Since very few of us are professionals when we use at-home waxing products, we are likely to face the occasional residual wax left behind on our skin. Fortunately, there is a way to safely remove the wax without ever having to scrub your skin raw.
Read on to discover our step-by-step guide for safe excess wax removal and some of our top tips to improve your waxing experience to give you long lasting smooth skin.
A Step-by-Step Guide on How To Use Wax Removal Wipes
Post-wax care should be easy! That’s why we have created a simple 3 step guide on how to safely and effectively remove wax residue to give the best results.
Step 1: Avoid picking off excess wax
Since the residual wax has stuck to the skin and won’t come off with the wax strip, it’s much harder to pick off with your fingers. Avoid the temptation to pull off the wax, especially in sensitive areas of the body like the underarms or bikini line as this can result in pain and possible skin irritation.
Step 2: Remove the wax with a Perfect Finish Wipe
Perfect Finish Wipes are a safe and effective oil-based product that helps lift and remove any wax residue from the skin.
With only a single wipe, you’ll be able to remove any leftover wax from your skin with ease. Unlike most other oil-based products, the Veet® Perfect Finish Wipes are made with a light and lovely fragrance that can even replace the need for any perfume or scented lotion. Plus, the oil helps moisturize and soothe your skin which is essential for post-waxing comfort.
You’ll find a pack of Perfect Finish Wipes in every Veet® waxing product.
Waxing Tips to Reduce Residual Wax Buildup
Although having to deal with a bit of residual wax is very normal (in fact, it’s usually expected), there are some ways to help keep this to a minimum.
While preparing for your at-home waxing session, it helps to prep your skin to maximize wax-to-skin contact. In other words, the better the wax strips stick to your skin, the more hair you’ll remove and the less wax you’ll leave behind. To do this, apply a healthy amount of moisturizer to your body the night before to help keep the skin supple and hydrated. If your hair is too long, make sure to trim it down to about ¼ or ½ an inch in length.
When it comes to waxing, it’s very normal to expect a little excess product left behind on the skin. Perfect Finish Wipes are the best clean-up solution that leaves your skin feeling smoother than ever before.
