We all have a love-hate relationship with bikini wax. We love them due to the fact that they really leave us neat and clean down at the bottom. We hate them because they are really painful, and no matter, you’re doing it yourself or asking a pro to do it, things can go awfuly wrong.
Wrong temperature of wax
Wax is all about temperature. It should be at a right temperature in order to spread evenly in a thin layer. Further, it also should be at the right temperature when you are removing. If it is not, you probably would have to deal with dried wax on your bikini line. Yak!
Waxing without exfoliating
Exfoliating might sound like a bit boring task, but it is something you should count upon especially when you are looking to have a bikini wax. It is highly recommended to exfoliate your bikini wax daily using scrubs at least a week before. Avoiding this might give you a few red bumps here and there on your bikini line. That’s the least you would want, right?
Waxing without trimming your hair
You need to make sure that your hairs are just the right length while you are waxing your bikini area. If they are too long, you will face difficulties in ripping them out properly. If they are too short, you won’t be able to pull them off properly. It is an essential requirement, and even if you are not going to wax your bikini area yourself, you should take care of this and ask your professional that you would need the trim down there.
Not taking painkillers
This goes without saying, biking waxing is going to be a painful procedure. And if you are the one who is ultra-sensitive it is highly recommended to go for an Aspirin some 45 minutes before your waxing procedure. It would not only reduce the pain but would also prevent swelling due to the anti-inflammatory properties that it posses.

You need to be very sure about the direction in which you are trying to rip off the hair. the wrong direction would not rip off any hair, but can also result in smelling, bruising and in some cases, your skin can also be ripped off.
