Do not apply any body lotion / deodorant to the area to be waxed.
If you have a sunburn, you cannot wax that area.
If you are on some medication – you would need to discuss it with me, as in some cases waxing cannot be done. G.P referral is a must.

Dry brushing the waxed area with mitt or loafer before the shower is essential.

Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours.

Failing to grow out the skin, the hairs curl inside the follicle underneath the skin and the resulting foreign body reaction causes an unsightly infectious bump. Both women and men suffer from ingrown hairs.
