Preparation for Your Waxing & Homecare

 

Preparation

 

In Preparation for waxing treatments, I suggest the following:

 

  • On the day of treatment, do not swim or soak in a bath.
  • Do not sunbathe or use a sun-bed.
  • Do not use oils or moisturisers on the areas to be treated.
  • Do not exercise vigorously.
  • Clean or disposable underwear should be worn for bikini waxing.
  • Hairs need to be a least ¼" long.
  • Previously bleached hair tends, when waxed tend to break off at skin level.

 

Homecare

 

  • Have only lukewarm showers and baths, preferably not until 8 hours after the treatment.
  • Gentle exfoliation 2-3 days after the treatment.
  • Do not use highly fragranced products.
  • Refrain from applying anti-perspirant deodorant or perfumed products to the area.
  • Avoid applying make-up over the area.
  • Avoid saunas, spa pools and swimming pools.
  • Avoid sunbathing or having a sunbed treatment.
  • Do not apply fake tanning products to the area.
  • Avoid sports activities, eg, jogging aerobics, etc.
  • Avoid gardening - which could introduce dirt into the treated skin.
