Bare It All: Unleashing Your Inner Confidence with Spring Break Waxing

With Spring in bloom, it is time to refresh your waxing routine for smooth spring skin. Whether you like bikini wax, Brazilian wax, or prefer facial waxing- there’s an option for you. We want to look at the variety of options in waxing today so here is all the important information you need in order to get the best wax for you.

Comparing Other Hair Removal Methods

When you are looking for waxing services, you may also hear about other hair removal methods- which means, you have options. But waxing is still the most popular method for a reason! Waxing allows you weeks free from having to revisit the salon for hair removal, as well as cutting down on shaving time. Not only that, but shaving has risks of minor cuts, razor burns, and itching. Hair removal creams can cause irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin. It may seem like waxing would be harsh on sensitive skin types but it’s quite the opposite- you have no exposure to chemicals that can cause a rash. The only thing touching your skin is wax.

Where To Wax?

Sometimes you don’t want a full body wax. Body waxing can be expensive, so we offer a variety of waxing services so you can get the waxing you want without a full body session or spending extra money. When it comes to Spring break and you’re looking for super smooth skin, immediately visible areas like the legs, arms, and underarms can be easily addressed. The chest, back, and stomach are areas you can look into waxing too- and bikini waxes and Brazilian waxes can help with hair removal from more intimate areas. Note that if you prefer to keep a sense of modesty with full-body waxing, opt for a bikini wax.

If you don’t want body wax, facial waxing is available for your brows, upper lip, chin, and cheeks too! You can cut down on facial hair woes easily without worrying about putting a razor close to your face.

Benefits To Waxing

When you wax, you stop wasting time and money on razors. A lot of women realize that shaving is the culprit behind their ‘strawberry legs’, and waxing helps to prevent that look. It can last anywhere from three to six weeks- depending on your hair’s personal rate of growth and where the wax took place. When you wax consistently your hair also progressively gets thinner too, so even if you don’t have time to wax on your normal schedule one day, the hair you have will be softer and finer. You can only achieve this when you keep regular waxing appointments though, so make sure that you are maintaining your routine to the best of your ability.

Waxing Tips!

For new clients, you may want a few helpful tips to make sure that you keep yourself comfortable and get the best experience with your waxing appointment. These tips will help keep smooth, gorgeous skin for as long as possible.

One of the most important things to remember is to exfoliate! Do it two or three days before you go in for your appointment to remove the buildup of dirt and dead skin- it will keep your appointment comfortable, and the wax will actually stick to the hair you want to remove instead of the dead skin. Avoid doing it the day of or before though, or your skin could be sensitive.

Don’t shave! If there is no hair to grip too, then the waxing won’t do its job. Let your hair grow for a week or so, however long it takes your hair to get to a quarter inch long. If there is no length then the wax can’t grab the hair to remove it.

After you have gotten waxed, understand that your skin will need some time to recover. Wait a day or two before you go out and hit the beach before and after your appointment. Especially if you have gotten a more intimate wax or have sensitive skin. With the surface of your skin healing, exposing your skin to damaging UV rays can cause sunburns and hyperpigmentation. And risking a sunburn before means you may be unable to keep your appointment. You have to also consider the number of bacteria that exists in ocean water. You risk potential infections by exposing your skin to these elements too soon.

If you want your waxes to be pain-free, you need to return for regular appointments. So even through the winter- maintain your pain-free waxing by keeping your routine! The hair follicles get damaged and don’t have the same hold on your hair they used to when you do this regularly. You also build up a certain amount of tolerance, so you will see a major difference in your

Forgot To Wax?

Ah, the infamous spring break regret of not getting waxed beforehand – it’s like showing up to a pool party in a turtleneck. No shame there! Don’t worry, you’re not alone in your hairy situation. Sure, you may be feeling like a Yeti now, but that just means you’ll have more insulation for those chilly spring evenings, right? Plus, you can always rock the au natural look – embrace that 70s vibe and show off that wild side. And who needs to swim anyway? You can always just lounge on the beach with a good book and a cold drink, and no one will be any the wiser. So, don’t let those smooth-skinned beach-goers get you down – you do you, and let that hair fly free!
