WHEN the weather was getting sunnier, hair removal becomes an issue.

I recently came across Lycon wax. It’s originally from Australia and it a pain-free wax, with great results .

Waxing is a great way to remove unwanted hair. Waxing is recommended for people of all ages and both genders. It is advised that people start getting wax treatments aged around 18, as in time hair growth will lessen with regular waxing, anyone can get it done, regardless of age.

Waxing can last up to a month, but it’s also much more permanent—over time it thins the hair so less grows back. Bonus: It exfoliates the skin as well, leaving you feeling silky smooth.

Preparing for a Wax

It is recommend to use an exfoliating scrub the day before and I advise not to apply body lotion the day of the wax.

Let your therapist know about any allergies or medical conditions you have. Waxing is not suitable if you have been using Retin A or Ro-Accutane within the last six months.

Some treatments will use aromatherapy oils so make your therapist knows of any allergies.

Choose a salon using a high quality wax – it makes for a different experience.

Wax regularly

You will have far better results as your hair will gradually weaken, growth will appear finer and a lot of clients will experience a reduction in hair growth over time.

Exfoliate the area regularly (with a body scrub or bath mitts). Not only will your skin feel great, but this will also help prevent in-grown hairs.

During the wax

Choose an experienced therapist. Therapists have lots of experience so chat to them beforehand if you have any queries.

Also, experienced waxing therapists will ensure a professional experience – they wax all day so have heard and seen every question you may have.

Good therapists will also work efficiently, ensuring skin is taut to minimise discomfort a much better idea than trying it yourself.

After-care advice

Your hair follicles will be open after your treatment, so it is important to avoid the following for 24 hours after your wax:

• Excessive perspiration and friction

• Sauna / Steam room

• Hot bath / Shower / Swimming

• UV exposure

• Fake tan / Body Lotion / Perfume

• Tight clothing

• Chemical peels or microdermabrasion.

One problem that people have is ingrowing hairs and Lycon have a great after care for this.

Make sure you go for a patch test before you wax to ensure you are not allergic to the wax.

All that is left to do is enjoy the Summer  – hair free!
