Do a patch test before use.
If you haven’t already, test out both the wax-strips and post-wax cloths on your inner forearm before doing a full-on wax session elsewhere. This way, you can check for any potential reactions to either products before waxing on a more visible part of your body.
Avoid multiple pulls (at first).
If you are new to our wax products, only pull the strip off once a session, per area. As you get used to waxing at home, you will better know how your skin reacts and can judge whether it can handle multiple pulls a session.
Exfoliate before waxing.
Remove dead skin cells to prevent post-wax ingrowns by using a warm, wet washcloth to gently exfoliate beforehand, or, if you like, use a scrub (in that case, wait 24-48 hours before waxing to let your skin recover).
Again, your pores are open and vulnerable post-wax. Do not touch your freshly waxed skin or rub it on a pillow or other surface. Keep your hair out of your face and don’t apply any makeup or lotion right afterwards.
