Sugar Wax Cartridge is hypoallergenic, adheres only to the hair, can be used on more sensitive areas of the skin and wax residue may be washed off the skin with lukewarm water.
ALWAYS CHECK THE SKIN TO DETERMINE SENSITIVITY.
Waxing is not recommended for individuals who are taking preparations of alpha-hydroxy acids and/or glycolic acid, or in the cases of pregnancy, diabetes, heart problems, varicose veins, circulatory disorders, epilepsy, cuts and abrasions, skin diseases and rashes, birth defects, liver spots, swelling, freshly healed wounds (within three months of healing), undiagnosed tumours, or oversensitive skin. Exposure to direct sunlight within 24 hours of waxing, use on adolescents without permission, and use in the area of the breasts are not recommended.
ADVANTAGES OF SUGARING WAX:
- Adheres only to the hair,
- Can be used on more sensitive areas of the skin,
- Wax residue may be washed off the skin with lukewarm water.
HOW TO USE COSMETIC WAX:
1. Clean the area to be treated. Objective: to completely remove all grease, dead skin cells, sweat, and bacteria.
2. Use talcum powder: Sprinkle talcum powder over the area to be waxed. Objective: to absorb moisture and cause the hair to stand erect. To ensure that hair is removed with maximum effi ciency and minimum discomfort, it is very important to use powder before every waxing.
3. Prepare to wax: Screw the ROLL-ON top onto the wax cartridge before heating.
4. Heat the wax by microwaving or by standing it in hot water. If using a microwave, heat wax at 800 Watts for 25 seconds, then wait one minute before using. If using hot water, heat at 85 °C for 6 minutes.
5. Before using, check that the wax has been heated to the proper temperature.
6. Apply the wax: Roll a thin layer of wax over the area to be treated. The ROLL-ON top allows for fast, effi cient application, giving perfect results every time.
7. Apply the textile patch: Next, smooth the wax removal strip over the wax, pressing repeatedly in the direction of hair growth.
8. Remove the patch: Finally, holding the skin taut, peel the strip off in a plane parallel to the skin surface, using a careful, but swift motion. This ensures that hair is removed effi ciently. Improper removal of the textile patch may irritate or damage the skin, or may break the strands of hair, rather than removing them by the roots, which may result in ingrown hairs.
Heating the wax in the microwave always requires discretion, to be practised only at your own risk and according to the owner’s manual. After heating it is compulsory waiting 1 minute before using.
The wax is hot, the cartridge must be used according to the warnings and instructions contained in this booklet. Make sure to always follow the basic safety precautions.
WAX IS WASTED WHENEVER:
- It is applied in more than one layer,
- A strip is applied so that it overlaps a previously waxed area,
- The wax cartridge is pressed into the skin so that wax is applied too thickly,
- The wax is not heated to the proper temperature.
Applying wax in any of the ways described above is not only a waste of the product, but may also cause skin irritation or produce unsatisfactory results.
The surface of the skin is temporarily red, swollen, discoloured, or irritated. Slight irritation following waxing is normal and should pass quickly.
A GREATER DEGREE OF IRRITATION MAY BE ATTRIBUTED TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING CAUSES:
- Hair strands were too short.
- The textile strip was removed using a slow, rather than a swift motion, with hairs removed in a direction perpendicular to the skin surface.
- The strip was not placed over the wax immediately following application and was not massaged into the wax for 3-4 seconds in the direction of hair growth to ensure proper adhesion.
- The strip was not removed in the direction of hair growth.
- Too much wax was applied. This may happen if the wax cartridge is pressed into, rather than rolled over the skin, or if the wax is applied repeatedly to the same area, rather than using a single, uniform motion.
WAIT 48 HOURS BEFORE WAXING THE SAME AREA AGAIN.
THE WAX WAS NOT SOFT OR WAS NOT DISPENSED EVENLY.
- The wax was not hot enough.
- The unit was not moved in the correct direction.
TO ACHIEVE THE BEST RESULTS!
- Always check the sensitivity of your skin.
- The treated skin area has to be clean and dry.
- Always check the temperature of the wax before applied onto the skin.
- Individual hairs should be at least 4-5 mm long if they are to be removed completely.
- Particularly sensitive skin may experience redness, irritation, or rashes. To avoid such reactions, use a soothing gel or cream after waxing.
- Do not use soap, make-up, or perfumes on the aff ected area for at least 24 hours after waxing.
- In winter, allow skin to warm to room temperature before waxing. In summer allow skin to cool. Wipe skin completely free of sweat using a disinfectant skin cleanser.
- Waxing immediately after bathing or showering may cause skin to become irritated. We recommend avoiding bathing or showering immediately prior to waxing.
- Skin should not be exposed to direct sunlight for at least 24 hours after waxing.
- Do not leave wax on the skin for a prolonged period of time.
- DO NOT WAX in any of the following sensitive areas: the interior of the nose or ear, nipples, or eyelids. DO NOT WAX if skin displays any of the following conditions: irritation, cuts, moles, bumps, other growths, birthmarks, liver spots, or burns.
- Do not apply wax to recently healed cuts or abrasions or near genital areas.
- DO NOT WAX during pregnancy, or if you suff er from varicose veins, diabetes, or any skin disease of any kind. If doubtful, consult your physician before using this product.
