This one is mainly for the ladies out there. If you’re anything like me, you know the blessing of facial waxing. It is vital for me to get my eyebrows and upper lip waxed every two weeks. It’s annoying but beauty hurts, right? When I get waxed I feel like a brand new person. Like a baby fresh out of the womb. Waxing. Saves. Lives.
Now, I’m not talking the normal wax your salon probably uses. The salon I went to for my waxing used to use normal wax. However, in the past two years, she has switched over to a different type of wax. In fact, it isn’t wax at all. It is called Nufree. Nufree is a substitute for wax and has been scientifically proven to be safer for your skin. This is due to the fact that Nufree only sticks to the hair. So when your salon rips that sucker off your brow, the only thing coming off is the hair. With normal wax, you are having not only your unwanted hair removed but your first layer of skin as well. Ouch. If you get waxed often, this is not the best thing for your skin. Your skin becomes sensitive and thin. Luckily Nufree is gentle and reduces redness after waxing. The composition of this substitute wax is all natural. No chemicals, no added preservatives.
But wait, there’s more! after you’re finished with the waxing, there is a soothing, antiseptic lotion that is put on the area affected. This lotion is called finipil. It is a protective agent for the hair follicle that cools the skin after being waxed. The reduction of swelling and redness of the skin is thanks to finipil lotion.
This new form of waxing is something you all need to try. If you’re a loyal wax customer and looking for a place, I recommend Looks Hair Design right here in downtown State College. They know what’s up because they’re one of the few who use Nufree and finipil. Now there is also thredding, but that’s a topic for another time. Until then, waxing saves lives, and Nufree is the game changer.
