15 Aug The Best Way To Prepare For Waxing
Preparing for waxing at a waxing salon is a pretty simple process. If you’re interested in waxing you probably understand already that involves utilization of a soft wax product that is heated up and applied to the skin in the area where you want hair removed. The product is then quickly pulled from the skin, pulling the trapped hair out with it. This produces a far better result than shaving due to the fact that it pulls the entire hair out including the root. This means that it will take far longer period of time for the hair to grow back and begin to show at the skin surface. Shaving only cuts hair off the surface, which means it will begin to show again within only a few hours, producing the razor stubble look that is inevitable. You’ll need to shave every few days in order to remain smooth looking, as opposed to waxing which generally only has to be done once a month in order to receive the same results. When people talk about waxing they’re generally talking about the fact that the procedure is far superior to just about every other hair removal method with regards to how long it lasts vs. the amount of damage that is done to your skin. Shaving takes a toll on your skin by continually irritating it, ultimately making you look older before your time. The waxing processes far easier on your skin, even though it does produce a small amount of pain. People were unfamiliar with waxing will generally overstate the amount of pain is felt in an attempt to be funny. Yes it does hurt a little bit, but a good quality wax combined with a good procedure on the part of the salon will minimize the amount of pain to being very manageable. There are certain things that you can do to both manage the amount of pain that is felt during the procedure as well as getting the best result possible.
Take an ibuprofen about an hour before your wax. This will reduce the amount of pain and sensitivity that is felt temporarily. Do not take anything that involves a blood thinner as this can have a negative effect on the waxing. Avoid dermabrasions or peels of any kind previous to your wax in session, as well as avoiding tanning or straight and within 24 hours of your appointment. Keep your skin hydrated as much as possible in order to prevent the wax from sticking to dry skin. Avoid caffeine and alcohol for 24 hours before your waxes these can make it feel more painful. Exfoliate your skin previous to your appointment using a natural body scrub. Probably the most important thing you can do is to wait around three or four weeks in between waxes in order to get the best result with the least amount of pain. You want your hair to be about ¼ inch long during your wax. This will allow for the wax to effectively trap the hair in order to produce a better result, and longer hair is more painful to remove. Follow these steps to get the best waxing results you can get, and you probably won’t feel much of all.
