Before Your Wax

Exfoliate 24 hours before your appointment to take off all the dead skin cells and allow for a clean wax.

Do not use and moisturizers or creams before your wax as it could create a barrier between your skin and the wax.

Let the hair grow to at least ΒΌ inch so the wax can grab the hair when you come in.

If you are a tanner, please tan prior to your session or wait 24 hours after your wax as your skin will be sensitive. 

After your wax

After the first 24 hours moisturize everyday to keep your skin happy and gently exfoliate.

Don't shave as your hair will be courser and be more painful the next time you wax.

Avoid heat, excessive perspiration and tight clothing as it could clog pores.
