So, you’re thinking about getting a bikini wax…
For many people, the thought of getting their first bikini wax can be stress-inducing. It doesn’t have to be! Here’s what you need to know to ease your mind and make your first (or next) bikini wax as comfortable as possible. Once you wax, you won’t go back! 😉
1) Hey shorty
Your hair should ideally be 1/4″ to 1/2″ long. If it’s too short, the wax won’t be able to grab the hair. If the hair is way too long, it will be more painful for you (and your aesthetician) and will probably take longer than you would like.
2) So fresh and so clean (clean)
A lot of girls feel uneasy about having someone “down there”, so simply showering before your appointment can make you feel a lot less self-conscious, and the warm water can make it easier for the hair to be removed.
3) Operation Exfoliation
Exfoliate the night before or morning of your appointment. Exfoliating will help a ton with ingrown hairs, and doing this even once a week on a regular basis can make a big difference.
4) Moisturize my hoo-ha?
If your skin gets really dry, especially during winter months, it’s a great idea to moisturize. Doing this after you exfoliate the night before your treatment can really help prepare your skin for the wax and allow everything to go as smoothly as possible.
5) Do not shave in between waxes. I repeat. Don’t do it.
If it has been a long time since your last wax, or if you are one of those au-natural types, resist the urge to shave before your scheduled appointment if possible. Shaving can mess up the growing out process and make it more painful. If it’s a jungle down there, simply trim the hair carefully with scissors.
6) Let’s (not) get physical
Avoid working out (or doing other sweaty stuff) for 24-48 hours after your wax. Tight workout pants and the sweat can be very irritating to the skin. This can also cause breakouts.
7) Don’t make me wait
Don’t wait too long between appointments. Doing so will make your appointment more uncomfortable and most likely take longer. Everyone is different, but the ideal wait time is around a month.
