In the end, you will achieve permanent hair removal, but during the process you will still have to deal with the unwanted hair. This may mean having to go for a wax every now and then for your hair removal. In fact, some women still prefer getting waxes over any of the other hair removal options. Waxes are not always painful. It all depends on your pain threshold and on which area you are waxing. If it is your first time getting a wax, follow these helpful tips to ease the pain:В· Go to a professional: do not get fooled into thinking that you can wax yourself, especially if it is your first time. You can end up doing damage to your skin. Ripping too hard can cause your pores to bleed and if the wax is too hot, it can burn you. Trust in the professionals who know how to give you the best waxing experience possible. They will ensure that it is as pain-free as possible.В· Take pain medication: if you know that you do not have a high pain threshold, take pain medication about 20 minutes before the appointment. This will help to ‘numb’ your body a bit and will decrease the pain. There are also some creams on the market that you can apply before your session in order to ‘numb’ the area.В· Exfoliate: dry skin can be a problem before going for a wax. These dead cells from the dry skin can clog up the pores, making it a far more painful process when removing the hair. Using a course body scrub or exfoliant will help to decrease these dead cells and provide you with smoother looking skin. В· Don’t increase the acidity in your body: if you think drinking a glass of wine will help with the pain, you would be wrong. Wine and caffeine create acidity in the body. This acidity can make your skin that much more sensitive. Despite feeling like you might need a bit of Dutch courage to get through the experience, it is best avoided.These tips can help you to get through the pain of waxing. You can still enjoy getting a smooth body without having to worry about tears rolling down your face.
