Got sensitive skin and feeling a bit nervous about the whole waxing experience? Don't stress because we've got your back (and legs, and maybe a few other areas too)!
Once you get the hang of waxing, it'll become your go-to for hair removal and you honestly won't look back.
Gentle Hair Removal
Shaving is convenient but it can get a little chaotic, especially if you're shaving in the shower and only have 15 minutes before you have to head out the door. Waxing gives your skin the VIP treatment by removing hair from the root for that oh-so-smooth feel.
Less Maintenance, More Fun
Shaving everyday is a struggle when you sensitive skin. With waxing, you get to enjoy longer periods of hair-free bliss, without the added sensitivity of everyday shaving.
Hair Regrowth, But Make It Cute
As time goes on, waxing helps your hair grow back finer and softer, turning your next regrowth into a spa day for your skin.
How to Prep For Waxing with Sensitive Skin
Everyone should go through the preparation steps of waxing before applying the technique of hair removal but its even more important if you have sensitive skin.
Before the grand waxing extravaganza, test a small amount of wax on a tiny area, preferably the back of your hand or forearm. If you have no reaction after 24 hours, you're good to get started.
Glow-Up with Exfoliation
Prep your skin with pre-wax exfoliation. Leave the dead skin behind and make room for the silky smooth skin!
Avoid the Sun
Skip the sunbathing 24 hours before and after waxing. Your skin is the VIP guest, and we want it looking and feeling fabulous.
As the wax pulls hair directly from the root, your sensitive skin may become irritated, even if you've waxed a number of times. This is common and nothing to worry about, however, you should take extra care of your skin with post-wax TLC to avoid further irritation.
Treat your skin to an soothing aftershave like chamomile, coconut or tea tree oil. Give your skin the red carpet treatment.
Avoid Harsh Products
Say no to alcohol, retinoids, and fragrances for at least 24 hours. Your skin will need a break.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Hydrate your beautiful skin with a fragrance-free, hypoallergenic moisturizer to maintain a silky feel and smooth touch.
Troubleshooting the Treatment Area
Redness and Swelling
Cool down redness and swelling with a cold compress or aloe vera gel. Your skin will thank you.
Ingrown Hair Emergency
Banish ingrown hairs with gentle exfoliation. No picking allowed!
Allergic Reaction Drama
If you experience an allergic reaction, consult a dermatologist immediately and discontinue use of the product.
