Recipe: Pre/Post Epilation Scrub

Many women get their legs waxed.  Waxing removes the entire hair, including the root, from the follicle.According to Alison of DIY Skincare recommends using a gentle scrub on the surface to be waxed can help reduce the incidence of painful, ingrown hairs. Exfoliate 48 hours prior to waxing and then wait 48-72 hours after waxing to exfoliate again. You can continue to exfoliate 1 to 2 times per week thereafter. Avoid tight-fitting clothes for a few days after a waxing service to give the skin a chance to breathe. The additives selected were chosen for their anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.If you wax and want to exfoliate after your treatment then I would recommend Alison's Pre/Post Epilation Scrub recipe.
