Waxing is a great option for many women and men who want to remove hair from their body all at once and there is no better place than Moodie Hair Design and Spa in Ottawa. It allows them to sit back and have someone else do it with an almost impossible chance of a spot being missed. Only people with low pain tolerance or certain skin problems should avoid waxing; for others, it is fair game and it might change your life if you don’t have to shave every other day. Want to know how to make waxing hurt less?
First and foremost, don’t shave in between your appointments. Shaving in between waxing appointments will reduce the length of the hair and cause it to be harder or impossible for the hair to be removed. This is especially true in people who don’t regularly, or have not gotten, waxes before.
Your skin needs to be hydrated to remain healthy but it also needs to be hydrated to help the waxing process. Hydrated skin helps prevent ingrown hair which may arise from the waxing process. Use a lotion or other hydration method daily to help prevent ingrown hair and keep your skin healthy.
Do not tan or use a sunbed before your waxing treatment. Tanning makes your skin sensitive and irritating which leads to the possibility of skin lifting during the waxing process. Skin lifting is extremely painful and it is best to avoid it. Because the skin is used to having hair and the waxing process also makes it sensitive, it is best if you do not tan for at least a day after your waxing treatment. You will be more likely to burn or get redness from the tanning.
Avoid those tight fitting clothes that are so popular after you have had your waxing session. Tight fitting clothes will create friction against your skin and irritate it. This irritation can turn into a rash or ingrown hair, especially in your intimate areas.
Lastly, don’t consume alcohol before your waxing appointment. You may think it will reduce the pain of the process but often times, professionals do not accept clients under the influence of alcohol. Even a small amount of alcohol consumption will tighten the pores making the waxing process more painful.
Enjoy yourself and enjoy smooth skin with waxing. At Moodie Hair Design and Spa in Ottawa, we make waxing the best possible experience for you.
