Avalon Spa and Salon in McAllen has everything you need to feel great in a bikini for this year’s Spring Break!
Waxing Over Shaving
Waxing is highly recommended and much safer than shaving. Shaving can cause skin irritations and may even increase the chance of developing ingrown hairs, which are not attractive and look very similar to pimples. An ingrown can easily put a damper on your Spring Break celebration and will definitely not contribute to your confidence level. Toss away those razors and hair removal creams! Opt for waxing for longer-lasting hairless results!
The Brazilian Wax
The Brazilian wax – most either love or hate it. Many love it because it takes care of those pesky hairs in the bikini area while others hate it because of the discomfort of getting one. A Brazilian wax is pretty liberating and widely popular around this time of year, however. It focuses on the bikini line and removes the hair only visible around that area. It also removes hair from the genital area. Waxing is known to exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells, too!
Before Your Appointment
There are a few things to do and avoid prior to your waxing appointment. When preparing for a Brazilian wax, it’s important for your hair to be at least the length of a grain of rice. This allows the waxing strip to get a good grip of it. So, plan ahead and avoid shaving at least a week in advance. Leading up to your appointment, it’s best to avoid high levels of caffeine and alcohol. This can cause your pores to tighten up, making the waxing treatment very uncomfortable. We recommend postponing your coffee date or Happy Hour gathering until after the treatment. Also, before your appointment, be sure to wear cotton panties in order to avoid any skin irritation following your waxing.
A Big No-No
Although the majority of those seeking a wax have the sun and beach in mind immediately afterward, be careful of how soon you head outdoors. Exposing the treated area to the sun too soon can potentially cause sun-related damage. It’s best to wait 24 to 48 hours before receiving a tanning. Your skin is in a vulnerable state during this time and can suffer some harm. If you need some sun, we highly recommend applying sunscreen to the treated areas beforehand.
