Who doesn’t want to keep her skin silky-smooth and hair-free round the year? And among all the hair-removal techniques, most women seem to have a clear preference for waxing, because it gives a smooth and long lasting finish.
If you have never tried waxing before, then here are some tips for you to get started.
#1: Choose the right type of wax to meet your requirements
Generally, there are two types of wax available in the market: hard wax and soft wax. Soft wax is generally done with muslin strips or paper, while hard wax is removed without strips. Hard wax is more often used to remove hair in the bikini lines , underarm, and facial areas. Soft wax is usually used on your legs and arms .
#2: Get it done by a pro
You might want to try waxing at home to save some money. However, if you are doing it for the first time, get it done by a professional. Watch him/her at work, take notes, and listen to his/her suggestions and recommendations.
#3: Research properly
When you start waxing at home, take care that you do thorough research on the ingredients of the waxing products you have bought. Also, do a small patch test to check if you are sensitive to any of the ingredients. And before you start waxing, read and follow the instructions. You might end up hurting yourself otherwise.
#4: After waxing tips
After waxing, apply baby oil to remove the extra wax. You can apply some baby powder if your skin feels irritated. Again, some professionals advise not to wet the waxed area immediately after waxing as it can lead to infections.
#5: Stock up on the Ingredients
Waxing regularly calls for stocking up on all the ingredients needed for a waxing session.
#6: Keep It Clean
Take care that everything you use for waxing is clean and meets the required hygiene standards.
Now that you have all the essential ‘get started’ waxing tips up your sleeve, you can start following them to ensure a smooth waxing session.
