Does waxing hurt?
To be honest it does. A simple but often ignored fact is hair removal (of any kind!) can be a superficial “trauma” to the skin especially when you pull hair from the very root, it is normal for the skin to react in its own way. And this is why redness with mild itchiness after waxing is quite common, which may disappear within 24 – 48 hours.
One of our customers commented: The wax pulls out your hair so i wont say its painless and its stupid to assume it would be painless since we all have nerve endings near the surface of our skin. Though I can say that it is less painful than waxing with the fabric/paper strips.
An Advil or Ibuprofen(not aspirin) 30-45 minutes PRIOR to waxing can help minimize the pain if you have extremely low pain tolerance.
That being said, pain tolerance varies by person, so it could be an easy breeze (lucky you!) or it might be an unpleasant sting. But with each session it tends to hurt less, and become PAIN-FREE once you mastered the technique!
Can Lansley hard wax be applied on your face?
The answer is YES!All of Lansley hard wax can be melted at a low, skin-friendly temperature and thus is safe to use on the face. But prior to purchasing we want you to read this: If you are allergic to any of them: rosin, paraffin wax or coconut oil, we strongly advise you not to apply the hard wax unless you consult a doctor. Avoid using alcohol-based toners after waxing your face.
How do I switch from SHAVING to WAXING?
Mazel Tov! Your follicles will be hair-free for a much longer time. The key is to wait at least 3 to 4 weeks. Allow hair to grow in as a good quarter of an inch to an inch would be needed for a desirable result, which means your hair should be long enough to lay flat on your skin so that the wax would not struggle to get a good hold on the hairs to remove them!
Why should I EXFOLIATE before and after getting waxed?
A simple (and may be disgusting) fact is – we shed about 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells every minute. That’s why EXFOLIATION is definitely a proper way to go.
👉Exfoliate 24 hours prior to waxing will help remove dead skin cells, in this way you’ll be able to do a closer wax treatment!👉Post-wax exfoliation, however, is recommended to be done at least 24 hours after getting waxed. In fact, 2-3 days are sometimes preferred if your skin doesn’t fully calm itself from waxing, meaning there is still some slight redness or soreness. Bonus: Less ingrown hairs! An ingrown hair is usually the one that can’t find its way to come out of the skin and has to grow back right into it. With gentle, continual exfoliation, your hair would be guided to grow back in the CORRECT DIRECTION.
Less dead cell buildup=Less clogged pores=Less ingrown hairs!
Can I wax when I’m going to be a mommy??
1. Visiting a trained professional is much more advised during pregnancy. You are more likely to be taken good care of to have someone who can see and reach any area of your body.
2. Ask for a patch test before the treatment. Noticing how your skin would react just helps you learn about your pain threshold during pregnancy, while your skin may be more sensitive than usual.
3. From 12 weeks, through to 38 weeks is the usual suggested period for having an intimate wax.
4. With your doctor’s approval, take 2 Tylenol an hour before waxing so as to minimize discomfort.
Why is my hard wax so stringy?
Not enough TWIRLs can be the #1 reason if you are having wax strings when scooping the wax out of the warmer.
In that case, try to KEEP ROLLING the applicator until the string breaks. I know this sounds deceptively SIMPLE. But TWIRL is always the #1 secret weapon when it comes to WAXING.
If you are leaving wax strings behind right after spreading the wax onto skin, chances are the wax has not been set long enough on the skin, or the strip is applied unevenly, so different parts of the strip are drying down slower than others. To deal with it, try to apply a talc-free powder over the WAX strip after its laid, which can help speed up the drying process⚡️
