There’s no age limit for waxing. However, as we age, it can be more challenging to wax thin and fragile skin that often comes with mature skin types. Here at Miss Cire, we not only provide you with a full line of wax for mature skin, but we show you how to use them to improve the look of mature skin along with superior hair removal. We’re all about waxing as a form of skincare. That’s why our formulas are made to stimulate blood flow and collagen production and to hydrate and replenish. So when you wax older skin, it doesn’t just stay smooth – it glows!

Mature skin isn’t just about aging; it’s about how you treat your skin and body as you do it. Sun damage, dehydration, inflammation, and free radical damage are some of the leading causes of skin aging. All of these are affected by diet and lifestyle.

Characteristics of Mature Skin

Dry/ Crepey Lacks water-retention and oil-production capabilities, making mature skin sensitive and fragile for waxing with breakage-prone, brittle hairs.
Lack of Firmness Slowed collagen and elastin production can lead to thin, sagging skin that needs more anchoring down when waxing to minimize discomfort.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles Dehydration lines and free radical damage break down skin, forming lines that make getting an even wax more difficult.
Pigmentation Excessive sun damage, post-acne scarring and age spots should cause us to take extra care when we wax older skin to avoid making pigmentation worse.

When we wax thin and fragile skin the right way, it can become more supple-looking and radiant.

Gentle Exfoliation Keeps mature skin from flaking and helps promote blood flow and collagen production for firmer-looking skin.
Moisturization Boosts the skin barrier for stronger, more replenished skin.
Detoxification Helps keep blood and lymph moving to remove waste and increase oxygen within the skin.

The best wax for mature skin should include high-quality ingredients that help soothe and hydrate to keep skin safe. Miss Cire’s hard and soft wax formulas are designed to wax older skin at a low-temperature melting point and have protective properties that leave skin feeling silky-smooth.

Your Waxing Warm Up

  1. Ensure that you’re using the best wax for mature skin.
  2. Turn on your warmer and turn the dial to the desired temperature written on your wax packaging.
  3. Melt wax down to a thick honey-like consistency for hard wax and a liquid for soft wax. Meltdowns can take approx. 20 minutes.
  4. Keep stirring the wax from the outer edge of the pot while checking on how your wax is behaving.
  5. Pay attention to the temperature of the wax to ensure that it's reacting properly.
  6. Check your wax’s heat on the inside of your wrist to ensure it’s safe to apply over mature skin

Waxing Mature Skin Prep

  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Cleanse the area with Miss Cire Pre-Depilatory Cooling Gel.

Applying Wax Over Mature Skin

  1. Work in smaller areas over mature skin to have more control over it.
  2. If a particular area is significantly thin, wrinkled, or loose, hold skin taut as you apply wax in the direction of hair growth.
  3. When using soft wax for mature skin, apply it thin and place and press a non-woven wax strip over it. Allow hard wax to set for a second, then press over it. Pressing helps the wax to adhere over hairs evenly. Never go over an area more than once with soft wax. You can reapply when using hard wax; just pay attention to the skin’s response. One pass is all skin can handle if it looks too red or inflamed.
  4. Don’t double-dip your wax stick back into the pot to avoid getting bacteria into your wax and cross-contaminating skin. Dispose of each waxing stick after each use.

How to Safely Remove Wax Strips from Mature Skin

  1. Hold mature skin extra taut and keep it anchored with one hand as you pull off your strip in the opposite direction of hair growth with the other hand.
  2. Pull straight back, never up and out when waxing mature skin. If you see skin raising up with the wax strip you’re removing, stop, re-anchor the skin, or remove in spurts.
  3. Taking a deep breath before each pull can help minimize discomfort.
  4. After pulling off each strip, press on the area to soothe the skin.
  5. When you’re all finished, immediately apply Miss Cire Post-Depilatory Emulsion to soothe, cleanse, protect and remove any remaining wax residue.

Waxing After Care for Mature Skin

  1. After waxing, wear loose clothing (cotton and linen fabrics are best), and avoid hot baths or pools until the next day.
  2. Only use gentle, nourishing, moisturizing products on mature skin after waxing. 24 hours after waxing, use Miss Cire Ingrown No More Hair Serum to boost the skin barrier and keep it clean and clear.
  3. Exfoliate once a week in between your waxing sessions to keep skin clear and smooth.
  4. Use heavy creams or moisturizers over damp skin to lock in moisture and keep skin soft.
  5. Consult a board-certified dermatologist if you experience swelling or redness even a few days after waxing.

Pro Tip: Be sure to shut off, unplug your warmer, and put the lid back on when you're not using it.
