Waxing is an extremely effective form of hair removal and can be used on virtually any part of the body.
It is important to take care of and prepare the area that is being waxed. Follow these tips to ensure a quick appointment that is a little less painful.
Trim the hair before your appointment. Longer hair can be more painful to wax.
Ensure your hair is at least ¼ to ½ inch long.
Exfoliate the waxing area 24-48 hours before your appointment. This will keep the skin soft and smoother and prevent ingrown hairs.
Bath or shower on the day of your appointment to open up follicles, allowing for easier hair removal.
Do not apply any deodorants, make-up, lotions, soaps, powders, perfumes, or self-tanning products to the area to be waxed.
For the first 24 hours after a waxing service, avoid the following to prevent irritating the skin:
Brazilian, no sexual activity
Exfoliating 2 days after, then every other day
Perspiration and friction on the waxed area
Saunas and steam rooms
Exercise, gyms, and swimming
