Perfectly Waxed Legs for Summer Fun: The Dos and Don’ts
With the warmer weather taking hold once again, it’s only natural for beach-loving women to start thinking about getting even more serious with their hair removal regimens. Nothing says summer like a perfectly waxed pair of legs, perfectly suitable for everything from a breezy summer dress to your favorite pair of shorts or stylish bikini. Now, you could stick to the old razor, shaving every few days and enduring the almost inevitable cuts and scrapes that accompany that process – but who wants to put up with that all summer long? As always, your best option for summer-ready legs is professional waxing! But before you head to the spa to get your gorgeous legs waxed clear, there are a few dos and don’ts that you need to know.
Do make sure that you let the hair grow out to about a quarter-inch in length before you head in for your waxing. That ensures that there is enough there to get the kind of results you need.
Do plan waxing sessions for every four or six weeks. If you let it grow much beyond that point, the hair will be more painful to extract. That fresh, early stage hair is always the easiest to remove.
Do make sure that you take some sort of mild pain reliever prior to coming in. Even the most experienced waxing technicians can’t make the process entirely pain-free.
Do Use cold compresses and natural cleansers on your legs a couple times each day after a waxing. This will help to relieve any mild swelling or bumps that may appear as the body reacts to the process.
Do exfoliate. That one simple act can help to prevent ingrown hairs that might otherwise appear.
Don’t plan any strenuous activities for the first day after a waxing appointment. If you get sweaty, you might find that your skin is irritated by the salt you secrete. That could make your discomfort even worse.
Don’t try to shave your legs between sessions at the spa. We work to remove the hair’s root, and shaving will just encourage those roots to grow back stronger. That, as you might expect, will just make your next wax session more painful.
Don’t forget to moisturize – both before and after a waxing session.
Don’t lose patience with the process. It can take several sessions for most waxing clients to get comfortable with leaving that razor in the medicine cabinet where it belongs, and just trusting the wax. Once you grow accustomed to your new silky-smooth, razor burn-free legs, however, you’ll wonder why you ever bought a razor in the first place.
