How to Prepare Your Skin for a Bikini Wax
While women may shy away from a bikini wax, it is certainly one of the best body hair removal techniques out there. A bikini wax is a great long-term hair removal choice, with effects that can last you up to 2-3 weeks, leaving your skin super smooth. So ladies, we are going to tell you how to prepare your skin for a bikini wax.
1. Check if your hair is long enough
The first thing you need to do to prepare your skin for your bikini wax, is to check if the length of your pubic hair is long enough. If the pubic hair is too short, it will not be removed by waxing, so be sure to let it grow out at least a week before you wax.
2. Clean the area well
Don’t go in for a bikini wax when you are all sweaty after a workout. Be sure to take a warm shower, and use your shower scrub to get rid of any dead skin cells. This will also reduce your chances of in-grown hairs. Do not apply any lotion or cream before the wax.
3. Apply numbing cream if necessary
Some women can’t stand the pain of a bikini wax at all, so if you are one of them, then prepare your skin by applying a numbing cream to the pubic area before you wax. You need to leave the cream for at least 45 minutes before you wax so it's fully absorbed.
4. Care for your skin after the bikini wax
After your bikini wax, you need to avoid using any scrubs. So if you decide to shower, use a gentle shower gel and avoid using your shower scrub. Also avoid immediate tanning after your wax, you need to give your skin a day to heal.
