Here at Marzena, we believe that the choice to remove body hair is entirely personal, and should never have to be justified. We also believe that education is key to great results, so here are some helpful hints to help demystify a long practiced ritual.

 

Waxing

Different areas of the body grow hair in different directions – even your legs have different growth patterns. So get up and personal with yourself, and have a closer look to help get the most out of your hair removal.

Strips

Warming up a strip: Rub between your hands, and the strip will become softer – supple. Slowly peel them apart, and then you have two ready to use strips. The slow peel is to ensure that there is an even distribution of wax on each strip.

Reusing a strip: After removing from the skin, fold in half so the wax touches, warm between your hands, and then slowly peel apart. This helps reinvigorate the wax so it can potentially be used again.

Application of a strip: Place on area you wish to wax, and rub firmly with the direction of the hair growth.

Removal of the strip: holding the skin firmly, zip the strip back, against the direction of the hair growth.

Residual Wax: a section of the used wax strip is great for removing any remaining wax – just simply dab the strip on to it.

Once you have finished waxing, you can use either an after wax wipe, or any natural oil, to remove any remaining wax.

    Liquid Wax

    Apply wax with hair growth – a thin layer that you can still see the skin through

    Apply the cotton strips, and smooth down with the hair growth.

    Remove wax against hair growth, zipping the cotton strip back, while hold the skin taut.

      Lotions + Creams

      If you know that you have stubborn hair, then try softening the hair with warm water first, then dry the area thoroughly and apply the cream or lotion.

         

        Comments heard over the years

        It takes so long to wax – shave is faster

        • We hear this a lot. And we understand! Just have a think back to the first few times you shaved, and how you have gotten faster with practice. Waxing is the same. The more you do it, the faster you get. With the added benefit that over time, waxing does reduce the hair regrowth, so you will have less to wax.

        Waxing takes off my tan

        • Yes it will, as often the top few layers of the epidermis come off with a wax, and often a razor as well. If you have a fresh tan, then our Sensitive Hair Removal lotion is ideal to help achieve silky smooth skin for your occasion.
        • We recommend timing your wax for a few days before a tan. Waxing is a great way to help exfoliate and prep the skin back to a nice even base, giving your tan the best foundation for longevity.

         

        Terminology

         

        Hold Skin Taut

        Taut means tight, rather than slack. By holding the skin firm and tight, you will have a better waxing result as the wax is less likely to pull on the skin when removing, and assist with removing the hair from the roots.

        Zip Back When removing a strip, aim to keep it close and parallel to the skin, rather than lifting away. This is the technique that will give the best result with the least pain.
