Hair Removal Like a Pro

avoid common hair removal pitfallsWith warm weather upon us, it’s time to show some serious skin. We’re talking silky smooth skin that glistens in the sun. Think it’s a pipe dream? It doesn’t have to be.

With a few expert-approved tips, you can avoid common hair removal pitfalls such as ingrown hairs, razor burn, cuts, and nicks.

  1. It is very important to take care of your skin between and before hair removal. Prepping skin with a deep cleanser and gentle exfoliant will give skin a fighting chance against hair removal woes. Since hair removal exposes pores, using a purifying cleanser will not only soften hair but will also remove any debris that can and will clog your pores. Once the skin is clean, prime it with a gentle scrub to remove dead skin cells giving the hair removal technique the cleanest slate possible, and to keep your skin soft and smooth.
    NOTE: Usually, exfoliation is recommended 1- 2 days prior to a wax or laser service normally not the day of service. Exfoliation helps wax grab hair and not skin, but it can also leave skin more sensitive. Should you need to exfoliate directly prior to the service use a very gentle scrub lightly and without pressure.
  2. Post-treatment best-kept secret: Balanced microbiomes! What?? Never heard of it? Like your gut, skin plays host to an array of bacteria and it’s important to keep those microbiomes balanced for healthy skin. Hair removal can disrupt skin’s microbiomes, leading to skin irritation, inflammation, eczema, acne and even accelerate skins aging. A simple solution to keeping skins microbiome in check is to use a serum after hair removal made with probiotics. Topically applying a soothing, anti-inflammatory serum made with probiotics will not only soothe skin and resist ingrown hairs but will also restore its composition of microbiomes.
  3. Moisturize! This can’t be stressed enough to avoid that dry, ashy look. Dry and flaky skin can also cause discomfort during hair removal. Once you’ve applied serum, use an ultra-hydrating moisturizer and body oil that will nourish, retain moisture, and soothe skin post-removal and between treatments. This will also help to reduce redness, irritation, and inflammation while giving skin that glistens-in-the-sun look.
