Waxing for a Smooth Summer Look

June 10, 2017

The official beginning of summer is nearly here! In fact, warm temperatures are probably already luring you out to the beach or the pool. It’s time to put on the bikini and have some fun – and ditch any unwanted hair. For many women, waxing is the best way to go.

While shaving is always an option, it has many drawbacks. It’s temporary (stubble regrows quickly), it can irritate your skin, it can cause cuts (which allows bacteria to enter), and it can cause hyperpigmentation in sensitive areas. On the other hand, waxing is a longer-lasting solution that can reduce the amount of hair growing in the treated area. The hair that does grow back is less noticeable.

If you’ve already been waxing all winter, perfect! Keep to your schedule and you should see fewer and fewer unwanted hairs. If not, don’t despair. It’s not too late!

First, make an appointment with a professional technician and discuss your options. Provide information about the products you use, your health, and other important factors so she can determine whether waxing is right for you.

If you haven’t shaved in a few weeks, make your waxing appointment right away, and don’t shave off the stubble in the meantime. Having slightly longer hair for your waxing makes the procedure more effective.

Wait until after your appointment to apply any spray tan products, which will be removed by exfoliating in the waxing process.

Make a regular schedule for waxing and stick with it. Keeping to a regular routine will ensure that hair grow-back decreases in the areas treated.

Finally, always wear sunscreen, but be extra vigilant after waxing, as your skin will be more susceptible to sunburns.
