-For best results, stop shaving (removing hair) for 2 full weeks before your appointment exfoliate the night before your appointment.

More Before Care Tips

1. Hair Length: Ensure that the hair you want to wax is long enough for the wax to grip. Ideally, it should be at least a quarter of an inch (about 6mm) long. Avoid shaving for at least two to three weeks before your waxing appointment.

2. Exfoliation: Gently exfoliate the skin a day or two before your waxing appointment. This helps remove dead skin cells and can prevent ingrown hairs.

3. Clean Skin: On the day of your waxing session, make sure your skin is clean and free from oils, lotions, or makeup. Avoid applying any products to the area being waxed.

4. Pain Management: If you're concerned about pain, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever, like ibuprofen, about 30 minutes before your appointment. This can help reduce discomfort.

5. Hydration:Stay well-hydrated in the days leading up to your waxing appointment. Hydrated skin tends to be more resilient and less prone to irritation.

6. Sun Exposure: Avoid excessive sun exposure or tanning, both natural and artificial, in the days leading up to your appointment. Sunburned or tanned skin can be more sensitive and prone to irritation during waxing.

7. Medical Conditions and Medications: Inform your waxing professional of any medical conditions, allergies, or medications you are taking. Some medications, like retinoids or certain antibiotics, can make your skin more sensitive or prone to adverse reactions during waxing.

8. Time of the Month: If you're getting a bikini or Brazilian wax, be aware that you may be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle. It's not uncommon to experience more discomfort during this time.

9. Relaxation: Try to stay relaxed and calm before your appointment. Stress and tension can make the experience more uncomfortable, so take some deep breaths and prepare for a positive experience.

10. Communicate with Your Waxing Professional: When you arrive at your appointment, communicate openly with your waxing professional. Let them know if you have any specific concerns or preferences, such as the wax type you prefer.

More After Care Tips

1. Avoid Sun Exposure: Stay out of direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least 24 to 48 hours after waxing. Your skin is more sensitive and prone to sunburn during this time.

2. Loose Clothing: Wear loose-fitting, breathable clothing to prevent friction and irritation on the waxed areas. Avoid tight jeans, leggings, or synthetic fabrics.

3. Skip Hot Baths and Showers: For the first 24 hours post-wax, opt for lukewarm or cool showers instead of hot ones. Hot water can irritate freshly waxed skin.

4. No Swimming or Saunas: Avoid swimming pools, hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms for at least 24 hours after waxing. Chlorine and bacteria in pools and hot tubs can irritate your skin.

5. Exfoliation: Begin gentle exfoliation 2-3 days after waxing to help prevent ingrown hairs. Use a soft exfoliating glove or a mild scrub, but avoid harsh or abrasive products.

6. Moisturize: Keep your skin well-hydrated by using a fragrance-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer. Avoid heavy lotions that may clog pores.

7. No Touching: Refrain from touching the waxed areas with unwashed hands to prevent introducing bacteria and causing irritation.

8. Avoid Makeup and Perfumes: If you've had facial waxing, avoid applying makeup and perfumes to the waxed area for 24 hours to minimize the risk of clogged pores.

9. Say No to Deodorants: After underarm waxing, avoid using deodorant for 24 hours to prevent skin irritation.

10. Patience: Give your skin time to recover. Redness and minor bumps are normal and should subside within a day or two. However, if you experience severe redness, itching, or unusual irritation, consult your waxing professional or a dermatologist.

11. Regular Waxing: To prolong smooth skin, consider a regular waxing schedule, usually every 3-6 weeks. Over time, this can lead to finer hair regrowth.
