How To Do A Bikini Wax At Home

How To Do A Bikini Wax At Home at home bikini wax body

Styles of bikini wax treatments are emerging in response to lifestyle and fashion trends.Waxing is probably the best way to remove the unwanted hair from the bikini area. This method gives a clean, smooth surface and long-lasting results . Some women use hair removal creams in the pubic area. If you want to do a modest shaving of your bikini line, you can do it yourself in the shower.   The waxes used for bikini and pubic area are gentler than those used for legs, face and back for example, because the bikini area is probably the most sensitive area of the body and attention must be paid to avoid irritation. If you want to remove pubic hair, indulge in the popular Brazilian wax – just a small patch of hair is left over the clitoris; the hair on your lips, between the legs and even the hair around the anus is removed.

Waxing at home requires a few supplies before you can get started:
  • disposable wooden spatulas or suitable applicators / use small applicators for the eyebrows and face, and a large applicator for the larger areas like legs, back, abdominal, back/
  • a wax / hot or cold/
  • pre-epilation lotion that softens the skin / you can also use a baby oil but don’t apply too much because it won’t allow the wax to peel off/
  • after-wax lotion or oil
  • muslins
  • tweezers
The procedure
  • cleanse the area with an antiseptic cleaner and pat it dry
  • dust the area with talcum powder
  • test the wax to make sure that it isn’t very hot
  • take a small dab of the wax and place a very thin layer on the area
  • apply the wax with the edge of the spatula in the opposite direction of the hair growth, then pass back over in the direction of growth / downward/
  • where the hair is stronger the pull of the wax should always be against hair growth
  • place the muslin strip on
  • pull out the strip
Here are some hygiene rules to follow if you decide to do Brazilian wax:

  • Don’t use products with chemicals in that area
  • Keep the area well moisturized
  • Don’t wear tight clothing around the vagina
  • Try to wear cotton clothing
  • You can prevent ingrown hairs by using an exfoliant scrub and a loofah sponge to clean and brush away dead skin and hairs that promote ingrown hairs.
  • you need at least a quarter of an inch to do any kind of waxing
  • if the hairs are too small you won’t be able to get the hair out and it will be very painful
  • get some painkillers before waxing, they will minimize the pain
  • the more often you get waxed, the less sensitive your skin will be and the thinner your hair will grow back
  • through moisturizing after waxing can help to avoid the problem of ingrown hair, which is when the hair grows back under the skin causing infection
  • regular exfoliating treatments of the skin also will help to prevent ingrown hair
  • the effects of the wax depilation usually last for about 3 to 5 weeks
  • if you use how wax make sure it isn’t too hot otherwise you may damage the skin
  • never go the same area again and again because it may cause bruising
  • pay special attention if you have moles
  • wax at least a day before special event to give your skin enough time to calm down
  • hold your skin taut with your hand and remove the wax in one swift direction
