Do you want to know more about exfoliation before and after hair removal? Because it is normal to want to pamper your body by preparing your skin for a waxing session.
The main purpose of exfoliation is to enjoy soft skin and prevent dehydration. Moreover, exfoliating your skin allows you to obtain a perfect result for your waxing session, so why deprive yourself?
So, do you know how many times a week you should exfoliate your skin? And how to choose the most appropriate exfoliator for you and your skin type?
Why exfoliate before / after waxing?
The importance of regular exfoliation is to benefit from good hair growth. Because yes, hair must grow back properly: it must find its way out - i.e., break through the skin - as easily as possible.
Exfoliation of the epidermis therefore serves to rid the skin of dead cells. This allows the skin to regenerate quickly, resulting in a smooth, soft, and radiant skin.
When you regularly exfoliate your pubic area, for example, it limits the appearance of ingrown hairs. These little red pimples can be a real nuisance, as they are especially painful on this intimate area.
If they appear on the sides of the pubic area (the so-called bikini line), where the elastic band of the briefs rests, this is a signal from your body.
It warns you that this part of the body needs special care. Indeed, this is a particularly enclosed area, the skin macerates all day without taking air. Ingrown hairs love to settle there unless you scrub gently and regularly.
Do you want to space out your bikini waxing sessions?
Use a wax specially adapted to bikini waxing or try our ' Maple' wax, which slows down hair growth.
For the face, we recommend exfoliating once a week to give your face a radiant and shiny complexion.
As you will have understood, setting up a regenerating skin care ritual is beneficial for your skin, and it also allows you to improve the quality of your hair removal session.
Exfoliation should not be done daily. This ritual keeps your skin looking young, but your body won't be able to withstand this treatment every day.
After this beauty treatment, you must nourish your skin to allow it to regenerate in the best conditions, especially if you plan to remove hair in the following days.
As mentioned before, the skin perceives exfoliation and hair removal as a mini aggression.
Therefore, whatever the part of your body, exfoliation should be carried out at least 24 hours before the waxing session. This will give your skin time to recover. And whether you use a home-made scrub or a store-bought exfoliating product, the result will be the same.
Finally, the facial scrub should be done once a week, preferably in the evening. This way, the skin of your pretty face will benefit from the virtues of your nourishing cream all night long.
The same goes for your pubic area, as the skin is very thin. In addition, it cannot benefit from maximum ventilation during the day because clothes compress it...
For the other parts of your body, exfoliate twice a week to a maximum of 3 times.

*It is vital to choose a treatment appropriate to your skin type and the area you wish to remove hair. For the same reasons, you should choose an exfoliator according to your skin type.
