We are well aware of what a bikini/Brazilian wax entails. Warmed wax, special cloths and clenched fists. It IS uncomfortable but the hair generally takes 3-4 weeks to grow back. Is it worth it? As a woman, vanity and pain stroll together hand in hand often.
TIP: Manage the pain with a two painkillers before your appointment. If it still hurts, ask the technician to apply strips to smaller areas. The waxer may resort to tweezers for remaining strays.
- inhale before each strip is removed.
- soothe bikini irritation for the first 48 hours with hydrocortisone cream or aloe.
- exfoliate the area daily to remove dead skin.
- try COMPLETELY BARE BIKINI BUMP BLASTER/$32, TENDSKIN/$15-$45 or BLISS INGROWN HAIR ELIMINATING PEELING PADS/2 sets for $68 to maintain smooth skin.
