Waxing is the process by which the entire hair is removed from your body using a melted wax product as the removal tool. This melted wax is spread over the area where hair is to be removed and then pulled off in a quick motion against the direction of hair growth. There is pain involved in that hair is being pulled from your skin, but this is the best method of removal of hair with regards to creating larger timeframes in between the need for the process to be redone. Naturally, there are certain things that you can do in order to prepare your skin for the waxing process that will provide a better result and a less painful procedure.

 

The first and most important thing for you to do is to allow your hair to grow in at least 2 weeks between waxes. This is because you are going to want to have at least 1/4 inch of hair visible at the skin surface in order to provide enough gripping for the wax to remove the hair completely. If enough time is not allowed to go by in between waxes then there will not be enough hair visible at the skin surface in order to fully trap the follicle and remove it completely. This will mean far less hair will be removed by the wax itself and will need to be individually clocked in order to achieve the smooth look. With regards to pain, you are going to want to wait to a time when your skin is less sensitive in order to reduce the amount of pain that is felt by the waxing itself. Best time to wax is about a week after your menstrual cycle and the worst time is during the cycle itself. You also won’t want to wax after you have spent any kind of significant amounts of time outside due to the fact that sunburned or irritated skin will be more painful. Taking ibuprofen the morning of your procedure in order to reduce the amount of pain that is felt. Don’t wax before a special occasion because you don’t know exactly how your skin will react to the procedure if it is your first time. If you have used the salon in the past and they’re using the same ingredients as you have already had experience with then this rule won’t apply to the same degree. Make sure that you have a skin Patch allergy test before you consider waxing in order to find out if you are allergic to anything specific. On the morning of your wax exfoliate your skin and apply moisturizers as well as taking a warm bath. Wear loose clothes that morning and if you have been doing anything that can irritate your skin don’t be waxed in that area. Make sure you tell your waxing technician if there are any moles and skin tags in the area that you are being waxed so as to take extra care not to tear them off.
