Wayne'r hopes these tips will help you Wax your Sensitive Skin!
Summer is the time to shed those winter wools and show off some leg. This year's hottest accessory will be sexy, smooth skin - perfect for those hot summer nights spent flirting by the pool. For hair-free skin that lasts for weeks, many women look to waxing - but are too nervous to try it at home.
Do you have that fear? Don't! With the right products, waxing at home doesn't have to be a scary experience.
Products such as Veet Ready to Use Wax Strips for Sensitive Skin (veet.ca) are ideal for wax virgins. Fragrance free and designed for sensitive skin, they are effective on hair as short as two millimeters and they also eliminate the risk of mess and burns by holding the correct amount of wax on each strip.
Here are a few more tips from Veet to make the procedure as easy and successful as possible:
. Test the waxing product on a small area of the skin where hair will be removed. If there is no reaction, proceed.
. If it's your first waxing experience, begin with your legs, which tend to be less sensitive.
. Exfoliate the area to be waxed to avoid any ingrown hairs.
. Wash skin thoroughly to remove residual lotions or oils. If necessary, use talcum powder to ensure the area is as dry as possible.
Putting it On
. Working with one wax strip at a time, warm the wax by rubbing between your hands for five seconds. Press the strip gently onto the skin and smooth firmly in the direction of hair growth.
. Hold the skin taut with one hand and with the other hand, grip the bottom of the strip. In one swift and decisive movement, remove the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth. Repeat as necessary.
. To remove any remaining traces of wax left on the skin, dab them with the back of a used strip.
Taking it Off
. When removing wax, one fast, smooth, pull back is the most effective.
. Never lift the strip of wax upwards. Keep it as close to the skin as possible.
. Just remember the method: smooth down, hold down, and pull back!
. After waxing use the Perfect Finish Wipes, which are included in all Veet wax kits, to wipe away any traces of residual wax.

At-home waxing tips
Whether you spring for treatments at the spa, or reap the savings of doing your own waxing, Rhonda Shupe, professor of cosmetics and aesthetics, offers the following tips:
. Do ensure you are warm, comfortable and relaxed. Constricted pores can make the skin more sensitive to pain.
. Do ensure skin is clean and dry. A dusting of talcum powder removes excess moisture and keeps wax adhered to hair, not skin.
. Do consider becoming your own waxing expert to save money and hassle. One 400g pot of Nair Cire Divine stripless wax can easily cover three full leg waxes at about $16.00 per pot compared to upwards of $150.00 for the same number of treatments in a salon or spa.
. Do be patient. It might take a few tries to get the hang of doing your own waxing, but it's worth it.
. Don't irritate freshly waxed skin with products or immediate sunlight.
