For a successful waxing procedure, there is a need to exfoliate your skin. This will help in removing dead skin so that the wax will stick on your hair and not your skin. Exfoliating will also make the waxing process less painful and fast as well.
If this will be your first waxing procedure, you may not know the best way to exfoliate. Here is a guide on the best exfoliating methods before your waxing.
If you want to keep your exfoliating process simple, you can use a rough cloth. All you need is to take the cloth, soak it in warm water, and then use it to rub your skin. To make the process more effective, make small circles as you and ensure that you don’t leave any part of the skin untouched. You should use the pressure that is most comfortable for your skin to avoid suffering from skin irritation before the waxing.
The greatest benefit of using a rough cloth is that you will not suffer from the side effects of using chemicals on your face. If your skin is sensitive, this is the best method for you and will also be affordable if you are working on a budget.
Exfoliating Bar Soap
There are some exfoliating soaps that are made from textured products such as oats, sugar or microbeads, among other products that you can use to scrub your body. The bar soaps have a rough texture and will be very effective in removing dead skin, dirt, and debris that would have made waxing difficult.
You can purchase an exfoliating soap that has moisturizing ingredient as it will be more beneficial to your skin. If you are looking for an exfoliating process that is fast and effective, exfoliating soaps are the way to go.
Gentle Sugar Scrub
You will need half cup sugar, half cup olive oil, and some few drops of essential oils to make the sugar scrub. Once you mix all the ingredients together, you should store the mixture in an air-tight jar and only use a small amount that will be enough for the exfoliation. You should rinse off the skin after using the sugar scrub to get your skin ready for the waxing process.
There are various types of essential oils and you can choose the one that works perfectly for your skin. If you will be waxing often, you should experiment on different types and settle for the one that works best for you.
Citrus Salt Scrub
To make a citrus salt scrub, you will need 1 cup of sea salt, one cup olive oil, four orange slices, and four lemon slices. Put the above slices in your blender and turn it on for about 5 minutes and your scrub will be ready!
When taking your shower, you will use your citrus scrub just the way you use other scrubs. It is important to note that this scrub can make your skin sensitive which will not be very good for the waxing process. For best results, use it one week before going for your waxing appointment.
To make an oat scrub, you will need one cup fine oatmeal, half cup olive oil, and a quarter cup of brown sugar. For best results, you should grind your oats using a food processor at home instead of buying already ground oatmeal. When mixing the ingredients, ensure that it is not too dry for ease of applying on your skin. Massage the skin using the mixture for best results and then rinse it off.
Oatmeal scrub is perfect for you if you have sensitive skin but still wants to exfoliate.
If you have no time to make your own exfoliating scrub, you can purchase one at your local store. You should look out for the brand that you can use on the entire body and not for the face only. It is also important to consider the nature of your skin especially if you have sensitive skin.
Exfoliating is important when waxing as it will make the process much easier and less painful. It will ensure that wax will stick onto the hair and not on the skin.
