Waxing & Exfoliation - Six Steps to Smoother Skin | Nad's Hair Removal Blog

Waxing at home? It’s essential you exfoliate first.

Why? Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and debris, clearing the way for the wax to really grip the unwanted hair and remove it efficiently and thoroughly. What’s more, it is the best way to prevent ingrown hairs from appearing. Exfoliation also ensures a smoother-than-smooth result by boosting skin circulation, supporting cell regeneration and improving skin tone. And if you’re tanning for summer, exfoliating and waxing prior to applying tan will ensure a smoother, streak-free golden glow.

You can choose from either chemical exfoliation, using a product that relies on Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids or enzymes, or mechanical methods, such as a loofah, scrub, or salts, both of which work to remove dead cell and debris build up, effectively preventing ingrown hairs. You’ll also find that your wax will have a better grip to grasp and remove hair even as short as 1.5mm. This means you can look forward to waxing and hair removal that lasts longer and a smooth base for tanning products and make-up application.

Six Easy Steps to Smoother Skin for Summer

  1. Always exfoliate before waxing, You can use a loofah, exfoliating glove or body scrub.
  2. Keep your skin bump-free. For super smooth results, try Nad’s Ingrow Solution after waxing, which will help to keep ingrown hairs away and maintain skin soft all summer.
  3. If using a fake tan, never wax and apply fake tan on the same day – wait for 24 hours for your skin to settle. Only ever apply fake tan to clean, smooth skin that is free from products, such as oils and moisturisers.
  4. Protect your skin from the sun. Avoid redness and irritation by waiting at least 24 hours before exposing freshly-waxed skin to extreme direct sunlight and don’t forget SPF!
  5. Moisturising with an unscented product a few hours after applying fake tan (once the formula has had a good amount of time to dry) will help your tan develop beautifully. This is also important after sun exposure to address drying skin.
  6. Moisturise more and regularly! After each shower to maintain that golden glow and keep your skin beautifully hydrated throughout the season.
