If you are off for your wax-session, then here are some key facts to brush up your knowledge.


i. NO Double Dipping - Double dipping (using the same stick twice to dip into the wax) is a big RED FLAG. It can lead to major health risks, plus it tells you how unhygienic the chosen waxing salon in Darwin is.

Furthermore, if you hear these experts stating that they heat the wax to 130-140 degrees (for killing the bacteria), just SCRAM! The heated wax will burn through your skin and still spread the bacteria.

ii. NO Shaving / Trimming Your Hair Prior To The Treatment - If you shave between your waxing sessions, it only promotes faster hair growth. Many rightly believe it to be counter-intuitive to waxing treatment.

As for trimming, it will make your hair short and difficult to wax. So, the recommended thing as per notable waxing practitioners serving in Adelaide is to not shave or trim anything prior to going for the treatment.

iii. NO Working Out Post The Treatment - Waxing is all about removing the unwanted/overgrown hair. So, what you should do is keep it clean and allow it to heal.

This even means skipping your regular working out sessions. The last thing you want is sweat and friction on your waxed body part. It increases possibilities of ingrown hair and also the spread of bacteria. The smart thing to do is wait for 24-hours at the max.

iv. EXFOLIATE Pre & Post The Treatment - Believe it or not, but exfoliating before and after the treatment is downright important. Before the treatment, exfoliating removes the dead cells from the skin and makes it ready for the treatment.

Probably a nice sugar scrub should do it for you. As for post-treatment exfoliation; you should wait for 48-hours (at a min) before giving it a nice sugar scrub. This could possibly reduce ingrown hair and keep your skin, soft and clean.

v. Limit Your Caffeine Intake 12-24 Hours Before The Treatment - Fun Fact - Drinking too much of coffee helps tighten your skin pores, increases sensitivity and makes it difficult to wax.

So, the smart thing to do is limit your caffeine intake 12-24 hours prior to your treatment.

vi. BREATHE & Stay Calm - Lastly, it is very important not to freak out. A lot of horror stories do float around about waxing treatments- especially about them being painful. However, this is not true at all. So, forget all those wretched misconceptions and breathe.

Doing so, will calm your body and make it ready for the impending treatment.

Hopefully, now you can prepare well for your waxing session without inhibitions or second thoughts. Last word of advice - always choose one between reliable waxing salons in Adelaide for your sessions. They can make the difference between a satisfying session as to an ailful one!
