Women often get troubled with embarrassing and unwanted hairs on the body. Most of us go to the parlour to get rid of unwanted hairs. But you can also do it at home, by waxing your skin. DIY waxing can be very convenient. You have to try it to believe it. If you are waxing for the first time and a bit anxious about waxing yourself, read the points given below. This will help in increasing your confidence and wax your skin in a better way.
Why Home Waxing Is Good?
Whenever you want, you can do:
Are you going for a date or for an important outing in the night? You need not worry if you have hairs on your legs and arms. You will not be stopped from wearing that hot dress you have always wished to wear. Instead of going to your nearest beauty parlour and begging for a last minute appointment, you can do waxing at home with some ready to use wax strips. This saves your time and money as well.
It’s not messy:
One of the best things about cold wax strips is that it is fuss-free and you need not take extra stress of heating the wax or spreading it on the skin with a knife. This means that it is very less messy. With these ready-made strips all you have to do is to place this strip as close to your skin as possible instead of pulling it outwards.
Doing waxing at home is less embarrassing than doing at the salon, especially for those who really shy away at the thought of having to lie back in their underwear while the parlour woman applies wax on you. Even bikini waxing can cause you embarrassment when done at the salon. Whereas, when you do the waxing at home yourself, you can avoid this feeling of embarrassment, which you have been experiencing earlier when you visited the parlour.
Get at Affordable Cost:
As you all know, salons are not at all cheap. You will have to spend about Rs. 400 to Rs. 2000 when you go to the salon for a waxing session. On the other hand, DIY waxing with Veet Ready to Use waxing strips are much cheaper compared to salon waxing. You will be able to save a lot of money by trying waxing at home. You need not have to worry about choosing the right wax that suits your skin. This is because Veet’s cold wax strips are available in three variants – fit for the dry skin, normal skin and sensitive skin.
You can stop and breathe:
As the beautician rips at your skin to remove hairs, you feel it and yelp in pain. But when you do waxing at home, instead of suffering the pain and yelping as a result of it, you can stop for a second and take a deep breath. This can distract your mind from the pain and keep you calm, thereby causing less pain.
You will be extra careful:
Home waxing is better in a way that you take extra care when you do it yourself. It is your skin you are waxing. So, you are bound to be extra careful. You will be more gentle and soothing than someone else who waxes for you. Moreover, you will take time and check properly whether you have left any patches of hair on the skin waxed. You are not in a hurry when at home. You can take your own time and do everything properly.
Good personal hygiene is maintained:
When you are waxing in the salon, you may be more conscious of the hygiene there. You may start thinking how many people that wax knife might have touched or if the gown given to you in the salon is washed properly or is it new, and so on. Then whether towels they use are clean. You become doubtful about that also. But when you do waxing at home, you need not worry about these things. You can use your own towels and gown. This can make you feel relaxed and peaceful.
No need to wait for ‘full hair growth’:
You are planning to go out in the evening and want to wear that cute skirt. But the in-between wax phase has not ended. This can put you in a dilemma. Then home waxing is the best remedy. Ready to use waxing strips can make it easier for you. These strips have the ability to remove hairs as short as 1.5 mm. This means that you can wax anytime you want and that too easily and effectively.
A few home waxing tips:
Before you wax your skin, clean your skin well and pat dry. This way the waxing process is made more effective.
Waxing twice isn’t good:
If you wax an area more than twice, it can cause redness and irritation. If you have hair that is stubborn on your skin, you can wait till your next waxing session or take them out with tweezers.
Waxing and shaving immediately:
you should do either waxing or shaving. Do not do both. If you do waxing once and then shaving the next time, and so on, this can lead to ingrowths. So stick to one form of hair removal process only.
Wax Aftercare treatment:
After you wax, you have to remove all the wax that may be left behind on your skin using wipes. You can also use baby oil and then rinse with water.
