A Spa In Ottawa Dishes The Secrets
It will soon be summer, and what does that mean for us ladies (and men too)? The perfect excuse for frequent trips to our favourite spa in Ottawa! Well, for some waxing that is… but here’s the catch: I don’t know about you, but for me, the only soothing part of receiving a waxing in Ottawa is the part when it’s all over!
Indeed, there is something so satisfying about knowing that your legs and arms will be silky smooth for weeks to come. But every person—male or female—has different spots on their body which are exceptionally sensitive. For example, I can sleep through a bikini wax, but getting my thighs waxed is much more painful.
Luckily, there are some tried and tested tips that will make your waxing in Ottawa much less painful! Here are just a few:
Perform Regular Exfoliation
Every esthetician at your favourite spa in Ottawa will tell you that regular exfoliation is key to lessen the pain of waxing and prevent ingrown hairs. Exfoliating at least once a week (with a loofah sponge or exfoliating gel) will remove the dead skin cells your body and make for a much gentler waxing experience.
Another way to exfoliate is to perform dry brushing on your body every morning before you go in the shower. Many cultures practice dry brushing as a way to promote healthy circulation of the body’s circulatory system, and there are tons of resources online on how to dry brush correctly.
Why not give it a try as well before your waxing in Ottawa this month?
Never Shave the Area in Question
Yes, it can be tempting to shave once in a while, especially when we want to wear our favourite shorts or skirt while we are waiting for the hair to grow enough to visit our spa in Ottawa. But did you know that waxing an area repeatedly makes the hair thinner over time, and shaving over the area only once cancels out all of the benefits of waxing?
Thinner hair means much less pain during waxing… so resist the urge to shave and make a recurrent appointment at your spa in Ottawa for a waxing experience that will become much less painful over the years!
Soothe Your Anxiety
When we are nervous about getting a waxing treatment, our muscles contract and this can also make for a much more painful waxing experience. Luckily, the most luxurious spas understand that relaxation should also be part of your experience when getting a waxing treatment.
Always choose a spa in Ottawa that will pamper you with soothing music and aromatherapy… this is your best bet to make your waxing in Ottawa a memorable one— for the right reasons!
Whether you want to wax your eyebrows or a more sensitive area, getting a waxing in Ottawa can be more enjoyable than you think!
