Dip a cotton pad in mineral oil, massage oil, or olive oil. Warmer oil works better than cold oil. Hold the soaked pad on the wax residue until it’s saturated — about two minutes. Wipe off the wax residue with a clean cotton pad.
Hair removal strips aren’t required
How to reduce the pain after a bikini wax?
“Once you start waxing, do it regularly (removing shaving from your beauty regimen) and your hair will grow much thinner—making for far less painful waxes thereafter,” says Romanenko. Moisturizing after waxing will help to keep your skin hydrated, which help with any discomfort.
How can you make a bikini wax less painful?
– __Skip your morning latte (__or anything else that makes you puffy). – Hydrate with diaper cream. Yep. That’s straight from my favorite waxer ‘s mouth, BTW. – Get on the right cycle. Plan your bikini waxes for right after your period ends (or as close to as possible), since your pain threshold is higher just after that
