Taking a break from waxing in the winter months is a big no no. It's the perfect time to get into waxing and definitely keeping up your routine.

.

Even if you leave a little longer between treatments, keep it up and don't reach for the razor or hair removal creams. Regular waxing weakens the follicles as hair has three stages of growth; anagen, catagen and telegen. It's best to wax when your hair is in the catagen stage of growth. This is difficult to determine as we are working blind and can actually see the roots, but after a few waxing sessions it becomes clear as to the growth pattern and you can train the hair to suit your scheduled appointments over time.

Waxing in winter preps growth cycles for the summer months. If you start waxing every four weeks, all your hair will eventually start growing at the same time instead of beginning in various growth stages. By starting waxing, or continuing your waxing during the winter, you will get ahead and train the hair to grow at the same stage. This will lead to longer times between treatments eventually.

The more you get waxed, the less it hurts. The root is removed when you wax, but when you shave you are only cutting the hair off at the root. If you take a long break from waxing during the winter it may start to hurt again. Waxing also gives the legs a good exfoliation leaving the skin smoother for longer with no more stubble, shaving or razor burn for those sensitive legs or other areas. There are different types of wax we can use from strip wax to hot wax for extremely sensitive skin. The wax we use on each client can be determined at your appointment, and a patch test is required for those undergoing this treatment for the first time.

Having your under arm waxed is becoming more and more popular. It may be a little sore initially, but you soon get used to it. It's amazing how fast the growth slows down, and there is no shadow left behind under the arms. It's one of the areas that reacts quite quickly to waxing. Some clients only have to wax under arms every five to six weeks as it gets lighter after a very short time.

I would highly recommend starting your waxing journey in the winter for the best results as you're less likely to get caught out if the sun shines and the shorts come out.

The Brazilian bikini wax is as popular as ever and the next most popular is the half leg wax.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
