Looks a bit futuristic for me but if you are a super fan of Star wars, and Lupita Nyong’o who can be seen in Star Wars: Episode VII, I am sure you will do what you can to get your hands on it.

Microwaving Your Armpits

Women are doing what? Microwaving their armpits!

microwaving under arms

Image Source www.morethanheels.com

Really! Well yes, according to an article on Byrdie.com, first published in Marie Claire @ www.marieclaire.com

I have heard a lot of crazy things but this by far is too much for me, microwaving your under arms.

It is not an actual microwave but a laser gun–like device, by the medical company Miramar Labs.

“It's the same wavelength, but the delivery method, depth of penetration or range, and safety profile are totally different,” Dr. Snehal P. Amin, a board-certified dermatologic surgeon, told Marie Claire.

The device heats up the levels deep under your skin, where the hair root and sweat glands are located and subsequently destroys them. This is the only FDA-approved device of its kind, and the company has reported over 40,000 treatments this far.

Microwaving my armpits, need to think about that one for a minute, but with over 40,000 treatments I am sure that there are beauty crazed women that will invest in it.

But you know what they say, “different strokes for different folk” Would you microwave your armpits?

Scarfs

While the weather is still sunny accessorize with a scarf that is not so thick and heavy, so that it does not leave you sweating but still keeps you warm on cooler days.

Scarfs are a perfect way to jazz up a drab outfit as it adds a pop of colour to your outfit.

Hats

A hat makes for a great accessory no matter the season but are more prominent during autumn. While the weather is still hot and sunny you can wear it to protect your hair from sun damage or to hide a bad hair day.

The romper or playsuit, super versatile and easy to wear, go for a relaxed day look paired with sneakers or sandals and a super sexy look with killer heels for night time.

90’s fashion staple the Dungarees are back and everyone is wearing them. Try out the classic stonewash denim or be bold and go for a white dungaree pair it with printed or plain t-shirts in crop or long styles.
