Depending on the body part being waxed, traditional soft wax is generally used. Soft wax is applied to the skin very thinly and a muslin strip is applied on top of the wax to remove the hair. It is applied warm to the skin with a waxing spatula and is best suited for larger areas. Soft wax is also better on fine hair because it can adhere to the hair better than hard wax; unfortunately, because it also adheres more to the skin, it can remove a lot more skin than desired and this can end up irritating the skin. For this reason, soft wax may not be the best choice for people with sensitive skin.
