A Little Waxing Wisdom

Waxing is a popular option for removing hair from the legs, bikini, underarms and face. However, in order to get the best results, you need to let your hair grow out for three to four weeks.

Although somewhat painful-imagine a bandage being quickly ripped off your skin-nearly all hair and skin types can use this method of hair removal, except, perhaps, for extremely sensitive skin, since wax can potentially tear or burn.

You can ask your aesthetician to apply a pre-waxing oil, which prevents hot wax from sticking to the skin, so it adheres only to the hair for a less painful experience.

You should stop using any products that contain retinol three to four weeks prior to your waxing appointment, since retinol encourages cell turnover and renders skin more sensitive.
