The Difference between Salon and Home Waxing

Waxing is quick, easy and efficient method that offers long-lasting results. It involves getting rid of unwanted hair from the body with the help of wax. The hair is removed from the root which gives you longer-lasting results than shaving. When it comes to waxing you have two options: you can either go to a salon and have a beautician doing it for you, or simply do waxing at home. Irrespective of the method you choose, waxing need not be a tedious task. Let’s see the efficiency of both salon and self-waxing. You might get a tip or two on how to keep those unruly hairs at bay.

Beauty Spa Benefits

Beauty spas are designed in a way that they can pamper you and at the same time fulfill all your aesthetic need – including the removal of undesirable hair. Spas afford you with an intimate, friendly and luxurious space where you are treated like absolute royalty by a professionally-trained beautician, for a nominal amount of money of course. In salons, you can rest assured knowing that your waxing is being done by a beautician with ample experience! There’s something really satisfying about seeing your legs silky smooth as you leave the salon. Your confidence is sky rocketing, you feel attractive and you’re all set to make a stellar impression wearing that new little black dress!

Why Home Waxing?

Waxing at home is a blessing in disguise for anyone who is time-limited and budget-conscious. Veet can help you wax sitting at home with our wide range of hair removal products. If you don’t have much time in hand, Veet Cold Wax Strips are exceptional. They come with Cool gel wax, that give you up to 28 days of smoothness. All you need to do is Peel-Apply-Pull. Easy, right?

DIY Waxing

Beauticians will get you ready for a wax by cleaning and disinfecting the required body part. You can replicate the same in your bathroom with the help of water, soap, and although not a compulsion, disinfectant wipes. Once your skin has dried up, apply the wax and remove small portions of hair as you go along. If you’re concerned about pain, it’s best to take a deep breath before you rip off the strip or hard wax from your skin. This vintage salon trick helps to keep your mind off pain for few moments. Another idea is to apply your hand on the freshly waxed area. The pressure would help ease the pain, and if you have gone to a professional in the past, you would realize that the beautician has used this technique before.

Effective Waxing

With waxing, hair is pulled straight out of the root. Beauticians know that the hair will grow quicker if they remove the hair simply from above the skin. When waxing at home, it’s crucial for you to check your Veet Strips or Stripless wax to check for hair follicle roots which tells you that you have removed all of the hair.

Post-Wax Care

It’s always pinches a little after waxing but it tends to vanish quickly. You might have seen your beautician applying cream to your skin post-wax. You have to follow the same rule when you are doing waxing by yourselves. Make sure you apply a skin-soothing gel that includes Aloe Vera to give your skin a healing and protective barrier.

You can end up being your own skincare-expert overnight with the right ingredients and know how. Keep in mind that like any beautician – you should not try and rush the process of waxing. Start with lighting some scented candles, play soft music and most of all - relax and enjoy the feeling!
