How long should your hair be to get the best results?
Your hair should be at least a quarter of an inch long prior to waxing. This will ensure the best results.
Is it ok to wax if you’re using topical creams on your face?
It is very important to pay close attention to what ingredients are in your skincare products prior to waxing. If you are using retin-a, any topical acne creams, glycolic or fruit based acids (AHA's), please wait two weeks after you discontinue use those products before waxing.
The following products are exfoliants and should not be used at least two weeks before waxing. As they are severe exfoliants which weaken skin. Sensitive skin is more vulnerable to lifting and during waxing.
Acne Medications, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Glycolic, Lactic), Oral Antibiotics, Topical Antibiotics, Retinol, Salicylic Acids, Any acid based products or Exfoliants should be avoided.
What if I have sensitive skin?
No Mo-Stache offers an aloe cream for you to apply post waxing. Its best to put the cream on the waxed area for a few days to help minimize any irritation. We also offer a facial razor as an alternative to waxing.
Should you protect your skin after waxing?
You should wear sunscreen everyday, but its even more important to use after you have waxed. Getting waxed is a deep exfoliation for the skin, so it leaves your skin more vulnerable to the sun.
