What would Santa say if he saw those legs?
The nights are closing in, the temperatures are plummeting, and the weather is surely frightful. While Christmas may be the season of goodwill and cheer, 'tis also the season for thick tights, thicker trousers, and breaking out the old leg warmers. As much as mince pies and turkey are the traditional foodstuffs of choice at this time of year, so to is covering up.
In winter, layering becomes an art form.
One thing is certain, nobody will be seeing your legs until spring... possibly summer. And since nobody's going to be looking at them, and you really could use the extra thermal layer, it would seem prudent to let it all grow out and revel in the hairy beast monster you become without regular hair removal. And you're not alone - hoards of women are doing just the same thing!
Winter is a slow time in the beauty industry.

02 Nail Fashion
What better way to brighten gloomy winter days than with bright, glittering nails, and stunning designs? Nail art has really taken off in recent years, with a huge range of polishes, styles and innovations available. From ombre shading to bespoke bows and gems, the latest in high fashion is at the tips of your fingers.
Winter is definitely the time for trying out a new look, mixing things up a bit, and making sure you look your best from head to toe. It may be time to tone things down and replace the bright and radiant blondes of summer with a warmer, richer tone of copper or brunette. The summer sun is a delight to behold but its harsh rays, and the harsher treatment of sand, sea, and surf, can leave the locks looking a little less than stellar. A good cut will trim away the damage while a deep and nourishing treatment restore the lustre of even the most weather-worn hair.
Getting inked is still all the rage and winter is a great time to have a new design, giving your skin plenty of time to heal and rejuvenate before the crops tops and shorts come out for the summer. With new year hot on the heels of Christmas, it's also a time for reflection, and many find they've fallen out of love with their existing ink. Inkaway is a special laser treatment that will take care of any unwanted tattoos, whether they're black or full colour!
Tap into the need to get building those summer bods now, and be sure to offer the latest in laser hair removal with LiteFLO hair removal treatments. Think of all the Christmas parties and the little black dresses that would look infinitely better with sheer tights (or bare legs!). Think of the mistletoe, the merriment, not to mention the potential for a little nookie with your eggnog... Consider the monkey-like limbs lurking beneath your leggings and ask yourself this: what would Santa say if he saw those legs?
Summer bodies are built in winter!
It's difficult to picture yourself in a bikini when it's subzero outside and there's a polar bear wandering through your garden, but summer will be here sooner than you think. As soon as those dark skies roll back and the sun gets a look in you'll be kicking yourself for not starting you beach body prep sooner. Summer bodies are not built on the eve of your holiday, or even in the spring time. They're built at night, in the dark, in the depths of winter, when the last thing you want to think about is going scantily clad in public.
But come bikini season the one thing you will covet more than the perfect two piece is flawlessly smooth skin.
Sure, you can wax, or shave, but these are very short-term solutions that produce inferior results. During the heat of summer, the last thing you want is to have to endure a wax every other week - it's painful, time-consuming, and does nothing to cool you down! When the sun in blazing outside and you're ready to kick back, relax, and soak up some rays, you don't want to be running to the bathroom every other morning to hastily drag a razor over your raw skin.
LiteFLO hair removal treatments will give you the skin of your dreams in six treatments or less. It's a lasting solution to an infuriating problem, but it does take a little planning. The upside is it's a form of pain-free hair removal and it's neither as messy or time-consuming as waxing or shaving. There is a catch, but it's a small one, and if you act now it won't be an issue!
You want stunning legs for summer, but each treatment needs to be four weeks apart. If you require a full six treatments, that means starting six months before you want to strut your stuff on the beach, or even in the shops in your favourite hot pants or skirt.
Due to the nature of the treatment, you will need to avoid UV light for the duration. And what time of year has very little light?
Yes, you guessed it, winter!
