Bare-all Waxing Before & After Care
This is just as important as the waxing itself! It is making sure that you take care of your wax afterwards. Please, please follow my advice and refer back here for a guide of what (and what not!) to do …
Before you wax….
So you have booked a wax at 'Bare all'. Here is a couple of tips to lesson the OUCH!
If you haven't had waxing before and you are worried about the pain and embarrassment, dont be! Here at 'Bare all' you will be treated to reassurance and the highest standards. You will have the procedure explained to you in detail to help put you at ease. I like to make my clients feel as comfortable as possible and normally after a light hearted chat during the procedure, my clients are surprised when I say …..”You're all done until next time".
Do make sure your hair is long enough….no coming in two days after, shave! You need to have at least 3-4 weeks hair growth to get a good wax! And if you have been shaving and want to start waxing, you will need to persevere, we will get there and it will be worth it!
Girls if you are on your monthly…..Please, please don't worry yourself ? If you are able to wear a tampon, I can still carry out all waxing procedures without any embarrassing moments…..promise!
After your wax…
You have just invested time and money and a little discomfort in order to be 'hair-free' so it makes sense to look after it. I am not making this stuff up so please, read on…
Immediately after your wax it is normal to feel a little bit prickly, like a heat rash and have a little bit of redness. (Your hairs have been waxed out of the roots)
This should disappear after 24hrs. It is important that you keep the area clean and bacteria free.
No sunbathing for at least 24 hours (have your waxing at least a day BEFORE you head on holiday)
No swimming in a chlorinated pool for 24 hours
No saunas and spa baths for 24 hours
Avoid applying any topical lotions for at least 24 hours (fragrances and other lotions can cause a burning sensation on freshly waxed skin)
Try to avoid touching the waxed area to ensure it remains bacteria free
Use a tea tree oil based or a cooling aloe gel to keep the area free from bacteria and soothe.
3-10 Days after waxing
As your skin closes over the follicles, the next consideration is to ensure you prevent ingrowing hairs. This is when new, often softer hair can get trapped under the skin. A few simple measures can easily avoid this situation.Here is where the do’s come in:
• Use a soft brush or exfoliating glove to gently buff the area every 2-3 days-this is particularly important after about day 3 through to about the day 10 day. It doesn't need to be hard scrubbing, just a gentle exfoliation.
The added bonus of following the after care advise (apart from your skin looking hairfree and smoother longer), is that it really will make your next wax a whole lot quicker and less painful.
How long will your wax last?
If you are a first-time or occasional waxer you will likely notice some new hair growth within 2-3 weeks due to the naturally staggered hair growth cycle. This part of the re-growth will be sparse, about one-third of the hair normally present. Soon after the remaining hair will begin growing back.
Regular waxing will leave the area hair free for 3-6 weeks. Over time the density of the hair in the waxed area may start to decrease as well.
