How Much Hair “Downtown” is Trendy Now?
Can a Clean Bikini Line Bag You a Boyfriend?
Patti Stanger of the Millionaire Matchmaker has Tips for You!
Always outspoken and not afraid to tell it like it is, Patti sat down with editors to talk about a topic women deal with all the time, but don’t generally discuss: hair removal. What would the owner of the Millionaire’s Club advise about removing hair down there? How far a woman should a woman want to go when she’s cleaning up “downtown?” Would a great bikini line make a man want to date you?
I expected Patti to talk about hygiene, but I was surprised that her #1 tip was that if you want to get someone to be attracted to you, first you need to feel sexy in your own skin. A clean bikini line is a good way to start. Well, it sort of makes sense!
But how far should a girl really go when removing hair down there? Is the Brazilian still a must-do? We know that porn stars have made the Brazilian something a lot of men expect all women to want, but The Advice Sisters thinks this is a highly personal decision. The Brazilian is certainly not dead and we’re not going “back to the bush” any time soon. However, if you want to be trendy, we’ve been told that today’s look is to keep a bit more body hair (as long as it’s under control).
Completely Bare has two new products that will keep you hair-free where and when you want, this Summer and beyond. Check out the Wax On The Go Go Travel Wax Kit By Completely Bare ($9.99) It has everything you need to remove hair where you don’t want it. For example, If you’re “in the moment” or find yourself at the beach or pool and you haven’t had time to shave or wax, you can take one of these strips and quickly clean up. It’s great for travel too, because this kit won’t take up all the room in your suitcase. “Men love a clean fuzz free bikini line ( aka a smooth slip ‘n’ slide) or a fabulous landing strip,” says Patti. “And did you know a clean bikini line will give you a better orgasm? I’m not joking!!”
Ah Patti,we know you’re not joking….and thanks for the tips!
The Completely Bare Wax on the Go Go Travel Kit has both face and bikini waxing essentials:
18 strips (6 bikini, 12 face);
2 completely off towelettes;
1.7oz Don’t Grow There Moisturizer & Hair Inhibitor.
Now that the weather is warm, you’re not wearing tights and boots. It’s bare legs and sandals and that means more skin to show off. Completely Bare’s new Completely Bare’s new Moisturizing No-Bump Shave Gel 6.0 oz ($9.99) helps keep your legs smooth without developing nasty, ingrown bumps. The Hypo-allergenic formula is good for all skin types, and you can use it on legs, bikini and underarms. It also has a fresh scent that both you and that special someone will like and the flip top tube has cute graphics that make it a bit more fun to use in bath or shower. Show off smooth legs with a mini skirt and pointy heels suggests Patti, but frankly, The Advice Sisters think that while heels will elongate your legs, wear whatever makes you feel good, even if it’s rhinestone encrusted ballerina flats (because you are going to be walking all day).
Want to Remove Hair by Waxing at Home? Salon visits can get pricey, and sometimes there just isn’t enough time to schedule them. Here are some quick tips from The Advice Sisters to help you remove hair from that all-important bikini area effectively and safely:
BIKINI AREA: We’re not going to lie: waxing is for the confident and brave because it’s uncomfortable to painful, depending upon your sensitivity. But it’s also the best way to remove hair and keep it from growing back too quickly. If you are not pain-tolerant, take some ibuprofen an hour beforehand. It may be counter-intuitive, but the hair has to be at least a quarter of an inch long (fine hair) or half an inch long (coarse hair) so there is something for the wax strip to grab. You need to see what you are doing, so prop a mirror up in front of you. Bend one leg so your foot rests on the opposite knee (or as close as you can get to that pose). Start at the edge and spread the wax in the direction your hair grows, in SMALL sections. Smooth the muslin
strip over the area, Pull the skin taut, and yank the strip back in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Don’t hesitate or you’ll cause more pain and stress than doing it fast, like ripping off a band-aid. Then smooth on some soothing aloe or a cream specifically made for after-waxing.
Completely Bare products can be found in retailers like Ulta, Kohls, drugstore.com and Amazon.com
