HERE'S A FEW TIPS TO HELP AVOID RASHES, SPOTS, INGROWN HAIRS. LOOKING AFTER YOUR SKIN BETWEEN APPOINTMENTS IMPROVES YOUR RESULTS AND REDUCES THE CHANCES OF ANY REACTIONS.
KEEP IT COOL
This is extremely important; waxed skin is prone to infection due to bacteria entering the skin, Avoid sunbeds, hot showers, swimming, exercise and hot tubs for 24 hours.
Steer clear of tight clothing, sex, rubbing or scratching the waxed area; your skin will be more sensitive than usual and avoiding friction will help prevent bacteria entering the pores.
After 48 hours and then twice weekly between appointments, exfoliate the area with a grainy scrub or mitts. We highly recommend Ruff Stuff Daily Body Scrub which is a 100% natural body scrub packed full of lauric acid meaning it's anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and therefore perfect for waxed skin. Just ask at your next appointment!
Your skin needs to be kept soft and hydrated in order to avoid ingrown hairs and dry skin. Baby oil or a good quality moisturiser will help keep the skin in good condition.
BIN THE RAZOR
To prevent prickly re-growth and make your next treatment as comfortable as possible it's really important to avoid shaving between waxes.
