To wax or not to wax, that is the question. A less famous quote by Shakespeare, or a thought that many a woman has had over the course of her life?

The questions don't stop there, though. Often we wonder how often we should wax, what kind of wax is right for us, what the beautician is thinking when we're getting waxed...

Intimate waxing is indeed intimate, and it means there's often a lot of questions that we're too awkward, or even too afraid to ask.

So that's why we've done this post - we're answering the top 10 questions our clients have asked (or have wanted to ask and simply felt too awkward to do it).

1. Should I get a hot wax or a strip wax "down there"?

It's widely acknowledged nowadays that, contrary to (some) men's beliefs, women don't beautify themselves for men. Sure, if we're going on a date we're likely to make sure we look nice, but nine times out of ten it's the other women in our lives that notice when we've had our nails done, or our hair trimmed, rather than the men in our lives. (And it's probably a good thing, too. According to the men of Reddit, the main thing men notice about a woman's nails is whether or not they're clean, with one bloke saying "as long as they aren't visibly diseased, natural nails are just fine." Cheers, random man of Reddit.)

But it's an interesting question and one that's sparked debate on b...

1. Acne/Spots

Spots can be caused by bacteria as well by hormones. An excess of bacteria can be caused by the pH levels of your skin being imbalanced.

We've all seen the videos on YouTube. Charcoal masks have been huge this year, and they make huge promises too. As well as claiming to unblock your pores, they also claim to leave your skin feeling clean, clear and silky smooth.

This is because they're filled with skin purifying charcoal. 

And sure, it hurts a little when you peel it off, but pain is beauty, right?

Not really.

Generally speaking, anything we do with our skin need to be gentle. Our skin is our first barrier against germs and dirt, so we want to keep it as protected as possible.

So if you're using charcoal masks or have considered using it, here are 5 things you need to know:

1. Activated Charcoal Doesn't Work Like Tha...

It happens every year. One minute it’s October and the next minute I’m scrambling to finish my Christmas shopping and we’re running low on glittery red nail varnish!

It’s December already, Christmas Eve in fact, and what a great year it’s been for us here at All About Me!
