The Importance & Benefits of Winter Waxing

01. 15. 2022

You may think you’ve got free reign to stop your waxing routine for the winter. Let’s face it, we’re just wearing mostly leggings, jeans, and tights with cute boots, right? Although your legs aren’t on show, winter is actually the best time to keep up with your waxing routine regularly.

So, although you may have the urge to hunker down in front of the fire, hibernate for the winter, and binge watch your favorite show, there are several benefits to coming into Suede Salon & Spa and keeping up with your hair removal year-round.

Keeping in sync with your hair growth cycle. One of the main reasons we choose waxing as our top choice in hair removal is to reduce future hair growth. With consistent waxing, hair growth slows or even stops. There are three main phases in hair growth – growing, dormant, and falling out. These stages affect how close the hair follicles are to the surface of the skin. If you interrupt these stages by stopping your waxing routine during the winter months, it can cause your hair to grow back thicker and darker.

Reduced hair growth. Waxing removes hair at the root, which not only damages the hair follicle’s ability to grow new shafts of hair but also hinders future hair growth. What does that mean to you? Every time you come into Suede Salon & Spa for a wax treatment, your hair will grow back lighter and finer – and could result in permanent hair loss with a consistent regimen. However, if you give your follicles a chance to recover in the winter, you won’t have the same level of decrease in growth.

Stop dry winter skin in its tracks. Waxing not only removes the hair from the root but also exfoliates the skin. The wax removes not only the hair but also the dead skin cells – leaving a fresh layer of skin. When your skin has a build-up of dead skin cells, your skin cannot absorb the nutrients found in body creams and lotions, leaving it even flakier, dry, and tight during the winter. When you exfoliate your skin, it also boosts circulation resulting in cell growth and collagen production so that your skin will look and feel healthier, nourished, and radiant.

Cold winds and dry air make your skin extra dry. That dryness can contribute to ingrown hairs, redness, and flaky, itchy skin. Adding a regular waxing routine to your winter skincare regimen will allow your skin to be deeply exfoliated, allowing in that much-needed moisture for healthy, smooth, hydrated skin.

Feel sexy year-round. If you’re a regular waxer, you know how amazing it feels to have smooth, bare skin no matter the season. Let’s face it, those millimeters of overgrown hair aren’t going to keep you warm in the winter, they’ll just make you feel a little hairy and itchy. When you feel good, you’re in a more positive space and your mood will show it! There’s no need to feel self-conscious – feel good about yourself both inside and outside.
