How to limit the pain of waxing

Due to the nature of the treatment, there is some pain involved in the waxing process, however, there are steps you can take to limit this pain:

Never wax during your period

This is the time of the month when your pain threshold is lower than normal which can heighten discomfort during waxing.

Loose-fitting clothes

Wear clean, loose-fitting clothes made from breathable material such as cotton after waxing to prevent your clothing irritating your freshly waxed skin.

Opposite direction

Pull the wax strip in the opposite direction to hair growth as it will minimise the pain when you pull the wax strip off.

Exfoliate

Scrubbing off dead skin cells the night before waxing exfoliates the hair follicles and can reduce pain when waxing.

Let it grow

Let the hair grow slightly as waxing small prickly hairs can make waxing painful.

Do not shave

Shaving disturbs the hair growth and makes waxing painful.
