DO – Know everybody’s skin is different and you may be more sensitive than others when it comes to waxing. For instance, your skin may be red a bit longer than, say, a friend’s post-wax, but it should diminish quickly and disappear completely within a few days.
NO Alcohol before your Wax Appointment. Alcohol has a dehydrating effect on the body and skin, which could make your wax more painful. When your skin is dryer, your pores retract – the tighter your pores are, the tighter your skin will be holding onto your hairs, resulting in a more painful wax.
