Read on and find out how to make the experience as smooth as possible – literally and figuratively.
Exfoliate before and after. No one likes ingrown hairs, especially your bikini line. Exfoliating before your appointment will get rid of your dead skin cells and make it easier for your waxer to get every little hair. After your appointment, exfoliating will keep the ingrowns away by clearing dead skin cells away from the hair follicles.
Wear comfortable clothes to your appointment. We know you look good in your skinny jeans, but avoid wearing tight clothes to your appointment. This can cause chafing, which is the last thing you want when your skin is feeling sensitive. Keep it loose.
Afterwards. Refrain from touching freshly waxed skin as this can encourage irritation. You want to treat that sensitive area with care. Opt for a shower instead of a hot bath. Any soaking or steaming should be avoided. When the hair follicle is empty, it is more prone to bacteria entering. Stay out of that swimming pool.
We know you’ll want to show off that bikini line, but stay out of the sun for at least 48 hours. Waxing can remove skin cells that offer protection from the sun. This means you’ll burn easier. You may even get dark skin spots (called hyperpigmentation).
Keeping it up. Make your waxing appointments about a month apart. You’ll find that your wax will be less painful because the hair is at the ideal length to be removed between weeks three and give. The longer you wait, the longer hair means that the removal process is more intense.
You’ve got this, and we’ve got the best waxing salons in the Bookwell directory. Make an appointment with one of them today.
