The Pink Tax- The Cost of Being a Female Consumer

The pink tax is one that only about half of the population is subject to. And they probably aren’t even aware of it. Are you paying the pink tax?

The pink tax refers to the extra amount women are charged for certain products or services. Things like dry cleaning, personal care products, and vehicle maintenance. So not only do women make less but they pay more. Women also live longer so they actually need more money for retirement. It’s a load of crap.

There has been a lot of research on the pink tax that found that overall, women were paying more than men 42% of the time. How much more?  About $1,351 more a year in extra costs. Yup – that’s $1,351 that can’t go into her retirement fund.

Seven things to avoid after getting a Brazilian wax, from sex to working out

I hate having hair on my vagina. In the winter, having hair down there doesn’t bother me. However, I love traveling and being active outside when it’s warm out, and pubic hair doesn’t fit into that equation. Although I did my share of research on Brazilian waxes, I was never convinced that someone ripping the hair out of my vagina was worth it. I decided to stick with shaving because it was easy, cost-efficient, and relatively pain-free (with the exception of razor bumps and ingrown hairs that I learned to combat over the years).

Shaving Cream Dyed Easter Eggs

When I saw the whole shaving cream Easter Eggs things that’s popped up, I was like, “That is my kind of Easter egg dying!” No cups of dyed vinegar, begging to be spilled. No fighting over who gets to put their egg in the teal cup. No egg wobbling precariously on the metal hook before splashing into said dyed vinegar. No swear words. No tears. You know, the hallmarks of my “fun holiday activities.”

11 Little Things You Should Never Do Before Or After Shaving

We all know the things to avoid while shaving, like going against the grain (ouch) or shaving dry skin (ouch again). But what about the things to avoid before or after shaving? What should you never do in the lead up, and what should you stay away from once your skin is silky smooth?

Well, turns out there are several little pre- and post-shave habits that can cause a few problems. (Think along the lines of razor bumps, irritation, and maybe even infections.) It is pretty easy, however, to do things the right way and keep your skin feeling great. It just takes a little planning.

"Prepping your skin before shaving is so important," says Lisa Dolan, licensed esthetician and founder of Lark Skincare. "Before you start shaving, you want to have a clean slate so be sure to always use a great exfoliating scrub ...  It is vital to slough off dead skin cells." She then recommends applying a shave cream or oil, and following up the whole process with a great moisturizer. (Preferably one that doesn't contain water.)

Those are the things you should do. Now on to the things you shouldn't. If you shave your legs, bikini line, armpits (or anywhere else), read on for things you should never ever do before or after shaving.
