Summer is just around the corner, and you know what that means – shorts, tank tops, and swimsuits! As the weather heats up, it’s natural to want to shed some layers and show a little more skin. If you’re considering full body waxing to get summer-ready, there are a few things you should know before you book your appointment with Beauty21. From preparation to aftercare, I’ve got you covered with these tips for a successful waxing experience.
- Preparation is Key
Before your appointment, it’s important to prepare your skin for waxing. That means exfoliating the area with a gentle scrub and avoiding any lotions or oils. On the day of your appointment, wear loose-fitting clothes and avoid exercising or sweating before your appointment. Taking these steps will help ensure that the waxing process goes smoothly and that you get the best results possible.
- Timing is everything
When it comes to full body waxing, timing is everything. Ideally, you should book your appointment for about a week after your last shave or wax. This will ensure that the hair is long enough for the wax to grab onto, but not so long that it’s difficult to remove. For women specifically, it’s also important to avoid scheduling your waxing appointment right before your period, as your skin may be more sensitive and prone to irritation.
- Know what to expect
If you’re new to full body waxing, it’s natural to feel a little nervous or unsure of what to expect. The process involves applying warm wax to the skin, allowing it to cool and harden, and then pulling it off quickly to remove hair from the root. While it may be uncomfortable or even painful, depending on your pain threshold, the results are worth it. Talk to your esthetician if you have any concerns or questions before your appointment.
- Take care of your skin afterward
After your waxing appointment, it’s important to take care of your skin to avoid irritation or ingrown hairs. Avoid wearing tight or restrictive clothing, and follow your esthetician’s recommendations for aftercare products like moisturizer or aloe vera gel. You should also avoid exfoliating for a few days after your appointment to give your skin time to heal.
- Be consistent
Finally, if you want to maintain your smooth, hair-free look throughout the summer, it’s important to be consistent with your waxing appointments. Book your next appointment BEFORE you leave the salon, and follow a regular schedule to keep your skin looking its best. With time, you may find that your hair grows back thinner and less frequently, making the waxing process even easier and more effective.
Full body waxing can be a great way to get ready for summer and feel confident in your own skin. With these tips, you can prepare for your appointment, know what to expect, and take care of your skin afterward. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first-timer, don’t be afraid to talk to your esthetician or ask questions along the way. With a little care and consistency, you can achieve smooth, hair-free skin all summer long.
