How to Wax your Upper Lip at Home Step by Step

Wax Your Upper Lip Essay Method

Almost every woman has at least a little peach fuzz on her upper lip. The truth is, you probably notice it more than anyone who’s ever seen you.

Women with dark hair on their upper lips have done everything to hide it (powder, concealer, overdrawn lip lines), and it often works better than you think. Still, if the hair’s too much for you, here’s some tips on removing it.

There are tons of different products out there for removing facial hair, but your best bet is a wax kit. (Please don’t try and tweeze it.Anyone else who’s home will call 911 after they hear that scream, and your lip will be red for days.)

You can get this done professionally, but if you give yourself a couple of trial runs at home and get used to a kit you like, the DIY method works just as well.

Those ladies at the nail salon are rather violent, and if you have sensitive skin, you’ll often be bothered by the unidentified products they’re using. If you do decide to brave the lip hair removal yourself, here are a few helpful tidbits as you go through the procedure:

   1. Keep skin protected. Wash the area first with a creamy cleanser and pat dry. In order to form a protective barrier between the wax and your lovely skin to reduce irritation, dust a light powder on your upper lip. The powder will also absorb the remaining moisture in the area, so wax will go on properly.
   2. Prepare your wax the right way. Heat the wax until it looks like honey. (Usually. When in doubt, just FOLLOW DIRECTIONS.) Before waxing, always test the temperature to ensure that it won’t burn you. (Yes, violently yanking your hair out is okay, but burning is not. Don’t ask me.) You can test it on your inner wrist just like you would with a baby bottle. If it’s burning your arm, then let it sit out for a while. (Duh.) Once you think the wax is ready, stretch your skin taut by rolling your upper lip down over your teeth. (Yes, I do know how that sounded. Shut up.) This will ensure that all the wax touches all the hair at the best angle possible. Spread the wax starting from the divot in the center that connects your nose and mouth, expanding out to each corner.
   3. Pull! Okay, this can be kind of scary, but you’ve already got wax all over your lip and arm. Commit! Once the wax has cooled but is still pliable, use one hand to hold down the paper and the other to lift the lower edge up at one end. In a quick motion, pull the strip off using an upward motion. Ouch! Afterward you can soothe your skin with an alcohol-free toner like Chanel Precision Activateur Tendre Soothing Toner. I know you don’t like me right now sweetie, but the important thing is that you respect me.

Here are a couple of waxing tips:

   1. If you take painkillers at least one hour before waxing, it should minimize the sting. I know what you’re thinking: “Why didn’t you tell me this before?” Well, I’m trying to toughen you up. You guys are my beauty soldiers, and I need you hardened. Also, I don’t encourage needless medication consumption. Needless painful beauty procedures, though, are no problem!
   2. Make the wax at the ends of your mouth thicker than in the middle – it will make the wax easier to move.
   3. After waxing, always wear sunscreen on the waxed area. Freshly waxed skin is more prone to sun damage. Actually, ALL skin is prone to sun damage, so just wear sunscreen everywhere all the time!
   4. Immediately after waxing, rub an ice cube on the area to help soothe the skin and remove redness.
   5. Just to be safe, NEVER use waxing products that contain retinoid. They can make your skin extremely sensitive and prone to all kinds of damage.

Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose Level – Professional Approach

Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose Level – Professional Approach

How is diabetes managed?

Monitoring your own glucose is done with a Glucose Meter. Self-monitoring is often called SMBG (self-monitoring of blood glucose). Glucose meters today are small,battery-operated devices.

A sample of blood

When you want to test for glucose with a glucose meter you need to place a small sample of your blood on a test strip. Your skin is pricked with a lancet – like a very fast pin-prick.

These test strips are disposable. You then place the strip in the monitor. The strips are coated with glucose dehydrogenase or hexokinase that combines with glucose in blood.

The blood is usually taken from a finger, but some meters allow the use of other parts of the body to supply the blood sample.
How the meter works

The meter tells you how much glucose is present in your blood. How meters do this may vary. With some meters a measurement of the amount of electricity that passes through your blood sample is measured, while others measure the degree of reflection of light. The glucose level is displayed as a number. In the case of this picture (below right) the person’s glucose level is low. Many of the new meters can store a series of test results, while others can be connected to your personal computer to store results, which you can also print out.

How to choose a glucose meter

According to the FDA there are 25 different meters on the market. They are not all the same. You should bear the following in mind when choosing one:

* Testing speed

* Size

* Memory (ability to store results)

* Price

The newer models have automatic timing, error codes and signals, barcode readers to help with calibration. Some have spoken instructions for people who are visually impaired.

Using your meter

Frequency of meter usage varies significantly from patient-to-patient. It is important that you adhere to the instructions given to you from your health care provider. Every person with diabetes should be self-monitoring his/her blood glucose – this is especially so for people who are taking insulin.

According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), patients with Type 1 should self-monitor blood glucose at least three times per day.

The ADA says that women with gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) should self-test twice a day.

There is no general recommendation from the ADA regarding frequency of self-testing for Type 2 patients.

Most patients who do have to self-test will generally have to do so before meals, a couple of hours after meals, at bedtime, 3.a.m., and whenever signs or symptoms are felt.

When a patient changes medication testing should be carried out more frequently.

If you have an unusual illness or sudden stress, you should test more frequently.

Knowing how to use your meter

As meters work in different ways you should get training from a diabetes educator.

Using a glucose meter – instructions

* Wash your hands with warm water and soap. Dry completely. You could also dab or wipe the area with alcohol and then dry completely.

* Use the lancet to prick your fingertip.

* Hold your hand down. Hold your finger at the same time until you see a small droplet of blood appear.

* Place the blood on the test strip.

* Follow the instructions for placing the test strip and using your meter.

* Keep a record of your result.

Many regulatory authorities, such as the FDA, require that meters and test strips come with instructions. It is important that you become familiar with these instructions, which should be included in the User Manual. Some meters give out an error code if something is wrong. Checking the User Manual will tell you what the error code means.
