How To Have A Pain Free Bikini Wax!!!



Summer is approaching which means its time to pull out the bikinis and show some skin. This also means the necessity of waxing your bikini area before that stroll on the beach. If you are thinking to yourself “ouch, not me”… After this post you will learn tips for a “pain-free” wax experience. Keep on reading to find out how.


1. NEVER schedule a bikini or Brazilian wax right before or after your period.


2. Refrain from sexual activity 48 hours prior to waxing. This will only make the area more sensitive during your wax.


3. Take pain relief medication such as Tylenol or ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to any wax to decrease the anxiety and pain.


4. Be sure that you or your esthetician trims your pubic hairs prior to waxing. The longer the hair the more it will hurt.


5. Apply numbing cream to the area (external area only) prior to waxing. My favorite is Clean and Easy Numbing Antiseptic.


6. Apply pre epilation spray or cream a few minutes before your wax. This will allow the hair to be easily removed from the root. Try Tend Skin (Also apply tend skin to the area after waxing to prevent irritation, bumps and ingrown hairs).


7. Lightly exfoliate the area up to two days prior to your wax. This goes for facial, bikini, legs or any other area to be wax. This will not only help with pain but also alleviate the growth of ingrown hairs and irritation post waxing.


8. Don’t wear tight clothing for at least 24 hours prior to waxing and be sure to shower and change undergarments after activities like swimming and cardio workouts (Also follow these rules 24 hours post waxing).


9. Decrease your intake of caffeine the day of your wax appointment. Caffeine increases your acid levels causing sensitivity.


10. Lastly breathe and try to relax during your wax. Anxiety and tension only makes your experience less pleasurable.


The next time you go for a wax appointment or even wax at home, keep the above tips in mind. I am sure you will thank me. Remember the more you continue to wax removing hair in that area will be come easier resulting in a decrease in sensitivity and pain.
