Styles of Bikini Waxing made Easy

Brazilian bikinis
The Hollywood, The Sphinx, The French, The Playboy. There are so many different names for the various styles of bikini waxing, it makes life confusing. I've been waxing people for more than 30 years and even I'm confused! 

Let's make it simple shall we? 

There are three basic types of bikini waxing. The Bikini Line Waxing, The Full Bikini Waxing and The Brazilian Waxing. All can vary a bit according to how much hair you want removed. Hair can be removed from the front section (the pubic bone area), the middle section (the labia area) and the back section (between the butt cheeks).

The Bikini Line Wax
Hair is removed from outside of the panty line and just inside the panty line, top and sides. You get a cleaned up triangle shape,

Full Bikini Wax

Hair is removed from the front and the middle far inside the panty line. It's high on the sides. You can have a landing strip. This can be a French bikini wax which means most of the hair is removed from the front leaving a landing strip and most of the hair is removed from the middle, but not from the back.

The Brazilian Wax

The hair is removed from the front and back and everything in between for a bare look. "Make me bald!" as one of my clients says. You can leave a small triangle or small thin landing strip in front which is quite popular right now. The Brazilian wax is also called The Hollywood or The Sphinx. The Playboy wax is a Brazilian with a skinny landing strip.

If you have never had a bikini wax, I recommend to start with a bikini line wax or a conservative full bikini wax to get you used to the bikini waxing process. You can always take more off at your next waxing appointment.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w
