Stop Shaving + Tweezing 5-7 Days Before Your Wax

This allows your hair to grow out—because hair that's about the length of a grain of rice allows our Comfort Wax® to get a better grip.

Gently Exfoliate Before Your Reservation

This removes dead skin and allows for a closer wax. It also dramatically lessens your chances of developing ingrown hairs post-wax.

Plan for Extra Sensitivity

Like a lot of other things, skin can be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle—so consider booking your reservation in between your cycles.

Get the Jump on Discomfort

If you're concerned about discomfort that may come from waxing—especially if it's your first time—consider taking an ibuprofen an hour prior to your wax.

Baggy is Best

Just-waxed skin is always a bit more sensitive. Wearing loose, thin clothing won't irritate your skin as much as restrictive, thick fabrics like spandex, lycra or denim.

Opt for Natural Fibers

Let your skin breathe! Natural fibers like cotton and silk promote airflow and won't stick to your skin like synthetic fabrics.
