Numbing cream

Numbing cream can be the best option for the people who have sensitive skin. The cream numbs the skin and reduces the sensation of pain in the area to which they are applied. You have to be careful when you applying it. Don’t leave it on the skin more than 1 hour and if you have sensitive skin consult your Doctor before using.

No sweat

Wash and dry the area to be waxed. Don’t apply creams or deodorants on the day of the waxing. Any oil or moisture will not let the wax adhere to your hair.

Have a hot shower before you get a wax

Warm water and steam will soften the skin and open up the pores. A long soak in the bath will make it much easier for the hairs to come out and it will make the whole process a lot less painful.

Do it right after your period

Your period makes you more sensitive to pain, so never go for a wax or do it just before your period.  The body is less sensitive to pain during and just after your period, so the least painful time for waxing will be in the first few days, right after a period. That’s when your pain tolerance is at its highest.

After waxing

Wear soft, loose-fitting clothing

The first few hours after you have had a wax, your skin will be tender and a little bit sore, especially, if you are having a bikini wax. The best clothing is to wear after a wax is loose fitting fabrics. Tight fitting clothes will aggravate the skin and cause in growing hairs. Natural fibre fabrics are better because man-made fibres can trap sweat and that could irritate and block up your pores after a wax.

Avoid heating

Just after waxing is done, your skin will remain in a very sensitive stage. Thus, you have to be careful about your skin after waxing. Heat and hot elements can cause damage to your skin. The best way is to stay away from heat when you have finished your waxing.

Massage your skin

Massage will be a wonderful process, just after waxing. It will provide ultimate care to your skin. So don’t forget to massage yourself.
