According to experts (us included!), waiting around for new hair to grow might lead for it to deeply root into your skin. And this usually means a more painful waxing experience. So if you're looking to wax with lesser pain, you will have to wax as often as possible. You can already wax within two to three weeks of hair growth.
Did you know that when your skin is exposed to sunlight, it gets more sensitive? This is why dermatologists highly recommend that you don't expose your skin too much under the sun... and this is even more important if you're planning to have a waxing session in the next 24 hours or so. It’s a big no-no when waxing as skin gets too sensitive leading to a painful waxing experience. This goes for people who have had tanning sessions as well as the effects are quite similar.
For super sensitive skin areas like your underarms or your Brazilian part, you may want to numb your skin first before waxing. You can opt for a numbing cream and then take a pain reliever 30 minutes prior to your waxing session. Alternatively, you can use a cold compress for numbing.
As much as possible, you will have to avoid products that contains anything from AHA's, BHA's and retinols if you're planning to have a waxing sesh two or three weeks later. These skin products that have acids ultimately remove the outer layer of your skin which results to waxing discomfort and should just be avoided all round!
