Bikini Wax Services: Sugaring vs Waxing — What You Need to Know

Sugaring Bikini Wax Near Me LA Bikini Logo

A natural bikini waxing alternative, learn about sugaring, the painless alternative to waxing.

I have been sugared into a new woman. Forget Waxing. Painful and dangerous are two words I don't want anywhere near my tender Brazilian area Inspired by ancient Egyptian organic hair removal …”

— The Internet Bachelorette

MOBILE, AL, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — +++

When it comes to effective hair removal techniques, sugaring and waxing are both popular alternatives to shaving. But which method is better? Least painful? Waxing has been a popular salon offering for decades. Still, increasing numbers of people are searching for Brazilian sugar wax near me because they've come to understand the benefits that sugaring features. Learn about the similarities and differences between these two popular shaving alternatives. If you are looking for a bikini waxing service instead of searching bikini wax near me, look at LA Bikini's Sugaring method.

What is Waxing?

To remove hair by the waxing technique, technicians will apply hard or soft wax—usually a combination of both—to the person's eyebrows, legs, back, or bikini line. The wax is applied in the same direction that the hair grows. Once the wax has sufficiently dried, the technician will pull off the wax in the opposite direction of the hair's growth. Pulling hair out by the root is useful but can be painful. There's an 'ouch' factor with waxing not seen when sugaring.

What Is Sugaring?

Sugaring is the modern painless way for excellent hair removal results. It features a sugar-based paste that is all-natural and has no preservatives, unlike wax. To perform sugaring for hair removal, technicians will apply the sugar paste in the opposite direction of the hair growth. This is important to note, as it is the opposite of the first step in the old waxing method. Your technician will remove the sugaring paste in the direction that the hair is growing. The result is considerably less pain than what one typically experiences with waxing.

What Are the Pros and Cons for Waxing?

Waxing has been one of the few popular hair removal methods for decades. Unfortunately, it can be painful, causing people to squirm in the salon while undergoing the process. Waxing removes hair from the root, which is a replacement for shaving. The process not only removes the hair but also exfoliates, so it removes dead skin cells as well. Many salons feature waxing, so it's easy to come by if you're in need of a hair-removal session.

Waxing does have some downsides, however. It hurts. The pain associated with bikini wax is real. The pain isn't always a momentary discomfort either. Many people leave their waxing session with inflamed, irritated skin. They may need to use creams or ointments to soothe the skin and cannot go out into the sun until it heals, or the discomfort will only increase.

Wax is an adhesive. So, it's going to hurt when it's ripped or torn off—no matter how gentle the technician tries to be.

The wax itself can be problematic. Most people don't know what's in it. It typically contains a mixture of resin, oils, and other preservatives along with beeswax. The chemicals contained in wax mixtures can actually burn the skin and increase the risk of a painful infection. Instead of silky smooth skin, people can be left with inflamed skin that's painful to the touch.

Another issue with waxing is that it can only be applied once, due to the harsh nature of the procedure. So, if the wax doesn't pull out all the hair beneath it, you can be left with broken hairs in place or patches of hair that didn't adhere to the wax.

The Pros and Cons of Sugaring

Sugaring can help you get that silky smooth skin you crave—and typically with less pain than the waxing technique. There's really little to fear about all-natural sugaring paste because it doesn't contain the harsh chemicals that wax does. Instead, its ingredients are sugar, water, and lemon. Some makers may add honey or botanical oils to make their proprietary mixes. Just like wax, the sugaring paste exfoliates the skin, but more gently, which is why people report less pain when they're experiencing this method. And because there is less pain and skin irritation, the paste can be reapplied if needed during a single session.

Sugaring wax is not an adhesive, so it doesn't adhere to your live skin cells. There also aren't any chemicals that can burn your skin. So, you won't have that ouch factor you experience with waxing. The gentle ingredients won't cause your skin to become inflamed or irritated either. Unlike wax, bacterias don't breed in sugar paste, so you have less to be concerned about on the infection front too!

Is there a downside to sugaring? Not really—except, not all salons offer it! If you want to try sugaring instead of waxing, you'll need to find a salon that provides this service and LA Bikini in Mobile does just that! Fortunately, as sugaring grows in popularity, the LA Bikini experience is evolving to meet that demand and the Mobile saloon is growing in size and in local popularity

Responding to the increased risk for intimate partner homicide during the COVID-19 pandemic, Voices4Change offers free film streaming, resources, and training.

READING, PA, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each year, 50,000 women are murdered by their partners or family members worldwide and in the United States more than 4 women each day are killed by intimate partners. With the spread of Covid-19 and the subsequent orders for social distancing, the risks to victims of intimate partner violence are on the rise. Law enforcement officials across the country and around the world are already reporting an uptick in domestic violence calls amid fears that the current crisis increases the likelihood of lethal or near-lethal abuse.

Domestic violence perpetrators frequently use isolation to control, intimidate and facilitate their abuse. With more and more communities facing a lock down, victims find themselves literally imprisoned with their abusers, with none of their usual support systems (i.e. work, school, community) available to escape the violence. It’s a situation that some have described as a “ticking time bomb” (https://nomore.org/listening-from-home/).

“As a survivor of domestic and gun violence, I’ve been describing the situation of women and children being isolated at home right now with an abuser as a powder keg,” said Kate Ranta, featured in FINDING JENN’S VOICE and author of Killing Kate: A Story of Turning Abuse and Tragedy into Transformation and Triumph.“ Abusers thrive in situations exactly like this, where they have complete power and control. Their victims are trapped, and it’s extremely volatile and dangerous.”

During this time of uncertainty and fear, many people are turning to online resources for information and support. Voices4Change.net is a digital resource for intimate partner violence survivors and professionals. The site offers online training for healthcare professionals and law enforcement, discussion forums for survivors and professionals, and a portal to FINDING JENN’S VOICE.

FINDING JENN’S VOICE is an award-winning documentary film which examines the risks of homicide during pregnancy and reveals the nature of abusive relationships. Featuring the stories of survivors of intimate partner homicide attempts and grounded in the research of leading domestic violence experts, the film paints a picture of intimate partner violence that looks beyond the black eye.

Filmmaker and social worker Tracy Schott observes, “Film is a powerful medium in creating social change. Through this website, we hope to change the horrific statistics and consequences of intimate partner violence by helping people recognize abusive relationships before they become deadly. Given the increased dangers associated with social distancing, I think it’s important to remove any financial obstacles to getting this information where it can save lives.”

Schott has partnered with a number of organizations who are helping to get the word out to their constituents about this offer: Conference on Crimes Against Women, Global Peace Film Festival, Global Rights for Women, JWI (Jewish Women International Alliance to End Domestic Abuse), Respond Against Violence, Women Count USA, and 1GEN have all pledged to support this effort. “We’re committed to offering this service for free for the month of April but hope to find the support to continue to do so indefinitely,” says Schott.

Individuals and organizations interested in joining Voices4Change are encouraged to reach out to info@voices4change.net.

How open source ad blockers could save you 2 hours a week

The results of open source ad blockers show they are effective at removing ads.

Some of the results of a new study on open source ad blockers. Some ad blockers block the add and leave white space, but uBlock Origin cuts all ads and makes more content viewable on the screen.

A new study shows open source ad blockers would save the average Internet user more than 100 hours a year while also saving energy and pollution.

Although free and open source ad blockers save energy and are good for the environment, people use them primarily to block annoying ads and save themselves time.”

— Professor Joshua Pearce

HOUGHTON, MI, US, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new study meant to investigate energy conservation of free and open source ad blockers has unexpectedly shown that Internet ads are wasting shocking amounts of your time.

More importantly, the results show how you can get that time back. The study estimates that the average Internet user would save over 100 hours a year by using uBlock Origin, a free and open source ad blocker. “uBlock Origin was the most effective ad blocker tested, but all ad blockers save time, energy and money”, explained Joshua Pearce, a Professor of Engineering at Michigan Technological University.

The results show that page load time dropped 11% with AdBlock+, 22% with Privacy Badger, and 28% with uBlock Origin. These are not significant on a single page, but Internet users spend more than half of their time online rapidly clicking through websites spending less than 15 seconds on a given page. “With all these clicks, the additional time to load ads really starts to add up,” says Pearce.

The article “Energy Conservation with Open Source Ad Blockers” published in the journal Technologies was originally conceived to address rising energy consumption. Internet-related electricity consumption is rising rapidly as global Internet users spend more than 6.5 hours per day online. Americans, for example, have more than doubled the time they spend online since 2000 to almost 24 hours a week. Open source ad blockers have the potential to reduce the time and thus electricity spent by eliminating ads during Internet browsing and video streaming.

In the study, three open source ad blockers were tested against a no-ad blocker control. Page load times were recorded for browsing a representative selection of the globally most-accessed websites including web searching (like Google, Yahoo and Bing), information (like weather.com) and news sites (like CNN, Fox and the New York Times). In addition, the study analyzed the time spent watching ads on videos for both trending and non-trending content. This part of the study was more challenging because of the lack of data on what ratio of YouTube watching time is spent on trending and non-trending content. The time wasted viewing ads per video ranged from 0.06% up to staggering 21%. Thus, total hours lost to loading ads was only recorded for browsing.

“Overall, the results showed that the energy wasted loading ads is not trivial,” summarized Pearce. As a lot of the electricity used for running computers continues to come from coal, which causes air pollution and premature death, the study analyzed the potential for ad blockers to save American lives. The results were shocking: the energy conserved if everyone in the United States used the open source ad blocker would save over 36 Americans lives per year.

Electricity costs money, so cutting ads could also save consumers money. Pearce said, “In the United States, if all Internet users enabled Privacy Badger on their computers, Americans would save more than $91 million annually.” Globally, the results of the investigation were even more striking. uBlock Origin could save global consumers more than $1.8 billion/year.

Pearce points out, “This study was done before everyone was forced to stay home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so all the values can be viewed as conservative under estimates.” Overall, the study found open source ad blockers are a potentially effective technology for energy conservation.

“Although free and open source ad blockers save energy and are good for the environment, people use them primarily to block annoying ads and save themselves time,” concludes Pearce.

Egyptian Painter Arafaat to Donate Proceeds of a 1-Million Dollars Artwork Painting to the Chest Diseases Hospital Egypt

COVID-19 Solidarity, a 1-Million Dollars artwork for Corona patients

Egyptian painter Arafaat participates #ArtCanHelp cause on social media for Corona virus solidarity

sometimes looking into your inner-self might allow you to look into infinity”

— Arafaat

DUBAI, DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Carrying the responsibility is a National duty in those urgent circumstances in which the people of the beloved Egypt must join hands to overcome the current crisis of the Coronavirus, which has claimed the lives of about 8,000 people in the world since the beginning of the discovery of the virus, as per WHO latest report yesterday.

The Egyptian painter Arafaat is currently presenting his distinguished works on his new own website and through various social media portals to highlight the depth of cultural diversity of the Egyptian people's mainstream classes and the emotional interaction that Arafaat experienced with all the dark conditions that have passed through Egypt during the last ten years.

The Egyptian artist, Arafaat, highlights the most important stages of his artistic life, which was reflected on his paints through his resistance to religious rule and the destructors of Egyptian culture, "The terrorist Muslim-Brotherhood", and also through the resistance of terrorist sponsors in the beloved land of Sinai claiming religious ownership of Egypt.

Within the framework of that National responsibility of the conditions in Egypt in resisting the spread of the Corona virus, the Egyptian artist, painter Arafaat, has decided to donate the proceeds of selling his painting, called COVID-19 Solidarity, for 1-Million Dollars to the Chest Diseases hospital in Cairo Egypt to renew medical devices and various equipment that will provide the patient with a world class medical service keeping up with the latest scientific methods in diagnosing and treating chest diseases.

It is worth noting that the website of the Egyptian artist, Arafaat, keeps pace with the latest technologies in the acquisition and ownership of paintings through secure Bitcoin and other digital Cryptocurrencies, and also through PayPal payment in Arabic, English, Japanese, and soon Korean and Chinese.

URL for the 1-Million Dollars Artwork (COVID-19 Solidarity) https://www.arafaatfromegypt.gallery/products/covid-19-solidarity

Unique, Unparalleled and Utmost Egyptian Figurative Abstract & Impressionism.

" Arafaat ", 1952- establishes an elevated positioning that other Middle East artists can not match. Arafaat does not repeat the artwork twice because the motive of each painting is unique and aspiring from the deep roots of the Egyptian culture . Expressions are at its extreme whilst curating a paint or an installation to reflect a social status, a response to a status-quo, or an intimidation to a collective behaviour. Arafaat does not create multi-copies or commissioned artwork.

Certificate of Authenticity for the artwork is registered by the official notary office of Egypt and registered in the Ministry of Justice of Egypt. All artwork is signed by artist "Arafaat" himself with Acrylic on Canvas.

(Arafaat From Egypt) official online gallery enables Artwork Collectors to establish secure transactions to own Arafaat Artwork through secure payments, cryptocurrencies and bank transfer.

Arafaat is an Egyptian artist based in Cairo and Dubai.

— Bruce Iglauer, President – Alligator Records

FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — During this currently volatile and disruptive professional environment, everyone is feeling the negative impacts surrounding the professional music community slow down; global radio is no exception. For various financial and logistical reasons, labels and Indie artists are being forced to slow down, or even quit submitting new music to radio.

You may have already been contacted by stations familiar with your music, or noticed a few press releases and notices from stations requesting and looking for new and various types of content, i.e.; music for airplay, videos links for placement on their station website, phone interviews, new station IDs, and Skype artist performances for their listeners.

These radio programmers and music lovers have and will continue to spin new, emerging and classic artists that are not signed to major labels, or are not allowed into the very strict “Top 40” mainstream.

These dedicated music aficionados are ultimately the tastemakers of the world. They can and will play the tracks that they love; why, because they can. They enjoy discovering new music, and vintage recordings that they then share with their fans, their listeners. Fans of DJs, quickly turn into new fans of the artists those DJs play.

Do you have a global radio strategy for 2020? If not, you may want to ask yourself… why not?

Picky Millennials Might Be Saving the Planet

How Today’s Everything Buyers Are Forcing Brands to Shape Up (Or Ship Out)

NEW BRUNSWICK, NEW JERSY, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is nobody more discerning in modern history than the millennial buyer.

Call him what you will, but today’s late 20’s to early 40s aged buyer is deliberate bordering on the fickle, and it shows. Research shows that more than 63% of purchases made online are made based on user-generated content, ranging from Amazon reviews to unboxing videos on YouTube.

But as the social media takeover gets a new kind of foothold, consumers are exercising an even more potent buyer right: the right to take sales from the companies who don’t give a crap.

The Buyers With the Heart On Their Sleeve

Boomers and Gen-Xers may lament the studious tastes of their generational successors, but the fact is that these buyers are about to make up the majority of the nation’s economic might.

In 2018, millennials were projected to overtake Gen-Xers as the carriers for the single largest buying power in the United States, with an estimated $200 billion in collective annual spending.

But this generation spends its money unlike any other, and if there’s one thing the data shows, it’s that the economic constraints of the highest cost of living in decades hasn’t phased them — they’re living frugally, and still putting their money into purchases from ethical brands.

On average, most millennials spend their time and money in places and experiential purchases that are value aligned, meaning they’re willing (and able) to spend more money on things like organic produce, whereas they might save money by cohabitating with friends or family members.

In most cases, what’s most remarkable about this generation is that they’re 75% more likely to buy from a company whose values align with their own.

Millennials are putting their money where their mouth is, and their mouth is fed up with unsustainable business models that take endlessly from the environment.

Greenwashing Is a Bust

About five years ago, marketing terms like ‘natural’ and ‘green’ would fly enough to give companies a spike in interest for conscientious buyers. Over time however, shoppers opened up to the idea that they were being manipulated, and the game got blown wide open.

It shows tremendous restraint on the part of the buyers to hold out and pay more for ethical brands. Now things like MadeSafe and GOTS-certified are the new standards in eco-validation, and buyers are more aware all the time of ways to identify the frauds and the fakes in the business.

The label-reading generation who elicited so many eyerolls in its early days is in its renaissance of making changes, and the effects are rippling out to wider profit margins in value-aligned industries not seen since the dawn of inflation.

Brands are capitalizing on the response in the best way — by greening their businesses, and creating conscious enterprises that operate as a force for good.

It’s Supply and Demand, Baby

For small companies like White Lotus Home, an eco-friendly bedding supplier, the change is hardly a shocker.

“Today’s businesses have to adapt to the “organic” change and understand that Millennials, and even some Gen Xers, read labels and do their homework before shopping. They’re changing many industries,” says President Marlon Pando.

The homegrown New Jersey based company has just celebrated one of its latest in ethical manufacturing achievements: becoming GOTS certified.

“When I started working for White Lotus Home in 2006, it was good enough for customers to know that we were doing our best to be natural and organic, but now they look for proof beyond marketing, they need facts.

At White Lotus Home, integrity has been key, word of mouth is responsible for over 70% of our business and becoming GOTS was the best next step.”

In 2018, a whopping 85% of purpose-driven brands saw positive revenue growth, compared to the 42% of non-purpose driven brands who saw a DROP in revenue.

The numbers speak for themselves: positive changes might exist in the hands of conscious enterprises like White Lotus Home.

White Lotus Home is a sustainable bedding manufacturer selling mattresses, duvets, pillows, sheets, and more online and in-store at their New Jersey showroom location. They’re committed to producing clean, hypoallergenic environmental change, one mattress at a time.
