Suffering for beauty...

OK, fess up: What are the things that you do for beauty that you just really hate doing?

 

Whether they're just plain annoying or actually painful- what are the things you wish you didn't have to do?

 

I'll start- I'm currently suffering in the "just did my hair" routine.  I'm someone who needs a shower every day to feel human- but when I do my hair, I just wash up for a day or two to try to buy a bit more time out of every time I go red. By day 2-3, I'll wet the hair so that I can blow it out.  But this morning, my hair still feels clean but is driving me nuts!

 

I also hate the daily shaving routine in the summer.

Cute! I don't think I've seen anyone do coral, you should post a pic if/when you do it. I have been unable to decide what I want to do with my hair so it's just been blonde for ages, blah.

Re: Suffering for beauty...

Ugh, I feel you with the red issues!  I'm way too chicken to do it myself- so I lose 90 minutes every 4 weeks.

Re: Suffering for beauty...

Ugg,there are so many things!   First on my list would be self tanning.  I love the way it looks when its done, but it is just so much work and it is so tedious and you really have to work hard to make sure you dont get streaks lol.  I also hate waxing in general becuase it hurts, its sticky and wax tends to get everywhere even though I use the pre-waxed strips.  I also hate shaving my legs!  It takes sooo much time!!! Oh and using the at home gel nail systems.  They look great and last a long time, but there are so many steps and again it takes so long!!!

 

I could keep going, but thses are definetely the things I hate the most and always put off until there's just no getting around doing lol.

I love doing my own gels. I suck at painting my nails, so it does take a while, but I normally do it while watching TV on a Thursday night. It goes by quicker that way! Once I'm done I can go do chores & not worry about messing up my nails & they last a lot longer. I hated painting my nails with regular polish, waiting forever for them to be fully dry, only to wake up the next morning with a chip or smudge Smiley Sad 

Re: Suffering for beauty...

I TOTALLY feel the same way!! I love painting my nails, but I feel like I always manage to screw them up within the first 20 minutes after I did them. I found that nails inc Kensington Caviar top coat has been the best I've used so far in terms of making your nails touch dry in a realistic amount of time. 

Re: Suffering for beauty...

I'm too scared to self-tan!

Re: Suffering for beauty...

Me too... I am so pale too... I bet I would look terrible Smiley Happy

Brushing out my hair everyday...  I have long, curly hair so I have to rinse and condition it everyday and make sure the curls stick together so it looks half decent.  It's a pain to brush it out so there are no snarls and the curls don't frizz up.  Even with styling products there is a chance for frizz even though it's not that often.

Re: Suffering for beauty...

I hear yah...I hate brushing my hair!

I have long layers and I rarely brush my hair...

I feel like i'm committing some sort of a major hair crime ;-D
