Men’s Waxing Preparation

0 Comment

At Theresa’s Face and Body, the tip of the week is how to make back waxing, one of our most popular male waxing services, a seamless experience for our clients. For starters, and to achieve the best results with waxing, make sure the hair to be treated is at least a 1/4 inch long. This also applies to leg, arm and chest hair as well. This length allows the wax to grip the hair, resulting in better waxing results overall.

Exfoliate Your Back

Also, make sure to exfoliate your back. This is done by using wash cloth or a loofah sponge and gently rubbing the skin to remove dead skin cells.  It is ideal to exfoliate once a day in the shower at least three days before waxing.  Proper exfoliation will help the hairs to come up to the surface of the skin where they can be removed root and all. Exfoliation also removes any barriers of dry or dead skin cells to avoid rough, dull skin, as well as clogged pores.

Avoid Sweating

It’s also extremely important to avoid sweating from going to the gym, playing sports or other vigorous activities for a period of 24 hours after your back waxing treatment. This is because after waxing, your pores are open and take time to close and heal Sweating can irritate the open follicles and attract bacteria.   

Also, it is wise to avoid going into a pool or tub after a male waxing treatment, as chlorine and salt water can inflame the follicles that are still open from the wax session.

More Waxing Tips For Men

To help avoid issues such as ingrown hairs and bumps from folliculitis (inflammation of the follicle) it is important to keep the skin clean.  After back waxing, we recommend showering with cool water for the first 24 hours, after that you can use an anti-bacterial soap such as Dial. The last step is to apply aloe vera or cortisone cream. These creams can greatly reduce irritation while helping your skin to heal faster.  Last, 24 to 48 hours after your wax apply a topical no bump solution such as Tend Skin.  The salicylic acid in this product will help to avoid ingrown hairs and pimples that may occur after a wax.
