Do's and Don't guide
It is important that you do take care of your skin before and after waxing. It does help you get the best out of your wax appointment.
1. You decided that you want to wax for the first time or you went on a break from waxing. Great! Welcome! Time your first appointment in such a way that you can let your hair grow 2 weeks or until the shortest hair is about the grain of a rice. Don't worry if your hair is not growing equal. That is normal. In the meantime: exfoliate x 2 (with your last exfoliation 4-5 days before your appointment so it is calm) moisturize x every time after your shower What to use? an unscented, gentle moisturizer (on your venus mountain only) or with Sudocrem ( can be used on labia) or with a lotion of choice all over your body.
2. Your skin is irritated - Please book a consultation first to see what is the best that we can do for your skin. I will not wax you if your skin is not ready for it. It leads to more damage than good. We play this one safe :).
3. You just had your appointment. Your skin is a little bit sore, but not as bad as you expected. On the first day: take it easy, try to not sweat (no sauna, sun tanning, intensive sports or similar), you can rinse with lukewarm/warm water, no soap, pat dry, apply Sudocrem or any zinc based balm after your shower. Every other day apply a small amount of Sudocrem on dry skin after every shower. On the 7th and 14th, 21st and/or 28th day after your wax you should exfoliate with a gentle buffing scrub or enzyme peel or apply an anti-ingrown spray (AHA, glycolic acid, Salicylic acid based). Moisturize every time you scrub or use the spray. Never use any of these products combined. . Link your text to anything, or set your text box to expand on click. Write your text here...
4. When should I have my next appointment? Depending on how deep your roots are, seasons, body part, hormones, health, etc hair grows in its own rhythm for each person but for most persons 4 to 6 weeks between appointments is sufficient. Five weeks seem to be ideal for most. Less than 4 can be skin damaging.
