Take Warm Bath
Always make sure you take a warm bath before getting the waxing done, so as to slightly open your pores. This gives your hair an easy exit point and when the strip is pulled, you feel less pain. But, do not moisturize your body, as the oils will seep through your pores and will prevent hair from sticking to the wax.

Exfoliate

If you want to ward off the dead skin, exfoliation is a good exercise.  The dead skin serves no purpose except clogging up the skin pores. Hence, exfoliate prior getting waxed, so that it opens up the pores and removes the dead skin cells. This will ease the removal of hair from roots giving your skin a smooth look.

Do not think of waxing your body yourself, unless you are quite an expert. Doing it on your own, especially when you don’t know the right technique can cause various skin problems, such as bumps, redness, rashes, itchiness, and much more. Make sure you head to the parlor always and let the experts do their job.

 

Avoid Alcohol or Caffeine before Waxing

Alcohol and caffeine are two harmful things that can make your skin more sensitive and can tighten the skin pores. Unfortunately, both these things add to the pain that you feel during waxing. Make sure you do not take any alcoholshutterstock_129192695 or caffeine before your waxing appointment. Also, keep your skin hydrated by drinking a lot of water.

48 Hours of Restshutterstock_262364948

Avoid the 4 S’s for the first couple of days after wax for optimally smooth skin: Sun, Sauna/Steam Room, Synthetics, and Sex. The reasons behind this fact are:

  • Avoid sun as the top layers of your skin can be removed during the process and can heighten your chances of sunburn.
  • Avoid Sauna or steam room as waxing already heats up the body. Additional heat can damage your skin.
  • Avoid Synthetics and wear looser clothing made up of natural fabrics post waxing so that the skin can breathe easily. It will also help you avoid skin irritations.
  • Avoid Sex for the first 48 hours as medical experts say that this time period is when the body is most prone to external bacteria that can potentially cause an infection.
