Stop trimming and cutting your body hair
Waxing is a big deal. Just imagine if your aesthetician couldn’t see you the few days before a beach vacay. It might ruin your holiday. And we give a lot of power to the person pulling our hair out. To find out what she’s thinking, I asked Lexi Miles, founder and beauty entrepreneur of Waxon, what the experience is like on the other side of the strip.
“The ideal length of hair for a flawless wax is the length of a grain of rice,” says Miles. “Although with some of our waxes, we can remove hair as short as one millimetre, it is important to get your hair on a growth schedule.” That means getting a wax hair removal treatment about every four to six weeks. That will give you the least amount of pain, she adds. Don’t over trim! Before you get waxed, make sure you read up on the health risks of going bare down there.
She wishes you’d do this one thing before your waxing appointment
“Exfoliate,” exclaims Miles. “Always prepare hair—and skin—for removal by sloughing away dead skin cells. We recommend exfoliating against the direction of hair growth with an all-natural exfoliant ideally containing sugar or salt 12-24 hours before your appointment. Try our On the Rocks body scrub.” Follow these tips before and after your appointment to get the most of your wax.
