6Cold compress for extra sensitive skin

7Stop shaving when started waxing
Shaving can make hair grow back more dense. Once you have started waxing then you have to be committed to it. When the hair starts growing back it won’t grow back that thick, which means further waxing can be less painful. Maybe sometimes the first time of waxing won’t be perfect but, first wax can take off hairs long enough at that point in time during a particular growing cycle and by the time of your fourth wax without shaving all the hair will be growing in the same cycle and pattern, which can also mean you might have a super smooth skin you want.
8Have a realistic expectation
Unless you visit the salon, it is sometimes becomes difficult to get a perfect full leg or a Brazilian wax. However, at-home strips can be good for face and smaller areas like lip and chin. You can heat the strips with a blow dryer to get an ideal temperature.
9Protect yourself for twenty four hours
Sometimes body lotion that consists of alpha hydroxy acids that can tingle and burn, also a tanning bed or direct sun exposure can feel nothing but more irritation. Freshly waxed skin is more likely to burn faster. So try to be extra careful for twenty four hours after waxing.
10Never wax during that time of the month
