Can you get waxed with sensitive skin? The short answer is yes! Absolutely. There are just a few things you need to keep top of mind when booking your wax:
Find an Experienced Pro
It’s crucial to find a waxing professional who understands the needs of sensitive skin and how to treat it. At Waxxpot, every single one of our Waxx Specialists is here for you and your sensitive skin. They are highly experienced, have seen it all, and can suggest products and aftercare tips specific to your skin type. Waxxpot’s proprietary soft wax has no heavy perfumes and includes mineral oil to aid in gentle removal – perfect for those with skin sensitivities. (And it’s vegan and cruelty-free!)
Tell It Like It Is
Communication is key. At the start of your visit, make sure to express any concerns and inform your Waxx Specialist about reactions you’ve had in the past and what triggered them. Ask any and all questions you have – your comfort is our priority! (That, and giving you impeccably smooth skin, of course.)
Pre-Wax Care Is Key
A few days before your waxing appointment, it’s a good idea to exfoliate your skin gently to remove dead cells and help prevent ingrown hairs. IMPORTANT: Avoid exfoliating the day before or the day of your wax to minimize any potential irritation. Reschedule if you have a breakout, broken skin or any type of irritation in the area you’d like to wax, and wait until skin is completely healed. Also skip any lotions or creams the day of your appointment, as they can interfere with the wax’s grip.
Post-Wax Care Is Just As Important
Post-wax TLC is essential to keeping your sensitive skin feeling fabulous. At Waxxpot, we apply our aftercare blend SOOTHE immediately after waxing to calm and hydrate skin. Following your visit, stay away from hot showers, saunas, and intense workouts for a day or two to allow your skin to recover. We also recommend incorporating our SMOOTH Exfoliant and PREVENT Ingrown Hair Serum into your skincare routine.
Most people with sensitive skin can get waxed regularly with amazing results. Just remember to listen to your skin and observe how it reacts during and after the waxing process. Choose the right waxing professional, use gentle products, and give your skin the tender loving care it deserves so you can embrace smooth, glowing skin with confidence!
