WAXING FOR WRINKLES

Left and right, we see, hear and know of women and even men who are engrossed with being flawless. The quest of being flawless will not be complete without the removal of unwanted hair in the body. One of the most popular means of hair removal is waxing. But, what risks are there with this procedure? Does waxing cause wrinkles?

Waxing as mentioned earlier, is a procedure that removes unwanted hair from any part of the body- like, the eyebrows, face, bikini, area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet, temporarily.

LET ME KNOW THE WAYS

I celebrated my 30th birthday just a week ago. Everything was perfect. But this week, the truth suddenly struck me; I realized that I am not getting any younger and very soon I will be facing the bitter truth of wrinkle formation. I have seen and heard women my age facing the same nightmare. On my part though, the signs aren’t visible yet- my forehead is as smooth as it can be and my skin hasn’t thinned out. I trust this is due to me making sure that my skin was given extra care, way back when I was younger and even up to now, like applying sun block whenever I had to go out and be exposed to the sun; I used moisturizers making sure my skin did not dry out; I did not get myself engaged to any form of vices like smoking and alcohol drinking.  I guess I am on the right track, but are there other preventive measures on how to prevent wrinkles?
