Types of wax for hair removal
There are several types of wax for hair removal, characterized not only by purpose but also by the achieved result. The most easy-to-use cold wax is sold in the form of strips, which is enough to warm in his hands, then immediately use.

Before epilation the skin should be prepared, washing and drying, as the surface needs to be degreased. This will not only facilitate the hair removal itself, but the subsequent removal of residual wax. The wax need to be heated to the temperature appropriate to its type, then using a spatula, apply to skin and to press the fabric or paper strip wax.
After the wax cools, there will be only to dramatically tear a strip of him from the skin in the direction of the natural growth of hair. After the procedure, well apply on clean skin a soothing cream or lotion to prevent skin irritation.
Length of hair for successful hair removal should be not less than 0.5 cm, or extract them using wax will fail.
