When we think of leg waxing, we think of luxuriously soft skin which is ready for anything. However, leg waxing isn’t just about banishing stubble in favor of skin which rests much more comfortably against our favorite hosiery. Instead, waxing legs rather than shaving can provide women in Toronto with a variety of other benefits also.

Pre-Leg Waxing Tips
Regardless of whether you plan to wax your legs yourself or are looking to book a professional salon leg wax, it’s imperative to cleanse and properly prepare your skin prior to applying strips themselves.
Did you know, for example, that when waxing legs, it is imperative to first check your skin for signs of irritation, unhealed sunburn, and any moles or skin tags? This is because as well causing irritation to such areas, waxing can accidentally remove moles and tags leading to blood loss and scaring.
Thankfully, once checking your skin is out of the way, you can then move on to cleansing and exfoliating your skin with gentle soap and warm water, before soaking your legs and applying a water based moisturizer to help prime your skin in order to make your next leg wax go as gently as possible.
Post Leg Wax Tips
When planning on waxing your legs, it’s important to remember that pores in your skin can remain open for several hours after waxing is over. This being the case, if you have recently undergone leg waxing in Toronto (either at home or in a professional salon environment), you should always plan to avoid chlorinated pools, hot showers, and outdoor swimming areas for at least 24-hours.
