WAXING

Waxing is a process of hair removal that strips hair from the root using a sticky substance, like wax, to adhere to body hair, and then this covering is removed, pulling out hair from the follicles at the same time. Waxing is an alternative to shaving, electrolysis, and creams. However, shaving and creams only last three days, and electrolysis is painful.

You will see the most benefits from waxing when you wax about two to five weeks apart. For the legs, you need to wax every three to five weeks; for the face, bikini line, and underarms waxing every two to three weeks is recommended.

Typically waxing lasts about three to four weeks. You can go in for more waxing when the hair is at least 1/3 inches long. If you are planning on waxing, avoid shaving or any other hair removal treatment to avoid itchiness, ingrown hairs, or irritation.

Waxing does remove the entire hair, including the root, from the follicle. After waxing, your skin naturally hardens and thickens over the waxed area. Therefore, it is important to keep that area moistened. Gently exfoliate in waxed areas for about two days after the treatment and continue to exfoliate and moisturize one to two times a week.
