Summer Time Wax

At Absolute Body Wax & Spa,  we strongly believe that waxing is a year round procedure and there is no particular season when you should enjoy smooth skin more than the other.  However, we do see an influx of summertime clients that are getting ready for bikini season.  We have decided to address the specifics of getting waxed in the summer and how it’s different from any other time of the year.

Your main concern when receiving a hair removal service during the hot Florida summer, is of course sweat!  If you ever talk with one of our Aestheticians, the first thing they will tell you would be “no sweating for 24 hours after your wax!”  This is rather hard to pull off with the blazing tropical heat.  In order to minimize the possible side effects, we strongly recommend wearing loose fitting clothing and soft cotton underwear (or even go commando if you’re bold enough!).  Try not to plan any outdoor activities right after your wax and wait a day before going to swimming  pools, lakes or rivers.  If you tend to sweat more than average, use some talcum powder or corn starch to absorb the moisture.

Another thing to keep in mind when getting hair removal services done, is the sun.  Waxing provides light and natural exfoliation to your skin, which results in making it more prone to sunburns.  With sun rays being extra aggressive during the summer time, there are some precautions that need to be taken.  You can always ask your Aesthetician to apply some sunblock to your face right after the waxing.  We also sell a variety of prevention care via our Image Skin Care line.  Wearing a large hat and sunglasses also protects your freshly shaped eyebrows and face.  Now for the body waxing, we do suggest safe sunbathing practices, such as staying in the shade as much as possible and using an umbrella on the beach.  Don’t forget to apply sunscreen with an spf of at least 30 and to reapplying if you are splashing in the water.

Summer is a great time  in Florida, so if you are planning on hitting the beach schedule your appointment today!
