Waxing is one of the most hated procedures for women. However, if you follow a few simple tips, the process of getting rid of unwanted hair on the body may become easier and more comfortable, and the skin will remain smooth and soft for a long time.
1. Use the scrub before waxing
Before you pick up a razor, you should get rid of dead skin cells and impurities because of which hair begins to grow inside. Any scrub would be perfect for this purpose. It is necessary to apply the cleanser on the area of the body and massage the skin with circular motions. Then the scrub should be washed off with warm water.
2. Instead of the usual soap you need to use a special tool for shaving
Soap clogs the razor and dries the skin, while a special means (foam or gel) contains moisturizing components that make the blade slide easily over the skin.
3. The blade should be changed as often as possible
Of course, hair removal is best done with a new blade or a shaving machine because it will help to remove unwanted hair faster and prevent cuts and irritation. On average, blades should be changed after every 10 shaves.
4. You cannot wipe the skin dry after depilation
After the unwanted hair is shaved off, a part of the body should be thoroughly rinsed and blotted dry with a soft towel. You cannot rub the skin and wipe it dry – it should absorb a little moisture to prevent dryness and flaking.
5. After shaving, the skin must be thoroughly wetted
After waxing the skin needs a moisturizing cream or oil.
