Here are our top tips to get the best from your waxing appointment.
First off, ensure a minimum of 4 weeks growth, if your hair is too short the hair will not be removed effectively, therefore your therapist may not be able to carry out the service and you could be charged!
A week before your appointment, exfoliate to remove dead skin cells, dry skin and prevent ingrown hairs.
Always look after your skin and keep it hydrated by moisturizing daily. This will keep your skin supple and prevent your skin becoming dry, dry skin can cause the wax to adhere to the skin resulting in skin irritation, redness and on rare occasions can result in grazing.
Do Not Moisturize ON WAXING DAY!
On waxing day, ensure your skin is showered and wash away any moisturizing butters and oils, do not apply any moisturizers post shower as it acts as a barrier and can prevent your hairs being removed effectively.
Stay away from tanning beds on waxing day as this can leave the skin sensitive and prone to irritation.
Wear loose fitting clothing to allow your skin to breathe and avoid irritation.
Fake Tanners beware!!! If you are a regular fake tanner, waxing will remove your tan or will leave you patchy, it is not advisable to tan pre appointment or for 48 hrs post appointment.
In addition to the advice above.
Arrive at your appointment wearing loose, cotton underwear and freshly cleansed. If this is not possible, please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to freshen up, your therapist doesn't want to see a dirty fairy!
Make sure you tell your therapist of medication or health conditions.
There are certain conditions and medications that can interact with some treatments, You may need to a consult your GP and bring a note to your first appointment for insurance purposes with a number of serious conditions or post cancer treatment.
