What beauty treatments do you do yourself, and what do you have done?

  1. And what do you skip altogether? ;)

    Things I do myself-

    Hair masks
    Body scrubs
    Manis, lately - I just keep them short, neat and bare. I used to go for weekly pro manis but it's hard to make the time every week.
    All hair removal except eyebrows (bikini line, etc.)

    Things I have done professionally-

    Pedis (every 3 weeks when it's not sandal season - every 2 weeks in summer.)
    Brows - I get them threaded. It hurts me so much more when I try to pluck each hair myself, threading is faster and less painful for me.
    Haircuts - not talented enough to do this myself lol!

    Things I skip-

    Tanning - I like being pale.
    Hair color - I'm OK with my natural color and I'm too young to have grey hair.
    Facials - my skin is clear naturally, and it gets angry at me when I try to mess with it.
     
  2. Things I do myself-

    Facials- like my own scrubs and masks
    Body Scrubs
    Manis- i also keep them short and bare, manicured and clean.
    Eyebrows- I just pluck them, Its easy and I pluck only the hairs I want gone.

    Things I do Professionally-

    Pedis- Every 2 weeks
    Hair Cuts
    Hair Color- No gray, Just keeping it darker

    Things I skip-

    Tanning- No wrinkled skin here

    Things I skip-

    Tanning-I've never been big on tanning, but I just bought Jergens self tanner lotion, been using it almost a week and am noticeably darker and NOT orange-I love it.

  13. Great thread!

    Things I do myself:
    mani occasionally (depends)
    pedi occasionally (also depends. I run and skate a lot and my feet get so thrashed it almost is not worth spending a lot on a pedi
    facials (monthly)

    hair cut and highlights
    bikini wax
    french mani
    pedi (not as often, but a few x's a year)
    eyebrow wax & tint
    facial/steaming twice a year

    What I avoid:
    tanning - I love my porcelain skin...are you kidding me I'm of scottish heritage so I'm pasty white year 'round, LOL!
     
  14. What I do:
    Facials (not as often as I would like, tho)
    Root touch-ups
    Eye-brow & under-arm tweezing, & all other hair removal
    Mani's and Pedi's
    - never enjoyed having mani's & pedi's done professionally; sometimes they cut too much of the skin on the side of my nails, I hate that!

    What I get done:
    All-over colour at the salon
    - have been going to my hairdresser for 15+ yrs now! I hope she never retires! I'd be lost!

    What I don't do:
    Purposely tan
    - I used to just sit and bake, but not any more. I'll tan while I'm biking, and that's most of the summer; I'll have a nice glow. I'm appreciating my fare skin now bec when I travelled to Manila I was stared at so much in the malls, they thought I was a celebrity or something. (I'm not Filipino; just Chinese/English/Norwegian)

    -Hair coloring (I have some grays and get bored way too easily with the same hair color for a couple of months)

    -Pedicures (I'm great at manis but can't handle feet for some reason). I don't even get pedis often. Just during sandal season.


    What I won't do:

    -Any kind of tanning. I like my fair skintone!! It's what I most get compliments for.
