Moisturize in the days before you wax. Begin by taking a warm shower and scrub your skin lightly with a gentle body scrub. The scrub will help for the hairs to become softer and make the experience more comfortable. The ideal hair length for waxing is about half an inch. If shorter than that all the hairs will not be removed and will cause irritation or redness. If you are waxing any sensitive areas we recommend that you take any pain relievers at least 30 mins before treatment. Avoid any type of caffeine, it’s a skin stimulant so it will make your nerves
How long does it last?
Depending on how fast your hair grows, a wax can last anywhere from three to six weeks. Some people think the hair grows back finer or softer – this is because waxing removes hair at the root and there’s no stubble. Plus, all hair grows at a different rate so when your hair grows back there appears to be less of it at once, and it seems softer.
Two different waxes
Deciding which type of wax is best for you depends on the area being waxed and the density of the hair. Soft wax is better used to remove fine hair in areas such as face, arms, legs, chest, and back. Hard wax removes course hair more efficiently than fine hair. Hard wax only adheres to only the hair itself – not to your skin – lowering the possibility of redness and inflammation, whereas soft wax must adhere to the hair and skin to be removed with the fabric strip, leaving slightly more sensitivity in the area.
Does it Hurt?
We need to remember that everyone is different and we all have different reactions to the same experience. Some people are prone to be more sensitive than others.
Avoid wearing any tight clothing. After waxing you’ll want to avoid anything that can cause further skin irritation, like sunbathing, tanning and extreme temperatures like hot tubs or even ice packs.
