Permanent Hair Removal with Silk'n Infinity

15:34

As someone who has PCOS ( Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) excess hair is one of the annoying symptoms of the condition. I'm fed up having to shave almost every day due to excess hair in areas such as my stomach, top lip and chin. I also find general shaving such as my legs and under arms annoying as I'm having to shave frequently as it grows back so quickly.

 I've considered laser hair removal before however the cost always put me off. However thanks to Silk'n who do a very handy Silk'n Infinity laser hair removal device I can now permanently remove hair in the comfort of my own home. 


I've been asked to trial the Silk'n infinity device and to share my results. The typical treatment plan is as follows:

Treatments 1-4  plan 2 weeks apart 
Treatments 5-7  plan 4 weeks apart
Treatments  8 + treat as needed.

I'll be sharing my results here on my blog in 2 further blog posts after a few months to share how I get on and how well it works for me.



The Silk'n Infinity can be used on many areas of your body to remove unwanted hair. Ideal body areas include: underarms, bikini line, arms, legs, face ( below the cheekbones), back, shoulders and chest. The typical full hair growth cycle may take 18 to 24 months. During this time is when multiple treatments using the Silk'n Infinity would maybe required to achieve permanent hair removal. 

How does the Silk'n Infinity work?


Silk'n build on the world-renowned HPL technology with Galvanic Energy and Optical Energy. These energies combine to give you a more efficient hair removal solution. Working together with 5 different energy levels, they open the skin pores and allow the light to reach the hair follicles without pain, irritation or ingrown hairs.


Who Can Use Silk’n?

The Silk'n Infinity is suitable for all skin tones, including the darkest skin colours and almost all hair colours. That includes redheads, blondes, and greys.

So now begins my journey of using the Silk'n Infinity. I do hope that I get noticeable results over time.

Why Wooden Furniture is a great option for your home

12:30

*In collaboration with Trade Furniture Company 

Wooden furniture is a great option for all households. Today I am sharing with you why if you don't already have wooden furniture you need to.

Wooden furniture is suitable for any room in your home and you can get all kinds of colours and styles from retro looking pieces to rustic designs and even painted oak for a modern feel.


Wooden furniture can really transform the look and feel of a room or entire house. Making the home feel welcoming and creating a cosy and homely feel. 

There are many advantages other than the style aspect of having wooden furniture in the home. 

Strength and durability 

Wooden furniture tends to last alot longer than other materials as it's a robust material which is made to last. The durability of wooden furniture means that should you choose to sell a well looked after piece than you should be able to maintain the value. Also the durability of wood means it's easy to maintain.

Sustainability 

Because wood is made to last it's a sustainable option. The production and processing of woods carbon footprint is much lower than other building materials available. Buying wooden pieces locally helps by supporting the local timber industry.

Variety

As I mentioned earlier in this post you can get many different colours of wood and styles. Beautiful wood living room furniture can be purchased in dark or light woods and you can opt for many different styles such as retro, vintage, rustic and modern painted oak.

Versatility 

I also mentioned previously that wooden furniture is ideal for all homes. This is because wood is such a versatile material. With the many colour and style options available it means that it suits all home styles. Wooden furniture doesn't have to be just indoors either as you can find many excellent quality outdoor furniture pieces that when treated correctly with the right oils can withstand exposure the elements.
