So it’s time for yet another beauty secret to be unveiled. This pick is all about hair removal. As someone with Arab ancestry, something passed down through the generations is the hairy factor. I must admit I am not overly hairy but the ever too often waxing; threading, shaving combo has been a part of my life for a while. What I didn’t know is that when the women of Saudi remove their unwanted hair they do it PERMANENTLY. So, this is where my 4th pick comes; LASER HAIR REMOVAL. It is all the rage here and with competing clinics buying for the large client base the treatments are the latest and most affordable found in the GCC. With many clinics offering full service hair removal, if you want it gone its gone!
rather that living in the Kingdom it is probably the most taboo issue to talk about. Not only was this blog brilliantly written it was written by a Saudi; first hand account of the culture. Turns out to be very refreshing, reading about issues most expats are often bewildered about. I kept the blog bookmarked
in my favorites’ folder and passed it on to all my expat girlfriends who, just like I were flabbergasted at what they found out. Please note I kept this very secret, never read it at work and only spoke about it to my expat friends and never local friends in fear of being somewhat ostracized.
