Facial hair makes many people feel insecure. You can get rid of it easily by waxing. Facial waxing is very popular and helps you to get silky smooth skin. Although many people try facial waxing at home, you should avoid this practice if you are a first-timer. Instead, you should seek professional help. Blushing Beauty Salon is one of the best places you can visit in Florida for a facial wax. It prioritizes a safe and sanitary practice and all procedures are conducted by professional estheticians.
What does a full facial wax include at Blushing Beauty Salon?
As the name suggests, facial waxing is waxing your face. If you have hair anywhere on your face, it can be removed during facial waxing. However, a full facial wax involves waxing hair safely from the following areas:
Eyebrows are most commonly waxed during facial waxing. Waxing them timely helps to maintain the perfect shape and prevent them from becoming thick and untamed. However, there is no fixed rule about how often you should wax your eyebrows. It strictly depends on their thickness. Most people prefer waxing their eyebrows once a month to ensure they do not appear unruly.
Due to genetics or hormonal imbalances, hair can grow on the upper lip. Although it is completely normal, it makes many women feel insecure. You should never allow something so frivolous to affect your confidence. The problem can easily be taken care of by removing the hair. Always opt for waxing over shaving to get rid of it. Over time, your upper lip hair growth will reduce and your upper lip will start appearing lighter.
Just like hair growth is normal on the upper lip, it is normal on the chin as well. It occurs due to hormonal changes in the body. Getting rid of this unwanted hair growth on the chin is easy with waxing. Although hair plucking can help you to get rid of it, there are chances of missing a few. As a result, you might have to visit the salon for hair plucking frequently. Waxing is a more efficient and effective procedure.
If you have never waxed your nose, it may seem like a traumatizing experience. However, it is not as painful as it seems. Professionals at Blushing Beauty Salon are trained to safely perform the procedure so that you do not feel pain. Also, there are no health risks associated with it.
Mistakes you should avoid after facial waxing
Facial waxing is a very simple process and does not cause pain. However, there are a few post-waxing restrictions that you must keep in mind to ensure your skin does not feel irritated. Here are they:
Avoid exposing your skin to heat
Waxing irritates your skin. Exposing your waxed skin to heat can further affect it. Your skin will turn red and small bumps may appear. From a warm shower to going out in the sun, everything that can expose your skin to heat should be avoided. However, this restriction is only for a day and you can get back to your regular lifestyle the next day.
Avoid swimming pools
Just like the heat is bad for your skin after waxing, chlorinated water can affect your waxed skin as well. Going for a swim can irritate your skin. Hence, you should avoid swimming pools for 24 hours after getting waxed.
Never apply face scrub after waxing
You should never apply a face scrub after waxing. Irrespective of how mild or gentle the face scrub is, applying it can cause irritation. Avoid face scrub for 3 to 4 days at least. However, make sure that you clean your face with water properly.
Skin care tips post waxing
Apply sunscreen to your face
As mentioned earlier, you must not expose your waxed skin to heat. However, it may be difficult to avoid going out in the sun completely. This is why applying sunscreen on the face is important. When your skin is left sensitive after waxing, just apply sunscreen to avoid skin damage. Consider always carrying one with you for a few days after facial waxing. In case you are not carrying one to the salon while getting your face waxed, the professionals will apply some on your face.
Soothe your skin with aloe vera gel
If you notice redness or small bumps on your skin, you should consider applying aloe vera gto your face. It will heal your skin faster and provide relief from any burning sensation. There are plenty of aloe vera gel products available in the market that you can buy. However, freshly sliced aloe vera leaf will do the trick as well.
Apply ice to your face
Applying ice cubes to your face can help to reduce redness as well. Also, it will help to close the pores. You can consider taking a cool shower to reduce redness as well. However, it should not feel very cold.
Get rid of redness with cooled tea bags
It may sound strange but applying cooled used tea bags to your eyebrows and upper lip can reduce redness. Just keep them in the freezer for 10 minutes before applying them and gently dab them on the affected areas. Continue it for 15 minutes and all the redness will disappear.
Can you wax your face at home?
A lot of people wax their faces at home. There are many DIY techniques available on the internet that you can try as well. However, you will have to be careful as all of them might not be effective. Also, you might encounter a lot of difficulties when waxing your face for the first time. For instance, you might end up creating a mess while preparing everything. Further, there are chances of mishaps. The risk of burning your face is one is the wax is too hot. You might accidentally end up removing more hair than you wanted leaving one eyebrow thinner than the other. To avoid these or any risks, it is always better to visit reputed salons like Blushing Beauty Salon.
