Hairy times can lead to impulsive at-home hair removal, we get it – these are unprecedented times after all. But before you tackle your fuzzy areas at home, we ask you to put down the razor and those tweezers and consider these at-home tips for hair care.
Consider letting your hair grow out the way it wants to:
Since we’re already socially distancing ourselves and sticking close to home, really no one should be judging you for letting your hair grow out. That being said, we hope that you are not overly judgmental about how your natural hair growth looks on you. Of course, this is difficult to get used to after the smooth, hair-free skin you’ve had after your visits to us, but imagine the satisfaction you’ll get watching all that growth be sugared away once we reopen!
If you really need to tweeze:
The 1980s called – they said their eyebrows are back in. If imagining Cindy Crawford’s glorious brows that doesn’t sway you to leave your eyebrows alone, here are a few pointers:
Pull only the hairs below the brow line or in the middle – nothing else!
Stay away from those horrifying magnifying mirrors: magnifying mirrors cause most of us to micro-analyze all of our imperfections, which leads us to pick at our skin and over-tweeze. And no one wants to see mid-90s brows come back into fashion.
Be careful not to break hairs: if you don’t see a root at the end of the hair follicle, you’ve likely broken the hair, which can lead to ingrown, breakouts and other skin irritations. At this point, it’s best to set down the tweezers.
Staying away from the razor and tweezers is ideal. Why? Part of the benefit to sugaring is that with regular routine it leads to the refinement of hair growth and permanent hair reduction. Going back to shaving will set you back in any progress you’ve made. Think of shaving like mowing a lawn full of weeds: you’re simply cutting everything down to the visible surface – roots still remain and regrowth is inevitable. However, with sugaring you’re pulling out the root from below the surface, meaning it will take time to regrow – if it regrows at all.
Remember to continue exfoliating and moisturizing: these are essential for healthy and happy skin!

There is a lot of information out there regarding the Coronavirus, and some of it is largely inaccurate. We would like to reiterate that COVID-19 is a very serious virus and it can adversely affect even the healthiest of us.
As you already know, the best way to avoid getting sick is to stay at home. Should you have to leave the house, remain at least a distance of 6 feet away from the next person, and wash your hands constantly and for at least 20 seconds. If you are unable to wash your hands, the next best thing is hand sanitizer. Remember not to touch your face, and if you need to, only after you’ve just washed your hands adequately. Be sure to wash your hands as soon as returning home from any outing.
Symptoms vary but the typical symptoms are cough (usually dry but a wet cough has also been a symptom in some), sore throat, difficulty breathing and fever. Other symptoms now being reported by the medical establishment - but not as common - can be loss of smell and/or taste with or without other symptoms, vertigo, nausea and vomiting.
Please remember that social distancing will help prevent the continuing spread of the Coronavirus and help minimize overwhelming the hospitals further. Please also remember that the sooner we comply with social distancing measures, the sooner we can enjoy each other’s company again.
Take care of yourselves, and stay healthy.
