You’ve got the professional quality Waxxxie products; now get some advice from the salon professionals. You will be waxing like a Salon Pro in no time if you follow these tips for waxing preparation, technique and post-waxing care.

  • Always make sure your skin is clean, dry and free of oils or moisturizers prior to waxing. Exfoliate 24 hours prior to waxing to remove any dead skin cells.
  • In hot or humid conditions, lightly dust the skin with talcum powder before your treatment, this absorbs excess sweat and moisture to ensure that the wax adheres to the hair you wish to remove.
  • Test the wax temperature by applying a small patch to the inside of your wrist. If the wax doesn’t spread smoothly, it is too cold. If the wax feels too hot, wait a few minutes while your wax cools to avoid burning your skin.
  • For Waxxxie Aquawax and Aquawax Roll on Kit always apply thinly, so that the hairs are still visible underneath the wax. Hold the spatula edge on a 45° angle to the skin for the best results.
  • For Waxxxie Salon Wax always apply in a thick oval shape. Hairs should not be visible underneath the wax for the best result.
  • Always ensure you apply wax in the direction of hair growth and then remove it in the opposite direction of hair growth as close to the skin as possible.
  • When removing wax, always ensure the skin is taut, either by tightening your muscles or by holding the skin firmly with one hand.
  • Immediately after removing the wax, apply pressure to the waxed area to help relieve the discomfort.
  • Use tweezers to remove stray hairs after waxing.
  • If you suffer from ingrown hairs, irritated skin or pimples, treat the problem with the Bump eRaiser Ingrown Hair Treatment Range. Visit for more information.
