Do you have unwanted hair on your face that you want to get rid of? Facial waxing is a process that removes hair from its roots, leaving your face smooth and hair-free. Here are some things you should know facial waxing before booking your first facial waxing session:
You can’t walk into your first session with barely there facial hair. Make sure that there is sufficient hair to wax in the first place. If you do regular tweezing or shaving of facial hair, you will need to stop your routine for 2-3 weeks. Facial hair needs to be at least 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length in order for the wax to pull anything out.
As facial waxing involves the application of an external products on your face, sensitive skin might break out after a facial waxing session. Furthermore, your sensitive skin might also be more prone to tearing during the facial waxing session itself.
Initially, especially after your first waxing session, you might notice hair growing back thicker and blacker. This is because hairs are usually broken in the first session, rather than removed from the root. Do not worry though; not everyone experience this. However, long-term waxing results in less regrowth and noticeable hair.
This is different for everyone. Some will experience redness for only 15 minutes, while others be red-faced for up to 12 hours. This depends on your skin type and how much your skin is accustomed to waxing. Although you might be tempted to cover redness with makeup, you should avoid doing so because it can only cause further irritation to your skin.
Give your skin some time to heal by itself. You can speed up the healing process by using soothing products such as Aloe Vera Gel.
