CHECK THE LENGTH
If you’re getting a wax anywhere from the neck down for the first time (arms, legs, bikini), your hair growth must be a minimum ¼ inch in length. After that, you’ll need to wait 3-4 weeks between waxings, depending on your hair growth.
REMEMBER THE 24 AND 48 HOUR RULES
Don’t go in the sun for 24 hours after waxing. You’ll also need to stop using any product with alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) 48 hours before your waxing service, and not start using them again until 48 hours after. Skip aggressive scrubs for 48 hours after, too.
KEEP UP THE MAINTENANCE
The better you maintain your skin, the better results you’ll get with each waxing service. Post-wax, after any tenderness has subsided, prevent ingrown hairs under your arms and at the bikini line with an exfoliator ( i recommend Bioelements Quick Refiner or Pumice Peel). Exfoliating removes dead skin, and prevents clogged pores, ingrown hairs and bumps.
TAME POST-WAX IRRITATION
A product like Aloevera gel will calm and cool visible redness. Make sure you don’t wear any irritating fabrics that can irritate the skin, too – opt for underwear made from soft cotton post-bikini wax. You should also avoid exercise right after, as sweat and workout clothes can trigger irritation. And keep the temperature down in the shower – super-hot water can inflame just-waxed skin.
KNOW YOUR SENSITIZERS
You may want to avoid waxing while menstruating, as it can raise your skin’s sensitivity ( of course there is always an exception). Also, medications can make you more sensitive as well – avoid waxing when taking Retin A or other prescriptions. Talk to your esthetician if you have any concerns. And never book a wax if you have a sunburn! Of course, you always wear SPF, right?
