What Are Your Best Tips for Waxing At Home?
Wax on, wax off! Easier said than done, right? Satin Smooth is currently offering 25% off their entire depilitary and hair removal range on i-glamour so we thought we’d compile a list of our best tips for waxing at home to ensure you are a smooth operator this summer.
The Pre-Wax Shower
A cool shower before ensures your body temperature will be just right for home waxing. If you’re hot and sweaty, wax won’t stick and if you’re too cold, the wax can’t be removed properly. It’s all a bit Goldilocks really!
Select The Right Wax Type
Hard wax or hot wax is recommended for facial, underarm and bikini waxing as the skin is thinner and more sensitive around these areas. Strip wax has a honey-like consistency so is ideal for spreading a very thin layer over larger areas such as legs, arms, back and chest.
Use The Right Technique
One of our crucial waxing tips is making sure the area is cleaned first with a cleansing wipe such as BeautyPRO Fast Wipes Pre-Wax Treatment or Satin Smooth Satin Cleanser. Be sure to thoroughly dry the area before starting. Next, apply a small amount of wax at a time to ensure the wax doesn’t dry out and make removal painful. Then, ensure skin is pulled tight before removing the wax. Home waxing doesn’t have to be painful!
Reduce Post-Waxing Redness and Sensitivity
One of the best waxing tips is to find the wax that suits your specific skin and hair type. One wax does not suit everyone. Satin Smooth offer’s a complete range of waxes formulated to suit different skin and hair needs.
Aftercare Tips for Home Waxing
Avoid hot showers; keep the water cool. Make sure clothing isn’t too tight against the skin e.g. tight jeans after a leg wax is a no go! Do not use any perfumed shower gels or products on the skin for at least 12 hours, including deodorant. Why? Because the pores are open and it will sting the area.
Select The Right Waxing System For Your Needs
If you’re a bit of a professional at waxing at home, then by all means go for professional products such as Satin Smooth Double Wax Heater with separate waxing cans or the BeautyPRO 1000cc Wax Heater. If you’re a quick, no fuss home waxer for smaller areas then try a microwaveable kit such as the Satin Smooth Cream N Honey Microwaveable Waxing Kit.
