    To Wax or Not to Wax?

    Waxing can be used for removing hair from virtually any part of the body. It is most commonly used for removing hair on the arms, legs, underarms and bikini line. Other parts of body where waxing is frequently used for hair-removal are face, including upper lips, lower lips, eyebrows and chin, and the chest and back.

    The benefits of waxing are: Smooth, Silky Skin that Lasts - Waxing removes hair from the root, so it takes a longer time for hair to grow again, anywhere from 3-8 weeks, depending on the individual speed of hair growth. This means your hair free, smooth skin lasts much longer and you can go for that holiday on the beach and bask in the glory of your enviably smooth and glowing skin without having to worry about body hair showing up in the meantime.

    No skin damage - In contrast to other methods of hair removal like hair removing creams and shaving, waxing does not cause cuts, pigmentation or badly smelling skin. No harsh chemicals are present in wax, so, the skin is saved from their damaging effect.

    Fine and softer body hair - The hair that grows after waxing is of a finer and softer variety, not rough and hard as shaving and waxing does not cause an ugly stubbly as it does a day or so after shaving.

    Waxing is a double function of hair removal and exfoliation - It leaves the skin soft, smooth and rejuvenated because it also removes a layer of dead cells from the surface of the skin.

    Waxing diminishes hair growth and after repeated sessions of waxing, you will notice much sparser hair growth, and hair growth may even stop eventually.

    Road cycling is an exhilarating way to challenge yourself and get fitYou know what they say about riding a bike once youve learned you never forget. So if you enjoyed zooming down hills when you were younger (and struggling up them!) road cycling may be the ideal sport for you.

    As the name suggests, road cycling involves riding exclusively on roads, and the aim is to build up your speed and the distance you can cover.

    Its a very efficient way to get fit and lose weight as its one of the few sports that you can sustain for two to four hours. Like running, it gets you out in the fresh air, but it is low impact and places less strain on your joints.

    Road bikes are designed for racing. They have a lightweight frame, narrow tyres and rounded handlebars so that you sit forward in an aerodynamic position. You can pay anything from 150 to 5000 plus. Cheaper bikes are made from steel or aluminium, while the more expensive are carbon fibre or titanium, which is amazingly strong and light.

    If you decide to take up the sport seriously, look for a well-known brand and expect to pay around 600. Getting the right size is important, so ask your local bike shop for advice. Your legs should be almost straight when they are on the pedal at bottom of the turn.

    There are two types of pedals on road bikes. Platform pedals are like those on a traditional bicycle and you will need to add toe clips. Modern clipless pedals will need special shoes with cleats on them that fix your foot to the pedals.

    The saddle of a road bicycle is normally very narrow and can be uncomfortable, so you may want to get a gel cover or wear padded shorts.

    When youre out on the roads, safety has to be your top priority. A helmet is a must, as is brightly coloured clothing.

    Ride your bike as if you were driving a car and obey traffic laws. Take a tool kit with you a spare inner tube, tyre levers, puncture repair kit, pump and Allen keys are essential. Its also sensible to carry your address and phone number in

    case of an accident.

    Think of road cycling as a long-term sport. It will take you a few weeks to get used to your bike and build up your speed and stamina. Joining a club is a great way to keep motivated. Youll find a directory of over 1500 clubs at ranging from informal groups who ride for pleasure to competitive racing teams.

    So what are you waiting for get on your bike!
