Hair Removal by Waxing: FAQs If you are pain-sensitive, please take your preference of pain killer 30 minutes prior to your appointment. This will make you relaxed. Please shower to clean the skin of any excess oils etc. Do not wear any lotion, deodorant, oil, or any other skin care products on the area you intend to have sugared. Come for your waxing appointment with clean, dry skin. Do not drink alcohol before your waxing appointment. Do not expose your skin to the sun for 24 hours prior to your appointment as we cannot treat skin that is sunburned.
