Before Waxing

  • Your hair needs to be at least 1/2 cm long for me to wax successfully. Come and see me every 4-6 weeks and no tweezing, shaving or hair removal creams between appointments, please.

  • avoid using chemical exfoliant (AHA or BHA products) 48 hours prior to waxing.

  • No sunbathing, sun beds or heat treatments for 24hts beforehand.

  • Do not use bath oils or apply heavy body lotions on the day of your treatment.

 

After waxing

  • It is quite normal for your skin to look and feel a little irritated immediately after waxing, especially if this is your first treatment. this will subside over the next day or so, but please get in touch if you have any questions.

  • Keep your freshly waxed skin clean and avoid heat and friction for 24-48 hours.

  • Only take cool baths or showers during this time.

  • No vigorous exercise, sport, swimming or gym work.

  • Avoid touching, scratching or rubbing the treated area.

  • No sexual activity immediately after intimate waxing.

  • No sunbathing, or self tanning products until all redness has gone.

  • Wear clean, loose- fitting clothing for your comfort.

  • Apply a soothing lotion to calm and protect the waxed skin. Ensure you use a sunscreen on any exposed areas.

  • Starting a few days after your treatment, use a body scrub, brush or mitt to gently exfoliate your skin 3-4 times a week. Couple with a daily moisturising lotion to help prevent ingrown hairs.
