At first glance, waxing may seem like the most painful beauty treatment imaginable – and in some cases, it can be! But with the right preparation and approach, you can make the entire process much more comfortable and less uncomfortable. Here are a few ways to help you experience pain-free waxing!
- Follow aftercare
If you’re looking to experience a painless wax every time, then following aftercare instructions is key! Aftercare products and practices can help reduce discomfort and keep your skin in great shape post-wax.
Nourish the Area
First, after your waxing session, apply a nourishing oil to the area. This will help soothe any discomfort and reduce redness. Choose an aftercare product that contains anti-inflammatory ingredients such as aloe vera, chamomile, and lavender. These natural ingredients are known for their healing properties and can reduce any inflammation caused by the waxing process.
Our Yoni Oil has a high concentration of grapeseed oil for an even skin tone, tea tree oil for treating irritation and inflammation, and oregano oil for protecting cuts and breaks in the skin. It also contains lavender oil for an anti-inflammatory soothing serum.
Remove Dead Skin
Scrub away dry skin with our body scrub which contains; raw sugar, turmeric powder, lemon powder, organic honey, coconut oil, ex virgin olive oil, vitamin E oil, shea butter, and aloe vera juice.
Avoid Hot Baths and Showers
You should also avoid taking hot showers or baths for at least 24 hours after a wax. Hot water can aggravate your skin and increase any existing irritation. Instead, opt for lukewarm water when washing the waxed area and use a gentle cleanser to avoid further irritation.
- Stick to a wax schedule
Sticking to a wax schedule is also important for maintaining smooth, healthy skin. Regular waxing allows you to remove unwanted hair from the root instead of it growing back shorter and stubbly each time.
Additionally, waxing every 4-6 weeks ensures that there is enough hair growth for the wax to grab onto and be removed easily.
To stay on top of your waxing schedule, ensure you pre-book your appointments, especially during busy periods, so you don’t miss out!
- Eat a low sugar, low dairy diet
Finally, eating a low sugar and low dairy diet can help make waxing more comfortable. Studies have shown that eating a diet rich in these foods can increase inflammation, which can make waxing more painful.
Eating plenty of leafy greens, low- hormone meats and fruits can help keep your skin healthy and hydrated while reducing inflammation before and after a waxing session.
