Hair Removal Tips for Your Skin Type

Perfect your hair removal routine with these skin-type specific waxing tips.

When a weed grows from your garden you know to yank it from the root to ensure that it stays gone for a long time. The same is true for unwanted hair on your skin, says Ludmila Milic, lead esthetician at Lorien Spa in Alexandria, Virginia. "Waxing is still one of the fastest, most efficient ways to temporarily remove unwanted hair." But for the best results, it's important to consider your skin and hair type. Get smoother, softer legs with these customized tips.

If You Have Dry Skin...

Exfoliate ahead of time with a loofah or gloves. Exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin and releases the hairs so it's easier for the wax to grab them. "Make sure you are fully hydrated (drink water!) before the waxing," says Marie Smith, head waxer at Ten 20 Waxing Salon in Boulder, Colorado. "Dehydration can cause hairs to be brittle and break during waxing." If you're parched the pores can also tighten around the hairs, making them harder to remove from the root. 

If You Have Oily Skin…

Show up for your wax freshly showered to remove some of the excess oil and sweat. "If you're sweaty or oily, the wax is less likely to stick, so it'll take longer," Smith says. "Worse, sweat can raise the wax's temperature and burn you."

If You Have Sensitive Skin...

Have a conversation with your waxer about your level of sensitivity. Is it that time of the month when skin can be more tender? Are you taking medications that make skin irritated? Be specific about the sensitivity so that he or she can be sure to not irritate it any further. "Try to avoid 'the perfect storm' (dehydration, having your period, and over-growth) -- all of these things together can lead to a skin-stinging wax experience," Smith says.
