The depilation process always seems like a daunting task. For many, it is a painful experience but if done using the correct technique, waxing can be the best method of hair removal. To help you out, we at Biosoft bring five techniques that promise you silky smooth skin with a hassle-free experience.
The Length Matters!
Hair breakage is one of the most common concerns faced by many while waxing. The primary reason behind this is the length of your hair. We relate with the temptation to trim your hair in-between waxing appointments. But as per professionals, it hinders with you achieving the perfect wax. The ideal length of your hair needs to be at least 1/4th inch or the size of a rice grain. What this does is, it allows the wax to grab onto your hair which in turn easily pulls out the hair from the skin within. This not only ensures a seamless waxing experience but cuts down the speed of your hair growth to half!
The Right Direction of Waxing
A highly recommended tip by salon professionals is that one should always apply the wax in the direction of hair growth. Applying the wax in the direction of your hair growth and pulling the strip in the opposite direction ensures a seamless wax. This is an important tip to follow as it assures an even application, close wax and cancels out the possibility of hair breakage.
Say No to Double-dipping
We are amidst a pandemic, and right now the most important thing one should focus on is hygiene. It is seen that during the waxing process, we tend to re-dip the same spatula which is being used to apply the wax on the skin. This is called double-dipping. Experts have concluded that this is highly unhygienic for your skin. It is a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Which in turn causes skin infections and various skin diseases. Many people believe that the high temperature of the wax kills the bacteria. But in reality, it isn’t true at all. You should completely avoid double-dipping to stay away from the bacteria.
Moisture Free Skin is a Must!
One thumb rule while waxing is that your skin should be moisture-free. Many salon professionals state that one shouldn’t apply a regular moisturizer or even get waxed immediately after a shower. It is because the moisture doesn’t allow the wax to stick onto your skin easily. On the other hand, it induces a level of skin irritation, post waxing. If you have sweaty or oily skin, it is highly recommended to apply powder to soak up the moisture.
The Art of Layering
The consistency of your wax application is extremely important while getting waxed. You are more likely to not get a close wax if you apply a thick layer of wax. You can instead start by applying a thin layer of wax and repeat the process if the need arises. Low melting temperature wax helps in achieving the right consistency. Thereby making it a hassle-free waxing experience.
