7 Steps to the Best At Home Wax Session
I love a good salon sesh as much as the next girl, but between getting my hair done and my nails did, I don’t have the time (or funds) to run in for a wax every time an unwanted hair pops up. I discovered No Mo- Stache Wax Kits just when I needed them most! My bikini line was a mess a month away from summer; trying to grow out my over plucked brows left me with a disastrous unibrow; and out of nowhere, I started seeing fuzz on my upper lip like never before! Put down the razor blade and grab the wax kit!
I couldn’t find a salon that had enough time to book all my appointments during one session, so I hit up Ulta, and found exactly what I needed- calling out to me from a pretty pink tin: No Mo-Stache Kits! To be honest- my first attempt was a disaster! I didn’t read through the directions, and honestly had no idea what I was doing. After actually doing some research (reading the instructions) on the proper way to wax at home, I have been a master ever since, and want to share these best practice measures with you!
- Wash Yo Face
The first step to ensure your at home wax comes out amazing, is to start with a clean palette. You want to make sure that the wax sticks to the unwanted hair, and not dirt left behind by the day
- Dry Off
After washing your face to ensure the wax isn’t sticking to the dirt, make sure that you thoroughly dry your face with a clean towel. The wax will not adhere properly to wet skin, so a clean, DRY face is going to be important prep before the waxing begins.
- Warm the Strip
Now that your face is properly prepped, take a strip out of the tin and warm it between your hands for 20 seconds. This is important to make sure that the wax is at an optimal consistency to grab as much of the unwanted hair as possible, and prepares you for step 4.
- Place the Strip on the Skin
It is time to carefully place the strip on your skin, and rub in place for 10 seconds. This ensures that the wax adheres to all unwanted hair.
- Ready to Rip (well don’t actually rip)
The moment we have all been waiting for- it is now time to remove those hairs. To do this in a safe and efficient way- hold the skin taut, and pull as fast as you can in a zipper motion in the direction AGAINST hair growth. This is important to make sure this step is done as safe as possible.
- Tweezer Time
Take the handy tweezers out of the tin, and remove any excess hairs that may have been left behind. Attention to details like this will leave you with a flawless finish!
Apply aloe to the waxed skin to moisturize the area and help prevent redness. Remember, waxing is a form of exfoliation, so it is important to take care of the skin immediately after to maintain moisture. It’s also incredibly soothing on the skin!
