Even though hair removal is one of the most widely researched topics, there’s still so much that remains a mystery about the hair removal practices. Women worldwide agree that nothing beats the feeling of getting unwanted hair waxed; the silky-smooth skin makes you want to flaunt it with invincible confidence!
Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned client or a first-timer, waxing. like various other beauty procedures, has some real rules about prep and post-wax maintenance.
But don’t worry; we've compiled a list of tips, busted a few myths, and penned down expert opinions and recommendations about waxing in detail to make your waxing worthwhile and life easy!
#1 Length Of The Hair Is Key
Experts suggest that the length of your body hair should ideally be at least 1/8th of an inch to have an amazing waxing experience. Either trim the growth or shave way in advance so that they reach the standard length for your appointment date.
#2 Avoid Retinol
A common habit of clients and some salons as well is to use retinol-based products before waxing. While we all are well aware of retinol's skin-smoothing abilities and the wonders it inflicts on reviving fine lines, minimizing pores, treating acne, and reducing wrinkles, the potent formula can make the skin sensitive and prone to irritation or redness. This is why experts strictly suggest not using it near or during your waxing sessions.
#3 Exfoliate And Moisturize Regularly
Taking the right steps to care about the skin before and after getting waxed has a tremendous impact on the results attained each time. Always choose a gentle exfoliate to remove the dead skin and prevent ingrown hair that causes the unwanted pesky bump.
#4 Keep Yourself Hydrated
A healthy, hydrated skin, especially in winters or if you generally have dry skin type, it can cause the hair to break during the waxing procedure or cause burns. Breakage also results in hair growing back faster and thicker.
#5 Never Forget To Use SPF
As your skin may be extra sensitive after you get waxing done, always remember to lather it up with some top-notch sunscreen. Although you should be using SPF lotions religiously, even during regular days, be extra alert after getting waxed as skin is prone to redness, irritation and can be vulnerable to burning, even during winters.
#6 Leave It To The Experts
While a lot of people opt for DIY at-home waxing kits, professionals warn against it. This is because waxing if handled by untrained staff, can cause severe burns and cause skin damage — people have reported removing up to two layers of skin along with the hair! Yikes!
