Because no one likes to have an intimate moment interrupted by embarrassing stubble or irritable razor burn, avoid getting caught in a hairy situation with these fuss-free (and fuzz-free) finds.
YT sat down for some smooth talk with Normajean Fusco, hair removal expert and founder of Nufree, a self-preserving, antibacterial, antimicrobial alternative to waxing that will leave you smooth and hairless with less mess and virtually no pain. Read on for her answers to your questions about how to be smooth and sexy just in time for bathing suit and summer fling season.
It's finally here: bathing suit season! Trips to the beach and a whole lot of sun are in store for your summer. But what about waxing? The bumps, the pain, the redness — none of it is exactly conducive to a sexy day at the beach. This season, try a hair removal method that not only does its job, it also leaves little-to-no indication behind that it was ever there!
About two months into my relationship with B, he started sharing his desire to see me get a Brazilian wax. Of course, this was never going to happen. Not only are guests not welcome in the waxing room, but I wasn't about to have anyone outside of my beloved waxer see me writhe in such pain as I did everything within my power not to scream out something bizarre or obscene.
Recently, I've been thinking about how the changing seasons affect my beauty habits. A few examples: I wax my bikini line during bathing suit season, I don't exfoliate as much in the winter and I wear a gel moisturizer instead of a cream one in the summer to avoid oiliness. But one that I've noticed myself and many others tend to do is shaving less during the colder seasons, when we can cover up our stubble (or forest) with long pants or tights.
Whether you're single or with your partner, when you're on the way to a much-deserved vacation from work, the last thing you want to think is stuff like, "Dammit, I wish I'd remembered to wax my bikini zone." Luckily for you, we've compiled a handy list of beauty rituals to take out the stress and pressure out of your precious sun-soaking days.
The reality of getting your body fuzz-free and beach-ready is this: It's an ongoing process and there can be an ouch factor. As a Cuban-born Jew with hair to spare, I should know. But after more than two decades of reporting on (and trying) the latest beauty products, here are my tried and true hair-removing favorites.
As far as the attractiveness of the Foxy Bikini and The Carnivale (the fox fur and the feather treatments, respectively) go, this writer has not enjoyed the opportunity to check them out close-up. However, one can imagine that it would be pretty funny to go through the awkward process of pulling someone's clothes off for the first time to be confronted with what looks like an animal either trying to enter or escape from a woman's babymaker.
According to experts in the field, men are going in for more and more hair removal treatments at spas. At the center of this trade is a male version of the Brazilian wax, a wax that removes all pubic hair from a person's groin. The so-called "Boyzilian" (or as we call it, "Brozilian") may be inspired by porn, or just weird evolutionary shame.
We've come a long way from the days of Burt Reynolds' hairy chest to what's considered sexy now. "No Shave November," this month's prostate cancer awareness campaign, which is encouraging men not to shave for the entire month, is certainly an exception to the trend!
Ten percent of Brits have had sex on an airplane. When is the right time to sleep with someone? If you're starting over in dating, you may need a waxing. What does "cougar" really mean? It turns out that a handful of young sperm donors are fathering ALL the babies in California. Science can't come up with an explanation for the female orgasm.
Recently I've been coping with the aftermath of a breakup—not a separation from my significant other, mind you, but from my waxist. Our split was not for lack of compatibility. She works at an athletic club where my husband and I discontinued our membership for budgetary concerns. I knew I would miss my go-to gal, but I frankly I didn't realize quite how much. And I suspect my husband, ahem, misses her too.
When it comes to wooing the opposite sex, men have it easy. As far as I know, they approach you and whip out the pick-up line. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Women on the other hand, play a whole different game. Sometimes it seems as if our entire existence is based on impressing a guy. And it's exhausting. We don't think about it often (or we argue that we're doing these things for ourselves as much as for the men), but when you stop and take notice of all the things we do to woo the gentlemen, well, it's absurd.
