New York, NY – Women share a lot of personal information with their stylists and esthes – who they date, where they party (the list is endless, so let’s just stop here), but they may not want to share information about the type of medications they take, and when it comes to waxing, it’s CRUCIAL!
“It really is imperative that you advise what medications you use BEFORE a wax service. Meds like Retin-A, retinol, Accutane, antibiotics, and even Proactive are designed to exfoliate the skin, so if wax is applied, it will literally lift skin off like it’s a piece of parchment paper,” explains Boom Boom.
What’s the plan if meds are involved? “A good esthe should tweeze with a clean sharp pair of tweezers. It may take longer, but it’s the only way to go,” adds Boom Boom.
