Since it’s time to get the pins out for the summer months (we hope!), here are some top tips to keep your legs looking their absolute best!
Tip 1: Exfoliate
Essential once a week and 24 hours before waxing. Ensure that you exfoliate on DRY skin as scrubbing in the shower does NO GOOD! Remember ladies your skin is waterproof and in order to remove the outer layer of dead cells you need to create friction and this can only be done on dry skin.
Ensure as you apply your scrub that you move in circular motion from the ankle area upwards. This stimulates the circulation of lymph throughout the body and also helps eliminate toxins – bonus!!
Exfoliating 24hrs before a waxing treatment ensures that any stubborn, short or even ingrown hairs are brought to the surface. This makes your treatment more successful and last longer.
Tip 2: Moisturise
You will notice that your skin will absorb your moisturiser much better once it has been exfoliated properly. Having gotten rid of the outer dead skin layer your moisturiser can now penetrate deeper into the skin and do its job.
Imagine applying your moisturiser on a layer of cling film over your skin and expecting results. This is what it is like if you don’t exfoliate!
