Maybe you have been waxing for years or finally worked up the courage to go for the first time. Either way here is a few tips to get the most out of your waxing experience;
Grow your hair!-Usually a weeks worth is enough, you want it to be 1/4 inch in length. If you can stand it 3 weeks is even better! Then all three hair cycles will be pulled at once and you will have less regrowth and the next session will be a lot less painful.
Exfoliate!-Use an alula or body brush to remove excess dry skin and help pull up any ingrown hairs.
Reduce pain!-There are so many things you can do to help with pain. Take an ibuprofen. Don’t get waxed 3 days before or after your period. Your skin is most sensitive during this time. Avoid caffeine for 5 hours before getting waxed will greatly reduce sensitivity. Caffeine restricts the blood vessels so skin is not getting as much blood flow which increases sensitivity.
Exfoliate!-Exfoliate using both chemically and with a body brush. This will remove excess skin and prevent hair from getting trapped under the skin.
Take it easy!-Avoid any heavy sweating activities, such as working out, for 24 hours. This will avoid bacteria getting into your recently opened pores.
Make your next appointment!-Each consecutive time you get waxed you will experience less pain and get better results. Pulling your hair from the root will damage the follicle resulting in thinner hair and eventually hair loss.
Always be beach ready!
