We’ve all heard the waxing horror stories, and the amount of pain involved usually takes center stage. It’s enough to put off even a veteran let alone someone who has never had one before. But the good news is that there are now a number of different types of waxing products created especially for sensitive skin such as chocolate, strawberry or natural honey waxes that can help remove unwanted hair as smoothly as possible.

Waxing removes more than just unwanted hair. It also exfoliates the skin and helps your skin cells to naturally regenerate. But different skin types have different needs. So it’s important to choose wisely when selecting salons and products that will best match your specific skin type.

Choose a salon – and a technician – that is properly trained and licensed in hair removal. Ask your friends, read reviews, and if at all possible, stop by for a visit. Talk to the technician who will perform the services to get a sense of his or her knowledge as well as your level of comfort. After all, this person will be up close and personal with your skin.

Once you’ve chosen a salon and have made an appointment, be sure to discuss your skin type with your technician. Oily, sensitive or dry skin each have their own special needs, and a well-trained technician can help you choose the best products for your skin type.

Follow up care is also important for waxing services. For example, it’s best to avoid hot tubs or even warm baths for 48 hours after your wax, and depending upon which parts of your body were waxed, you may also want to avoid using deodorants and perfumes for a few days. Again, a professional skin care technician will be able to give you good advice for your specific needs.
