50% of women have spider veins, and most will eventually form them. Fortunately, they are easy to treat.

Here are some Summer Circulatory Tips

  • If you have already began seeing spider veins, wear mild compression stockings (15-20mmhg) to prevent more
  • Drink lots of fluids. Staying hydrated promotes good circulation
  • If traveling by plane, stand up and walk up and down the aisle for few minutes. If traveling by car, stretch at rest stops
  • Rise up and down on the tip of your toes while standing to promote circulation in the lower body
  • Avoid High Salt Foods: Unhealthy foods packed with salt can cause constipation, which puts pressure on the venous system
  • Stay Active
  • Avoid Alcohol: Alcohol is dehydrating, especially when traveling by air. Dehydration is not good for circulation. 
  • When sitting, flex and extend your ankle and rotate your ankle

Spring is here!  Living in Maine makes one look forward to the first 70 degree day like no other. Winters are so long and dark, by the time spring finally arrives the thought of hot sunny beach days distracts my thoughts. It is also a time to start thinking about beginning another summer hair removal routine. Let’s face it, the easiest way to manage the unwanted hair is to create a routine which involves good products to make the experience easy, and pain free. Women have been removing unwanted hair for thousands of years, for a variety of reasons.

Archaeologists believe that the earliest razors used for hair removal were made of flint. These "blades" have been discovered in many excavations of prehistoric human dwellings and may date as far back as 30,000 B.C. Metalworking advancements developed in Egypt, India and Greece in 3,000 B.C. introduced the first permanent and reusable razors. It was these metal razors and modified versions of them that would be used for centuries to come, through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and into the Victorian era. Many of the earliest forms of hair removal were related to other body modification rituals, including piercing and body art. For many primitive tribes, hair removal could be seen as a form of tribal status and wealth. Nowadays, hair removal has become much more a part of vanity grooming, with various social stigmas being attached to different types of hair removal.

It began with the May, 1915 edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine that featured a model sporting the latest fashion. She wore a sleeveless evening gown that exposed, for the first time in fashion, her bare shoulders, and her (shaved) armpits. Shocking at first, this soon caught on. At the same time a marketing executive with the Wilkinson Sword Company, which made razor blades for men, designed a campaign to convince women that underarm hair was unfeminine. By 1917 the sales of razor blades doubled as women conformed to this feminine stereotype of shaving under their arms.

The trend has continued. The average amount of time a woman will shave in her lifetime is 7,718 times, the average amount of time per shave is 10.9 minutes.  That’s an average of 322 days per lifetime dedicated to shaving our legs and armpits. Lucky for me, I was given some amazing shaving products that will make all of this shave time much easier.
