Not just puberty hits teenagers, even middle-aged women find it tough to come to terms with waxing. After all, who would endure all that pain? Even though shaving can cause infections, ingrown hairs, double the density, and even double the hairs, it is still painless. No one wants to withstand such torture just to have flawless skin. But concentrate again on the downfalls of shaving.
Read on to know how waxing doesn’t need to be necessarily painful!
Get Hold Of Yourself
While any waxing, especially during Brazilian waxing, right before the aesthetician rips off the wax, hold your skin taut. Stretch it as much as possible. This will expand the pores of the follicles and allow easy exit of the hairs when compared to compressed pores.
Choose a moisturizer, not too heavy, quite light, and has a soothing effect on your skin. We suggest that this better be Aloe Vera-based or even cucumber-based. This will provide a cooling effect to your skin. Put this bottle in the fridge overnight before waxing and apply it as soon as you pull off the wax. The cooling agents will reduce the burning sensation.
Alternatively, gouge out the Aloe Vera gel from the stems and refrigerate it overnight. You can choose cucumbers too. These natural coolants can be applied directly to the waxed skin as soon as you rip the wax off. These will have a soothing effect to battle the irritation caused most naturally.
Sectionalize the parts of your skin to very very tiny bits. The maximum width of each swab can be not more than one inch and the length cannot be more than three inches. Make more such sections and apply wax.
Understand that smearing a large quantity of wax on your body especially if you are a novice will make it very dry and hard to pull, equating to excruciating pain. Also, it will not remove the hair from the follicles so there is a danger of irritable ingrown hairs. You can also get done your waxing treatment in London.
Shaving has its set of horrors. The hair grows faster and even thicker. Cases have been where two hairs have grown out of one pore. This needs to stop once you begin to wax. Waxing ensures that the hair growth is slower and less dense than previous growth. But if you shave again, you will disturb the cycle that your hair is getting used to. The hairs need to be accustomed to being waxed and reduce their regrowth time. You need to allow them to develop their pattern and not shave.
On a note of conclusion, understand that these tips cannot eliminate the pain but can minimize it or even make your senses numb so that you do not register much of it. No pain no gain applies to beauty too. Also, try all of these tricks and get hold of what suits your skin better and keep following it consistently.
