What to Do When You Can't Go to Your Waxing Appointment
May 13, 2020It's no secret that spas and beauty salons are the best places to get a quality wax, so what's left for us when the possibility of a wax treatment is off the table? Now that these and other public venues have closed their doors indefinitely, you might find yourself out of options. If you're worried about months of your waxing regime going to waste, you should know that there are still ways to get your skin in perfect condition for hard and soft body waxes. Before turning to the razor, read through this information and get your skin ready for the ultimate wax session.
The COVID-19 – How to Fight a Global ThreatThe COVID-19 has changed the world in unprecedented ways, directly touching every corner of the globe at the same time and starting a new period that's completely changed society down to its roots. As you must know by know, staying home is not only the safest course of action for those with preexisting health problems, it's also the best way to keep the virus from spreading. At the moment, seclusion and social distance are the most effective resources.
In light of this, people all over the world have adapted to the isolation, delaying or downright canceling all sorts of plans in the process. From life-long business projects to dentist appointments and social gatherings, things have been put on hold while businesses come up with new ways to continue operations and provide services without violating the quarantine.
Tips and Tricks After Missing Your Waxing AppointmentFirst of all, don't stress over losing your waxing appointment. Aesthetic centers are also held by these new regulations and the staff at your favorite salon is probably working at rescheduling all pending appointments. If you had an appointment, then you already have your salon's contact information at hand. You can always contact them via phone, email, or through their social media accounts to keep tabs on things until it's the right time to plan for a new wax session. While you wait, there are some tips you can follow at home to keep your skin in optimal condition for waxing:
- Do Not Shave: Shaving might seem like a very tempting option in these weeks of confinement, but it's still the quickest way to disrupt your hair's regrowth cycle. Even if you can't book a waxing appointment, you're still in the middle of a waxing regime, and the sudden change will make your hairs grow unevenly and harder to tame. Shaving also turns the skin drier and harder in texture, making way for cuts, marks and ingrown hairs. Think about it: Unless you have to cover for bare necessities, you won't have to leave the comfort of your home, so this is actually the best time to go crazy with your body hair. By letting the hairs grow naturally, you'll be encouraging an extra-effective waxing experience in the foreseeable future. If you can stand the sight of hairs on your face or other areas, use tweezers to pluck the hairs that are most noticeable
- Masks and Skincare Treatments: If you suffer from allergies or acne breakouts, it can be frustrating to postpone your skin care treatment. While options like chemical peels are out of the question due to safety reasons, you can still pamper your skin with facial masks using accessible natural ingredients or skin products with no aggressive ingredients. While trying to replicate your dermatologist treatment might seem like a feasible option, you don't want to jeopardize your skin's current condition during such a hectic time.
- Protection, Exfoliation, and Moisturization: Waxing and skin care are a package deal. This is one of the advantages that make waxing so popular. While you can't get the professional hair removal services offered at salons, you can still preserve the softness and purity of your skin. Remember: aloe vera, oats, shea butter, and coconut are your best friends. Keep your skin hydrated with natural lotions and oils, and make sure your pores stay unclogged with regular exfoliation. Bacteria and infections are a risk even if you're not leaving the house. A healthy diet rich in proteins and vitamins B, C and E will also help your skin stay healthy and hydrated.
- Other Beauty Treatments: While you can be lenient with your hair removal routine, you shouldn't let yourself go just because you're staying home. A steady beauty routine is a perfect way to stay active and keep track of time. Take your time perfecting your haircare routine with new hairstyles and proper conditioning, keep plucking your eyebrows to give them the perfect shape, and treat yourself with weekly mani and pedi sessions. All these options will occupy your mind and work wonders on your mood.
What About At-Home Waxing?It's true that home waxing has been growing more common, with online tutorials and at-home waxing kits being a common sight. Despite all this, the fact remains that a professional wax service is the safest way of getting long-lasting results. This is partly thanks to quality wax products like Beauty Image's line of body waxes that are especially tailored to each skin type and provide additional protection against the strains of waxing. Such products are exclusively distributed to certified estheticians because they have the proper training to ensure results while preventing skin damage and unnecessary product waste.
Depilatory creams can also work as a quick solution to replicate the result of waxes. Since they don't reach the hairs all the way down to the roots, your skin will stay hairless for a week at most and the hair's regrowth cycle will be just as affected.
The COVID-19 has altered all aspects of regular life. Don't let it disrupt your wax regime and skin care routine. Beauty Image USA will continue helping estheticians stock up their salons with the best wax products to welcome you back once the quarantine period is over.
