WAXING: WHAT TO EXPECT AND HOW TO ADJUST?
Pain is one of the main fears. Will it hurt? Can you bear it? Where is it most painful? These and similar questions are often asked by girls who are preparing to try the waxing procedure for the first time.
They receive conflicting answers. And there is nothing strange here. The fact is that the pain threshold is a very individual thing. Someone has it low, and, accordingly, the pain is felt more strongly. Some lucky girls are tall, and therefore it is easier for them.

After analyzing all the points, we came to the following conclusion: there is no need to try on someone else’s experience because everything is individual. Undoubtedly the most painful depilation of the deep bikini area. However, the use of modern methods of pain relief makes it possible to reduce discomfort. And the most important thing is to go for the procedure only with an experienced master. He will tell you how to prepare for waxing, determine the level of sensitivity, and be able to make the waxing as comfortable, effective, and easy as possible.
The psychological mood is no less important. Try not to think about the procedure itself, but about what will happen after it. Focus on the pleasant: the opportunity to forget for a long time about shaving hair, smooth skin, an open swimsuit, etc. According to psychologists, it is this kind of internal self-attitude that works as the best preparation for waxing, allowing you to deceive fear and easily go through the not-so-pleasant procedure.
PREPARATION FOR WAXING: PRACTICAL SIDE AND PLANNING
You will have to grow hair to the optimal length, which is 4-6 mm. If they are shorter, it will not be possible to achieve a good grip with the wax, and, as a result, the effectiveness of the procedure will decrease. But you should not exceed the range indicated above, because long and thick hairs are more painful to remove.
Planning the procedure and how to prepare for waxing is especially important when it comes to bikini bottoms. Experts advise pushing back from the cycle and going for waxing in the first half of it after the end of the “critical days” when the sensitivity is lower and the pain threshold is higher. According to many women, this rule works well.
On the day ooffuture depilation, it is better to postpone important matters, and meetings. The fact is that immediately after the procedure, increased feelings of discomfort are possible (the next day they usually almost disappear). Pain can ruin your mood, and you won’t be in the best shape. Therefore, it is worth allowing yourself to relax and rest during the day. This especially applies to those who do waxing for the first time after a long shave. In the future, the quality of hairs will change, their removal will be easier, and preparation for wax epilation will not harm the plans.
It is necessary to inform the master about the presence or absence of allergic reactions, diseases, and medical drugs when making an appointment. This will avoid any surprises.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR WAXING: RECOMMENDATIONS AND PROHIBITIONS
What can be done at home to make the waxing procedure easier and less uncomfortable? How should the skin be prepared for waxing? A few days before the expected “X hour,” preferably three or four, experts recommend scrubbing.
A delicate scrub that does not injure the epidermis is suitable for this. This procedure will allow the hairs to be released as much as possible by removing the keratinized epithelium. Adhesion to the wax will be optimal, and performance will increase significantly. However, if there are less than three days left before waxing, scrubbing is prohibited, as the skin will not have time to recover.
MEANS FOR PREPARATION FOR WAX DEPILATION AND CARE AFTER
- Body scrub from 89
- Depilation gel from 105
- Means after depilation from 130
And now about prohibitions. Therefore, before waxing, you cannot:
- visit the sauna and gym the day before the procedure and immediately after it, as this can cause active sweating and, as a result, provoke inflammation and irritation of the skin;
- use cosmetics containing oils the day before. Oil particles create a film that worsens the adhesion of the wax to the hairs.
- use new cosmetics and drugs in order not to cause allergies and other undesirable reactions before depilation;
- sunbathing in the open sun or a solarium, as this can damage the skin.
And a few more useful points. Immediately before the procedure, it is recommended to lie down in a warm (not hot!) bath. It helps to relax and tune in to the positive. Preparation before waxing includes a skin examination. It is necessary to make sure that its integrity is not violated; there are no rashes, wounds, or scratches.
