I just had a wax, you know…down thuuur, and I was thoroughly chastised by the girl giving me my treatment. I’ve always had sensitive skin and a tendency towards ingrown hairs, but it’s been particularly bad this week. Pretty lumpy, but the lumps aren’t pretty.
She told me I need to exfoliate and I assured her that I had been, but apparently I’ve been doing it all wrong (who knew that was possible?)!
She encouraged me to buy exfoliating gloves to use alongside a sea salt scrub, and that I should do this every day until my next appointment, ignoring the first two days after treatment. Now, personally I feel that that is an awful lot of exfoliating for an area of the body no bigger than 4 square inches (random guess, I haven’t measured). Nevertheless, I always get the feeling this salon knows what it’s about. Their beauty therapists go through mega extensive training before they’re allowed to touch a client, so I’m going to take her advice.
I’ve purchased some shiny new products, so I’ll let you know how I get on!
