As summer makes an official exit, the change in weather usually comes hand in hand with some sadness. Regret that you didn’t spring for the more expensive beach-house share and spend a few extra weekends at the shore. Dread that the polar vortex is going to rear its frosty head again all too soon.
The fact that you don’t have to be so on top of removing all your unwanted body hair is about the only thing to rejoice.
Yet, Melanie Gilliland, European Waxing Center’s education director, says adhering to your waxing schedule is one of the more important summer habits you can stick to when the seasons change. “Getting waxed religiously every three to four weeks — throughout the entire year, not just during the bare-all summer months — is the secret to both less pain and better results,” says Gilliland.
So, while a waxing sesh may not be our favorite of fall activities, the 12 little-known waxing truths ahead promise to not only lessen the pain but also help remove some of the fear and anxiety that come with a stranger ripping off our hair follicles. And, we’ll take any help we can get.
