We figured with all these #SocialDistancing going on, we might as well spend the time we have at home practising self-care. After all, the anxiety of reading about the number of new Covid-19 cases for the day can send your skin (and your mental health) into a downward spiral after some time.
However, if you do find yourself being bored after the third online yoga class for the day, or if you had already done your multi-masking multiple times, perhaps it’s time to turn your attention to your vulva area.
Yes, your hoo-ha. The nether regions. Your lady bits.
Since you’ve already spent the money on hair removal services, why not go all the way and give that area a firming boost? Besides, the skin around the area may not be in the best condition after ripping the hair out, or subjecting it to a crazy amount of heat during IPL. The skin around the vulva area can be sensitive, but its problems are often not talked about. The same way no one talked about Brazilian waxing 10 years ago. It doesn’t matter if the reasons are #feminism or #empowerment, from a Beauty Editor’s point of view, if there’s something wrong with your skin, we find ways to fix it.
TWO L(I)PS has an entire range of products addressing specific problems like chafing, bumpiness, dullness and dehydration. However, the prospects of going through the same 11-step Korean skincare routine on our lady parts frankly doesn’t thrill us, but lying on the bed scrolling through our Instagram feed? I guess we could do that.

The TWO L(I)PS Blackout Mask is infused with nourishing ingredients to hydrate skin around the vulva. Its water-based formula is gentle on skin, so it doesn’t cause irritation even after waxing. White liquorice help brighten dull, uneven skin tone, while activated charcoal detoxes skin. The idea of sitting around without your pants can seem odd, but don’t knock it till you try it – there are productive ways to spend the 15 to 20 minutes while the mask works its magic. Why not apply a mask on your face at the same time? How about some meditation? This is some me-time which you totally deserve.
We don’t know about you, but we’ve made a list off the things we want to do after the Covid-19 pandemic is over. Among the usual stuff like never washing our hands again (kidding!), and travelling, we’ve also made some small achievable things like a facial, waxing and massage. In case you’re trying to find things to add to your list, consider the Strip Rosebud Vajuvenation, an anti-ageing facial to tighten, lift and firm your labia area. This va-cial (vag-acial?) uses ThermaO2 technology which uses a combination of radio frequency, vacuum and heat is to stimulate collagen production. Is it painful? Not at all, but the treatment requires you to be completely fuzz free, and is frankly a pretty soothing addition to your Brazilian Wax or IPL and only takes just 20 minutes.
Strip’s Rosebud Vajuvenation Treatment is available at all Strip outlets. It’s priced at $80 for first-time trial, $250 per session and $$1.600 for a package of eight sessions.
