Preparation & Aftercare

Before Your Waxing

To get the best results and achieve silky soft skin, it's important to prepare before you bare!

  • Gently exfoliate and moisturise a week or two before your salon appointment. We'd suggest dry body brushing for larger areas. For your intimate areas, use a targeted chemical exfoliator (salicylic acid, e.g. Lycon Ingrown X-it, is perfect for this). This pre-care helps the hairs breakthrough and makes them easier to pull out from the root. By removing dead cells and decongesting clogged up skin cells, you'll also reduce the likelihood of ingrown hairs.
  • Moisturise daily, especially during the winter months when you might find your skin is drier than usual. Nourished healthy skin makes hair regrowth easier, and helps prevent ingrown hairs. Ensuring your skin is nourished and healthy will make hair regrowth easier and you will be less prone to ingrown hairs.
  • Keep your hair trimmed. If your hair is longer than 1cm then the wax will drag, resulting in more pain.
  • Have a shower before you leave for your appointment, especially if you're having an intimate wax - please think about your therapist.

After Your Waxing

Immediately after your waxing:

  • Avoid hot baths or showers
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to reduce friction
  • Avoid perfumed products, including lotions and creams
  • Apply over-the-counter cortisone cream to the waxed area to reduce inflammation
  • Avoid excessive activity for 24 hours after waxing (perspiration can irritate freshly waxed skin)

For a couple of days after waxing:

  • Continue to wear loose-fitting clothing to reduce friction
  • Continue to avoid perfumed products, including lotions and creams. You can apply mild gels, such as aloe vera, to help soothe the skin as needed.

In between waxes:

  • Cleanse and exfoliate regularly. Removing dead skin and bacteria helps release embedded hairs, and prevent ingrown hairs.
