Notes during waxing

Do not wax too often:

Only wax on average every 4 weeks. In particular, do not perform waxing on the skin with open wounds, acne and stop immediately when the skin shows signs of itching, redness.

Make sure the skin is clean and dry:

The skin must be clean and dry for the wax to stick well on the skin, because just wet, the wax will be difficult to stick. Also, do not forget to gently exfoliate before waxing so that the hairs “reveal” completely.

Soothe the skin after waxing:

When you finish waxing, you should apply a layer of baby oil (baby oil) to remove the remaining wax on the skin, while also soothing the skin, limiting ingrown hairs. .

Do not take a hot bath immediately after waxing:

When waxing is complete, the skin is very weak and vulnerable, so you should only use cool water or warm enough water.

Some popular waxing methods in beauty today

Hot wax

Hot wax is the use of molten wax to wash away hair follicles on the skin, done by evenly applying wax at Bellissima to the skin while the wax is still warm. As the waxes cool, they harden and are pulled away from the skin (opposite of the hair follicle). The waxes used in hot wax are usually soft waxes.

Strip wax

Strip wax is a method of using a commercially available patch to rub firmly on the area to be waxed and vigorously peel off the patch in the opposite direction of hair growth; or use an unheated wax to apply to the skin, then also apply the patch and peel it off. The difference between strip wax and hot wax is that there is no need for a heat source to heat the wax before waxing.

Steps to perform waxing

  • Preparation tools
  • Waxing wax
  • Waxing Paper
  • Waxing stick
  • Baby oil
  • Baby powder
  • Exfoliating products


  1. Clean the area to be waxed and gently exfoliate.
  2. Heat the wax at the appropriate temperature (with pre-purchased waxes, follow the recommended temperature on the package).
  3. Use a stick to take the waxed part and apply it to the area to be waxed in the direction of hair growth (before waxing, you can apply baby powder to make the wax adhere better).
  4. Stick the patch on, gently rub it, let it dry, and then pull it firmly in the opposite direction of hair growth.
  5. Rinse with cold water, pat dry with a cotton towel and then apply a layer of baby oil on the waxed skin.

You should wax each area of ​​skin individually for better results. Note that the pulling movement must be quick and decisive, in the opposite direction of the hair growth and diagonally with the skin surface.

Above are the steps to perform hot waxing. As for the steps to perform cold waxing, it is the same, except that there is no need to heat the wax at high temperature.
