Can’t believe that I’m doing this for him. Well, some thoughts never go old.
But once it’s over it isn’t as painful as you think it would’ve been. We know and we can hear you and sure ‘razor is less painful’. But then again most women swear that a professional wax is really worth it when you feel that perfectly smooth skin.
So before you finally give bikini waxing a try for swim season, here are a few things that you should keep in mind.
1. Get the right length
So before you decide to treat your Lady V with a waxing makeover, make sure that your hair length is quarter of an inch. When your hair is long, the waxing will be more painful. However, if the hair is too short it won’t be enough to grab and you won’t get the desired results. So get the length right.
2. No waxing while you’re bleeding!
Nobody would give waxing a thought when periods are on. But just in case you’re a little adventurous the let us tell you that the wax could hurt more. During these days generally, women suffer from cramps and something like waxing should be avoided. Ladies go easy!
3. Choose the best studio/salon
Get your background check done before you visit the salon. Choose a salon which is high in sanitary, and is professional. Check if their customers had a good experience, if yes, then be sure of your experience too. But if you don’t get the right recommendation then you always ask your friend, ‘google.’ And once you get hold of a place, take a stroll around and check on the ambiance and cleanliness.
4. Kill the pain away
Having second thoughts because of the pain? We have you covered, so before your appointment, pop an ibuprofen or an aspirin an hour early. It helps in numbing away the pain. Moisturizing will make hair softer and wax easier. No more excuses now!
5. Go comfy on the clothes
When you’re getting dressed for your bikini waxing session, make sure you’re wearing super comfortable clothes. Because that after-burn really burns. Throw in those loose leggings or that pair of baggy pajamas, in short, any clothes that do not create friction in the waxed area. Avoid your favourite skinny jeans for a day.
6. Post-wax, the redness, and the bumps
Post- bikini waxing scenes could be a little red and a little bumpy, almost like chicken skin. And yes! It is absolutely normal and it will disappear in a few hours. Making your Miss V look perfect and attractive.
7. Keep that hydrocortisone handy
It’s all about that aftercare. Your bikini waxing stylist will apply some soothing cream to calm the area. But it is always better to have some hydrocortisone in your bag. Don’t forget to ask your stylist to suggest some post-wax products. But if you are a person who prefers home remedies then cold milk is the best solution.
8. Workout cheat day!
Here’s your final alert! Your areas need to rest for the day. And your bikini waxing routine could be your excuse to skip the gym. Because irritating your waxed area isn’t a good idea at all. Apart from everything, you’re good to go!
