When the colder months approach, you automatically want to go into hibernation mode and cozy up under a blanket with your peppermint cocoa. Shaving your body might seem like the most unappealing task to complete, and spending hours in the bathroom and dealing with razor cuts that take longer to heal in the cold don’t seem the ideal winter plan.
Flaunting your shaved legs might not be your goal in the winter, but that doesn’t stop you from stressing over getting rid of the hair. You can eliminate all your hair worries by getting laser hair removal in the winter, and here are some reasons why.
1. Avoiding Sunlight is Easier
Experts recommend avoiding direct sunlight on areas where you receive laser hair removal, and when is a better time to do that than winter? Sun exposure can damage laser-treated skin, causing discomfort and burns. You’re already bundled up, and most of your laser hair removal treatment areas remain covered in the cold.
You can allow your skin to heal without missing out on any summer fun. On the plus side, you get to enjoy next summer hair-free, saving you the time of shaving or waxing, giving you more time to get a tan at the beach.
2. Lower Financial Constraints
Summer is the best time to spend your money socializing with friends and family. From BBQs to food festivals and concerts, there’s plenty to look forward to in the summer. A study found that 45% of Americans were spending the most money during the summer in 2020.
Since activities slow down in the winter, you can use your money towards your laser hair removal treatments. When you invest your funds in your hair removal treatment, you save the cost of buying razors, shaving creams, or trips to your wax lady for the next few years.
3. Better Results Due to Fewer Tans
Although laser treatments are suitable for all complexions, it works best when there’s a variation between your skin and hair colour. In the summer, you might be out in the sun, leading to tans and skin damage. When winter arrives, your skin starts to heal and go back into its original colour and texture, making the results more visible.
4. Easier to Hide Pre-Treatment Razor Burns
Laser hair removal treatments require you to shave the treatment areas the night before. Shaving can lead to razor burns that you have to figure out ways to hide in the summer. When you complete your treatment in the winter, no one can see the burns! You can go into the summer with your burn and hair-free legs.
5. You Don’t Miss Out on Summer Fun
After laser hair removal treatment, experts will recommend you avoid any activities that cause excessive perspiration as your skin can be sensitive and appear red. It’s a lot easier to say no to activities causing you to break a sweat in the winter.
It would help if you also avoided areas with chlorine or chemicals after your treatment. What are the odds that you would go swimming very often in the winter? So, winter treatment allows you to enjoy the summer without worrying about post-treatment do’s and don’ts.
You can go on your journey to hair-free, smooth skin any time of the year, but taking that step during winter might help you in many ways.
