23 – Get a bikini wax

Within the last year I have only just experienced waxing of my eyebrows, legs and underarms (I think because I was too embarrassed and shaving didn’t hurt me) but since my friend has become a beautician I’ve felt comfortable for her to cause me pain. I then thought it would just be easier if someone else took care of ‘down there’ for me too.

As part of helping myself out of my depression I told myself I need to take care of myself more; dentist appointment, cervical screening, haircut – possibly even THE one for charity, my underarm stains and waxing.

You’re now questioning under arm stains. They are brown patches around my underarm hair area that I’ve had since I was a teenager (I think its sweat stains – I’m a sweaty person – sorry not sorry).

I went to the Drs years ago and they gave me some kind of cream, but what teenager has time for some cream to soak into their arm pits every day? I sure didn’t! Anyway I found a lady that does something called Cryopen.

Cryopen is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast effective safe and new solution for the removal of skin imperfections. The Cryopen emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure which allows the therapist to work with precision. As it can take a few treatments and months for this to work, I’m dedicating myself to sorting this out.  This means I’ll feel much more comfortable in any bridesmaid dress my friends may chose. As I need a patch test to make sure I’ve got the all clear to go ahead, I thought I might as well book in for a bikini wax at the same time (no best friend of mine needs to see my down stairs and vice versa). So as before and after pictures of the waxing is NEVER going to happen! I thought I’d also share my ‘journey’ of getting rid of my ‘sweat stains’.

**Disclaimer** I promise you I shower and wear deodorant.
