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.

The question of pedestrianisation in the town centre has divided Killarney for years but a survey by the Killarney Advertiser this week shows the town slightly more in favour of it.

A total of 37.14 percent of respondents want the pedestrianisation of Plunkett St to remain as it is – closed to traffic on a permanent basis while 24.76 want it to go back to its pre-pandemic arrangement where the street was only closed to vehicular traffic between 7pm and 7am each night.

An additional 34.29 percent want to see an increase in pedestrianisation in town centre by extending the Main St arrangement that was in place during the summer. In that period the town’s main thoroughfare was closed to traffic, day and night, during the weekend.

Only 20 percent of the respondents want to abolish pedestrianisation altogether, but that is still a significant number ensuring that this debate will linger on for a long time yet.

A local group hosting a life-saving information day tomorrow (Saturday) are to receive huge exposure on national TV after a crew came down to interview them about their campaign.

Members of Killarney Cardiac Response Unit (KCRU) – who are planning a ‘Restart a Heart Day’ to raise awareness about life-saving techniques – invited journalist Paul Byrne and Virgin Media TV crew to town this week.

It’s hoped their campaign will be broadcast tonight (Friday) or tomorrow (Saturday).

The KCRU event takes place tomorrow in ANAM Arts and Cultural Centre between 10.30am and 4pm as part of the European Restart a Heart Day. It’ll include CPR demos, public information, an art display, a video launch w️ith many prizes to be won.

“The crew interviewed Community Responder Helen Duggan who explained the events taking place on Saturday,” Kevin O’Leary from KCRU told the Killarney Advertiser.

“European Restart a Heart Day was founded with the support of the European parliament and takes place on October 16 every year. We’re spreading the message that 20 minutes of your time could make all the difference saving a life.”

In 2021, the focus of the event is on survivors with the hashtag #CPRSavedMyLife.

“With this campaign we want to create awareness that everyone can learn CPR and facilitate BLS courses in schools and public locations.”

He said they hope that Kerry TDs Danny Healy-Rae, Brendan Griffin and Minister for Education Norma Foley will be in attendance throughout the day, and the public are invited to attend.

“Find out how simple actions can save lives. Prizes include a three day First Aid course valued at €300, two First Aid kits, and a voucher for a local business.”
