Summer equals Waxing!!

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Summer has arrived and we are baring more skin this equals waxing!! We want to make sure you are prepping your skin correctly and offer a few helpful hints.

Before a wax treatment avoid using harsh exfoliants, chemical peels, and any skin products that have Alpha Hydroxy Acid for 3 to 5 days prior to your appointment.  Although a gentle exfoliating product such as the Abella Exfoliating Cleanser can be used 48 hours prior to your treatment to remove dead skin cells that can clog and grip your hair follicles. After your wax use a gentle cleanser like the Dual Cleanser to keep area clean and non-irritated.

After your wax we suggest you wait 48 hours before sun exposure and recommend wearing the ColorShade SPF 30+ or the SolarShade SPF 45. After waxing your skin is sensitive and more prone to sun damage and can tan unevenly.

If you apply self tanners, wax first then wait about 24 hours to apply your self-tanner to ensure a streak free result.
