There aren’t too many at home beauty treatments more intimidating than waxing. Which is why it’s so crucial that you get started on the best foot and that’s with the best at home wax kit. “It’s important to use the safest and gentlest wax kits available to avoid irritating, burning and potentially scarring your skin.” says Blair Murphy-Rose, MD, FAAD, dermatologist and clinical assistant professor at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center. “The most important thing to be aware of is that at-home waxing is not without risk and that you can damage your skin with home waxing kits.”
But don’t be scared—if you do it right, at-home waxing has its perks. It saves you major $$$ when it’s a DIY job instead of seeing a pro, and the stinky strips from back in the day are a thing of the past.
