Whether you are getting ready for your first waxing appointment or your 20th, there are some things you can do to prepare yourself for your appointment and ensure that it is as comfortable as possible. 

Allow your hair to grow

For waxing to be the most effective, sufficient hair growth is needed. Letting the hair in the area to be waxed grow to at least ¼ to ½ inch in length. This helps the wax to adhere properly and makes it the most effective.

Exfoliate the area

A day or two before the appointment, gently exfoliate your skin with a mild exfoliating scrub or a gentle brush. This helps remove dead skin cells and helps the wax better adhere to the hair, and helps reduce the chance of ingrown hairs. 

Moisturize regularly

Ensure that your skin is hydrated. Hydrated skin is more supple and less prone to irritation, which can make your appointment easier. 

Avoid sun exposure and tanning

Stay away from direct sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 24 hours before your waxing appointment. Sunburned or tanned skin is more sensitive and can result in increased discomfort.

Cleanse the area

On the day of your appointment, be sure to bathe before your appointment and gentle cleanse the area thoroughly. Ensure your skin is clean and free from any lotions, oils, perfumes, or residue. 

Wear loose, comfortable clothing

After your appointment, it is common to experience some discomfort. Wearing loose clothing that does not rub against the freshly waxed area can cause irritation and can prolong any redness or bumps.

Talk to your esthetician

Communication is key! If it is your first time getting waxed or you have any concerns, do not hesitate to communicate with your esthetician. They can provide guidance, answer your questions, and ensure that you have a positive experience.

Following the pre-waxing preparation tips outlined in this blog post means you’re on your way to a more comfortable and effective waxing experience. Taking care of your skin, allowing proper hair growth, and communicating with your esthetician are key factors in achieving the desired results.
