Additional Pre & Post Appointment Care

We recommend soaking in a ½ cup of Saltspring Dead Sea Salt for 20 minutes the day of and day after your treatment.  This will clean out the follicles, detoxify and hydrate the skin. Exfoliate every other day or 2 – 3 days per week between treatments. This is to keep your skin smooth, and to prevent ingrown hairs.

Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs are caused by a build-up of dead skin cells forming over the mouth of the follicle. The new hair does not have the strength to push its way through the skins surface.  You may feel itchy and develop bumps.  Clients with dry skin are more prone to this condition.  Proper exfoliation and hydration of the skin will help prevent bumps and irritation.


You keep saying exfoliate, exfoliate... what does that really mean?

  1. Option 1: Exfoliating can be as simple as using a dry cloth before going in the shower (dry cloth, dry skin).  This will remove more dead skin than a wet cloth, and wet skin in the shower or bath.
  2. Option 2: Use a sugar or salt scrub in the shower or bath
  3. Option 3: (best) Dry Brushing; as it sounds use a dry brush on your skin before going in the shower.  Not sure where to find a dry brush; Just Sugar has brushes in stock. Here is a link to a great post about dry brushing from Rocky Mountain Soap Company.

With any form of exfoliation use a minimum of once per week, ideally 2 - 3 times per week
