1 to 2 days before your appointment exfoliate your body to make your skin both soft and to avoid in-grown hairs.
The longer the hair the more painful it is to wax. Trim your hair so that it's between 1.5 and .5 cm, to save yourself from unnecessary pain.
Before you go in for your appointment shower, this opens up your pores. This helps your hairs come out a lot less painfully.
- Pain Relief
If you know you have a very low pain tolerance, take an OTC painkiller at least 30-40 minutes before your appointment.
- Wear Loose Clothing
By wearing loose clothes to your appointment you will help avoid friction to the area afterwards.
What to avoid for the next few days:
- Tight clothing
- Friction and excessive perspiration
- Hot bath/shower and saunas
- Spray tans/body lotion/perfume/deodorant on waxed area
