Just as you're feeling yourself…you actually feel yourself – a.k.a. the fuzz all over your body. Wonderful. He asked you to go to the beach tomorrow, and you are not prepared. Sure, there's nothing wrong with body hair, but for now, removing it will put you at ease. Unfortunately, laser hair removal takes too long, and your usual waxer is booked. Luckily, there are at-home remedies that can produce the same results as a professional and Agatha at the spa. See which removal remedy below fits your lifestyle the best.RazorsShaving is basically everyone's go-to when it comes to removing every hair follicle on your body. It's quick, affordable, and gets the job done. It's so common in fact, that you're probably thinking: "Well, duh." However, explore some of these razors that might change the game for you a bit. Billie Razors manufacture razors that are made specifically for women. This company understands that women shave 10x more area than the typical man. So you need a razor that can hold up to that kind of work. The razor itself is encased in 360° of charcoal shave soap and has 5 premium stainless steel blades to help you get the smoothest shave.
billieBillie RazorForget the pink tax and try the Dollar Shave Club. It might be targeted towards men, but obviously, women can still use the razors. The reason the Dollar Shave Club is on this list is that they send the razors to your home quarterly throughout the year. So for those last-minute shaving sessions, you don't have to worry about dull blades and razor bumps.
DOLLAR SHAVE CLUBBLADES THE EXECUTIVEFlamingo is a great company to support because they understand that shaving should receive some real attention. They believe that when you show up for yourselves in private, you can show up for yourself in public wearing a bikini on the beach with Jimmy. The Flamingo razor is similar to basically any razor. Though what stands out are the 5 Gothic cut Swedish steel blades that help remove any unwanted hair you might have.

Regardless of your attitude surrounding waxing, you have to admit the results speak for themselves. Waxing is a solid way to get a quick result that lasts longer than shaving, though the sacrifice is suffering a bit of discomfort. But you know what they say, 'beauty is pain.' Cherie.com has some interesting beauty articles you should check out if you'd like to learn more about societal beauty. There are various types of at-home waxing kits that you can try; it all depends on your experience level, pain tolerance, and patience. Nair Wax Ready Strips are a safe way to remove hair, there's no need to heat the wax and put yourself at risk of a burn. If the price is a concern, you can't go wrong with Veet's Ready-To-Use Wax Kit. It's similar to Nair's ready wax strips but cheaper.Depilatory Creams Speaking of Nair and Veet, depilatory creams are also a quick solution to unwanted fuzz. Depilatory creams are great for those for a low threshold for pain and need something in a pinch. They can be a bit messy though. Depilatory creams work by dissolving the hair follicle just below the surface of the skin. You basically put the cream on, wait a bit, then wash it away to reveal baby smooth skin. Bada-bing-bada-boom. Because you're basically melting your hair away, you should do a patch test before you go all out for your Brazilian style. That goes for waxing as well. Another thing to note when it comes to using depilatory creams is that the results may vary based on the size of the area the cream is used on, the amount of hair, and the thickness of the follicle. While Nair and Veet are household names when it comes to these kinds of creams, there are other brands to try as well.Gigi Hair Removal Lotion contains cocoa butter, Vitamins C and E, and natural oils to help soothe the skin as it dissolves your hair. If you'd like to err on the side of caution, try Nad's Sensitive Skin Hair Removal Cream. Nad's loads their product with natural extracts of melon, aloe vera, avocado oil, and honey to protect the skin as well.Dermaplaning Dermaplaning razors exfoliate the skin to create a smooth canvas. While they can technically be used for different parts of the body, a popular use is for removing peach fuzz on your face. Sephora has these awesome, affordable razors made specifically for peach fuzz.
SEPHORA COLLECTIONLevel Setter RazorsAt-Home Laser Removal Okay, so this isn't a quick fix, but you can't talk about hair removal without lasers. If you have time and patience, at-home laser hair removal has advanced immensely. With the right tools, you can prevent another last-minute hairy situation. A great place to start when it comes to at-home laser hair removal is at the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X. This at-home laser is the first, and only FDA-cleared laser people can use in the privacy of their own home at a fraction of the cost of a professional. The company recommends using the laser in the same area every two weeks for long term results.With these tools, whether you're in a turtleneck, bikini, or in your birthday suit, you can feel your most confident.

Dermatologist opinion: caffeine eye cream
THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream Why I like the Inkeylist caffeine eye cream: ✔️ Lightweight texture blends very easily ✔️ Hydrating ✔️ Can help reduce puffiness ✔️ Antioxidant ingredients help fight off free radicals from the sun and pollution ✔️ Can help improve the appearance of dark circles ✔️ Fragrance free- no smell to it! ✔️ Affordable ✨ It is one of my favorite go-to eye creams because of the caffeine which really helps with my puffy eyes in the morning and has helped with my dark circles. I also really like that it blends in easily, is fragrance free, and affordable. I like using this once a day in the morning but this can be used twice a day. I like using it in the mornings because it really helps with my puffy eyes (which is worse in the morning for me!). I notice an immediate effect on the puffiness around my eyes. It took a few weeks to notice the improvement on my dark circles. What do you think about this eye cream? Comment below!

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a humectant that famously holds 1000 times its weight in water. It pulls in water from the environment and from the deeper layers of your skin.

3 Easy Ways to Volumize Your Hair
Hair concerns: Flat, Thin These are my 3 quick, go-to hair tips for volumizing my hair! This is great for when you’re on the go and don’t have too much time on your hands. 1. Use a Root Volumizer Hot Tool (Bed Head Little Tease Hair Crimper for Outrageous Texture and Volume) - Using this root volumizer hot tool will give you the volume of teased hair without the tangled knots and hairspray. It works by making small crimps or waves in your hair and gives your roots volume from the texture it creates. Just make sure to cover your roots with a layer of hair to conceal the textured areas. - Directions: Clamp the hot tool at your roots, brush it out with your fingers, and cover it with a layer of hair. Spray a moderate amount of hair spray to keep it in place. 2. Dry Shampoo - Thin, flat hair usually looks lifeless because of the lack of texture and thinness of the hair shaft. This means that having freshly washed hair can actually be your worst enemy if you’re going for a volumized look. Adding in a hair product can help at the roots by allowing for your hair to be styled into place. You can use any texturizing spray to do so, but I like to use dry shampoo especially for second-hair days! It helps soak up the oils in my hair as well as volumizing my roots. - Directions: Use any dry shampoo your own and spray onto your roots and brush it out. 3. Hair Extensions - Adding hair extensions onto your head will effortlessly give the illusion that your hair is much thicker than it actually is. The added layers will make the roots of your hair appear uplifted. You can choose from lengthening hair extensions (like mine) or extensions that match your hair length. Either way, it’ll make your hair on your head look much fuller. - Directions: Use clip-in hair extensions and clip it onto your roots. Cover the clip-ins with a layer of hair and spray hairspray it to keep it in place. #cheriepartner #sponsored
