Waxing vs. Nufree

waxingWe are about to see out first 90+F day in 2014! Warm weather mean two things: shorts and bathing suits. And that means it is time to get your waxing appointment scheduled now.

At Luxe we use Nufree, which is technically not wax, but works very similarly. This natural, self-preserving antibacterial, antimicrobial, water-free botanical formula contains no wax, sugar or honey. It was originally formulated for plastic surgeons who required clean, less painful hair removal for their patients prior to surgery. Nufree was scientifically tested fnufree-hair-removal0002or over 10 years and has been used in salons for more than 30 years! Only the best for our clients!

Here are our top suggestions for a successful depilatory experience at Luxe:

Waxing before tanning. Always wax before spray tanning. Waxing naturally exfoliates the skin and will remove any color application. There is also potential for infection.

Be sun safe. Waxed skin is photosensitive and more susceptible to burning, so take extra care to so cover up and wear sunscreen, especially after waxing.

Smooth shaving. If you have been shaving, try to wait 3-4 weeks before getting waxed. If you get a wax prematurely, you may not achieve the long-lasting results of a great bikini wax. Avoid shaving between appointments. Shaving will negate all the positive benefits of waxing and can irritate hair follicles, leading to those nasty bumps we all hate.
