It is important to note at the outset that the distinction in high quality from one brand name of wax to the following can be considerable. Low-cost waxes usually make use of substandard resources causing finished items with substandard performance as well as security characteristics.
Both soft and also tough depilatory waxes are created to be thawed and also applied to the skin. Exactly how the items “treatment” or completely dry on the skin and also just how they are removed are the vital distinction. Soft wax treatments slowly as well as remains ugly. Once used it needs to be removed making use of a waxing strip (a piece of fabric made for the objective).

Scuff the underside of the spatula on the edge of the wax container to ensure that wax is on only one side of the spatula. Twirl the spatula over the jar until you have control of the wax as well as you have an ounce or 2 on the spatula. Spread out a thin, also layer of wax in the same direction as hair development.
