Uncomfortable Beauty Chat

Uncomfortable Beauty Chat
I write about beauty related topics pretty much most of the time on my little blog yet I always seem to float over those 'uncomfortable' discussions about beauty that we deal or have dealt with in the past. It was only until I wrote my June Favourites where I awkwardly mentioned my love for a glass foot file that I wanted to talk more in-depth about uncomfortable, awkward beauty topics we all deal with.

Foot care: Feet are not the most flattering parts of people's body but taking care of them is essential. We are on our feet a lot of the time and to avoid taking care of them is just going to resort in blisters, dry, sore or even worse problems. I like to use the VAMA glass file* every few days (especially in summer) then go over with some moisturizer just to keep my feet feeling fresh and clean. If you are interested in the foot file you can get 15% off the code KATIE15P (expires 31/08/15). I also sometimes like to use a foot mask or dip my feet into some hot water for 10 minutes just to keep my feet feeling nice and pampered.

Odour: Probably the most suitable word to describe this and the perfect timing since summer is here! Finding an antiperspirant or deodorant to suit your needs can take some time. I have tried both roll on and spray products but I found my body was more comfortable with Dove invisible dry spray. Not that I sweat but of course I do get hot from the gym or this summer heatwave we currently have therefore spraying deodorant is essential. What I love about Dove is the scent remains all day and they now have miniature sizes to carry in your handbags.

Hair Removal: I am lucky enough to have fair hair so I can get away with not shaving my legs for quite awhile. Once summer arrives I find myself shaving more frequently as I wear more dresses, shorts and small tops. Of course it can become annoying at times but I find using Veet Wax Strips the best in summer as they are so quick and easy to use. My legs always feel smooth and clean after using these whereas with razors they can sometimes feel quite dry and more time consuming. I found reading the How to guides on hair removal* on Veet's website a big help for keeping away any hairs or keeping your skin feeling smooth, they have loads of important points that make things a lot easier.

Oral Care: I am all for taking care of my teeth because at the end of the day we only get one real set! I like to brush my teeth, floss and finish off with some mouthwash. Mouthwashes are great they always feel refreshing, powerful and you are left with a nice taste (most of the time!). Having bad breath isn't the most flattering of things to have therefore carrying some chewing gum or mints are always handy! I even carry a miniature size floss in my bag just in case!

  1. I don't see why anything should be uncomfortable to talk about, all of those points cover pretty much everyone! It's so annoying that society makes everyone want to appear perfect so in order to do that these topics are glossed over!

  5. Love the dove invisible spray. I also agree with a lot of the comments, let's be open and talk about the not so glamorous things... Next step is writing about our periods to stop that perfectly natural topic being so taboo! Great post

    1. It is the best deodorant ever! I agree it is rare I see bloggers discuss these topics, like why is it such an unusual thing to include a mouthwash in your favourites? Thank you!

  6. Glad someone finally covered something that isn't based around perfection 24/7, it ain't natural!

  7. Like you having pale hair is a bit of a God send for hair removal. But I don't think any of these topics should be off limits, they effect everyone more than what mascara to pick!
