  • ROLL-ON METHOD

  • HAIR REMOVAL FILM WAX WITH WAX BEADS

  • WORKING WITH SUGAR PASTE

ROLL-ON METHOD. Be on the safe side with wax cartridges from Sunzze!

  1. Heat the wax to 39-60°C in the wax warmer. Until it's liquid.
  2. First test the roller on a fleece strip.
  3. Test a small spot first to make sure it's not too warm.
  4. The skin should be free of fat and oils.
  5. Pre-treat the skin where the hair is to be removed with Sunzze Pre Wax Lotion.
  6. Leave the wax cartridge in the wax warmer and use the preheated wax cartridge to apply wax to an epilation strip. Check if the wax is warm enough.
  7. Apply the wax to the area to be treated in the direction of hair growth.
  8. Place the strip, leaving the end free.
  9. Press the strip firmly against the skin.
  10. Now grab the strip at the free end and pull off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth and parallel to the skin.
  11. Repeat the process in the next area. Apply the wax to the same spot no more than twice.
  12. Once the treatment is complete, remove the sticky residue with an after wax lotion.

Common mistakes when removing hair with warm wax:

  • Incorrect application (against the direction of hair growth) and incorrect removal (with the direction of hair growth), which does not pull the hair out of the skin.
  • Pulling the strip perpendicular to the skin will cause hematoma.
  • Repeated application of the wax in the same area damages the top layer of skin.

Contraindications: Acute and chronic skin diseases in the depilatory area. Varicose veins at the treatment site.

HAIR REMOVAL WITH WAX BEADS SUNZZE FILM WAX

  1. Heat the wax to 40-42°C.
  2. Treat the treatment area with an alcohol-based lotion to degrease the skin and remove cosmetic residue.
  3. Apply a small amount of talc.
  4. With a spatula, regardless of the hair growth direction but toward you, apply a thin layer of wax, leaving a small "chunk" sticking out to later serve as a puller handle (try to depilate the armpit in one piece) . CAUTION! Apply the wax calmly and do not rush, the spatula must be pressed against the skin with the necessary pressure.
  5. The wax hardens in 4-10 seconds. During this period, it will adhere to all hair (wax that is ready to be peeled off should not stick to hands when touched).
  6. Tighten skin in opposite direction of peeling, remove wax away from you and parallel to skin in one quick motion.
  7. Repeat the process in the next area.
  8. Once the hair removal is complete, treat the skin with a soothing, cooling and oil-free Italwax product.

Basic mistakes when using film wax:

  • The wax stretches like caramel and is difficult to remove.
    Reason: The wax didn't have enough time to harden.
    Measures: Put some talcum powder on the wax, wait 2-3 seconds and then peel it off.
  • There are still some hairs left after wax removal.
    Reason: The wax was applied superficially without pressing the spatula onto the skin, so the hair was not completely covered by the wax layer.
    Measures: Apply the wax to the skin that is still hairy, fix the hair more thoroughly in the wax by pressing the spatula firmly against the skin.
  • The wax does not harden.
    Reason: The layer of wax applied is too thick (as with classic hot wax depilation).
    Measures: Gently spread the wax over a larger area. Apply the wax thinner next time.
  • When you pull it off, the wax edges stick to the skin.
    Reason: The wax was applied unevenly.
    Measures: Spread the wax more evenly in the center and on the edges.

WORKING WITH SUNZZE SUGAR PASTE

Caution! Depilation with sugar requires special knowledge and practice!

  1. The sugar paste is always applied against the direction of hair growth and removed in the direction of hair growth, parallel to the skin.
  2. The paste should be applied with soft and gentle movements.
  3. It must always be removed with firm and quick movements.
  4. Before the paste is removed, the skin in the treated area must be pulled taut. This prevents sticking and reduces pain.
  5. After removing the paste, always touch the surface of the skin with your free hand. This reduces the pain ("anti-stress" movement).
  6. Do not treat the same area more than three times to avoid skin damage.
  7. Do not treat areas where the skin is obviously damaged or has neoplasms.

The most common mistake made by inexperienced beauticians when removing hair with sugar paste is the sugar paste sticking together. It just takes practice.

Corrective Actions:

Option 1: Pull the skin taut on the bonded area and remove the paste in one quick motion.

Option 2: Apply an additional amount of talc to the bonded area, drag the bonded paste to the talc-treated area and remove the paste in one quick motion.

Option 3: Apply a new piece of paste to the bonded area, drag it over the bonded area, and then remove it in one quick motion.

Option 4: Place a strip of non-woven fabric over the bonded area, press firmly against the skin and then remove the strip of non-woven fabric along with the paste.

Option 5: Wipe away the stuck paste with a damp (warm water) cloth, or wash it off under warm running water. Please note, however, that you can only continue with the hair removal once the skin is completely dry.

The turn to a suntan - and the risks?

Extensive sunbathing only gradually became fashionable in the 1920s. Those who could afford it spent their free time on the southern beaches and enjoyed the warm rays of sunshine on their skin. While most people today take for granted a protective agent against short-term consequences such as sunburn and stings, as well as long-term effects such as light-induced skin aging, pigment disorders and skin cancer, this was the exception a hundred years ago.

Although people are increasingly exposing themselves to UV radiation due to more revealing swimwear and sports, very few people were aware of the health-damaging consequences. At the same time as the trend towards sunbathing, various agents intended to protect the skin were already being developed independently of one another. One of the pioneers was Franz Greiter, who came from Austria and got a severe sunburn after climbing the Piz Buin. Using his knowledge of chemistry, he mixed a cream that should prevent this in the future. In 1946 he finally founded the Piz Buin brand, named after the mountain that had inspired him to develop a sunscreen. The company is still one of the largest suppliers of sun protection products today.

The importance of sun protection factor

It was also Greiter who coined the term sun protection factor, LSF or SPF for short (Sun Protection Factor). This indicates how many times longer you can stay in the sun without risking sunburn. This extended protection time is calculated with the second factor, the self-protection time. This varies depending on the skin type. While it is about ten minutes for fair, Scandinavian types, people with dark skin can be exposed to the sun without protection for more than an hour and a half. This skin type also has a lower risk of skin cancer. The lowest sun protection factor recognized by the European Union is 6, the highest is 50. People with light skin in particular should protect themselves adequately. Children should always be protected with a sunscreen with a high SPF. But here, too, it should be remembered that complete protection from UV radiation is not possible and that you should therefore keep the time you are exposed to the blazing sun to a minimum.
