You can also use any product based on essential or other fatty oils. For example, turpentine or skin cleansing oil used in this procedure. A sponge soaked in oil should be used to wipe the machine, then wiped with alcohol at least 40 degrees.
Today, the cosmetics market offers a huge selection of wax pastes and related products for self-waxing. With so many to choose from, how do you really 'pick the right' wax?

Waxes, in their scope of use, can be divided into the following types:
- By melting point.
- By product form.
- By purpose.

Waxes by melting point

Cold wax is the most affordable and convenient way to remove hair, it does not require additional equipment and is great for self-treatment. It is usually available in strips that can be heated by hand before use. This method is safer than using hot material, as there is no danger of burning, but it is considered more painful and can irritate sensitive skin. Wax strips are difficult to remove hairs that are too short, and improper execution of the procedure is fraught with the risk of ingrown hairs.

Warm wax - most commonly available in cartridges with a roller, sometimes in jars, and requires heating before the procedure. A special heater or water bath is used to prepare the paste. Melted to a viscous honey at a temperature of 37-38 degrees, the mass is applied to the skin with a roller or spatula, then removed with a paper or non-woven strip. Such wax pastes can contain various additives that have a soothing and softening effect on the skin.

Hot wax, preferred by masters in salons, is made from natural natural resins that include beeswax, paraffin, natural oils and plant extracts as additives. Hot wax is suitable for removing vegetation in delicate areas, capable of gripping the shortest and finest hairs.

With hot wax paste, the skin in the waxing area warms up and the pores open, reducing the pain and trauma to a minimum. But you have to be careful not to burn yourself, because the melting temperature of the mass reaches 50-55 degrees, depending on the components in the composition.
After heating to a suitable consistency in a wax-melter, microwave oven or water bath, the paste is applied to the skin area with a spatula or spatula. As it hardens on the skin, it forms a thick film that can be removed without the use of strips.
Recently, film wax has been gaining popularity, which, in addition to the usual hot wax components, contains rubber and vinyl polymers. This gives more plasticity - this material when applied repeats the relief of the skin, so is able to better remove unwanted hair. It is available in the form of granules and in cans. The temperature of the ready-to-use film wax is 39 degrees, avoiding burns.

Waxes by form of product

Jar wax - due to its sheer volume, it is more commonly used in salons with high client traffic. The can waxes are available in different densities for different parts of the body. To remove the mass from the skin, strips of paper or non-woven material are used, which are placed on a layer of wax, and then plucked sharply against the growth of hair.

Wax pellets are a variation of can wax, but are gentler in texture and do not provoke allergic reactions.

Wax pellets (film) is most effective for use in the bikini zone, underarms and face. This form of release is convenient because you can easily measure the right amount of material. No stripes are needed when using it - it holds its shape perfectly and comes off the skin in a single piece of film.
One of the most popular forms for self-application is cartridge waxes. Thanks to the special roller in the design, the cartridges allow the material to be applied quickly, in an even, thin strip. Cassette wax requires heating, so you need a special heater - a wax-melter - to use it. You need paper or cloth strips to remove the mass from the skin. This variant of wax is suitable for any area of the body, the composition and additives should be chosen based on the area of application.

Wax strips are a handy option for travelling or on holiday as they are easy to use and dispose of. It's economical as one strip can be used several times. But it's inferior to other methods in efficiency - the thin layer of wax on the strip can't always grip short hairs.

Waxes by purpose

Universal - used for the entire body, including the bikini area and face.
For the extremities, chest and back - warm wax is usually used on these areas as the hairs are not as stiff and don't sit very deep.
For the face - softer wax, usually warm, with a special narrow roller is used.
For bikini and underarms - only hot wax is always used for intimate waxing.

Advantages and disadvantages of waxing

Ways of depilation

Let's find out what depilation methods exist today.
In such modern times, depilation is in high demand. There are several ways to depilation and to avoid complications, you need to choose the method of hair removal that suits you.

Tweezers, razors and electric depilatories

Hair can be plucked with tweezers, an epilator or shaved. While inexpensive and at home, the disadvantages are obvious: Razors can't remove hair for more than three to five days and are known to irritate the skin, while plucking can be painful.

Waxing and shugaring

Waxing and shugaring are two summer-appropriate methods.
Waxing can get rid of hair quickly, and the waxing procedure lasts two to four weeks.
This kind of waxing is best left to trained craftsmen in a beauty salon. However, if you can't afford it, you can do the procedure yourself at home. Ready-made wax strips for different areas are available in any cosmetic shop.
For waxing all but the bikini and armpit areas, the cassette wax is ideal. In order to carry out the procedure, just apply the wax along the hair growth on the desired area, stick a bandage tape on top and then pull the tape off sharply strictly against the growth of hair.

Shugaring can be called one of the best methods of depilation, because sugar pastes have a natural composition, they are hypoallergenic. At home such a procedure is difficult to implement, but nevertheless it is possible. You will need sugar in a cartridge and cloth bandage. It is worth noting that the technique shugaring directly opposite the technique of wax depilation, the composition should be applied against the growth of hair, and remove it strictly on the growth of hair.
With regard to waxing areas such as the bikini zone and armpits are better to trust a qualified specialist depilation.
One of the advantages of these methods is the complete removal of hair with its bulbs. New hairs begin to grow in 2 to 4 weeks, no stubble appears. The disadvantages include pain, high probability of ingrown hairs, irritation, swelling and allergies, not suitable for varicose veins.

Photoepilation and laser

Photoepilation and laser hair removal are effective methods. The hair is removed with the help of special devices under the supervision of a specialist. This kind of hair removal can only be done in a salon with the help of a qualified specialist. It is expensive, but masters promise a complete cessation of hair growth after several procedures. However, the result is outweighed by many contraindications and side effects: it is not recommended to use these methods in summer, because contact of skin to the sun is prohibited, the procedure may be very painful and require painkillers, dermatologists have warned of the possibility of skin cancer after laser and photoepilation.

Using hair removal creams

Removing unwanted vegetation with creams is a painless and inexpensive method. The method can be used at home. The result of such depilation depends on the composition and quality of the chosen product. Practice shows that the depilation cream is able to deal only with fine and soft hair, coarse stubble, they just "not take" .
Professional creams gently remove hairs, contain vitamins and oils for the skin, which minimize irritation. 

Products used before waxing

Products used prior to the procedure are a must. Every craftsman is required to have at least pre-depilation gel and talcum powder at their disposal before depilation.
The purpose of the pre-depilation gel is to prepare the skin:
- clean, degrease and disinfect.
- Reduce depilation time through better adhesion of the paste to the hairs.
- Expand the hair follicle mouth for better penetration of the paste.
- Get a mild analgesic effect: a cooling menthol or other similar components.

Of particular importance among the means to depilation has a talcum powder, which is used after the gel, before the application of sugar paste. Its use is an indispensable part of the hair removal process performed by a professional craftsman. Talcum powder removes excess moisture and skin grease, lifts hairs, serves as a protective layer, protecting the skin from trauma. The fine texture of the talcum powder does not clog pores and facilitates a quick and comfortable procedure.

Remedies after the depilation procedure

Any hair removal procedure causes minimal redness, and for some, even irritation. Therefore it is very important to take proper care of your skin after the procedure. The ingredients in the after-depilation lotion protect the skin during this period, soften and soothe it, close the pores, not allowing bacteria to cause inflammation. Not only talcum powder, pre- and post-depilation products, but also the follow-up home care will make the removal of unwanted hair perfect. Regular use of creams and oils will moisturise the skin, soften it, prevent fine hairs from growing in and slow down their growth. The combination of products will make the depilation procedure painless and fast, without irritation and redness, while giving you the opportunity to have healthy, sensual and silky skin.
After the depilation procedure, the desired area is treated with a care product. There are several types of products for different areas:

- After waxing your hands and feet in spring and summer, you should use lighter textures, such as lotions.
- In winter, it's best to use an oil after depilation on larger surfaces, as it nourishes and saturates the skin with micronutrients.
- For sensitive areas it is better to use creamy textures, as they moisturise the skin well. An emulsion is especially good to use as it prevents moisture loss.

Advice after depilation

After any hair removal method, the skin becomes injured and very sensitive. Take note of a few simple rules and stick to them for 24 hours after the procedure.

1. You must not visit: sauna, swimming pool, gym, solarium, beach, swimming in lakes and rivers, lying in a bath (a shower is allowed), massage room, spa treatments (wraps).

2. After bikini zone depilation, it is advisable to refrain from intimacy for a day and wash with antiseptic instead of water.

3. After showering, a moisturising emulsion or lotion should be applied to maintain the water balance of the skin and restore the lipid layer. Soft and moisturised skin will easily allow thinning hair to pass through during growth.

4. Do not apply deodorant to the depilated areas. Especially right after the procedure! It can cause irritation, itching and dry skin.

5. Do not wear tight or synthetic clothes during the first days after the procedure.

6. Do not sunbathe! Sunbathing can be a real nightmare for the skin after waxing - it can lead to inflammation and even burns.
