The bikini wax is a pretty standard grooming ritual for plenty of women (and men) on the Gold Coast. With sunny weather, blue skies and some of the best surf in the country, spontaneous trips to the beach are pretty much a given. So it’s important to stay on top of your grooming game, and keep things looking, at the very least, a teensy bit tidy downstairs.
If you’re heading in for a bikini wax any time soon, here are some things to keep in mind, whether it’s your first time on the waxing table, or you can’t remember the last time you picked up a razor (we applaud you).
To allow the wax to get a proper grip on your hair down there, avoid shaving at least two-three weeks prior to your wax. You want the hair to be at least 1/4-1/2 an inch long.
Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and open up the pores, allowing for more effective hair removal, so do a thorough scrub just before your appointment.
And remember, right after a wax your hair follicles are open and exposed to the big, bad world of infection, so exfoliating the area regularly will help to keep those nasties at bay. Just make sure you wait until 3-5 days after your wax to first exfoliate to avoid unnecessary irritation.
Moisturising the area daily helps to keep the skin soft and supple, allowing new hairs to grow in without a hitch. If you’re particularly prone to ingrowns, invest in a tea tree lotion with antibacterial properties.
So there you have it - look after your skin and you’ll be a waxing convert in no time. Book your next bikini wax on the Gold Coast with Bookwell today.
