Can I get waxed and tanned on the same day or do I need to do the waxing first? Also is it worth getting your arm pits done?! I shave almost every day but it only takes seconds

Also can anyone tell me the difference please between a spray tan and a st tropez tan? I thought they were the same thing?

I wax myself (armpits/bikini/ moustache blush ) and epilate my legs.

I wouldn't do a wax and tan together TBH but maybe the salons do a post wax treatment that would allow? You risk all the little speckly bits from the hair follicles .

I would exfoliate, wax, use TeaTree (I have skinwash) then the next day light exfoliate, moisturise and tan.

Im planning a spray tan for my 50th <<grin>> but I;ll stick to my own waxing.

I would definately say armpit waxing is worth it, the most annoying bit is waiting for the hairs to grow long enough, but over time they grow softer and finer, and no razor rash.

I don't think most salons will wax and tan on the same day. You might end up dotty!!

Definitely worth armpit waxing. It is fantastic and IME the least painful of all waxing bits. 3 seconds and it's done.
