EXFOLIATE.  Gently exfoliate 2-3 days a week to help prevent ingrown hair and to keep the skin in good condition between services.  Daily exfoliation is recommended starting 48 hours after body waxing.  We love the Shobha Exfoliation Cloth!  It’s “mother nature’s washcloth for smooth, ingrown hair-free skin”, plus it’s mildew resistant, biodegradable, fairly traded and made from sustainable resources.  Don’t forget to moisturize afterward.

BE HAIRY.  Do not shave or tweeze for at least two weeks prior to your service.  Your hair should at least be 1/4” in length.  The more hair growth you have, the longer your waxing/threading will last.

AFTER HAIR REMOVAL, skin can be more sensitive and prone to irritation.  Avoid touching your waxed/threaded area with dirty hands.  Avoid tanning/self-tanners for at least 24 hours, skin will be more sensitive to UV rays.  Avoid hot tubs/saunas for 24 hours.  Don’t forget to wear sun screen!  Coola is our #1 SPF choice, it is a chemical free sunblock that is moisturizing, hypoallergenic, paraben and preservative free.

FOR “HAIRLESS HAPPINESS”, treat existing ingrown hairs using our Shobha Ingrown Hair Relief Lotion.

BE AWARE.  Even though we take all precautions to give you the best hair removal service, extremely sensitive skin can still have challenges with minor bumps, rashes and itchiness.  These irritations can be treated with topical treatments like hydrocortisone cream.  If irritation persists, please see a dermatologist.

Waxing is not recommened for clients on Accutane, Differin, Retin-A, Tetracycline, Glycolic acid and Alpha hydroxy products.  For these clients, we recommend threading.
