Understanding and Conquering Strawberry Skin with Waxing

'Tis the season for skincare!

If you've ever wondered about those tiny bumps on your arms, thighs, or elsewhere, you're not alone. Today, we unwrap the mystery of what's commonly known as Strawberry Skin or keratosis pilaris. No fuss, no frills—just clear insights on what it is and how waxing can be your go-to solution for achieving smooth, bump-free skin. So, let's jump into the details and discover how to conquer Strawberry Skin through the magic of waxing.

What is Strawberry Skin, Anyway?

Before you dive into a bowl of actual strawberries, let's talk about the skin version. Strawberry skin, officially known as keratosis pilaris, is a common condition where tiny bumps appear on the skin, especially on the arms, thighs, buttocks, and even the face. These bumps can give the skin a bumpy, slightly red appearance, like the surface of a strawberry. Now, who wants to rock strawberry skin at the holiday party? Not us! That's where the magic of smooth skin comes in.

The Solution: Waxing & Skincare

The beauty of waxing goes beyond just the physical. It's an experience, a journey to embrace your skin and feel confident in your own glow. Ask our Esthetician's; they LOVE helping clients feel great in their own skin. Picture yourself in that holiday dress, with skin so smooth it rivals the shimmering Christmas lights. That's the magic of waxing.

  • Mechanical Removal: Waxing involves pulling hair from the follicles, which also removes the top layer of dead skin cells. This mechanical exfoliation can help smooth out the skin's surface, reducing the appearance of bumps caused by KP. Waxing also helps clear any follicles clogged with dead skin cells and keratin, preventing the buildup that contributes to the development of bumps.

  • Improved Blood Flow: The process of waxing stimulates blood circulation in the waxed area. Better blood flow can promote healthier skin and aid in the natural shedding of dead skin cells associated with KP.

  • Preventing Ingrown Hairs: KP-prone skin can be more susceptible to ingrown hairs. Waxing removes hair from the root, reducing the likelihood of hairs getting trapped beneath the skin's surface and causing inflammation.

Here at BARE we offer services that aren't waxing to help with KP. We offer body enzyme treatments that can help exfoliate the skin on your legs and arms. This then leads to better skin hydration at home because your skin is well exfoliated and can better absorb lotions. We also have our Bump Eraiser - Zesty Wash. This product has ingredients that can help reduce KP.

Client Testimonial:

"My daughter has been using the Zesty Wash on her KP on her arms and it has kept it under control and less itchy."

Now that we've unwrapped what strawberry skin is and discovered how waxing can help, it's time for the grand finale – booking your waxing session! Deck the halls with smoothness, embrace the festive glow, and let your skin shine brighter than Rudolph's nose. Book your waxing adventure now, and step into the holiday season with confidence, sass, and skin so smooth, it'll leave Santa jealous!

Remember, this holiday season is all about celebrating you. Treat yourself to the gift of smoothness, and let the festivities begin! 🎄✨
