The winter may have left you with no motivation to wax and a little extra hair. But now spring is in the air, so it’s time to bust out those short shorts and remove unwanted hair! With the sun out, it’s the perfect time to emerge from hibernation and use some spring waxing tips for smooth, sexy skin.

Swiss Clinique’s Spring Waxing Tips

1. Start Early

Prepare for the summer by starting a regular waxing cycle and continuing it year-round. Regular waxing can lengthen the time between your treatments; the more you wax, the weaker the hair follicle becomes, making it easier to remove. If you are new to waxing and want to make it last, schedule a “Touch Up” service to help you transition your hair-growth pattern from shaving to waxing. You can continue to touch-up treatments every four weeks to maintain your smooth skin.

2. Exfoliate

Get your skin prepped and primed for a flawless waxing experience by incorporating exfoliation into your pre-wax routine. Body scrubs or brushes help shed any dead skin accumulated in the winter, ensuring your skin is smooth and ready for waxing. Not only does exfoliation slough away dead skin cells, but it also helps to prevent pesky ingrown hairs, ensuring a smoother, longer-lasting wax. Indulge in a gentle exfoliating session the day before your waxing appointment for optimal results. By making exfoliation a priority, you pave the way for silky-smooth skin and a waxing experience that’s as seamless as it gets.

3. Skip the Tanning Salon

When it comes to waxing, timing is everything. To ensure your skin remains irritation-free, it’s best to steer clear of tanning beds 24 hours before and after your waxing session. Why? Tanning can sensitize your skin, making it more susceptible to irritation during and after waxing. However, if you’re eager to achieve that sun-kissed glow, opt for a spray tan—but schedule it for the day after your waxing appointment. By following this simple rule, you’ll maintain the integrity of your skin and enhance the effectiveness and comfort of your waxing experience.

4. Plan Ahead

We recommend scheduling your waxing appointment two days before your trip to ensure your skin looks and feels its best while you’re soaking up the sun. Why two days? This allows ample time for any potential post-waxing redness or irritation to subside, leaving you with smooth, beach-ready skin just in time for your getaway. By planning ahead and giving your skin the attention it deserves, you can confidently strut your stuff and make the most of every moment during your vacation.
