What do you get done?(4 Posts)
Just wondering what treatments S&B posters get done...out of curiosity really and to see if there's anything out there I'm missing out on . Maintenance, 'medical' and just pampery type things, anything really that you pay someone else to do to you (without sounding dodgy!).
I get my bikini line Brazilian waxed with lycon hot wax every 4-6 weeks, although sometimes go through phases of letting it go wild or shaving it all off myself. DP doesn't mind whatever I do it so it's just how I fancy doing it.
Shellac pedicure monthly or so through the summer - always visit the chiropodist earlier in the year to sort out winter callusy feet first.
I used to get a Shellac manicure as well- not doing that at the moment but might go back to it, just wanted to find a better nail technician first which I have now. I can only get natural/French done for work but even then I just feel much more polished, and can still whack a colour on the top for a night out or weekend.
I used to get my eyebrows threaded but the last few months I've been a bit more dedicated with the maintenance tweezing strays almost daily in between and haven't needed to get them re-shaped recently.
I get a relaxing aromatherapy massage semi regularly - maybe 4-5 times a year. I see it as an investment in my mental health and general wellbeing . I also love the Elemis lime & ginger salt glow treatment I discovered last year, did it twice and think will do it again soon. Very indulgent but also feel like it was a fab deep all-over exfoliation, especially for my back that I neglect I think.
I don't get my hair done-cut it myself, it's long and it's not difficult. Also don't colour it at all. Am lucky it's a deep brown with very few greys (easily pickable out still) so staving off colouring for the time being.
I'm thinking of trying a lash lift, so if anyone gets that done I'd be very interested to hear.
Also starting to think about a big-girl facial.... with extractions and hi tech stuff.... I do a pretty thorough skincare routine myself but thinking that a professional job might help some specific areas I'm not happy with.
Soooo...... what about anyone else?
I think of myself as fairly low maintenance, though now that I tot it up...
- Eyebrow threading every six weeks or so
- Professional hair cut and colour every two months or so
- Leg and bikini line (just regular bikini) waxed in Summer (in the winter months I go full Sasquatch unless I have some kind of dressy occasion)
- Shellac pedicures in Summer
Just a pedicure. Every two months, six weeks if its summer.
I also slap on some fake tan as soon as it's above 15 degrees.
Hair cut maybe every 2 years (no particular style really, and the colour is natural)
Eyebrows threaded and upper lip waxed (urgh) every 4-6 weeks.
Manicure every 10-14 days
Pedicure every 2 weeks in summer, every 6 weeks in winter
Colour my on hair at home every 4 weeks, cut at a salon 2-3 times a year (my hair really doesn't need all this 'trim every 6 weeks' malarkey).
I do my own body hair removal at home and fake tan all year round at home, too - spray tan for special occasions or holidays.
Rarely bother with facials. Maybe once a year? Have tried loads over the years nd they never have any real effect.
BUT...I have a smidgen of botox every 3-4 months and a smidgen of filler once a year-ish
Massage about 4 times a year (would love it more often, but can't afford it )
