Do’s & Dont’s

Do

  • Cleanse skin using mild ph skin wash product (we recommend tea tree body wash)
  • Moisturise your skin daily (we recommend teat tree body lotion)
  • Exfoliate regularly using either an exfoliating mitt or exfoliating glove (we recommend synthetic exfoliating mitts or gloves)
  • Have ingrown hairs removed professionally

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Use recommended ingrown hair removal products for problem areas
  • Use only recommended mineral make up on skin 24 hours after waxing facial area
