Waxing is removal of unwanted hair. Though the result of the process is pleasing, the experience may not be very pleasant. Mentioned below are few tips that will help you clear all your doubts about waxing.
Prepare yourself for waxing by following a dos and don’ts.
Let’s talk about the things that you should not do while preparing yourself for waxing.
- Do not shave
Shaving might feel less or least painful than waxing, but it is better to let your hair grow at least 3 – 4 weeks before waxing. This will make the process easier than earlier since you will get 1/4-inch-long hair on which the wax can hold during the process.
- Do not go for wax treatment around your periods
Around periods, the skin is more sensitive and during the period of sensitivity, it is not an ideal decision to wax your skin. If you want to know more about waxing session tips, visit us at https://www.waxcenter.com/ca-burbank. We offer excellent service and tips that you might need.
- Don’t have sex
Having sex before waxing makes your skin more prone to infection. Experts suggest restraining from sex at least 48 hours before waxing.
- Never ever get drunk before your waxing session
Enjoy your whole day by getting drunk after your wax session but just don’t try it beforehand. Consumption of alcohol thins your blood and having more than one drink makes your skin sensitive and you know that sensitive skin is not good for waxing.
- Do not exfoliate your skin post your wax
Waxing itself is an irritating process, and don’t irritate your skin anymore by removing the dead skin cells right away. Give your skin some time to recover before exfoliation.
- The same applies to pre-wax sessions
Exfoliation of your skin before waxing prevents bumps and ingrown hair.
- Say no to tight clothes
Your skin is also more sensitive after waxing, hence it’s better to give your skin some air. Avoid skin fit clothes, better if you go in a dress or a loose-fitting pant.
Now let’s have a look at the dos
- Check yourself
Check your skin before you go for your appointment. If you have broken skin or inflammation, make sure you allow it to heal completely before your waxing session. Moreover, if you have moles or beauty mark remembers to point them out to your therapist.
- Light exfoliation
Light or mild exfoliation of skin a day or two before your appointment can do miracles. It will help the wax to grab the hair, not your skin. Remember hard scrubbing can make the skin sensitive and increase pain.
Keep your skin well moisturized it will help to release more easily. However, moisturizing skin on the day of waxing can coat the hair and interfere with the process of waxing.
- Take a break from Retin-A cream
Retin-A creams is amazing for fine lines, acne and uneven pigmentation but leaves the skin susceptible to injuries. So, it is better to avoid using it before waxing.
