If you want to get the smooth skin of a baby, facial waxing may be your answer. This process involves using warm wax, which dries on the face and is pulled off in one swift motion, taking with it any unwanted hair from the roots. Facial waxing can be performed quickly and easily by any person with good hand-eye coordination and patience. In addition to removing excess hair, facial waxing can also help improve your complexion and even make you look younger. Read on to learn more about facial waxing and decide if it’s right for you!
Ingredients in face wax
The wax used in facial hair removal products is typically a combination of natural waxes and synthetic polymers. Beeswax is frequently added as a thickener and preservative. Natural waxes, like beeswax, are often derived from beef fat, which can make some users feel uncomfortable using them. Vegan varieties use beeswax substitutes, such as candelilla wax or carnauba wax. Synthetic polymers are usually made from ingredients that do not contain meat or animal derivatives; however, these can irritate sensitive skin types and may be tougher to wash off than their natural counterparts. Some consumers also prefer an all-natural product because it’s less likely to cause an allergic reaction than its synthetic counterpart.
The benefits of face wax
One of my favorite things about waxing is how quickly it removes hair, not just at my face but everywhere. After a good wax, there are usually about two days where I don’t have to think about shaving and I can pretend I never had to deal with leg hair. If you haven’t tried it before or have been afraid of pain, I recommend going in for an eyebrow wax. It’s significantly less painful than anything else (even bikini waxes) and you can gauge your tolerance level pretty quickly. Plus your eyebrows will look so much better without all that pesky hair!
How to make your own facial wax at home
Making your own facial wax at home is easy. There are a few different products you will need to get started. All you need is an electric kettle, white sugar, a saucepan and some measuring utensils. You will also need rosemary essential oil (or if you can’t find it, eucalyptus essential oil), water and a brush for applying it to your face. The first step is to add 2 tablespoons of sugar into a cup of boiling water. Then stir until all of the sugar has dissolved in, leaving you with a sugary solution that should be quite thick, like syrup.
Some Tips and Tricks
Try experimenting with your favorite lotions, scrubs and other products to find what is just right for you. Make sure that you always use common sense when using any waxing product. In most cases, unless you are working with a professional or a trained cosmetologist, it is better to apply products such as wax yourself. Treatments done in salons can be costly and may hurt more than they help. If you don’t want to do it yourself, get to know some people who are doing their own treatments at home. They will be able to give you tips on how they got started as well as share any issues they had during treatment – if there were any problems at all.
Difference between Waxing and Sugaring
Sugaring is a centuries-old practice that has recently gained popularity in Western countries. Unlike waxing, sugaring is made from sugar, lemon juice, and water. It removes hair from your skin as gently as wax does but does not come with a risk of burns or breakouts. On top of all that, it’s also cheaper than many salon services and lasts longer; you only need to touch up your sugaring treatment every three weeks. Here’s how to get started.

Side effect of Face Waxing
While most people will see results with waxing after a few sessions, it can be irritating for some. Hair often grows back in thinner, lighter and slower than before. This can sometimes last for several weeks, during which time it is possible to get ingrown hairs. If you experience significant irritation from waxing or notice increased ingrown hairs after going for a facial wax, discontinue use and consult your doctor.
