How to prepare your skin for hair removal?

Hair removal is one of the most common methods for eliminating hair. However, it requires some preparatory steps to be effective and limit unpleasant sensations.

Exfoliation, an essential practice before hair removal.

Performed once a week, typically two days before hair removal, skin exfoliation stimulates cellular renewal and removes accumulated keratinocytes from the skin's surface, preventing pore blockage. Additionally, exfoliating brings out ingrown hairs, which are then more effectively removed during hair removal.

It is advisable to favor fine-grained and not too abrasive scrubs for sensitive areas such as the armpits, bikini line, and face. The legs, on the other hand, can withstand a scrub with more substantial particles.

Typology has developed three scrubs using micro-grains exfoliants derived from ground apricot kernels. The facial scrub is less concentrated in abrasive particles than the body scrubs, in order to respect your skin.

  • The radiant facial scrub is recommended for unclogging pores and promoting cellular renewal.

  • The nourishing body scrub helps to soften and smooth the epidermis. It is particularly suitable for dry and uncomfortable skin.

  • The invigorating body scrub contains organic green coffee macerate (draining) as well as essential oils of lemongrass and organic cedar (anti-cellulite). It is recommended for smoothing, firming, and toning the skin while reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Don't forget to hydrate your skin after exfoliation!

Whether your skin is dry, combination, or oily, it is crucial to apply a moisturizing treatment after exfoliation, whether it's on the body or on the face. This is particularly important to restore the hydrolipidic film. Indeed, while exfoliation has certainly removed dead cells from the epidermis, it has also weakened the protective skin barrier. Even better, following the scrub, the horny layer being thinner, it's the ideal time to provide the skin with active ingredients and nutrients that will be more easily absorbed, such as nourishing, firming, slimming treatments, etc...

To rehydrate your skin after exfoliation, you can apply one of our body creams:

  • The nourishing cream Squalane 10% + Shea Butter is enriched with nourishing active ingredients. It restores the skin's lipid barrier, reduces feelings of tightness, and protects the skin from external aggressions.

  • The firming cream Caffeine 2% + Guarana extract contains firming active ingredients and helps to tighten the skin tissues and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

  • The 10-ingredient moisturizing cream is a minimalist formula that hydrates all skin types, even sensitive ones. It is formulated with 99% natural origin ingredients.

The pre-waxing trick.

Hot water interacts with the skin and opens up the pores. If you are performing hair removal at home, taking a hot bath before the procedure can be optimal to facilitate hair removal. However, this technique is not recommended for individuals suffering from venous insufficiency or a circulatory disorder.
