The entire ball game of seamless waxing depends on your skin type and the wax you use. To aid the process, we at BIOSOFT have decoded the needs of different skin types ranging from normal, dry, oily to sensitive along with the different types of wax.
Over the years, waxing has earned the reputation of being the best depilatory method. Right from removing the hair from its roots to delivering a smooth skin, waxing has aced the game. But many of us still fail to achieve a seamless waxing experience. Have you ever wondered why? It’s because you might not be using the right wax which is suitable for your skin type. It might seem a little confusing. But there’s nothing to worry about. We’ve got you covered!
We at BIOSOFT always want to ensure that your skin gets all the care which it deserves. Thus, we have navigated the right wax for you, based on your skin. But before that let's understand what’s your skin type and what are its needs.
How to Identify Your Skin Type?
Understanding your skin type is the key to achieving the perfect waxing experience. It’s because the main role of waxing is to remove hair which is gutted into the skin. Everyone is born with a unique skin. Your skin is a myriad of genetics, lifestyle and much more. Just like your nutritious need, your skin needs also vary. This plays a huge role while selecting the wax type and the ingredients within. Thus, to make your decision making easier, we have classified the skin types in board categories. Let’s have a look at them.
- Dry Skin: Under this skin type, your skin is always on the hunt for moisture. It doesn’t have the ability to produce excess sebum which leads to dryness, itchiness and flakiness.
- Oily Skin: Under this skin type, your skin produces excess sebum. It does keep your skin hydrated but at the same time, your skin feels extra greasy. Oily skin faces a hard time while waxing as the wax doesn't adhere to the skin properly. But there’s a solution for it which you will get to know in a while.
- Sensitive Skin: People with sensitive skin type are extremely vulnerable to internal and external factors. Signs like itching, redness, and rashes are generally associated with sensitive skin type. This skin type is even prone to allergic reactions. Hence it becomes prudent to take extra care of your sensitive skin.
- Normal Skin: This is a normal skin type wherein there is a perfect balance between the water-retaining properties and sebum production.
Now that we have got a good understanding of what each skin type feels like, let’s look at which wax fits the bill.
Dry Skin - Banana, White Chocolate, Argan Oil or Green Apple Liposoluble Wax
As mentioned earlier, your dry skin needs a moisturizing agent to keep it soft and supple. In such cases, opting for liposoluble wax with ingredients like banana or white chocolate is the right choice. Liposoluble wax being hot in nature, loosen up the hair follicles and removes the hair gently. On the other hand, the ingredients like banana, white chocolate, argan oil and green apple help in hydrating your skin. This provides the dual action of hydrating and seamlessly removing the hair without tampering your dry skin. Post- waxing, your skin feels nourished and eludes a shine.
Oily Skin - Chocolate or Gold Liposoluble Wax
The best way to tackle oily skin is to prep your skin with talc powder. It helps in soaking up the excess oil and gives the wax, and even canvas to work on. On the other hand, as per salon professionals, liposoluble wax works best on oily skin. If you have an oily skin type, we recommend you to use chocolate or gold wax. Both the variants replenish your skin and keep skin-acne at bay which is a common problem faced by oily skin type.
Sensitive Skin - Aloe Vera or Pink Liposoluble Wax
If you have a sensitive skin type then liposoluble wax is your saviour. It helps in removing your hair seamlessly without causing any irritation to your skin. It keeps redness, itching, allergies at bay and ensures smooth and silky skin. On the other hand, for that extra care, we recommend opting for ingredients like aloe vera or pink (rose). It helps in soothing your sensitive skin and shields it from other external irritants.
Normal Skin - Charcoal or Pearl Liposoluble Wax
People with normal skin type are truly blessed ones! Instead of looking for hydration, their main goal needs to be to detoxify their skin. Here’s where liposoluble wax in charcoal works its magic. It cleanses your skin while waxing and leaves you with cleaner and healthier skin. If you are looking to add a smooth shine to your skin, we recommend opting for liposoluble wax in pearl. It helps in removing the hair seamlessly and seals your skin with a coat of unique shine.
