Seasonal Advice- now the weather is hotting up!
For all hair removal clients i.e waxing and electrolysis, please avoid letting the sun on the area for at least 48 hours prior and after your procedure so it doesn’t cause the skin to become over heated, sensitive and sore. This includes even small areas like lip and eyebrows, even if its for a short amount of time in the sun just in the car for a 5 minute journey!

A Broad spectrum protection means it covers you for UVA & UVB rays- All Dermalogicas products are Broad Spectrum
A physical sunscreen which contains Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide are suitable for a sensitive skin
If you have one product that contains an SPF in doesn’t mean you don’t need any other product with an SPF in. By having two or more products that contain an SPF means you are more than likely achieving a satisfactory level of protection for the skin due to application techniques and spreading coverage of the product.
