15 Aug Pre-Wax, Do These Things
Preparing for waxing is something that you don’t want to take very seriously in order to assure that you get the best procedure possible as well as feeling the least amount of pain. Everyone was interested in waxing will generally understand that there’s going to be pain involved, and a majority of people who swear by waxing as the superior hair removal method will attest to the fact that the pain the feel is worth the result. The wax is far better than shaving, because even though shaving doesn’t have any pain involved unless you cut yourself, it must be done so regularly in order to avoid razor stubble that it stresses your skin out and causes you to look older far before your time. Because waxing doesn’t need to be done very often the amount of wear and tear on your skin is far less, allowing your skin to actually benefit from the process and remain younger looking. Waxing itself involves spreading a heated wax onto your skin and allowing it to dry enough to trap the hairs that it is spread over. When it is pulled off, it pulls the hair out in its entirety including the root. This means that instead of simply cutting hair off at the skin surface at which point you see it growing back within only hours, you have removed the entirety of the hair. The process of growing back is going to take weeks instead of hours and ultimately you’re going to remain smooth and hairfree for the entire period of time. While the process does have pain involved, the use of good quality waxing products as well as a good technique on the salon’s part will reduce the amount of pain that you feel.
In order to prepare for your waxing you’re going to want to take a few steps. First and foremost is to take an ibuprofen about an hour before the appointment. Avoid other painkillers as they may contain blood thinners which can have a negative effect on the procedure. Avoid tanning were spray tanning for a few days before your procedure, and also avoid dermabrasions or any kind of peel on the area that is going to be waxed. If you’re taking any kind of medication were using any skin products make sure that you notify the person who is doing your waxing as they can all have negative effects. Avoid caffeine and alcohol for 24 hours before your wax because they can make it feel more painful as well. Always Exfoliate your skin using a natural body scrub beforehand, and take care to make sure that you are fully hydrated and were to avoid skin lift. This is essentially the waxed sticking more to dry skin than moisturized skin and can cause irritation. The wait time in between waxes is probably the most important thing that you can do in order to achieve the best results. You want to wait about three or four weeks in between waxes simply because longer hair is more painful to remove and you still want to get at least ¼ inch of hair in order for the wax to fully bond to it and have a good removal process. Take the steps and your waxing should produce great results.
