Incredible Tricks To Make Waxing Less Painful:
1.When you’re waxing your legs, start with the ankle. If you’re doing your arm, start with an area the size of a large watch. It’s not easy, especially your first time, and putting wax on your entire leg area at once before removing the wax will make it dry and hard, plus it won’t remove hair from the root.
2.Doing your own eyebrows is no easy feat. Here’s the trick: Grab an eyeliner and mark the areas where you want to apply the wax so you have a guideline. Once you’re finished, remove any excess wax with baby oil.
3.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. Proceed with caution.
4.At the spa, we use it for really serious jobs, like laser hair removal, but I swear by numbing cream. Put it on 30 minutes before a wax.
5.Exfoliating first will get rid of the layer of dead skin that’s likely trapping hairs. You’ll allow the hair to come to the surface, so the hair can be properly pulled from the root on the first try.
6.If it’s your first time, ask your esthetician for a cold compress. It can just be cold water right after a wax, or if you’re dealing with a more upscale spa, like Colours Mobile Spa in Calgary, there may be a soothing rose water toner available too!
7.Ideally, you want to be laying down or angled backwards while you have your eyebrows waxed, otherwise you can get wax on your eyelashes or other parts of your eye, and you’ll have to use a ton of oil to get that off.
8.You’re super sensitive from about five days before through the end of your period. Avoid any and all waxing at this time if possible. After your period you’ll be fine — in fact, a woman’s pain tolerance is highest about three to four days after her period.
