    After Waxing Care: Our Top Tips

    Getting your skin ready before a wax is important, but your after-waxing skin care regime makes a huge difference in giving you a great waxing experience.

    The most common reactions to waxing are redness, minor irritation and

    ingrown hairs. But, with these aftercare waxing tips, you can have

    the best results and most comfort after your wax.

     

     

    1. Direct Heat, Sunlight, Hot Tubs

    Avoid the sun or wear sunscreen right after a wax. Waxed areas are

    prone to sunburn and hyper-pigmentation (small dark spots on skin)

    when exposed to the sun. It is best to wait at least 48 hours before

    exposing your skin to the sun. Also, as we head into wintertime and

    hot tub season, be aware that hot tubs can open pores further and

    water in general has bacteria (both of which can lead to post waxing

    issues).

     

    2. Avoid tight clothing

    Tight clothing, especially on the waxed areas can cause irritation

    and ingrown hairs. This is especially true along the panty line where

    hair breaks off due to constant friction. Choose panties and under

    garments carefully. Also, when choosing workout attire, remember that

    friction and excess sweating mixed with tight fitting clothes can all

    lead to an increase in irritation to the skin.

     

    3. Exfoliate

    Waxing exfoliates that skin, but don't start too soon. Using scrubs,

    AHAs, and loofas within the first 24 hours after waxing can cause

    further irritation to your skin, so wait about 48 hours before you

    begin exfoliating.

     

    4. Apply TendSkin

    TendSkin is a miracle product if you get ingrown hairs. After waxing,

    your pores are open for a period of time.  Open pores can become

    clogged with skin oil and dead skin cells; TendSkin helps prevent

    clogged pores and ingrown hairs.

     

    5. Keep Your Hands to Yourself

    Avoid rubbing the newly waxed area. This is especially true for

    facial waxing. Remember, your pores are open for a period of time and

    rubbing the area increases chances of filling your pores with oil,

    skin cells, and other debris.

     

    6. Sexual Activity

    Many people ask about sex after bikini waxing. Just keep in mind

    friction or anything that increases bacteria on the skin should be

    considered.

    Model Call: How to Be a Waxing the City Model

    Every few weeks we email out a model call. Do you know what it is like to be a model for Waxing the City?

    About Waxing University's Modeling Program:
    All of Waxing the City’s cerologists participates in on-going minimal waxing standards training. From time to time, we look for MODELS to help us with this program.  This is an opportunity for employees to get hands on experience in a learning environment. Models are rewarded by receiving the specified waxing services at a significant discount.

    All “students” are licensed estheticians and employees of Waxing the City.  They have completed all of our preliminary educational requirements and are excellent technicians. The goal of our modeling program is to give our cerologists real-life scenarios creating an opportunity to expand their waxing skills as they learn Waxing the City’s Minimal Waxing Standards.

    Customer Expectations:

    Models must understand that services are being provided by “cerologists in training”, therefore:

    • All services will be supervised by one of our trainers (2 people in the room)
    • As in all learning environments, there may be inconsistencies from time to time in our defined techniques
    • Specific services are needed on specific dates
    • The service may take more time than a normal session
    • All modeling will be at Waxing University, located at 1664 Market Street in Denver, CO.

    In return, models will receive:

    • Waxing services at a significant discount – 50% off normal price
    • Pride and satisfaction that you are helping less experienced estheticians become “certified cerologists”   

    Model Requirements:

    Models must meet the following requirements at time of service:

    • Hair growth is minimum ¼” inch long (at least 2 weeks since your last shave is a good general rule)
    • Limited time slots available
    • Duration of service varies depending on what service is being performed
    • Call if interested for complete listing of specific dates/times for various services

    Body Waxing: How to be your Smoothest Next Summer  

    With the temperature changes, you are probably beginning to wear more jeans,

    sweaters, tights and boots rather than skirts and tank tops. The fall

    is one of the best times of the year to develop a steady body waxing

    routine to include legs, arms and underarms.

     

    First off, since you will be covering up more, you are able to grow

    out that hair on your legs and underarms until your appointment and

    not worry about exposing it to the world. By beginning in the fall,

    you can normalize your waxing route, which helps hair on your legs,

    arms and underarms become thinner and lighter over time. By the time

    next summer hits, you will be waxing less, have thinner hair and have

    less hair in that area.

     

    Why it is Great to Wax Your Underarms

    Besides that razor burn hurts when it rubs on your favorite shirts,

    there are other benefits to waxing your arms and underarms. For one,

    you are able to stay smoother longer. Then, you know that "5 o'clock

    shadow" darkeness you can get under your arms from shaving? Well wave

    good-bye! That darkness will disappear with waxing because the hair

    comes out at the root.

     

    Why it is Great to Wax Your Legs

    Shaving only keeps you smooth a few days (if that). And it can create

    razor bumps and ingrown hairs. Waxing every three to four weeks

    during the fall and winter months will have you seeing silky, smooth

    results during the winter, but also leave the hair thinner and

    lighter for waxing during the summer.

     

    Other Reasons to Body Wax

    Professional body builders swear by waxing. One of their secrets is

    that waxing helps you look more toned. Other athletes like

    professional swimmers and cyclists wax their legs to help perform

    better, but waxing also helps chafing during races.

     

    Plan for spring and summer 2012 by booking your appointment to begin

    your body waxing regime today!!
