Here are some pro tips for waxing! Follow this method and your skin will be smooth and gorgeous and the least sore! Waxing does hurt a bit but you get used to it and it'll last you around 3-4 weeks so its worth it Huns and it works on short hairs!
The wax I'm using Is the warm wax kit from boots. It's around €10 and available everywhere. You can also use a different brand if you prefer :)
What you need:
This is the worst part! Hold your skin taut with one hand and pull the strip back on itself in a quick and single motion! If there is a bit of wax remaining rub the strip back on and pull it off again. The strips are reusable. Hold your skin if its sore after waxing. The pain should disappear in a few seconds tho ! Be brave :)
Now you're finished! This wax is great because it washes off so you can wash off any residue with water! Try not to irritate your legs now or apply any strong creams/tan for 24 hours to let your skin calm down :)
To condition your skin after waxing, try using a light aloe Vera gel or gel for sensitive skin! This should help loads :)
Hope you enjoyed reading! Did you try at home waxing yet?
Step1: prepare the wax!
Heat the wax up- this can be done in the microwave or in hot water. Make sure it's not too hot because you'll burn yourself! On the boots kit, a spatula is included with a temperature gauge which Is handy! If the X is visible the wax is too hot and you should wait for it to cool down! The consistency should be like warm honey!
Step2: prepare your legs!
Dust your legs with baby powder as this helps reduce pain and your wax to grip the hair better!
Step3: apply the wax!
Use your spatula and apply the wax in a smooth motion on your leg. Try not to use too much! Spread it lightly & evenly.
Step4: apply the wax strip!
Take your wax strip and cut it with scissors if you need to. Press it on the wax and gently smooth it down so its stuck and feels firm!
