If you want to achieve the best waxing results, make sure to prep your skin a week before the appointment. Exfoliating and moisturizing are a must! “You want the skin to be supple and not dry. It’s much less painful to wax skin that is moist as opposed to dry,” Titova explains.
- Finding the right wax: Hard wax is known to be a honey color and is peeled by the technician with her hands, while paper strips are used to remove soft wax. Although it is common that hard wax is less painful and better for the skin, sugar wax and other options can be best for you.
- Make sure your hair is long enough: “This is often a downside to waxing,” Titova says. “Hair should be at least ¼ of an inch long for wax to catch it. Many women never allow hair to grow this long, making waxing a more difficult option, especially if hair is coarse.”
- Don’t shave in between sessions: Shaving after waxing defeats the purpose of waxing because the hair grows back harder and more coarse. Constantly waxing hair makes it grow back thinner after each session.
Finally, do what is best for your body!
