Everything You Need to Know About DIY Waxing

However, there are a lot of things to consider before getting yourself an at-home waxing kit. 

Prep the Skin

Just like in makeup, prepping the skin is an essential part of every skincare routine. 

Ministry Of Waxing General UK Manager Zainab Siddiq previously explained to Elle magazine that skipping this part will make or break your at-home waxing experience. 

"When using any waxing product, it's important to sanitize the area prior. This will remove any sweat and bacteria and give a clean base for the product to adhere to without irritating the epidermis," he mentioned. 

Exfoliating will help to remove any dead skin cells and free ingrown hairs found in the skin. 

The Right Length of Hair

Experts advised that it needs to be a minimum of ⅛ inches long, and just in case you have longer hair, you might want to trim it.
