It’s July, beauties!
Summer is on and, yes, miraculously, even in England…so is the heat!
But, let’s face it, excessive perspiration can cause a lot of misery this time of year.
It prevents you from going about daily activities with the usual sassy confidence.
Whether it’s cramped conferences, swaggering in a short-sleeved dress with your hot date, gripping the above handle on London Underground…or taking part in beach sports with your mates.
Sweat issues might even keep you off (shock, horror) the dance floor at your best friend’s wedding!
Personally, anti-perspirants weren’t doing it for me.
I found myself buying mini aerosols all the time, stuffing them in my bag, blushingly, making excuses over dinner and briskly disappearing into the bathroom to spray my smelly underarms.
The more anxious I got about it, the more I sweated and, despite the “extra strong” deodorant, I somehow always ended up with nasty marks on my pretty clothes!
(The time I wore a cream dress at my friend’s wedding in Greece was particularly mark embarrassing.)
So when the hot weather hit and sunny trips abroad got scheduled with my new man, I decided enough was enough and I’d make my life easier by getting botox.
At Look Lovely London, the receptionist informed me that the treatment did not require the numbing cream or ice pack.
In fact, it was the most painless place to have injections!
I wasn’t too fussed, since I shave, wax and besiege that area so much anyway that momentary discomfort means nothing.
Dr. Wilson first wiped the area clean and injected under my arms through a fine needle.
It was about 20 quick, superficial pricks and hardly noticeable.
She said the botox would block the nerve impulses and basically stop the sweat glands from functioning over the next week or so.
More units were required for underarms than facial anti-wrinkle injections but the effect would also last longer- up to 6 to 9 months.
Oh and the process took roughly 20 minutes and afterwards Dr. Wilson advised me not to apply anything to the area for 6 hours, or engage in strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
I left the clinic that day, got right back to work and followed her instructions…
Within a week I noticed less sweating and, by 2 weeks, I didn’t need deodorant at all!
So now I was all set for hot London days and glamorous world travel.
This has to be hands down the most convenient procedure for summer I’ve had at the Look Lovely London clinic.
It really is for anyone, who either sweats a lot and/or works and plays hard in sticky environments, or, like me, is just sick of using spray-ons over and over again.
It also maintains those sexy clothes you wear, whether a wedding dress or a cute mini, you’ll find yourself at the dry cleaner’s way less.
Finally, it keeps you confident and comfortable in the glorious sunny months! And for me that’s priceless.
So that’s all from my smooth, dry pits lovelies.
Enjoy the swelter and remember to stay sweat free.
