Hijabtrendz Q&A: Smooth skin routine step 2

Last week we started our smooth skin care routine with prepping the skin, and this week we’ll delve into the issue of hair removal and how it can help.

Step 2: Hair Removal

There are a few different ways to remove body hair” waxing, tweezing, shaving, or threading.

Our preferred method is waxing because it really gets down to the root of the hair and keeps it from coming back for at least 3 weeks.

Shaving is a great option for those who are in a rush, but the stubble comes back so quick that it’s a lot more work in the long run. However, a great tip is to use conditioner when you shave and your skin will stay soft and you wont have as many nicks or cuts.

Tweezing and threading is more for small patches like the face/eyebrows so we don’t recommend it for all over the body.

In any case, once you’ve selected your method of choice the key to keeping your skin smooth afterward is very simple…

Moisturize!

We came to this realization a few years ago and what we learned is that lotions are often heavy and greasy and only temporarily make your skin feel smooth.

Johnson's Baby Oil

The best thing to use is baby oil.

After you remove your hair apply a nice layer of baby oil on your skin and let it dry before putting your clothes on. You’ll notice that immediately you have silky skin and it helps cut back on the stubble and make it less noticeable (especially if you used a razor).

Do any of you have special hair removal techniques/tips you’d like to share?
