Waxing in the winter? Okay, we know, that might sound like an oxymoron since rocking out in summer bikinis seems to go more hand-in-hand than long pants, jackets, and waxing.
But bear with us for a moment and follow our thought process for a moment. Winter is definitely a great time to wax! This is the time of year when your skin needs the best hydration, so we recommend applying hard wax.
When is the best time to wax?
The best time to wax regularly is every 4-6 weeks, all year round, even during the winter months! If you are new to waxing, the best time to start waxing is during the winter months.
Don’t put off making an appointment with your beautician or you’ll have to wait until next summer to start waxing and you’ll want to start winter!
Also, just like not all beauty salons are created equal, not all things are created equal. If you are new to waxing, you may not feel comfortable at a salon and find that the wax they use has an unpleasant effect on your skin. All waxes are discontinued! There is a wax that is made just for you, but it may take a few tries to find it. Starting in the winter months gives you time to settle into your favorite routine and which wax works best for your skin to give you the best results for the summer months ahead.
Speaking of wax, which wax is best for those winter months? We tell you that rosin-free wax is one of the best waxes for you. There are many benefits, especially for those new to waxing.
Benefits for wax in winter
1. It takes care of your skin:
The creams used after waxing will add moisture and moisture to your skin. By exfoliating and applying recommended moisturizers and soothing products when you wash, you’re giving your skin all the moisture it needs in the winter. Follow your winter hair care routine with body oil, balm and aloe gel to exfoliate your hair to soothe and calm your skin.
2. It doesn’t irritate
During the colder months, your skin may be more sensitive due to its dryness. In winter, your clothes can irritate the shiny skin. Exfoliating in the winter gives the skin a little moisture to remove flakiness and when taken care of with the right skin care products, waxy skin does not tolerate the irritation associated with shaving.
Sticking to the same waxing routine you have in the summer during the winter will ensure you’re always ready for those last-minute sessions that require you to tone up. It’s almost vacation time! We forget that we still swim and go to the gym all winter long and it pays to prepare it with a permanent wax treatment. It also means you don’t have to worry about being prepared for a winter trip to a warmer place.
Tips to waxing during winter
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
This is the first on our list and it repeats itself. Three times. Hopefully this shows the importance of staying hydrated in the winter (and all year round). Hot water in the winter is a big problem, and chapped lips and dry skin abound in the winter months. But did you know that your hair also dries out and splits, which makes waxing even more painful? So, by keeping your body hydrated, your hair will be less prone to breakage and your skin will be healthier.
Make it a habit to exfoliate regularly in winter – it helps remove dead skin cells, promotes healthy hair growth and helps prevent those pesky ingrown hairs.
Get into a routine
Winter is the best time to get a good hair removal routine. Plan to wax every 3-4 weeks in the winter and before you know it, your hair growth and pain level will be greatly reduced. This means that as soon as the summer season begins, you can start to apply every 4-6 weeks, because your hair will be longer and more manageable. When you start your wax treatment, always warm up the wax in a wax heater because this can help melt your wax and protect you from irritation and pain.
Time vs. length
This continues in chapter 3. Although the instructions are 3-4 weeks, also look at your hair really, as hair grows slowly in the winter due to your pores shrink from the cold. Your hair should be at least 1/8 inch long before waxing.
