Waxing is a popular hair removal choice as it provides smooth, long-lasting results. To make sure you achieve the outcome you are seeking from your next wax appointment, keep the following tips in mind.
Pay Attention to Skincare
Be gentle with your skin in the days leading up to your wax appointment. For example, while it is a good idea to moisturize, steer clear of products with retinol or alpha-hydroxy acids. Avoiding these products for at least a week before an appointment is best, as they can increase skin sensitivity.
And exfoliating is an important step, too. Exfoliating a day or two prior to a wax appointment can help to wash away dead skin cells. This preparation can be beneficial if you are preparing for a facial wax appointment or are seeking hair removal from your underarms or bikini line.
Talk to Your Esthetician
Many are self-conscious when they show up for their first wax appointment. They may be nervous about having hair removed from their bikini line or be unsure how they want their eyebrows shaped. Remember that your esthetician is a professional and is happy to walk you through the process. If you’d like, they can share their thoughts on how much or how little hair to remove.
Keep It Up
And lastly, for best results, you will want to keep regular appointments. This includes maintaining a waxing schedule during the winter months. When you are on a schedule, hair removal will become easier and will be required less frequently as time passes. Then, you aren’t starting from scratch come bikini season next year.
