Wax On , Wax Off Ouch!

Its that time of year when we make the preparations to head to the spa , for the dreaded bikini wax . Most women go native for the winter . Im going to give you a couple of tips to help you get through your first or next waxing .You should use these in prep for any waxing be it to face , pits , legs or down there . Can't lie it hurts but this will make it a little better .

Menstral Cycle :
  • Avoid waxing a couple days before and during ,
  • Your skin is more sensitive and pain may be more intense.
  • Redness may stay a little longer .

Efoiliate :
  • Even Though exfoliation can help in the process doing it too soon before service can , burn and harm skin .
  • Only 24-hours before and after is recomended .
Cosmetics :
  • Try to remove all cosmetics when getting a facial wax

Trim :
  • Trim hair in bikini area to a quater of an inch prior . It helps the esthetician get clean lines .

Communicate :
  • Talk to your esthetician . somtimes a another type of wax such as a creme wax or hard wax with no strips may be less harsh to you 
  •  .Keeping an open line of communacation is key .
  • Discuss any skin sensitivity issues or contraindications .
  • Follow the after wax care .

Baby Oil :
  • Removes Most Wax . So if you are doing it your self , or find some stray wax after ( which is not acceptable and you should never ) If you do this can help.

Moisturizers :
  • After help calm your skin , I've found tea tree oil to be very good .

  • It dosent take very long . Breath and scream if you like , freak out the person ahead of you . No be nice but if you need too scream

 NOTE : make sure the place you get , your service . Is up to date with state licences . Follows good sanitation.

PTB Spring Reboot : Skincare

Clensing ( washing your face )   Cleansers : Cethaphil , Phisoderm, 
Splash warm water on your faceDispense product on your palmWith your finger tips , use upward and outward motions to apply product Once you scrubed your face . rinse it away with warm waterTake a towel and pat face dry 

Toner : Is debated in the beauty industry, I personally think it does a great job getting rid of excess dirt and restoring PH balance in your skin. If you want to skip it , Ill leave it up to you . Burts Bee's Toner ,witch hazel are my favorites though what you have on hand is good.
Wet a cotton ball with warm waterapply toner to cotton ball Using upward and outward motions Avoid eye contact 
Exfoliate : This is extremly important , you only have to do it 2x's a week. Since you shave it is a form of exfoliation your doing it already . Exfoliation is extremly important.  St Ives Apricot Scrub is my favorite  wet your face with warm water Take a quarter size amout of product apply it too yout finger tip…
