Cirépil wax encapsulates the hair, removing the hair from the root while leaving the skin undamaged.

what should I do before a wax

1. Let the hair grow

Shaving is bad news for the bikini line, so leave that rasor where it is (on the shop shelf, am I right?). Shaving leaves the skin vulnerable to ingrown hairs, as it cuts each hair at the follicle (instead of removing from beneath the skin). Leave your hair as it is and time your appointments accordingly – don’t worry if it is a little long once you’re on the waxing table, your therapist will be able to trim it.

2. Exfoliate (until the day)

You should gently exfoliate the area for around a week prior to your wax appointment to remove dead skin cells (and help prevent ingrowns post-salon trip). This will also help the wax to grab the hair – not skin – making for  a less painful pull. Skip harsh scrubs as the skin is sensitive, and avoid exfoliating all together on the day of your wax.​

3. Avoid coffee (and alcohol)

Though a large glass of vino may feel like the only way you’ll make it through you hot wax encounter, both alcohol and caffeine are stimulants. That means your skin will be extra sensitive to pain (even if your tipsy mind is wandering a little). Same goes for your period, wait until it’s finished before your appointment – that’s when your pain threshold is at its highest. ​

4. Wear something comfortable

Bring out the big pants, because the skin needs to breathe. Tight clothing (especially tighter materials), will trap heat and moisture against the skin. You may feel a little tender down below, so will 100% live to regret it if you wear skinny jeans. Slide into something breezy post-wax to give your skin all the room it needs to cool off.

5. Shower first

Obviously you want to feel *fresh* for your wax appointment, so it’s a good idea to pop in the shower before your salon trip. Post-wax, your therapist will recommend you don’t shower for 24 hours minimum as while the hair follicles are exposed, they’re more prone to infection and irritation (hot water will worsen that). So do the shower thing first. ​

6. Chill (and do you)

Relax. Breathe. Chill a little. Tensing up will result in a more painful wax, so do whatever you need pre-appointment to encourage that zen feeling (from reading a little Harry Potter, to kicking back with a packet of choccy digestives). Consider which style you’re going for too (here’s a breakdown in case you’re confused), but above all else, remember – it’s your bod. The hair can go, or it can stay put – your call. ​

the do's of post waxing care
  • Apply a Post-depilatory.

Post-depilatory lotions are the number one post-waxing care tip. Your esthetician will surely have this product available. However, if you are considering DIY waxing, make sure you get one, too. Post-depilatories have several functions: removing waxy residue, soothing the skin, and avoiding red bumps and ingrown hairs. Trifektive is a great option since it contains special ingredients that protect and help skin recover after waxing. In addition, it dramatically slows down hair growth, extending the time between waxing sessions. Keep in mind that your skin needs to go back to its original state, so why not help it with a product that restores its optimal pH. It enhances the skin’s brightness after waxing and has soothing and moisturizing properties.

  • Apply Cold Compresses.

Cold compresses work great at calming red skin and reducing the appearance of red bumps, irritation or inflammation. You can also massage an ice cube directly on the waxed skin. If you can’t bear this sensation, let the ice cube melt on a sponge puff and then compress your skin with it.

  • Consider Cool Gels.

Cool gels based on naturally calming ingredients like Aloe vera or tea tree oil can also help soothe freshly waxed skin. You can apply them regularly for a few days after your appointment to refresh and protect the area.

  • Keep the Clothing Loose and the Fabrics Natural.

Immediately after your waxing session, make sure you wear loose clothing. If you’ve just had a bikini or Brazilian, wear a fresh pair of comfortable undies. This is to avoid sweat and friction, which might increase the risk of irritation or infection. By the same token, choosing natural fibers like cotton will be much gentler on the skin than synthetics like spandex or polyester, which do not allow the skin to breathe properly.

  • Exfoliate and Moisturize at the Right Time.

Two to three days after waxing is the perfect time to exfoliate. Your pores will have closed and the skin will have recovered. Moisturize from the day or second day after your waxing appointment so as to avoid clogging your pores or exposing skin to chemicals and fragrances.

  • Use Antiseptic Creams or Hydrocortisone Creams.

If you do this under expert guidance, you will be able to keep inflammation, itching, irritation and rashes at bay.

  • Choose Only Reputed Brands for Specialized Waxing Aftercare.

You’re dealing with the largest organ in your body: your skin. It deserves high-quality care, do not risk it! Make sure you use only high-quality, professional-grade products administered or recommended by a specialist.

  • Do Not Touch Freshly Waxed Skin.

The natural oils on the skin can clog the pores, and the bacteria that are normally on your skin might increase the risk of infection. Resist the temptation to scratch or touch waxed areas if you want to avoid bumps or other adverse reactions.

  • Do Not Use Oily or Drying Skin Products Immediately.

This includes thick body butters, heavily scented or colored body washes, sprays, lotions, or deodorants. Vaseline and oily products can clog your open pores and cause bumps, while fragrances or colorants can increase the risk for irritations on sensitive, freshly waxed skin.

  • Do Not Pick on Ingrown Hairs.

If you notice ingrown hairs after waxing, leave them alone for at least 48 hours, then exfoliate the waxed area gently, focusing on the ingrowns. Afterward, you can apply an antiseptic cream. If exfoliation does not remove the ingrown, try a special ingrown hair lotion.

  • Do Not Expose Yourself to the Sun.

Make sure to wait at least 48 hours before sun exposure if you don’t want to run the risk of burns and scarring. Freshly waxed skin is very sensitive, and its outer protective layer has been stripped; therefore, sun exposure, in this case, could be more damaging than usual. Your skin might also develop hyperpigmentation in the waxed area if you expose yourself to the sun without any protection, which brings us to a very common reminder: wear sunscreen at all times. You can choose a light one after waxing if you’ll be out in the sun at all after waxing.

  • Do Not Go Swimming.

Wait at least 48 hours to swim in the beach or the pool after waxing. Salt water might sensitize your skin even further and cause bumps on freshly waxed skin. The chlorine in pool water can be harsh on sensitive skin as well, apart from the fact that swimming pools can carry bacteria that might unleash an infection. 

  • Do Not Get Involved in Physical Activity.

Not doing any exercise at all just because you’ve just waxed may sound extreme, but it is just a preventive measure. Sweat (and the bacteria that can thrive in sweaty skin), as well as friction, might cause more damage than good on your sensitized skin, so why take the chance? If you do work out, keep it light. Avoid sex for at least 48 hours after intimate waxing as well.

  • Do Not Schedule a Chemical Peeling Appointment.

Waxing has already removed the superficial layer of skin cells. Peeling would only strip those layers more deeply, over-sensitizing the skin and increasing the risk of skin damage in the form of irritation, drying or infection. Wait until your skin has normalized completely, that is, at least 36 to 72 hours.
