Swimsuit season has arrived, which means it’s time to get rid of unwanted hair and give your legs, underarms and bikini line some much-needed attention. Whether you’re wondering how to shave, wax or prepare for a laser hair removal appointment, here are the Eminence Organics tips for staying silky smooth all summer.
HOW TO PREP FOR SHAVING
1. EXFOLIATE TO PREVENT INGROWN HAIRS
Because cell turnover is much slower on your legs, dead skin cells can build up quickly, hiding stubborn ingrown hairs, clogging your razor and causing uncomfortable razor burn. Exfoliating your skin allows any hair that may be tucked under dead skin to be lifted and more easily removed. Before shaving, use your favorite Eminence Organics body scrub to slough off dead skin cells and reveal razor-ready skin.

2. SHAVE IN THE EVENING
Though convenient, the best time to shave isn’t during your morning shower. As you sleep, legs swell slightly, which can hide a portion of the hairs. For a closer shave, wait until evening to pull out your razor and tackle hairs that would otherwise be hidden. Expert tip: Shave towards the end of your shower when your hair follicles are the softest.
3. SWAP YOUR SHAVING FOAM FOR AN OIL
Opt for a hydrating oil or lotion instead of a shaving foam to act as a barrier between your skin and the blade, allowing for a closer, smoother shave. Using an ultra-hydrating oil like Eminence Organics Apricot Body Oilreplenishes your skin’s moisture and improves your shave, leaving your limbs soft and silky.
HOW TO PREP FOR WAXING
1. SKIP SHAVING BEFOREHAND
The number one rule of waxing is to steer clear of shaving between appointments. Hair should be at least one-quarter of an inch in order for wax to catch the hair, allowing for a more precise wax. To avoid patchiness, it’s best to let hair grow for at least 2-3 weeks before your appointment.
3. BOOK AN EARLY MORNING APPOINTMENT
Ease the pain of waxing by booking an early morning appointment, when your body is under the least amount of stress. Whether you’re a seasoned waxer or first-timer, picking appointments at the time of the day when your skin and muscles are the most relaxed is ideal for minimizing pain and discomfort.
HOW TO PREP FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL
2. DON’T PLUCK OR WAX
For laser hair removal to work, the hair follicle has to be present. Hair removal methods that disturb the hair follicle and interfere with the laser’s target (like plucking and waxing) should be avoided. To maintain smooth skin between appointments, steer clear of tweezers and wax strips and opt for a method that preserves the hair shaft and follicle, like shaving.
3. SHAVE THE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
Unlike waxing, you want the targeted area to be clean-shaven before your appointment. This way the laser can penetrate into the root of the hair - not target or singe any hair on or outside the skin. After shaving, skip your moisturizer: lotions, sunscreen and makeup can react with the laser and cause discolouration, so it’s best to leave your skin bare before your appointment.

WHAT IS DIVERSION?
If you don't know the answer to this question - you're not alone. Nine out of ten consumers do not know what diversion is. But you probably have witnessed it.
Diversion is when products are sold in "unauthorized" places. For example, all genuine Redken products are sold exclusively in salons. But you might come across a few bottles in your local supermarket, drugstore, online or at a discounter. Salon professional products you find outside of a salon are considered to be "diverted."
Move over, ombre! There’s a new hair colour trend in town, and it goes by the name “babylights.”
Babylights are reminiscent of the soft, sunkissed strands that graced your hair as a child. To achieve this look, pair finely woven highlights with handpainted pieces for a dimensional, yet subtle glow around the face and ends.
