MAKING HAIR REMOVAL EASIER

Before waxing, take a shower or bath, or lay a warm washcloth on the area to be waxed for a few minutes prior to waxing, but make sure area is dry and oil free before commencing. Sally Hansen also offers a variety of Extra Strength Wax Hair Removers for coarse, hard-to-remove hair.

ALLEVIATE PAIN

An ibuprofen tablet taken 30 minutes before waxing may help alleviate pain. Avoid taking aspirin as it may result in bruising.

TRIM HAIR TO LENGTH

Ideally, hair should be about 1/4 inch long before waxing. This is approximately three weeks growth, depending on the area. If hair is longer, trim before waxing.

COMBAT OIL

If you have oily skin, dust the area to be waxed lightly with powder before waxing. It helps absorb excess oil on the skin.

HOW TO WAX

When waxing, be sure to apply the wax in the same direction as the hair grows. Apply the strip over it, and give it two smooth, firm strokes. This makes sure the wax is adhered to the strip. When removing, pull the strip off in the opposite direction in which you applied it. Hold skin taut and pull the strip off quickly and as close to the skin as possible.

REMOVING EXCESS WAX

You can use either baby oil or mineral oil. For stripless waxes, use a little ball of leftover wax to remove the excess. It sticks to itself! Sugar waxes are water-soluble, so simply rinse with water.
