Time Required: 45 minutes to 1 hour
Using a wax heater or microwave, heat the wax as directed. Don’t overheat.
Hair should be ¼ to ½" long. Trim hairs if necessary to minimise waxing discomfort.
Once you’ve found the right product, grab your applicator and spread a thick layer of wax – about 2 mm – in two different directions before allowing it to cool and harden: First spread a layer going against the direction of hair growth and then spread another layer going with the direction of hair growth, continuing your second layer a little past the treatment area. Work in small sections, about the size of your palm.
you’ll know when the time is right because the wax takes on a dull colour and won’t be sticky to the touch. When it’s ready, lightly lift the wax that isn’t attached to the hair – this is why you continued spreading the second layer past the hair growth – and pull away from the skin in the opposite direction, holding the surrounding skin taut with your free hand.
To soothe inflamed skin, apply the soothing after-wax lotion. Stay away from direct heat, including sunlight, sweat and tanning beds for 24 hours. To maintain a smooth finish, you should plan on waxing every two to six weeks depending on the treatment area and your hair type.
