Hi there, Everyone! It’s Meghan again, your esthetician at Verde. For many of us, summer is vacations and looking our best and often involves showing a lot more skin! So has getting your eyebrows professionally waxed and shaped been on your mind? What about a quick and simple bikini wax to keep you ready for bathing suit season all summer long? Want to know why Verde is going to be your best bet to get it done? As usual, here at Verde we don’t just care about providing a good service, but we also care about providing you with a safe and healthy alternative to the chemical filled products on the market these days. Our wax is no exception! We have been careful to research the wax used at our salon to make sure it is the safest and most clean product available on the market, while still proving effective.
Why is it so important to use a safe and natural wax? Well, many people think that it doesn’t matter much, after all it is only staying on for a few seconds before being removed, it can’t be that big of a deal right? Wrong! Our skin is the largest organ of our body and absorbs a portion of everything that it comes into contact with. Not to mention the wax being applied to the skin is heated, which causes our pores to dilate, aiding in the pore’s ability to absorb whatever is on its surface.
Something that is of concern, that most waxes on the market have, is some sort of fragrance. We all know that fragrance is something that many people are sensitive to but did you know that according to law no company has to specify what is used to create the fragrance? No matter what the source of the fragrance is, it is acceptable to just state the word “fragrance” in the ingredients. That leaves us open not only to a possible allergic reaction but also unnecessary chemicals being introduced into our system. Yuck!
Another common ingredient in waxes is some form of coloring agent. We are so sensory driven these days that we want everything to have a pretty color so as to be appealing to the eye, but let’s be honest, it is going on the skin and coming off, that doesn’t need to be a pretty color… this isn’t eyeshadow! Coloring agents can often times be an irritant to the skin causing worsened reddening of the skin than necessary during your treatment.
In addition to both of these ingredients, some wax manufacturers have also added chemicals to change the consistency, look, feel, and grip on the hair. Now, who really wants to have chemicals smeared on their face or body if not necessary? No raise of hands? I didn’t think so!
At Verde, we take pride in making sure that our wax has the least amount of ingredients possible. Plus, it works! If you’ve been waxed before and broke out badly consider trying our safe wax, as it could have been a sensitivity to one of the ingredients listed above. Plus, as an added benefit, I can top anyone off with our Eminence Skin Care Clear Skin Probiotic Masque to help prevent those pesky post wax breakouts! So, if you’ve been thinking about getting waxed this summer, call and ask for me at Verde where all our products are safe and clean for you and your family~ Because being beautiful should never harm you!
