After Your Wax !


Wear loose clothing for a few hours.

Don't expose the skin to sun or tanning beds for a few days.

Don't take hot showers or baths for 24 hours.  A warm shower or bath is fine.

Always wash with a clean wash cloth.  Loofahs or mesh sponges can harbor bacteria and cause break outs.

Don't swim in chlorinated pools, rivers, or dirty water for 24 hours.

Don't exercise for 24 hours.  This can cause perspiration which may irritate freshly waxed skin and cause a break out.  In fact, ANYTHING that causes perspiration (you know what I'm talking about), for the first 24 hours can cause a break out.

Don't apply scented creams/lotions, talc, etc. for 24 hours.

If you are prone to ingrown hair, we recommend the use of an exfoliating scrub 2 to 3 times a week, and a product we carry called Tend Skin.  Don't do this immediately after your waxing session.  Wait several days, start exfoliating and using Tend Skin as per instructions on the bottle.

It is not unusual to have a break out after your first waxing session.  Regular waxing sessions at 4 to 6 week intervals  will give you smoother results, less ingrowns, and no more break outs !
