Tips To Remember When Getting A Wax Down There For The First Time

Written By:

The first time you get yourself waxed down there, it can leave you with a lot of questions. It is puzzling indeed. A lot of women hesitate in getting it done too. But, with our tips to remember before going in for a bikini wax, your first time wouldn't be as hard as it usually is, we are sure.

There are different types of waxing methods you can go for, when waxing down there. And if it is your first time, and you are a waxing novice, then do not do it yourself.

Get a practiced professional to do it, as it is a very sensitive area, and who knows what kind of damage you'd end up doing if you do it yourself?

You could go for a bikini wax, which cleans up all the hair in the area, except the hair around the labia (also called vaginal lips). You could also try a Brazilian wax that gets rid of all the hair entirely, even the hair on the labia.

It completely depends on your preference, and what you eventually go for. So, here are a few tips to remember when getting your first wax down there. These things will definitely help make the process easier, have a look.


1. Pick The Right Salon:

This is obviously very important. You have to make sure you pick a salon that specializes in waxing. Do not be concerned about how much money you'll be spending because you don't want something untoward to happen to such a delicate area, right? Pre-book an appointment with a salon known for waxing.


2. Do Not DIY:

Do not by any means try to do it yourself. You could end up in burning your skin because of the warmth of the wax or even worse end up in pulling out skin. Doesn't that all sound painful enough for you to not venture into DIY bikini waxing?


3. Trim:

One of the best tips for bikini wax for the first time is to trim your hair with scissors before going in. The hair needs to be ¼th inch in length. Trimming would make it easier and slightly less painful.


4. Time:

Yes, the time of the month you get the wax also matters a lot. Do not get a bikini wax anytime before you get your period. That's when the skin there tends to be more sensitive. This is the most important thing to remember when getting a bikini wax.


5. Take A Shower:

Definitely take a shower before you go for your wax appointment. This would make you feel less self-conscious. And obviously, it'd make you feel a lot more fresher and hygienic.


6. Be Prepared:

It will hurt, probably a lot. Be prepared for the pain. This area is a lot more sensitive than the rest of the body, and there is thicker hair there. So, just remember to be prepared.


7. After Care:

Aloe vera gel can really help soothe the area after the waxing has been done. With this perfect tip for bikini wax for your first time, you could make sure of avoiding other skin issues like redness, boils or rashes.
