How do I care for my skin following a waxing service?
In 24 - 48 hours following your waxing service:
- No hot baths or showers
- No saunas, steam rooms or hot tubs
- No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans)
- No strenuous exercise
- Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands
- Wear clean, loose fitting clothes
- Avoid swimming in chlorinated water
- Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other then those recommended by me.
Will it hurt?
I'd be lying if I were to say waxing was pain free, but it is just a moment. I use high quality waxes that have been designed to work efficiently and in turn reduce stress to your skin and yourself, I am highly trained and very experienced in all waxing services. It's paramount to me that your service is as comfortable as possible and I have many repeat clients that travel to me from all over the South of England. Slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly after your first wax but these symptoms usually subside over the 24-48 hours if they don't please contact me for further advice.
How often should I get me waxing done?
Depending on the area you've had waxed I recommend a waxing service every 3-4 weeks for lip, brows and chin waxing, and 4-6 weeks for intimate and body waxing.
Can I shave, epilate or use hair removal creams in between appointments?
It can take up to four treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives long lasting results, if you have hair growth returning before your next visit please call me and we can reschedule your appointment.
What causes ingrown hair and how can I reduce them?
Ingrown hairs are hairs that have grown from the folicle but turned back on themselves when they are unable to break through the skins surface. To reduce and prevent them use Ruff Stuff Daily Body Scrub during showering to keep skin hydrated and supple followed by Outback Organics Body Lotion and for persistent ingrown hairs, Outback Organics Ingrown Hair Serum daily.
