Facials are good for you because no matter how well you take care of your skin at home, estheticians are licensed professionals who have stronger products which are more beneficial to your skin than what you use in your daily skincare routine. Over time, dead skin builds up and oil gets trapped in your pores. Facials help to exfoliate the dead skin and extract the oil and any other impurities that may be in your skin. Not to mention all the anti aging benefits facials have as well! Super relaxing too!
The hair needs to be at least a half of an inch in order for the wax to take it out sufficiently. If the hair is too short, the wax cannot catch it, and many hairs get left behind. To be safe, the hair should be grown out a solid 2 weeks after shaving. DO NOT TRIM!!!
Everyone is different but after 2-3 consecutive waxes, you should be able to go a solid 2-3 weeks with no regrowth. Sometimes after the first wax you will see hair only after 1 week which is normal. There are 3 different layers of hair which is why it takes 2-3 weeks to see the real result of the length of time each individual can go between waxes.
Again, everyone is different but the usual time frame between waxes is 3-6 weeks. After your first 2-3 waxes it will be evident how often you will need to be waxed.
To wax or to shave is personal preference but in my opinion, waxing is the way to go! With waxing, every time you get waxed, the hair grows back less and less and thinner and thinner! You only need to wax monthly at the most opposed to everyday or every other day with shaving. When the hair grow back, the skin isn't itchy and it doesn't get irritated. No razor burn either!
