Waxing can have many benefits over shaving or alternative hair removal methods, but how can you get into a good routine to ensure you maximise these benefits? Once you get into the swing of things, keeping on top of your wax is really easy. It’s well worth putting a waxing routine in place, to ensure that you have silky smooth skin, without the bother of shaving rash, ingrown hairs or the unwanted scent of hair removal creams.
Here’s how to get into a good waxing routine…
If you’re yet to get waxed, the first step is to book an appointment and get started with your waxing routine. When looking for a clinic or similar, ensure you choose someone that has plenty of experience, and where possible go for organic wax to get the best results.
Decide where you want to get waxed, and where possible stick with this at each visit. Deciding where you want to get waxed, such as leg, bikini line and top lip, will help you get into and maintain your waxing routine. Of course you’re able to be flexible, and may not choose to always have your legs waxed at every visit, instead just having them done for a special occasion, as an example. Generally though, choose where you want to get waxed and stick with these areas at each appointment.
At the end of each session book in your next wax to ensure you don’t miss a wax which might get you out of your routine. You can book your waxing in for every 3-4 weeks, to allow the hair enough time to grow in between appointments. Make an appointment with your therapist at the end of your session and stick to it to maximise the benefits of waxing.
What you do at home in between your appointments matters and will make all the difference to your waxing routine. Regular waxing will ensure your skin is silky and smooth for far longer than shaving would, and it also helps to reduce the hair thickness, so that in between waxes your growth is less noticeable. To benefit from this though, you must avoid the temptation to reach for your razor, as this will take you right back to the beginning again, and will mean you’ll have to wait longer for your next waxing appointment.
Let your hair grow after each appointment, it will be noticeably softer than if you had shaved instead. You should aim to keep your skin healthy and hydrated in between waxes too. Aim to exfoliate once a week, and moisturise everyday. Before your next appointment, exfoliate and moisturise the day before, to prepare the skin for waxing.
Stay on schedule with your waxing – as you progress with waxing, the need for hair removal will decrease. With continual waxing instead of shaving, your hair will grow into a steady cycle. The growth will become weaker and more sparse, meaning you’ll have less of a need for hair removal as time goes on.
