2. HINTS AND TIPS
To prevent ingrown hairs gently exfoliate once a week with a natural loofah, or a product specifically designed to exfoliate ingrown hairs or indeed with homemade remedies which help the skin’s renewal and the exit of the hair from the follicle.
Exfoliating two days before waxing helps to open the pores. Urea or glycolic acid based moisturisers also help to smooth the skin, minimising the appearance of ingrown hairs. Wear loose clothing whenever possible, especially on those areas of the body prone to ingrown hairs. This prevents the skin from becoming irritated, which can force the hair below the surface of the skin.
Avoid bathing in water that is too hot as this causes an excess production of keratin (a natural fibrous protein of the skin) that builds up around the hair follicles.
Tips for exfoliating
Mix 1 cup of body moisturising cream with two tablespoons of sea salt and one tablespoon of honey until you obtain a homogeneous paste. Before applying the paste, massage the area with a natural loofah with gentle circular movements. Soak a towel in warm camomile tea and apply onto the affected area for 5 minutes (this helps to open the pores). Apply the exfoliating mixture using light circular movements. Wash the area well with warm water and a neutral soap. Finally, apply a layer of oil free moisturiser.
Tips for maximising waxing results
One week before waxing, gently massage your skin using a delicate moisturiser to smooth the skin and bring the hairs closer to the surface. Approximately 20 minutes before waxing take a warm bath to open the pores; alternatively use a specifically designed pre-waxing product which will help to calm the skin and soften the hairs.
It is extremely important to clean the skin properly before extracting the hair.
Avoid waxing your face if you are undergoing dermatological treatment, or any treatment that uses acids or other products which promote cell renewal.
Avoid waxing during your menstrual cycle, as during this period hormonal changes occur which make women’s bodies more sensitive.
Avoid waxing if you have rashes, skin irritations or any other skin anomaly.
To remove all wax residues, use specialised wax removal products, which have antiseptic properties and can help avoid infections.
Moisturising creams are not advisable after waxing as these can obstruct the open pores leading to ingrown hairs or infections. Oil-free gels or lotions will help calm the irritation and tone the skin.
Avoid sunbathing after waxing, as waxing exfoliates the top layers of the skin leaving it more vulnerable to the sun and thus more prone to dark spots. Should you still wish to sunbathe, apply a Factor 15 sunscreen.
Avoid using deodorants which contain alcohol as after waxing these can cause irritations and dark skin spots.
Avoid tight clothing.
Men who wax their chest might notice that the skin might be irritated after the first few sessions. This can happen to any skin type using any type of wax. We recommend exfoliating to prevent these skin irritations.
