Why exfoliate before waxing?

Hair removal can be a tedious task, but it's important to remember the crucial step that precedes hair removal: exfoliation.

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and smoothes the surface of the skin. This makes epilation more efficient by allowing the hairs to come out of the skin more easily. It also reduces the chance of irritation and pain when epilating because the hairs don't twist or break under the skin.

In addition, exfoliation prepares the skin to receive moisturizer or oil after waxing, which helps reduce redness and irritation. It can also help reduce the appearance of ingrown hairs by removing dead skin cells that can accumulate around hair follicles.

It is important to note that some types of scrubs may be too harsh for some sensitive skin. It is therefore important to choose a gentle scrub that is adapted to your skin type. It is also recommended not to scrub the skin before waxing if you have an ongoing skin irritation or rash.

In summary, exfoliating before waxing is essential to achieve effective results and reduce the risk of irritation and pain. Be sure to choose a scrub suitable for your skin type and to do it well in advance to avoid any skin irritation before waxing
