So summer is comming and eventhough you should stay healthy and do exercises all year, when summer is aproaching everyone wants to look skinny and fit.

removing unwanted hair #getreadyforsummer

There’s many ways to remove body hair, and you just have to find the one that best works for you. I’ll present you five different ways to get rid of unwanted leg hair.

Shaving

It6ea1202ceb818633aba2667671332358‘s the fastest way to remove your hair, but it only gives short-term benefits as the hair is only cut off from the surface and  it takes about two days to grow back. And the new hair is usually darker and harder than natural hair. Oh, and it’s also a cheap way to remove hair.

Depilatory cream:d56cd4a6ddb85a8c2c47206d90383b48

This method has also short-term benefits because the hair takes around 4-5 days to grow back. The main “problem” is that it may be messy so make sure you have enough time. An advantage is that it’s not painful and the hair becomes thinner.

Warm wax (at home):61a13e6d58869dcac406ccfde299d519

To be able to do it at home you may need to practice a few times and it might be painful. But on the other hand it softens the hair and lets you have hairless legs for a month. It’s also inexpensive. But be carefull with ingrown hair.

Hot wax (at a beauty salon):42fff84c6b2d9a6fe5b9f8a5eb002a77

More or less the same as warm wax, the main difference is that the estheticienne rips it off without strips. For me only groins were painful, but some people find it really sore. You get a soft skin for a month, and after a few times this period of times gets longer but it’s more expensive than doing it at home.

Laser:

This it’s the most expensive method to remove ipl2your hair but after a few sessions (between 5 and 10) you’ll never have to worry about your hair ever again. Before going to your appointment make sure to apply an anesthetic cream (the one recommended by you estheticienne), it may be expensive but it’s worth it. Withe the cream it didn’t hurt at all, and a friend who didn’t use it said that the laser was really painful.

This is my sum up of all the methods to make your decision even easier:

Travel post: Vienna

viena

Vienna is the city of music ♪ and it’es the capital of Austria, wich is situed in the center of Europe in the South of Germany.

  • Attractions

Vienna State Opera: probably the most famous opera house in the world. It’s located in the center of Vienna. The building was destroyed by a bomb during world war II, that’s why decorations don’t look very luxury as other european opera houses. You can take a guided tour on the morning, or watch an Opera in the evening from 4€ to 265€.

St. Stephan’s Cathedral: catholic church situated in Stephansplatz (In the heart of the city). It’s easly recongnizible from anywhere within the city, thanks to the colorful roof. It was also severly damaged during WWII.

Schonbrunn palace: there are many palaces in Vienna, but my favourite is Schonbrunn, it’s quite similar to Hofburg palace. This barroque style palace used to be the summer residence of the Imperial family. Mozart played for the first time to the Hofburg family in the Hall of mirrors at the age of 6. Franz Joseph, the last emperor, died here. Many famous people has walk through the french gardens, as Napoleon. The Vienna Zoo (wich is the world’s oldest zoo) is part of the gardens, and there are also a few labyrinths you shouldn’t miss.

The Prater: it used to be the hunting area of the imperial family, and nowadays it holds an amusement park. Don’t forget to get in the ferry wheel to have some lovely views of the city.

The Art History Museum: located in the museum quartier, it’s probably one of the best museums in the world. The museum holds an impressive collection of Egyptian and Greek art as well as a great collection of European works, as Dürer, Velazquez, Bruegel…

  • Food

Wiener Schnitzel: you can have one of pork or  veal cutlet battered, and it usually comes with potatoes smash and a little salad, and I love it!

Sachertorte: the original one is from Sacher Hotel. It’s a chocolate cake with apricot jam. Perfect for chocolate lovers.

Apfelstrudel: it’s a cake made of apple, sugar and raisins, it’s personally my favourite cake from Vienna.

Neapolitan wafer: from Manner it’s a chocolate-cream sandwich biscuit, the chocolate has hazelnuts, so it tastes like nutella.
