Do’s & Dont’s of Waxing

Exfoliating is recommended at least 3 times a week
Do exfoliate the skin right before waxing
Do let your wax technician know if you are taking any medication that can affect your waxing results, such as blood thinners, Retin-A or Acutane (or similar products)
If you are using topical acne or skin lighting products, DO stop using the product a week before your waxing service if you are going to wax that area
Do get our Ingrown-X-It solution and exfoliating mitts if you get ingrowns
Do take Ibuprofen or Advil 30-45 minutes prior to your waxing service (recommended for body waxing such as Brazilians/ not facial waxing)
Do wear breathable clothing such as cotton and loose fitting clothes.
Do take a warm shower before waxing. This will help to open the pore for easy hair removal.
Do relax during your waxing service, because tense muscles make the area more sensitive.

Do not take extremely hot showers or sauna after waxing.
Do not drink alcohol or caffeinated drinks a few hours before your waxing service, doing this will only make the skin more sensitive.
Do not apply ice to the area before waxing, this will only tighten your pores and make the process more painful
Do not shave in between waxing sessions. Doing this will only make your next waxing service more painful. The hair will also be thicker; furthermore, you will not get that clean feel after wax.
Do not exfoliate the skin 24 hours after waxing
Do not work out for a period of 24 hours after waxing
Do not sunbath or tan 24 hours before and after waxing service
Do not wear tight clothes 24 hours after waxing
There is no need for deodorant application after under arm wax for that day.
