When it comes to getting rid of unwanted hair, bikini area is the toughest to tackle. Laser hair removal is an effective and permanent solution for this. As far as temporary methods are concerned, waxing is the most popular option, but it is also the most painful one. Here are a few dos and don’ts that can make bikini waxing less painful.
Take a Painkiller: Taking a painkiller about 45 minutes before the procedure is the best way to reduce the ouch-factor. Most painkillers also have an anti-inflammatory component, which is an added plus.
Schedule you appointment at the right time: Skin is more sensitive during menstruation. So it is best to fix the appointment at least 3- 4 days before period. 3 – 5p.m. is the most favorable time for bikini waxing, as pain threshold is believed to be at its highest in this duration.
Avoid tight clothes and working out immediately after the procedure: After waxing, the skin is extra sensitive. Tight jeggings, leggings or working out can increase the chances of ingrown hair and pimples.
If you dread bikini waxing, laser hair removal is a permanent and less painful alternative.
