Waxing Tips to Body Wax this Winter
December 12, 2018Winter time is coming, and you are thinking you'll finally be able to stop waxing for a while. After all, you'll be all covered up in cozy leggings and sweaters, no need to show off skin. Well, let us tell you that you better book that winter waxing appointment ASAP! Waxing in winter is as important as in the rest of the year to maintain your pain-earned flawless skin. So, read on and get the best tips on how waxing in winter. Plus, get the lowdown on the best hard body waxes for winter waxing.
Tip number 1: Be consistent.
As we just mentioned, your best bet is to keep waxing throughout winter. Why? Because persevering in your routine ensures that the hair follicle will keep weakening, so that your hair really grows back slower, thinner, and sparser every time. Otherwise, if you interrupt your routine, you'll probably be back to square one when you wax again in summer: hair might grow back thicker, and the procedure might be more painful.
Tip number 2: Moisturize at all times.
Dry and cold weather takes a toll on your skin if you don't stay moisturized. Avoid flaky and dehydrated skin by slathering on a rich body butter a couple hours after your wax. Obviously, you should keep up this routine every day, no matter what. Wintertime is the perfect time to pamper your skin more thoroughly.
Tip number 3: Keep it down with the hot showers.
We know that a hot shower in the winter comforts you, but too much of a good thing is still bad. Hot water strips your skin of its natural oils and moisture; add cold, dry air to the equation and the result is thirsty skin. Make sure the water is lukewarm rather than hot and keep the shower or bath short. As obvious, put on lotion afterward.
Tip number 4: Use your exfoliating mitt.
Keep flaky skin at bay! Exfoliate with a soft mitt at least once a week. A creamy exfoliating scrub is another good option to do away with old skin cells while moisturizing the skin. Remember: if you have already booked your waxing appointment, exfoliate one or two days prior.
Tip number 5: Don't even think of retouching with a razor.
So, you thought you could get away with skipping your appointment at the wax bar just because the razor is at hand? Think again. Shaving will drag back all the progress you made through the months you spent waxing. Not removing hair from the root means that your next waxing will be as painful as your first, and you don't want that, do you?
Tip number 6: Use warm compresses.
If you can't or won't take warm showers or baths, use a warm compress a couple of hours before your appointment. This will open your pores, preparing them for hair removal. It's also a good excuse to get your body comfy and warm.
Tip number 7: Make sure your hair is long enough before your appointment.
During winter, hair growth might tend to take longer. This is because the pores are more constricted due to the cold weather, which doesn't allow hair to come through the skin as fast as in summer when pores are more open. So, take your time to wax again if you notice that your hair growth is taking longer.
Tip number 8: Take advantage of holiday deals and packages.
Salons and wax rooms often offer holiday deals to keep their clientele coming. Since beauty professionals know that many clients shy away from waxing during the winter, they upsell their waxing services and related skin care products. Look out for the perfect package that suits your needs and hit the salon to keep your skin smooth for the holidays.
