It would be cruel to describe waxing as an enjoyable experience, but there are ways to make it as pain-free as it can get. As long as you choose LYCON, the brand that has brought salon waxing into the collective consciousness since 1978!
So, be brave and go straight for the hot wax. Despite what your instincts tell you, hot wax is much friendlier and effective for most of the skins. It’s soft and ready to apply in a matter of seconds, and it’s less painful to peel off with one quick pull.
Here’s a selection of hot waxes to choose from:
Our top pick is the original and legendary Apricot hot wax LYCON launched in 1979. Four decades later, it’s still a bestseller in salons around the world. Its formula is very gentle, yet very strong, and it conditions and nurtures skin while waxing.
With a luscious strawberry scent, the SoBerry Delicious not only smells heavenly, but it’s easy to work with too! It contains LYCON’s unique titanium dioxide technology, which makes the application creamy and flexible, excellent for sensitive areas, perfect for Brazilian waxing and short 1mm hair.
A scrumptious waxing experience comes with the SoYummy hot wax, which is best described as a chocolate treat without the calories. It has a super gentle formulation with iron oxide and micro mica that makes it great for all waxing.
If this selection of hot waxes hasn’t put your mind at ease and you’re still wondering “just how painful” waxing is, there are few more tips we could share, to help prep and soothe your skin.
Exfoliate the day before, as it helps eliminate ingrown hairs and gives your skin a super smooth finish. Be sure to continue to exfoliate after waxing too, with an all-natural salt or sugar scrub, once or twice a week in the shower, as this will help buff off dry skin and dead cells, and unblock congested pores. We recommend our light and creamy body scrub made with grapefruit, lemon and bamboo granules.
Tone your skin after waxing, with an antiseptic or astringent, in order to decrease the risk of infection and tighten the pores in the process. Our LYCOTANE skin cleanser, made with jasmine and chamomile, is a reliable, light and refreshing clean-up nurse for your skin post wax?
Moisturise to lock in your body’s natural oils. Our go-to moisturiser is the Perfect Finish, an apricot, sweet almond and lavender oil that keeps your skin supple and hydrated.
Overtime, regular waxing with high quality LYCON products will protect your skin and lead to finer hairs with far less grow back, and the ‘grin and bear it’ days of waxing will be a thing of the past – trust LYCON!
LYCON waxing products are available at leading beauty salons across the UAE and wider GCC.
