For many of us, facial hair can be embarrassing. That’s where facial waxing comes in.
It’s a better alternative to shaving, can keep your skin hair-free for weeks at a time, and can help you feel more confident as you face the world.
Here are some tips to help you get the most from your facial waxing session.
Before You Wax
Start out right for the best results of your facial waxing. Here are our top pre-wax tips:
- Allow Your Hair to Grow
Your hair needs to be at least 1/8 of an inch for the wax to properly adhere without harming you. Any shorter and all you will do is irritate your skin. Longer hair is also dangerous because the wax can cling to it, pulling the hair and possibly skin with it.
- Exfoliate Your Skin
By exfoliating before waxing, you’ll remove any dead skin or oil from your face and help your hairs come to the surface.
- Take A Painkiller
Let’s face it – waxing isn’t always pain-free. Some people have a high tolerance to pain and don’t feel anything while others are very sensitive, especially if they’re new to waxing. By taking a painkiller about half an hour before you wax, you can lessen your discomfort.
- Pull Up Your Hair
This seems like a no brainer, but you don’t want your hair getting in the way of your facial waxing. Pull it up in a high ponytail or bun or cover your hair with a scarf to make sure it doesn’t interfere while you’re waxing.
- Pick The Right Type Of Wax
The type of wax you use matters when it comes to facial waxing.
At Best Beauty Solution, we recommend using hard wax for your face and sensitive areas. With this type of wax, you don’t need to use muslin strips; you just apply and wait for it to harden before removing.
During The Wax
Now that you’ve prepped for your facial waxing, you’re ready to get started.
- Keep It Clean
One of the most important things to remember when you’re waxing yourself is hygiene. Wash your hands before you start and try to complete your entire waxing session at one time. This reduces the risk of infection and other negative side effects.
- The Direction Matters
When you apply your wax, put it on your skin in the direction of the growth. Then, when you remove it, pull it off in the opposite direction. This will help get the hair and follicle so that your wax lasts as long as possible.
- Don’t Wax More That Once
When you’re applying wax to your face, it’s important not to overdo it. Apply the wax, remove it, and then check on your results. If you have a few stray hairs, pull then with tweezers instead of trying to wax again, which can harm your skin long-term.
Post-Wax Wrap Up
Now that you’re done with your facial waxing session, there are a few things to do before you’re complete:
- Clean Up
One of the worst feelings is when you finished waxing but still have residue on your skin. With our Depimiel Waxing Moisturizing Almond Oil, you can remove the leftover wax without irritating your skin.
Another important thing to remember is to moisturize your skin after you wax. At Best Beauty Solution, we like the Depimiel post-waxing gel. It can help soothe your skin and relieve areas where hair has been removed.
