Scared to try waxing?

Prepare your skin properly.
It’s a basic fact to always prepare your skin before you wax, regardless if it’s the face or the legs, be sure to exfoliate 24 or 48 hours before you decide to have a waxing sesh at home. Otherwise, you may risk yourself with some skin irritation or pesky ingrown hairs. You can use a loofah or a scrub to get rid of your dead skin. In addition, exfoliating your skin helps the wax to grip the hairs tightly.
Wax your skin at the right time.
Because waxing is a process, there’s really no need to rush. You have to give your skin the right amount of time in order to wax properly. Make sure your environment is warm when you wax because you want the follicles to relax before you strip them off. The more relaxed the follicles are, the easier the hair tends to slide out. Also, don’t try to wax if you’re stressed out, anxious or on your menstrual period because it only magnifies the pain.
Choose the right wax.
Let’s face it, not all waxes yield the same result so be wary of the type of wax you’ll be using. Are you going to use hard wax or soft wax for your hair? If you’re unsure, you can check out our post about which wax goes where.
