Hack: Replace Your Razor with a Serum for Smooth Skin

Hack: Replace Your Razor with a Serum for Smooth Skin

Updated May 17, 2019

Hairy or hairless? That is the question. Jk there are drastically more important situations happening in this world.

HOWEVER, you cannot truly help this world if you don’t know what is authentic to you. That includes deciding whether you go with hair, without hair, or you really couldn’t give two shits. Being self-aware about the small things adds up to bigger things. Adds up to feeling confident, to giving another woman a compliment, to stepping out of your comfort zone and turning someone’s day around.

Know that it doesn’t matter whether you are hairless or have a body covered in hair. Maybe you haven’t found what feels truest to you yet. All of this is okay! Plus, being authentic to you can change from hairy in 2019 to hairless in 2020. There is no shame in who you are. The truth is that change comes with being self-aware. You are meant to evolve and grow.

Don’t beat yourself up for being human, for being a woman. Having love for your body will allow you to have love for all bodies.

Today, I’m introducing you to Luna Smooth, a company that aims to create better solutions for maintaining a hairless body. Even if you don't shave, they sell a Himalayan salt scrub! If you aren’t interested, you can always share with your #EmpowerSquad.

We believe it should be easy to always be your smoothest, sexiest self. Shaving, waxing, and plucking can be a pain and cost you precious time and money. So we set out on a mission to make the best solution available to reduce and slow the growth of unwanted hair.

Luna Smooth is our original secret recipe and the only product of its kind. Always made with pure natural ingredients. Gently rub into desired areas once a day before bedtime. That’s it. Stay young. Stay beautiful. Stay sexy.

Their products are made in the U.S. and are certified cruelty-free.

You first remove the hair from the areas you want hairless. Then you rub in the serum every night before bed. To speed up the process, you can apply the serum morning and night.

Luna Smooth recommends using the Himalayan Salt Scrub first to exfoliate the skin and moisturize.

I would use the Waterless Shave Gel the first day. The second day I would use the scrub and the serum.

Why? Because I have personally shaved and for some reason thought that it was okay to rub in a scrub on newly, scraped skin. If you haven’t made that unwise decision, please don’t. MAJOR stinging and a lessoned learned. 😅😂

A few FAQs:

If I stop using Luna Smooth will my hair grow back as normal?

Yes, after you stop the use of Luna Smooth your hair will slowly begin to grow back as normal.

Can I use Luna Smooth on my genital areas?

We don't recommend the use of Luna Smooth in the genital regions.

& remember: Just like with any quality product, it will take time to see results. So stick with it. I believe in you!

 

What parts of you are hairy or hairless? If hairless, what method do you currently use?
