Makeup Monday: My Hair Removal Routine

We are coming off a very, very busy time for our family.  The boys were in our church Christmas play yesterday and let's just say ... the practice was a little intense.  Our pastor's wife is amazing at directing the Christmas play every year, and all of the hard work shows.  We've had many a late night while the boys were practicing.

I don't know about you, but even when we're super busy I like to keep myself looking good.  I really don't like to skimp on my beauty routine, because it makes me feel good.  I wanted to share a new-to-me product that has made my hair removal routine incredibly easy.  Hair removal has never been easy for me.  I have super pale skin and very dark hair.  Even when my legs are shaved and very smooth, you can still see the hair follicle under my skin.  It's been very frustrating to me. Additionally, my hair grows very fast.  By the next day, I'm stubbly again.  It's an endless cycle...

I've done every type of hair removal you can think of ... hard wax, soft wax, shaving wet, shaving dry, sugaring, and I've tried a ton of shaving creams and oils.  Oh, and did you know that you can burn your skin with depilatory (like Nair)? Yeah, that's a story for another day...

I've wanted to try laser hair removal, because it sounds like a quick fix to all this time and money that I've spent on hair removal.  I was super excited to start using the Silk'n Flash&Go, because I can use it in the privacy of my own home.  This is not laser hair removal, as it uses a patented light technology.  This leads to permanent hair removal, so eventually I will spend less time and money on shaving.  The only downside is that it works on lighter skin.  The laser needs to detect the dark pigment in order to differentiate the dark hair from the skin.

I've been using the Flash&Go biweekly during my Sunday night pampering session.  Every Sunday night, I take a little time to get myself ready for the week.  The Flash&Go fits into my routine very easily.

Before using a device like this, you should read all of the instructions.  When I'm ready to use the Flash&Go, I shave the treatment area.  For now, I am doing my lower legs.  The hair is coarser, and it's winter so my legs are not exposed right now.  Working row by row, I complete one treatment area in a small amount of time.

I've been doing my treatments in two week intervals, as Silk'n suggests.  I am starting to see results.  After the fourth treatment, you can use it once a month for maintenance.  I am already saving time compared to the time I spent shaving every day.

I have been so pleased with the results, this would be a great gift for someone on your list.  We're pretty deep into the gift buying season.  You definitely want to head into Kohl's, Bed Bath & Beyond, or online (Kohl's and Bed Bath & Beyond) to get it for someone on your list who also struggles with hair removal.
