what makes you happy.

Go Hair-Free if it Makes You Happy

On one hand, if you feel more confident and prefer body hair removal, there’s nothing wrong with that either. The only thing that matters here is how you feel in your own skin.

If you do decide that removing your body hair is the path for you, there are many at-home hair removal options for you to explore. Choosing the right one will present the best results and the happiest you! Look for at-home waxing kits that will make the entire process simple from start to finish. Wax strips are a fabulous at-home option for beginners, seasoned professionals, and anyone who falls somewhere in between on the spectrum of experience levels.

Shaving, threading, and lasering are all options available to you as well, and knowing which option is best for you is important. If you want to know more about our feelings on this, check out our other posts on the benefits of waxing.

So, whether you are embracing new hair growth or trying your hand at at-home hair removal, do it for yourself, and be confident. Know that you are beautiful, just the way you are!
