Getting a bikini wax for first time is almost as fearsome as going to a dentist. You can do it at home or go to the salon. If you want to master the home bikini wax, here is how you can.
Mastering the at-home bikini wax with a kit bought from the shop is not as easy as it sounds. But once you have tried it out, you will be able to wax your skin at home at any time you prefer. You can even touch up next to your tan lines on holiday. One of the most important things to keep in mind when you wax at home is to keep your skin clean and dry. So, take a shower before you wax and then dry thoroughly your skin where you are going to wax. You can apply baby powder before you apply wax, this will absorb the moisture and oil from your skin. The powder should be un-perfumed so as to avoid irritation.
Another thing to remember is not to always work against the hair growth. So, when you apply wax on your skin, apply it downwards in the direction of hair growth. Similarly when you put on the wax strip, smooth the strips towards the direction of your hair growth. When you rip away the wax from the skin, you should do it as quickly as possible, and that too in the direction opposite to the hair growth. Hot wax kits are available for waxing. They are great once you have found your waxing groove. But when you are a beginner, then you can try wax strips instead of hot wax. Some of the wax strips you can try are Veet Bikini & Underarm Easy Grip Ready-To-Use Wax Strips.
If you would like to try hot wax you can use Rio Total Body Waxing Hair Removal Kit. It is easy to use and comes with everything you need when waxing. When you use hot wax, make sure that you test the temperature of wax before you apply it on your skin. You can test it by applying a little of it on the back of your arms. If the temperature is right, then you can start applying it on your skin.
If you are new to waxing, it will be better that you go to a professional as it is your first time. Later on you can try it out yourself at home.
What waxing preparation to do?
You need not do any preparation before waxing. The professionals at the salon will take care of it. You need not trim your hair or remove them. All you have to do is to wear some comfortable underwear that you can put back on after waxing, for the complete comfort. The salon will provide you with body wipes and a body fragrance so that you can also freshen up before your waxing session starts.
What is the most popular bikini wax?
Most requested bikini wax in the Hollywood is the four intimate services. This wax is very popular and can remove all hair in the intimate area from the front top to the back. Disposable underwear is provided, so that you can wear it during the waxing session. If you do not want to remove all the hair, then you can choose from other Intimate Waxing Services like Bikini, G-String or Brazilian.
How much does a bikini wax hurt?
It is said that the more you wax, the less will be the pan you experience. The first wax is most painful. But once you have done it, you will the benefits and it becomes much easier with each waxing session. Waxing is a form of semi permanent hair removal and it helps in removing hair from its root. This means that each removal can weaken the hair growth cycle. In addition, using hot wax instead of strip wax makes it coat the hair that are to be removed and not stick to it. So, removing hairs is softer and kinder on the skin and thus less painful.
If you are ‘Going on holiday?’
Many people wax a few days before going on a holiday. But if you are not a regular waxer, this means that hairs can grow back quicker. That is of course not something that you will want when you are in your bikini. So, it is recommended that you opt for at least three waxing services before you go for a holiday. This will make sure that all hairs are removed when you are enjoying your holiday. Depending on the speed of hair growth, you should do it 3 months prior to your holiday.
How often to wax?
When you are a regular waxer, then you can remain hair free for 2 to 3 weeks at an average. Then you need hair of at least ½ cm long for getting ser smooth finish. If the hair is too long, the hair will detach from the roots and another hair may start growing. So, the result will not last long. Your body expert will book your monthly follow up appointments to give you the best results for a longer time.
