10 Aug 4 Tips You Should Know When Getting Your Back Waxed
Waxing is the most effective way to manage back hair and keep it under control. It removes hair from the root, so the results can last up to six weeks. Do not do this at home. Go to a professional who’s trained. Here’s how it works:
- A back wax can range from $35-$100. This isn’t unreasonable considering the aesthetician takes careful precautions to minimize pain, such as taking time to cut the hair short.
- To prepare for a back wax, exfoliate with products containing salicylic acid, white willow bark, or glycolic acid.
- Avoid sun exposure for at least 24 hours before and after a wax.
- Expect some pain. It’ll hurt but it does get easier if you continue to use waxing as your main method of back hair removal.
Don’t wax the day before vacation. Give it 10-14 days before, because chances are if you’re not used to it, you may be sensitive and could break out. Make sure whoever waxes your back does not rub alcohol before or after. Ask for a moisturizer afterwards, as this will help soothe your skin.
