Tips for a Painless Bikini Wax

Summer is upon us and you know what that means: bikini season is approaching! We have some major key tips for you so that your bikini wax is as painless as possible.

  • Before your appointment, be sure to exfoliate your bikini area 24 hours in advance and remember to not shave! Shaving will cause irritation and your hair needs to be long enough for the waxing to be successful. It’s often recommended to be at least ¼” to be waxed effectively.
  • Take ibuprofen 30 minutes before your wax. This helps ease any discomfort and mild pain that may ensue.
  • Being on your cycle may also increase your pain level during the wax due to inflammation, hormone release, and sensitivity of your skin that is higher during your Aunt Flo's monthly visit. In this case, you can schedule your bikini wax at a separate time to avoid heightened tenderness and sensitivity.
  • Last but not least, wear loose underwear or bottoms when you come to get your bikini wax so that the tightness of your clothes do not irritate your freshly waxed skin.

Bikini waxing may not be enjoyable, but we definitely want you feeling comfortable and secure. I hope these tips help you feel confident and ready for your painless bikini wax with us here at Bella Trio!
