beauty tip tuesday: 5 tips to consider before a bikini wax

NO ONE looks forward to a bikini wax and for good reason, it hurts!  Well, if done correctly by a professional aesthetician, it doesn't have to be so bad.    Here are a few tips to ease the pain.

1.) Schedule your appointment about a week AFTER your period, your threshold for pain is higher.

2.) Make sure the salon/spa uses "hard wax".  It actually is more gentle than soft wax.

3.) Exfoliate the night before.  Removing any traces of dead skin helps the wax remove hair more easily.

4.)  Take Advil or some kind of pain reliever about an hour before your appointment.

5.) Remember to breathe and try to relax!  I used to hold my breath and it only made me focus more on the pain.
