FACIAL WAXING INFO
Facial waxing is a great way to remove hair! The result is smooth, soft skin. Waxing is just one of the many types of hair removal available aside from traditional shaving, plucking, and depilatories. It's ideal for use on the face if you want to target large amounts of hair at once. Facial wax works with either warm or cool wax that hardens against the area of skin with unwanted hairs.
The wax I use is a warm, soft wax which also contains the essential oils of lavender in it which helps to soothe the skin and calm down any redness that may occur.

FACIAL WAXING FAQ

Waxing has the exact opposite result of shaving. If you keep waxing a part of your body you will notice that the hair grows finer and slower and in some cases it becomes patchy.
Your skin is very likely to be a little sensitive and possibly irritable for two or three days. You can soothe this with products designed for after-wax use. You may want to do a cold-press if there is redness, inflammation or excess irritability. Use an ice cube to massage your skin. Exfoliate after 2 or 3 days.

Facial waxing is one of the best hair removal methods! Waxing is an alternative hair removal method for traditional methods such as shaving, plucking, and depilatories. Warm or cool wax is applied on the skin which sticks to undesirable hair. The wax and hair is quickly pulled off together using a strip, resulting in smooth soft skin.
