16 simple things to make your waxing painless

Should good things only come at a cost? Why is it that waxing makes you look so good, but feel so terrible during the process? That’s because you didn’t know what precautions to take. Yes, painless waxing is possible. If only you remember a few things the next time you head for a session. Try and follow them and see how much more painless your waxing can get. 1. Go at the right time If the length of your unwanted hair is too short, it will slip out of the waxing strip’s grip and not get removed. The result will be pain with nothing to show for it.

Go for a good brand, and use it half an hour before waxing. You will wonder when the waxing happened! 6. Take a mild pain killer Find a mild pain reliever that is available over the counter and have this half an hour before waxing in case you don’t want to go for numbing cream. 7. Distract yourself while waxing If at home, keep your favourite movie on. If in the salon, chat with your beautician. This will keep your mind off any pain. After all, everything can be controlled by the mind. 8.
