We all have had our first time at trying out something new we are not very sure of- sometimes it can be awkward too! It is that time of the year we all plan our summer getaways and a bikini wax is a must before the holiday. If you have never bothered to get one, we get that you might be anxious and nervous about how to go about it.
So, we have put together 5 things you must know before signing up for bikini wax!
1. Shower First
We all run to our appointments in a hurry. However, it would be great if you take out the time to shower and clean yourself up before you head to the salon. You will be fresh and smelling good and your beautician would thank you for this.
2. Don’t Forget To Trim
It is advisable to trim your hair and not not shave it before you head out. Experts suggest that your hair should be at least a quarter inch long. The wax can’t pick up really short hair and this could lead to waxing multiple times. We don’t want that do we? So trim your hair or get it trimmed by the salon expert before she gets to do the main thing.
3. Exposure Can’t Be Avoided
Don’t be nervous, your salon specialist is a professional. She would have been doing the job for several times a day for a while. Let go of your inhibitions when you opt for a bikini wax. You will have to be exposed down your waist, and also required to spread and stretch your legs in different directions.
4. Avoid Exercises
Your area might be red, sore and sensitive after the wax. We advise you to avoid heavy exercises for at least 24 hours especially if it’s your first time. Also, always keep your period in mind. It is recommended to wax at least 3 days prior to your date due to sensitivity reasons. Waxing during your period is a definite no-no due to hygiene issues.
5. Get Comfy
Opt for airy and breezy clothes as it is going to get super sensitive and avoid tight clothes as it tends to irritate the skin. Yes girls, it is going to hurt. Create a distraction to your mind by listening to music and take the focus away from the pain.
