WAXING CARE

Waxing, which removes unwanted hair from its roots, delivers a surprising amount of satisfaction after a short period of discomfort.

The more you wax, the less body hair you will have to remove, and the body hair becomes softer and thinner. As a result, it allows for an entirely level of cleanliness compared to using a razor.

If you don’t have the time to regularly visit a waxing salon or don’t want to rely on strangers for hair removal, then you should use Allongs. With Allongs you can enjoy smooth skin every day.

INGROWN CARE

When removing body hair, before & after care is very important. If moisturization and exfoliation isn’t carried out properly, hair may not be able to get through the dead skin cells and may result in ingrown hair.

Ingrown hair isn’t only disgusting to see but may cause itchiness and inflammation. However, don’t scrub your skin with a rough scrub or try to remove it with a tweezer!

Manage your body hair with Allongs’ safe and effective ingrown hair care products.

Y-ZONCARE

Special care is needed for a woman’s Y-zone.
Due to the lack of ventilation, germs can easily multiply and if left unchecked, may lead to inflammatory diseases.

In addition, lymphatic glands and blood veins in the thighs where toxins are excreted are in the Y-zone.
Y-Zone care is not just for your genitals but for your overall health.

Use Allongs products to properly care for the Y-zone. You will become much more beautiful and healthier.

FAQ

Q, What does “Allongs” mean? 

As the beauty care brand for Moumou Cosmetics, the brand name “Allongs” comes from the French word “allons”.

Discover products at Allongs that are much needed but are difficult to find in other brands.


Q. Where can you purchase Allongs products?

The official online mall for Allongs is www.allongs.co.kr. Allongs products can also be purchased in popular online malls as well as in all Olive Young stores.

Q. What are the advantages of waxing?

By getting rid of unnecessary body hair, your skin will look clear and pure. During the waxing process, dead skin cells and sebum are naturally removed and as a result the skin tone becomes brighter and the skin texture becomes smoother.


Q. Doesn’t waxing make body hair thicker and pores wider?

You have nothing to worry about! Like hair removal, the hair is removed from its root, and each time you wax your body hair will grow thinner and will not grow at all later on.


Q. What are some things I should know before waxing?

Don’t shave or cut body hair before the waxing treatment. The body hair must be a certain length for waxing to be done.


Q. How do you care for skin after waxing?

You should take care to make sure that ingrown hair doesn’t occur. Ingrown hair occurs when hair is unable to grow through the skin surface and grows into skin. This will occur with any artificial type of hair removal such as waxing, shaving, laser hair removal. Ingrown hair can result in folliculitis and using specialized products is recommended.


Q. What should I be careful about when waxing?

Since you are removing hair from its roots, sight cuts may occur during the treatment. Therefore, you should avoid going to saunas, public baths, swimming pools, and tanning salons for three days.


Q. Can you use the hard wax in the self-waxing kit for any part of the body?

The hard wax in the self-waxing kit is a certified product that is used by professionals. Unlike other waxes where you remove hair using fabric, with hard wax, you directly apply the wax onto the skin and remove the wax itself. Therefore, hard wax is very safe, with no pain or damage to the skin. By becoming familiar with the application method, anyone can comfortably and safely use hard wax on the face or on the Y-zone.


Q. When using the hard wax in the self-waxing kit, can you reuse the wax?

For good hygiene, you can only take the necessary amount according to the body part. If stored in a sterile container after usage, it can be reused.


Q. How often should waxing be done?

Around 28 to 30 days, which is when dead cells are created, is appropriate for waxing. Sebum and dead skin cells are removed during the waxing treatment and so waxing too often may make skin sensitive.


Q. Is it okay do self-waxing in conjunction with laser hair removal?

Absolutely! When using waxing in conjunction with laser hair removal, you will quickly have soft and smooth skin. Waxing makes the skin smooth while laser hair removal destroys hair roots, rapidly reducing the amount of hair. You should first go through waxing and then laser hair removal a week after that. Another three weeks later you should go through waxing again. After going through this process five times, you will see a 100% hair removal.


Q. Can pregnant women also use hard wax in the self-waxing kit?

You can safely use it even during pregnancy. Since it is the same wax used by Moumou Waxing Studio when treating pregnant women, the wax is much less painful. Also, it is very safe because the wax itself is removed and it isn’t absorbed by the skin.

Q. What is ingrown hair?

Ingrown hair is a condition when hair is unable to rise through to the surface of the skin but instead curls back or grows sideways inside the skin.


Q. How should I take care of ingrown hair?

Regularly exfoliate the skin to make sure that dead skin cells don’t clog up the pores of your skin. Normal exfoliator products may be insufficient for this, so it is recommended that you use an exfoliator product designed for ingrown hair.


Q. I already have ingrown hair. What can I do to treat it?

First, you should never try to remove ingrown hair with tweezers! Use an exfoliator designed for ingrown hair to make the surface of the skin soft and make sure that the skin gets enough moisture. If the ingrown hair has grown within the skin severely, you should have it removed at a professional waxing salon or at a dermatologist.

Q. Why is Y-zone care important?

Inflammation in the Y-zone can occur due to wearing tight clothes that don’t allow for ventilation, direct stimulation caused by sitting for long periods of time, as well as stress and an irregular lifestyle. If the Y-zone isn’t healthy, your body will go off balance and will be vulnerable to various illnesses. The hygienic care of a women’s Y-zone is directly tied to a women’s health.


Q. Why are Y-zone care items necessary?

It is good for women to maintain subacidity in their Y-zones. Since general body cleansers and soaps are close to being alkaline, they might destroy the Y-zone balance. If it is difficult to check for the ingredients of each product, it is safer to use products designed for the genitals.


Q. What should one be careful about when using Y-zone care items?

After use, make sure to tightly close the cap. Although this is quite obvious, there are many people that shower with the bottles open. You should take extra care of the product as it may easily go bad due to the humidity and temperature inside the shower.


Q. Can men or pregnant women use the products?

As the products lack any chemical preservatives, men, pregnant women and even young children can use the products.


Q. Does waxing help with Y-zone care?

During menstruation, the balance of the body is broken, and the y-zone may smell and become itchy. This may be worsened when the secretion from the pubic mixes with sweat. This problem can be prevented by waxing the Y-zone.
