All of us love economy of money and time. Instead of addressing to good salon, many decide to make waxing in house conditions. And, alas, often the result does not please at all, especially those who else have no such skill.
Such problems are familiar to much of those who conducts epilation independently: the grown hair, irritation, residues of wax on skin.
In this article I will tell about the main mistakes in carrying out epilation.
1. Skin, unprepared to the procedure.
To avoid insufficient coupling of skin with wax it is necessary to prepare it. For this purpose before the procedure it is necessary to proskrabirovat the place of epilation. The srub can be made independently (using sugar, ground coffee, ground nutshell, coconut flakes, etc.), or to buy special means. The most preferable is the second option.
2. Degreasing of skin before epilation.
It is very important to remove skin fat from the place of epilation. For this purpose it is necessary to use special means, or to use face toner. The place needs to be wiped with the cotton pad moistened in means.

Wax needs to be removed only against growth of hair and to pull parallel to skin.
8. Too slow or fast otryvaniye of strip.
If to tear off slowly - it will be sick. If to pull too sharply - the hematoma can be formed. For a start it is necessary to be trained with speed on the small site of skin.
9. Wrong removal of residues of wax.
Sticky traces need to be deleted from wax with any vegetable oil, but not soap and towel.
10. Wrong skin care after the procedure.
