Waxing Tips

Waxing at home can be real messy and painful if not done in the proper way. Getting rid of those unwanted hairs may be easier than you think. Follow these simple tips and you will be an expert in no time.

  • First clean skin and the important tip is to apply oil before starting. This will help prevent wax from sticking.

  • Test the temperature of the wax on your inside wrist. The consistency should be like honey.

  • Apply wax in an even thickness with slightly rounded fuller edges.

  • Always apply wax against the direction of hair growth, then before wax sets, redirect in the direction of hair. This helps manipulate the hair into the wax.

  • Do not leave wax on too long-it should be soft, not tacky. If it becomes dry and brittle, reapply over the area to allow for a smooth removal.

  • To remove wax, flick the lower part of the wax strip upwards and pull off against the direction. When you pull on the wax, pull parallel and low to the body. Never pull straight up.

  • Immediately after removing a strip of wax, gentle rubbing or hand pressure will soothe the area.

  • To complete the treatment, apply a light lotion or oil to the skin.

  • Never wax sunburned skin-it has a tendency to come right off.

  • It is recommended you don't wax three days prior to and during the first three days of your menstrual cycle because your skin is more sensitive then.

  • For bikini waxing, trim long hair and it will be a more comfortable procedure (less hair to pull).
