Waxing – Before & Aftercare

For best results please follow the recommendations below. To maintain smooth results waxing should be repeated every 4 – 6 weeks. Beauty by Janine is a stockist of Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Oil Products to soothe skin and prevent ingrown hairs post waxing.

Before your Waxing Appointment...
* Hair should be no shorter than a grain of rice. If you have previously shaved, grow hair for 7-10 days.
* Avoid sunbed use or over-exposing skin to the sun 12-24hrs prior to waxing.
* Avoid very hot bath/steam/sauna/jacuzzi/ immediately prior to waxing.
* Please advise if you are using or have used Ro-Accutane (a drug prescribed for acne)
* Please advise if you have had or are planning to have micro-dermabrasion/skin peels/glycolic acid/AHAs

After your Waxing Appointment...
* Please do not use a sunbed or over-expose the waxed area to the sun for 12-24 hrs.
* Please do not swim for 12-24 hrs.
* Avoid very hot baths/steam/sauna/jacuzzi for 12-24 hrs.
* It is advisable to wear loose, comfortable clothing after waxing.

Avoid Ingrown Hairs... 

  • Wash daily with an anti-bacterial wash such as Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Oil Skin Wash. Use with a shower puff to gently lift dead skin cells.

  • Moisturise daily to keep skin supple. Beauty by Janine recommends Australian Bodycare Body Lotion containing Tea Tree Oil.

  • Treat and prevent stubborn ingrown hairs with Waxperts Wonder Pads which contain Salicyclic Acid. Use daily to break down dead skin cells to free trapped hair.
