It's normal for a couple of strays to be left over when waxing. But if the the majority of yout hair isn't being removed or breaking, it's time for some investigation into why. Most commonly, length is a major factor. Generally, hair needs to be about Вј" for the wax to fully grasp it. If it's any shorter than that, the wax may not be able to take hold, and so it may not be able to be removed.
So here's the thing. In a perfect world, I would traipse around with immaculately hairless legs, underarms, and yes, everything in between, on a consistent, 24-7 basis. To each her own, but it's my personal preference to feelВ baby-bottom smooth from little toe to upper lip, and I find it rather annoying to be anything but.
We consider Amazon to be the best of both worlds when it comes to online beauty shopping. Not only does it provide us with access to our old go-toВ products, but it also introduces us to new beauty products that we never would have knownВ about otherwise. Seriously, it has almost everything we could ever want, need, or ask for, which is why we check it frequently (and thoroughly) for best-selling items.
One of the most glorious aspects of being a beauty editor is the number of products we get to take for a test drive. Sure, we'd be lying if we said we weren't constantly surrounded by a mountain of bottles and tubes both in the office and our apartments, but we approach that mountain eagerly, hiking boots in tow.
Matthew McConaughey may be getting a lot of press for his work on True Detective (oh, and that Oscar), but it's Michelle Monaghan's heavy-hitting performance that's made us die hard fans of the new HBO thriller. Alongside McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, the actress has been delivering can't-look-away scenes every single week.
There are big things that make us happy (such as Instagram-worthy beach vacations and pricey spa treatments), but it's the small things that keep us sane and smiling on a daily basis. We'reВ partnering with Clinique on a new series to help you look and feel your best every day. Check back eachВ week for ways to take your life from good to great, whether that means finding a foundation that boosts your confidence (try Clinique Even Better Glowв„ў Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15) or learning how to eat more mindfully.
