My waxing sessions will now begin! I try to take a break from waxing during the winter because well, it's painful, exhausting and not very necessary. I have a wax pot and I wax my own legs, underarms and bikini. I prefer using honey wax, I think hard wax is a bit rough and even though it's faster it's also a lot more painful in my opinion.
I love the convenience of it, I wax every three to four weeks and after a couple sessions my hair grows in less and thinner. No razor burns, cuts, and don't have to pay the ridiculous price for a good razor.
Exfoliating should be a normal routine to avoid in-grown hair.
Couple tips for waxing at home:
-Use baby powder on skin before applying the wax to have minimal wax sticking to skin
-Test the temperature of the wax on the inside of your wrist before applying it to your skin. Especially if the wax is being used on your face.
-Apply the wax in the direction of the hair growth. Pull strip/wax against the direction of the hair growth.
-Use baby oil to clean any wax that is left on the skin and a cooling gel to sooth the skin.
