It's almost time to get ready for the summer sun so why not book in for a waxing treatment.

.

Exfoliating is extremely important before you start waxing to get rid of old skin cells and possibly trapped hairs, but let it rest 24 hours before your waxing appointment. Mitts, dry brushes and loofahs are great for the legs and help with improving circulation for anti-cellulite also.

If it's your first wax of the season book a full body exfoliation as this will help leave the body smooth. Improve your moisturising game by applying it everyday after you shower.

Eating the right foods can really help your skin's hydration as unhealthy foods increase free radicals which accelerate cell oxidation and this in turn speeds up the ageing process. Eat plenty of good fats; nuts, avocados, oily fish, as well as fruits, leafy greens and make sure to drink plenty of water.

Before your first waxing treatment let your hair grow for at least two weeks and also  avoid the sun and sunbeds for at least two days before your appointment. Heat treatments like saunas are best to avoid as well for 24 hours before waxing also.

Now you're ready for summer waxing! 

I hope these tips come in handy. If it's your first time don't worry it's not that sore and the results outweigh the little pain. The hair starts to regrow softer and lighter straight away. It won't last that long initially, but it will definitely last longer than shaving every day. You won't be left with stubble, sharp hair regrowth or bumpy skin.

Male waxing usually consists of back or chest waxing, but we get requested to wax arms, legs, neck, nose, and brows.

The most requested waxing for women is legs, underarm and Hollywood.

“It was great that people made the effort to come and find out more what Killarney Lions Club does, despite the weather on the night. We are a voluntary group so community support is vital for activities such as our Christmas Food Appeal which will kick off very soon.”
