Give Your Legs a Little Love

There’s a great big elephant in the room, right? Why is Mid-East Foods talking about legs and love? Well, we wanted to give the ladies a little something for Valentines. Mid-East is not all about groceries; we carry a wide range of houseware and beauty products imported from the Middle East and other parts of the world.

Ok, ladies, let’s get real.

Hair removal is an annoyance. It takes time; it’s costly; and it’s painful. It can also be an inconvenience. Don't fall for any claims that tell you otherwise. Shaving is as close as you can get to pain-free but not a lasting solution. And is it really pain-free? It can leave you with cuts and scabs, and skin that’s too irritated to have the razor run over it again a couple of days later. Pain and no gain is not the way to go.

If it’s going to hurt or in the least annoy us, how can we make smooth skin last longer? Learn about the different hair removal options to figure out what works best for you or take a short-cut with us to learn about something that really works. If you’re willing to trade off a monthly visit to the spa for a private do-it-yourself option (think of the money you’ll save), then natural sugar waxing is for you.
