Waxing Tips
To get the most out of your wax, follow these guidelines:


* Hair must be at least ¼ inch long.


* If you are feeling sensitive, take 2 Aleve, 1 hour before your appointment.


* No shaving between waxing appointments. Shaving will make your wax more painful and cause broken hairs, which will leave the skin feeling prickly.


* No direct sunlight or extremely hot water on the area 24 hours post wax. If you’ve done facial waxing it is important to wear sunblock.


* No waxing if you are taking or using any medication that will thin the skin, such as Accutane or Retin-A.


* The skin is more sensitive the week before your menstrual cycle, so waxing may feel more painful.


* Plan on being pink in the freshly waxed area. For some people, mild inflammation will go away quickly and others might need 12-24 hours.


* Exfoliate between waxing appointments to avoid ingrown hairs.


* No picking!
