Hair Removal Tips 

get ready for the summer

One hair can make a big difference in how you look and feel, especially since you’re going to be showing off more skin this summer. European Wax Center’s Chief Wax Expert Melanie Gilliland offers the following tips to keep your hair contained:

  • Never tweeze ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs would be much less of an issue if they were left alone and treated with an ingrown hair serum or ingrown hair wipes. Picking ingrown hairs makes them 10 times worse and can scar the skin. If the hair is partially outside of the skin and you can easily grab it with tweezers without breaking skin or digging in the least, feel free to remove it. If it requires digging, popping or squeezing, hide your tweezers and leave it alone. 
  • Wax on a schedule. If you do this without shaving, your waxes become easier over time. The most effective way to reduce discomfort is to wax on a schedule (approximately every 3-4 weeks), which will also help accelerate results such as hair thinning and growing in more sparsely. Waxing too often (when the hair is too short) will actually be more painful. If the hair is too long, it indicates that you have waited too long and now the hair will have had more time to root itself.

Banish ingrown hairs

Make banishing bumps and ingrown hairs disappear quickly and easily while visibly helping to slow the regrowth of hair between waxes with convenient, single-use Smooth Me Ingrown Hair Wipes. These will help to nip those pesky ingrown hairs anyplace, anytime. They are portable wipes that are infused with alpha and beta hydroxy acids, and prevent bumps when used daily (twice daily for existing breakouts).

Say bye, bye to dead skin

You can wave goodbye to dry, dead skin and accelerate cell renewal and prevent ingrown hairs by helping keep hair follicles clear after waxing with Reveal Me Body Exfoliating Gel. Naturally derived fruit enzymes eliminate dry, dull surface cells and support natural cell turnover, and Comfort Blend calms, nourishes and restores the skin. While it’s gentle enough for daily use, you should use it three times a week to help maintain beautiful skin.

Give your skin a radiant glow
