It's extremely important to prepare your skin for your waxing service. Not preparing your skin could lead to broken hairs instead of hair that comes out from the root. This can happen when the skin is extremely dry or when you are dehydrated. Here are some tips that will help you get the most from your waxing service.


* Don't shave, hair must be a least 1/4 inch long for waxing.

*Avoid sun expossure or tanning beds 24 to 48 hours before waxing appointment.

* Stop the use of Retin A, Retinols and Glycolic Acids 5 to 7 day before your waxing service.

*Must be off of Accutane 6 months before waxing.

*Gently exfoliate the area to be waxed before your waxing appointment.

*Keep skin moisturized before your waxing appointment to allow the skin to release the hairs easier.

*Make sure you are well hydrated to allow your skin to release the hairs easier.

*Make your waxing appointment a couple of days before or after your period to make waxing less painful.

*Take Tylenol 40 to 60 minutes before your waxing appointment.

*Wear lose clothing to your waxing appointment to avoid skin irritation.
