During the summer months, when shorts and dresses are fashion staples, many women want smooth legs. However, many may wonder what’s the best way to get rid of unwanted hair. Waxing is an excellent alternative to shaving that can provide some of the best results out there.
Avoid burns or other injuries by leaving waxing to professionals. A professional will ensure all hair is removed correctly and as pain-free as possible.
If you want to wax your legs, there are steps to take before your appointment. First, make sure that your hair is long enough for waxing. If the hair on your legs is not long enough, removal will not be possible. Additionally, shorter hair is more painful to remove. Hair leg should be at least 1/4 of an inch long. If the hair is much longer, trim using clippers.
The second step for preparation is to apply moisturizer. Moisturizing the area to be waxed tightens the pores, which will create a firmer hold on the hairs. Doing this before the procedure will help to prevent pain.
After waxing, maintenance is required if you want to keep your legs feeling smooth. Exfoliating regularly will maintain soft, silky legs. Bath salts or loofah will remove dead skin cells.
