Helping you to help yourself…

By now, more and more women are realizing the benefits of waxing over shaving: much less irritation to the skin, less redness, fewer bumps, fewer (if any) ingrown hairs, and of course, the hair stays gone much longer. HOWEVER, none of this will occur if you think there is nothing on your end that needs to be done. Simply coming in once a month for a wax, without doing any skin care maintenance at home, can and usually does result in the same effects as if you had been shaving. Now, some of you are lucky. Some of you, no matter if you jump into a hot lava pit naked, or rake a fork up and down your bikini line, you still end up having great skin. Well this blog is not for you. I also wouldn’t run around advertising the fact that your skin is awesome. But for the rest of us, it is ESSENTIAL you follow some somple guidelines to keeping your skin smooth and sassy between your waxing treatments.


1) Daily, leave-on (not a cleanser) BHA (aka salicylic acid) unless you are allergic to aspirin or aspirin products. This gets into your pores, and cleans them out.

2)Twice-a-week scrub in the shower after you cleanse with a non-bar soap product (bar-soaps can be very drying due to the process of saponification.) This helps to lift up and off the flaky dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.

Ergo, if BOTH pores and surface are cleaned, exfoliated, and FREE of blockades, then your hair can get out (no ingrowns!), and your oil can escape, too! (no red bumps, cysts, or break outs!) Everything is growing out as it should!

Clean skin is happy skin…
