Your Guide When Going For the Bikini Wax At Home
When it’s already summer but you’re still contemplating on whether a bikini wax is what you need to enjoy the blazing heat the season has to offer. Apart from the pain factor, there are a lot of reasons why we don’t go for a bikini wax just yet — it’s just too much to handle. But when you’ve already braved the Brazilian, you can most definitely inch up to a bikini waxing session! Ifyou’ve run out of time to head to the spa or missed a booking sesh, don’t worry! An at-home bikini wax session is the answer. Below, we highlight the benefits, the different types of bikini waxes, and of course, the how-tos. Get ready to note down some of these, or bookmark while you’re at it!
When getting yourself a bikini wax, you’re most definitely curious as to the benefits it can give you. Apart from the usual smooth and silky results, a bikini wax can also yield you a healthier skin. Waxing itself is a physical exfoliation that removes dead skin cells, which means giving you a skincare routine that’s both healthy and clean. Curious if your hair will grow back to normal? Well, apparently, it won’t. But when it does, it will grow back with a finer, sparser and softer hair.
And with consistency, there’s going to be minimal irritation with longer-lasting results. Since hair is being removed by the roots, it will take longer for the shafts to grow back. A definite win-win!
Bikini Wax Types
To get you ahead of the waxing game, here are the different types of bikini waxes you might want to try out soon:
Bikini Line – A bikini line is waxing the hairs on your panty line to prevent it from slightly or unintentionally “peeking out”. It’s basically tidying up the sides of your private parts down there.
Bikini Full – In a bikini full, you can take off as much or as little hair as you please from the front part. You can leave a shape such as a triangle, square or nothing at all – do as you please.
Bikini Brazilian – This bikin wax type goes from the front all the way to the back with an added butt strip – a clean look for your private parts. You can choose to leave a triangle, square or any shape you want at the front.
Time to apply!
Breathe, self-medicate, do what you need to do, it’s time.
Work in sections! We suggest to start with the inner thighs and work in, and towards the back (This is when the makeup mirror on the floor starts to come in handy).
1. Apply a generous lather of Mello Hard Wax. If you can still see the hair through the wax, it’s too thin! Each strip should be about an inch wide and up to three inches long… Remember to apply in the direction of the hairs growth.
2. Swiftly peel the now hardened strip off in the opposite direction of the hair growth – do your best to hold the skin beneath the section taut and peel closest to the skin as possible rather than away to lessen the pain and achieve the best result
Trick your pain sensors by holding the skin as taut as possible. “The tighter and smoother the skin is, the easier it’ll be to remove the hair. It’ll also be less painful because the pressure of pulling the skin tricks your pain sensors in that area.”
3. Repeat step 1 & 2 until you achieve the smoothness you are after.
