Its beach season: What about waxing?
As the weather gets warmer, we want to share the nitty gritty about waxing and the great benefits it provides to you (besides super smooth skin!)
If its your first time waxing we know there a can anxiety around the possibility of pain or discomfort. The best thing to do is: “take one or two Advil an hour before your appointment.” Exfoliated skin is a great preparation, but keep it simple avoiding “body lotion day of the wax and deodorants with perspirant for underarm waxing.” Your Currie esthetician will make the process as comfortable as possible for you: focusing on efficient results and minimal discomfort. Redness can occur after waxing: but don’t worry this is normal! Make sure to keep your esthetician appraised of any medications you are on so they can best treat you. For ladies, waxing can be done during pregnancy, but remember if your already sore or more sensitive, that can affect the level of discomfort.
Waxing results and longevity differ for each person, but generally every few weeks to a month waxing is necessary (depending on the area.) Brows, with their visibility, can tend to be necessary on a more routine basis.
After your services, its important to take care of your skin: our estheticians recommend Post Peel Balm or Tend Skin, both available now at Currie! “ After the tenderness has subsided, exfoliate in the shower to remove dead skin so the pores don’t become clogged, causing ingrown hairs and bumps. If bumps do appear, “don’t squeeze or tweeze!”
We often get the questions asking the difference between a bikini and brazilian body wax. “A Brazilian wax removes more hair than a bikini wax. Whereas a bikini focuses on the front and sides (what would be visible in a swimsuit), the Brazilian removes the front, sides, back and everything in between, often only leaving a strip of hair in the front—or none at all.” A consult with your esthetician will help you choose the best service for your need and comfort level.
