Exfoliate between waxes

Exfoliating our skin on a weekly basis is a must. Our skin does have a natural shredding process, but sometimes, depending on our skin type, we need to help the process along. This is especially important when it comes to waxing & shaving.

The reason why exfoliating in-between our waxing/shaving routine is so important, is because this will help to prevent or minimize ingrown hairs.

Ingrown hairs appear when the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin. This can occur due to the type of hair you may have (eg curly or coarse hair) or a build up of sebum (oil) in the hair follicle.

Regular exfoliation will buff away dead skin cells & avoid clogged pores which can cause the hair to become ingrown. Exfoliating once or twice a week is all you need to keep those ingrown hairs under control. And don’t forget, keeping your skin hydrated is also very important, so make sure you apply moisturiser every day.
