The weather is warming up and we’ve traded our sweaters in for shorts and tanks. We want to make sure our skin is on point and looking gorgeous. When I think about summer beauty and what that means to me, the first thing that comes to mind is my skin. I always aim for extra moisturizer during the summer to keep my skin hydrated and looking great. Soft and smooth skin will do wonders for making you feel more confident when you want to rock some cute shorts. It’s during these warmer months that I really start to pay more attention to my skin & so to get started, I made a reservation at European Wax Center®. Their main belief is that all of us deserve beautiful, gorgeous skin by not concealing who we are, but by having the courage and confidence to reveal our natural, beautiful skin. I was super excited and a little nervous to go try out these treatments.
For me, my legs and underarm area is what I wanted to focus on in order to boost my confidence. I wanted to feel comfortable rocking a cute pair of shorts and a tank top this summer. I was a little nervous at first as I’ve only ever shaved both of these areas and had never tried any sort of waxing. From the moment I walked into the center, my nervousness was pushed aside because each and every associate I encountered was amazing. They were ready and willing to answer the numerous questions I had from what the treatment would be like to reassuring me that I was not going to be walking out in pain.
After checking myself in with the front desk associate, I was called right back for my treatments. Becky, the associate who would be performing my wax, walked me through everything she was going to do, about how long it would take, and assured me that it was super easy and that I could relax. I loved how friendly she was and that I literally felt completely comfortable. She went into detail about the hair growth process and how long I should wait to make another reservation. Before I knew it she was done with my underarm area and ready to move on to my legs. She walked me through their exclusive 4 Steps to Gorgeous™ process, which preps your skin before and after each treatment, ensuring the most comfortable experience possible.
1) CLEANSE: The pre-wax cleanser removes makeup, oil or lotion from your skin.
2) PROTECT: Next, a pre-wax oil is applied to ensure the wax adheres to pesky hairs and not your skin.
3) GET YOUR WAX ON: Using their exclusive stripless Comfort Wax™, made from natural beeswax, the hair is gently removed for a virtually painless experience.
4) REJUVENATE: Last, your skin is pampered with either our Ingrown Hair Serum (for body) or Calming Cream (for face).
Again, I have no idea what I was so nervous about. I felt wonderful afterwards! My legs have never been smoother and I can say that I have worn a tank top every day since. I have been super confident! I haven’t been fiddling with myself or my top to make sure I didn’t miss a hair when shaving. My legs and underarms are definitely summer ready. Smooth, hair free, moisturized and looking fabulous. Being that it was my first visit to the center, my underarm treatment was complimentary, which I loved. This was amazing and I’ve already made my second reservation. I’m completely addicted. At European Wax Center® they say, “EWC’s impact on our guests doesn’t truly begin until you strut out of our center feeling beautiful, empowered, and ready to take on any adventure that comes your way.” I can honestly say that I definitely felt all of these things walking out of the door. My skin was absolutely ready for summer and I was thrilled.
Another super cool thing about European Wax Center® that I wanted to share, is their Summer Goddess Model Search! You can enter online or in person at one of the open call event locations from 6/1 – 7/20. The voting period will be 7/28-8/1 and POPSUGAR will feature the top 20 of all entries in a hub where users can vote on their favorite entry. The favorite model becomes a finalist who will be invited to attend an event in Miami & the chance to win a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models.
