What do I do before my wax?
A few days before your appointment exfoliate the area. This helps get rid of expired cells and prepare the hair for your wax. On the day of your wax do not moisturise, apply deodorants or have any hot showers or heat based treatments (ie sauna, steam, sunbeds) If you have sensitive skin, why not have a complimentary patch test 24-48 hours prior to your appointment. T ry and avoid getting waxed in the run up to your period as you will be more sensitive. Avoid drinking caffeine on the day of your wax as it sensitises you. Strange but true! Now relax and wax!
What is hot wax?
