Benefits of Waxing in the Winter
Are so many benefits of waxing in the winter. Is one of the best solutions to avoid allergies and skin blemishes. This is because the low sun exposure will minimize the risk of damage to the region affected by the waxing procedure.
Therefore, if you are looking for the perfect time to schedule your waxing, you should definitely consider the coldest times of the year.
Check out the blog below for the benefits of waxing in the winter and necessary precautions for waxing procedures this season.
Advantages of Hair Removal in Winter
With the drop in temperatures, our bodies are more covered and it is common for the demand with waxing to decrease a little. After all, they won’t be so exposed, will they?
But that’s where the big mistakes lies. Yes, in face our bodies are less exposed, but that happens precisely because of the little to none sun exposure. And, as everyone knows, the sun is one of the worst enemies for waxed skin.
Therefore, this time of the year is one of the best to resort to aesthetic procedures. Here are some of the main reasons:
- Decreases the risk of blemishes
If there is something women dread even thinking about, it is blemishes on their skin, isn’t it? And it is during the hottest seasons of the year that we are most susceptible to them.
Moreover, constant and intense exposure to the sun can be very harmful to the skin, especially when it is not properly protected. In other words, to protect the skin and avoid blemishes, it will be necessary to be very disciplined regarding the application (and reapplication) of sunscreen.
But that doesn’t mean that during the winter it is not necessary to use sunscreen, right? Sunscreen is indispensable everyday of the year. However, the incidence of UV rays is lower during the winter, so the chances of blemishes due to sun exposure will be lower.
- Faster recovery
Sun exposure and high temperatures delay the recovery of sensitized skin after a wax. Because during warmer times of the year, our skin is more sensitive and it is more common for waxed skin to suffer from itching, burning and redness.
Therefore, one of the benefit of waxing in the winter is that your skin will not be exposed to the sun as often, or as intensely. In this way, the skin will be able to recover much more quickly than it would in seasons with high temperatures.
Necessary Care for Waxing in Winter
Your skin will react in a specific way in each season of the year. In summer, it can be oilier and needs intense sun protection, but in the fall or winter, it can be drier.
Consequently, you need to adapt your care routine to each of these needs. In conclusion, if you are going to have your hair removal in the winter, you should pay attention to the following items:
- Intense skin hydration
Low temperatures contribute to skin dryness. Therefore, it is very important to intensify the skin’s hydration during this time.
A good tip is to add the Hydrojelly Mask after your wax, because in addition to hydrating the skin, it will leave your skin smoother, softer, and free from redness.
Because if your skin is very dry, it may peel before or after waxing. We recommend that you use moisturizers and oils that will restore hydration to the region (both before and after the procedure).
Oh, and don’t forget to drink plenty of water too!
- Avoid hot baths
In winter, due to the colder climate, people tend to shower with the highest water temperature. That’s why this can be harmful to the skin, since the natural layer of fat in the dermis is removed by the high temperature of the water. Therefore, avoid very hot and long baths.
- Exfoliate the skin
Exfoliation will thin the most superficial layer of skin and contribute to the reduction of dead cells. Soon, it will leave the skin smoother, providing a more effective and less aggressive wax session.
We recommend that you exfoliate the area three days before your wax appointment.
Beware of acid treatments and peelings
Although the acid treatments and peeling are common in winter for the same reason as waxing. However, these procedures cannot be performed close to time of wax, either before or after the procedure.
In conclusion, we recommend that you wait at least 15 days between one procedure and another, and if possible even longer, to ensure that the skin is fully recovered.
