Ever woken up in horror because the day of your waxing appointment has finally arrived? We’ve been there too and is definitely something we all dread.
Whether you’re going to the salon or you’re more of a DIY person, these tricks will save you from all kinds of hurt.
You’ll never shed a tear or scream ever again.
1. Exercising or taking a yoga class is a good idea.
Taking a yoga class before getting a Brazilian will make you more limber. The more flexible you are, the better the waxer can do,” expert esthetician Leyda says. If the process goes faster, you’ll be in pain for less time. You’ll get your daily routine done and will look great in that Bikini, is a win-win!
2. Let the wax cool way down before going south.
“When you’re talking pubic areas, a little cooler is always better. What’s warm on your hand is hot down there. People apply it way too hot and that can actually take some skin off,” Leyda explained.
3. Use a numbing cream
Apply the cream on that hairy area at least 30-minutes before your waxing session and you won’t feel a thing.
4. Take a pain reliever
Whichever over-the-counter pain reliever you usually take, can be taken about 30 minutes prior to waxing to help minimize the pain.
5. Change your focus
During those dreadful minutes try to put your attentions somewhere else. Some people like to watch Netflix while doing their waxing at home. Whatever distraction works for you, do it!
6. Give your oatmeal a new use
Oatmeal isn’t only a good breakfast, try mixing oatmeal paste, honey and lemon juice and you’ll end up with one of nature’s best hair removers! If facial hair is your problem, simply rub it on top the hairy spot and let it sit for 15 minutes then wash your face with warm water. Cero pain!
7. Exfoliating the areas you’ll be waxing
Exfoliating first will get rid of the layer of dead skin that’s likely trapping hairs. Your body will thank you.
