How to do gentle waxing for mature skin

In our everyday work, we wax more and more women and men of all ages. There is no fixed age limit and especially in the face, more and more unwanted, sometimes bristly hairs appear over the years that need to be removed. Read here, what you should pay attention to when waxing mature skin and which products we recommend for it.

Mature skin is sensitive

Provided the skin is healthy, there is nothing to be said against waxing even at an advanced age. The PINK Waxing Consultation Sheet makes it easy to determine whether a face waxing can be performed. Especially with mature skin, however, you should work very carefully, because as a rule, the skin of older customers is very dry. The older the client, the less lipids and moisture can be produced by the skin. The epidermal protective covering becomes thinner and thus more vulnerable with age. The skin scales lie loosely on the epidermis due to the lack of lipids. In case of an incorrect waxing technique, such a client can basically have more skin scales removed than people with a normal, mixed, or seborrheic skin. Therefore, good preparation of the skin and high-quality waxes are essential here.

PINK SkinCare Lotion and PreCare Oil

Good preparation is key

To prepare the vulnerable skin of older clients for face waxing, proceed as follows: First, remove dirt, makeup, and cream from the skin with one to two pumps of PINK SkinClean lotion and a cotton pad. Then apply one pump of PINK PreCare Oil evenly to the face using a cotton pad. The oil covers the skin like a wafer-thin protective film and prevents flaky skin from being removed. This small step works wonders and allows waxing up to old age.

The optimal wax for mature skin

For face waxing on mature skin, Next Generation Wax is the perfect choice. This premium wax is extremely gentle on the skin thanks to valuable oils and its low application temperature. At the same time, it is very efficient and great for grabbing those stubborn bristles on the chin. It also removes downy hair around the cheek area to the neck very thoroughly and quickly. Under no circumstances should facial hair be removed with roll-ons.

Next Generation Wax is applied with a wooden spatula. After a short waiting time of about 10 seconds, it can be removed without the aid of a fleece strip. If necessary, waxing can be repeated even on mature skin. To do so, simply re-apply the PINK PreCare Oil.

PINK SkinCare AfterCare Cream and SkinCool Gel

Gentle care after waxing

After the treatment, it is important to take good care of the mature skin. To do this, apply one to two pumps of PINK AfterCare Cream using a cotton pad. This antibacterial after-treatment cream intensively moisturizes the skin, soothes, and helps the hair follicles to close. To quickly reduce redness and give the skin a fresh, relaxed feeling, the treatment is completed with PINK SkinCool Gel.

At the end of the first waxing treatment, customers receive the PINK Customer Flyer. It provides them with quick and easy information on the most important dos and don’ts after waxing.

My secret tip for you: It’s all in the mix

If the hair is removed as part of a facial treatment, a cooling and soothing pack or mask can be applied for about 10-15 minutes after the face waxing. A little PINK AfterCare Cream and PINK SkinCool Gel can be stirred into the mask. This perfect mixture refreshes all the more and leaves the mature skin radiant.
