Pre-tan waxing

2 Min Read Wednesday 1st June 2016

Wax does two things:

  1. Removes hair from the root, which means it takes longer for it to grow back than it does with other forms of hair removal, like shaving or epilating.
  2. Takes off the dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin, revealing the fresh skin cells beneath.  This makes the skin feel super-smooth and soft for weeks!

Both of these fantastic benefits make waxing the perfect pre-tan treatment because it preps the skin for the smooth application of tanner and also helps a spray tan to last longer.

Offer your clients a complete skincare package that combines a waxing treatment with a follow-up spray tan session the next day to create an indulgent summer offer. Clients will love treating their skin to a gorgeous glow and waxing beforehand will ensure that their golden colour lasts as long as possible. This is because they won’t need to shave for weeks afterwards — shaving can reduce the lifespan of a tan by stripping away the colour and can also irritate the skin and cause razor burn on delicate areas like the bikini line and underarms.

Just remember that you’ll need to leave at least 24 hours between treatments to ensure that any open pores that appear on the skin following a waxing treatment have closed up (if you apply sunless tanner immediately after waxing it can lead to an uneven or dotty finish). Packed with natural extracts including basil oil, echinacea and soothing aloe vera, post-wax√Ǭ†Cooling Creme calms and softens the skin after waxing and helps to close up the pores. It also boasts an uplifting peppermint fragrance so your clients will leave your salon feeling refreshed and rested.
