The 4 Golden Rules To Help You Prep And Prolong Your Wax
A Wax is understandably no woman’s favourite activity. However, there is nothing better than feeling silky smooth and groomed to perfection. Nowadays, thanks to new and improved products, professional hot and strip waxing is easier and more gentle than ever. Here at Secret Spa we have listed our professionals’ top tips to ensure you are perfectly prepped for your wax and how you can prolong the results!
- No broken skin – before booking a wax make sure you have no irritation or broken skin on the area you are getting waxed. If you do have any areas of skin that are distressed in any way, wait until they are fully healed before booking your treatment.
- Make sure there’s something to wax – when you’re planning a wax bare in mind that the less hair you have the less effective it will be! Ideally, you should not book an appointment unless you have at least ¼ inch of hair which for most women is 2/3 weeks growth time.
- Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate – exfoliation is key to a good wax and ideally should be done on the day of your appointment. Using your favourite body scrub, bath sponge or exfoliating mitt loosen up dead skin cells and lift trapped hairs. Here at Secret Spa we fully recommend the St Ives Invigorating Apricot Body Scrub which is great for relieving ingrown hairs and smells amazing.
- The key to staying smooth- the only way to be sure to prolong your results is to think long term. With regular waxing sessions your hair becomes more sparse and the growth rate decreases. If you are planning to wax again within the near future then resist shaving as hair will grow back stubbly and all your progress will be wasted!
