The Perfect Waxing Experience
We all know there are various different benefits to waxing—smoother skin, long lasting softness, leaving you with more time! J But, sometimes the downfalls aren’t so fabulous—little red bumps, a pinkish-red color (lasting up to 24 hours), or small pimple-like spots. Those are worst case scenarios, and don’t always occur. However, if they do, we have just the thing to make your waxing experience at Josephine’s perfect!
Exfoliate: Lightly exfoliate area before waxing, even if it’s just a soft wash cloth. This helps rid the follicle of dry skin and oil. Aveda’s Outer Peace Acne Relief Pads are also an excellent choice to use daily to help control the red bumps or pimples. The Salicylic Acid helps to gently exfoliate the skin without over drying.
Loose clothing: Tight clothing or panty line may irritate the already sensitive area and cause the skin to break out. Also, stay out of the sun and avoid rigorous exercise, like running, for 24 hours.
Tend Skin Product: Tend Skin is formulated to help with skin irritation caused by waxing and shaving and is used by applying the product on the skin.
Josephine’s Day Spa & Salon uses 100% plant based hard or soft wax. This helps with potential irritations and breaks outs that could occur when using a synthetic wax. Also, keep in mind, practice makes perfect! When you start to wax consistently, you are exfoliating your skin with wax, as opposed to razor. Your skin will soon get used to it, and the process will become more convenient each time.
