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.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
