Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface, and has been used for many years to help maintain smooth skin.
It's easy to bypass one of the most important steps of post-wax care - exfoliation. It does take time, it does require a couple of "tools", but it's SO worth it! Not only will you have extra silky skin but you'll also stave off those pesky little bumps known as ingrown hairs.
Clients ask me "Why should I exfoliate my skin between my waxing services?" Because exfoliation of the skin is one of the key steps to avoiding ingrown hairs. Exfoliation is needed to remove the dead skin cells, dirt, and clogging oils off the surface of your skin. This will allow the new hairs to grow out easily without curling back into the skin. Plus, preventing ingrown hairs aside, exfoliation can speed up your skin cell turnover promoting glowing skin AND can increase circulation.
My favorite body exfoliation tool kit is the Post Wax Body Polish Kit that we carry here at the Studio. The 8oz. bottle of paraben free De-Tox Bath Gel contains Bladderwrack Extract, a seaweed harvested from the sea. It's anti-inflammatory, meant for sensitive skin, and has a wonderfully light, fresh scent. The kit includes exfoliating gloves which I can't live without. I put the gloves on, squirt on a little De-Tox Bath Gel and do circular motions all over my skin for about a minute. Voila!
