Waxing is one method of hair removal which can leave skin silky smooth for weeks. Gigi All Purpose Honee Wax is a natural formula, which can be used even on the most sensitive skin. It contains natural honey and beeswax. This wax removes hair and leaves skin smooth and soft, without irritating it. With this natural wax, you can have soft skin without worrying about shaving or removing hair for at least 4 weeks. This method of hair removal is quite simple, thought it does involve mild pain which lasts just a few seconds.
Items you will need
- Scrub or scrubbing gloves
Wash the areas of your skin which will be waxed. Exfoliate using a scrub or scrubbing gloves to help smooth skin by removing dead skin cells, to prepare it for waxing. Dry with a towel.
Warm the GiGi All Purpose Honee Wax in the included warmer or in a microwave for about 10 seconds or until it turns into a liquid. Touch the jar, and if it doesn't feel too hot, dip the tip of your finger in the wax carefully. If wax is warm, but not hot, test it on the inside of your wrist. The wax should feel comfortable and warm, but not too hot.
Dip the wooden spatula into the wax and pick up a quarter-sized amount or more. You need a thin layer, about the size of the epilating strip which is included in the kit.
Smooth a thin layer of the wax onto your skin in the direction of hair growth, that is so the hair down is smoothed down. For example, if applying to legs, smooth the wax in a downward direction.
Cover the wax on your skin with an epilating strip which is included in the kit. Smooth it down with your fingers in the same direction as you applied the wax.
Stretch the skin around the strip and hold it taut. Pull the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth quickly. Make sure to keep the strip as close to the skin as possible as you pull it. You will feel a slight sting and might experience mild redness afterward. Do not apply more wax in the same area, even if there are some hairs remaining.
Moisturize the waxed skin by applying GiGi After Wax Cooling Gel, which will help reduce the pain and redness. This gel is included in the waxing kit.
Use lotion daily to keep skin smooth and hair free longer, for example a lotion which slows down hair growth, or the Slow Grow Skin Maintenance Lotion, as recommended by GiGi.
