Waxing Do’s & Don’ts


  • Moisturise your skin daily.
  • We recommend exfoliating with Dermalogica’s Ultimate Buffing Cloth – For best results use the buffing cloth 2-3 times a week. The Buffing Cloth is hygienic and lasts for up to 6 years.
  • We recommend that you shower immediately after exercise to clear follicles of perspiration, which can lead to bacterial infections.
  • We suggest clients wear cotton underwear or no underwear after a treatment to allow your skin to breathe.
  • We suggest that if you have in grown hairs to purchase Bump Eraiser (no more ingrowns) Medi Paste.
  • After a treatment we suggest those who have sensitive skin to apply an ice compress, an anti-histamine lotion or moisturiser to reduce possibility of hiving or irritation.
  • For men – we suggest bringing along a clean shirt if you are having a chest, abs and/or back wax as males are more prone to sweating and it is best to keep the area free from any bacteria.






  • Don’t exfoliate your skin until 3-5 days after your wax.
  • Don’t exfoliate your skin every day. This dries up natural oils from your skin’s surface, making it difficult for the hairs to break through the skin.
  • Don’t use a natural loofah, as bacteria thrive in natural fibres.
  • Don’t apply deodorant until 24 hours after a treatment.
  • Don’t apply makeup directly after a facial wax.
  • Don’t visit a solarium 24 hours before a waxing treatment as this may cause you to burn.
  • Don’t go out into the sun until 24 hours after wax treatment.
  • Don’t pick at ingrown hairs, it may cause scarring and look unappealing. Come in and we will remove them professionally and hygienically.
  • Don’t shave between waxing treatments. This distorts the hair growth cycle.
  • Don’t go to the gym or exercise directly after a wax treatment.
  • Don’t swim in chlorinated pools or at the beach until 24 hours after a treatment.
  • Don’t wear tight clothing after your wax as it may irritate the skin.
