There are some things that you should, as an adult, do on your own: your laundry and your bills to name a few. However, there are some things that should be left to the professionals: your hair, your oil change, and getting waxed. With at-home waxing kits available at pharmacies and supercenters everywhere, it may seem like something that’s easy for you to do on your own. However, here are three reasons why you shouldn’t attempt to wax yourself. Read on to learn more.
Unless you are testing the wax with a thermometer before you put it on your skin, it’s very likely that you could burn yourself. And, depending on how hot the wax is, you could get third-degree burns all over your body, which could cause scarring and take weeks to heal.
It Won’t Grab
Professional strength wax and waxing strips are going to be able to grab the hairs on your skin and move them in one swift motion. However, the over-the-counter waxing tools that are available at drugstores and pharmacies aren’t as strong, which means that they won’t be able to grab onto your hair as well— meaning that you’ll have to repeat the process over and over, and that still might not work.
You Don’t Know Techniques
There’s a famous scene in the movie The 40 Year Old Virgin in which the main character goes into a salon to get his chest and back waxed— leaving him screaming like a girl. Although waxing can be a bit uncomfortable, you won’t leave Sterling Aesthetics screaming at all, because our aestheticians are trained on ways to make your waxing experience more comfortable. However, if you are waxing yourself, you won’t know the tips and tricks that our aestheticians do.
Waxing yourself might sound like a great way to save money, but it could cause you more pain than good. Skip the sorrow and schedule a waxing appointment with Sterling Aesthetics today.
