Body wax is a topic about which many people are misinformed. We will discuss how to wax at home with professional results in this article, as well as where to purchase wax that is made to be more comfortable and cause less pain to your skin.
You’ve probably heard from one of your friends about the wonderful results they’ve had using wax at home or in a spa. They must also have mentioned how uncomfortable it is, I’m sure. Most people are unaware that 50% good waxing technique and 50% good wax are the best solutions when they are looking for a body waxing solution. There are different products for different types of skin, and we have a ground-breaking product that has been shown to be 70% less painful. The majority of available waxing techniques stick to both the skin and the hair, but our product is designed to stick to the hair only.
So let’s get started on learning how to wax at home with professional results and less discomfort.
The area that needs to be waxed should first be cleaned. I advise using any pre-waxing products to get rid of oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. Avoid using products that contain oil because they will make it difficult for the wax to adhere to your skin.
Assuming you already have the wax and are prepared to go, let’s get started with how to melt it without burning your skin and how to apply.
How to melt your wax:
The majority of waxes are made to melt at high temperatures, which makes them extremely hot and dangerous if safety measures are not taken before application. I personally advise employing a wax warmer or comparable product. However, if money is tight, microwave the wax for 20 seconds at a time in a microwave-safe container. Once the wax has melted completely, continue with this step. For the sake of preventing skin burns, keep an eye on the wax’s temperature.
The skin has been cleaned, and the wax is now ready for application. To apply the wax, you will need a spatula or another flat object. Nothing fancy is required. To see what’s available, drop by your neighborhood dollar store or craft store. Even a wooden Popsicle stick will do!
Keep in mind that it’s crucial to keep an eye on the wax’s temperature to prevent skin burn and improve adhesion.
Apply the wax to the desired area in layers no thicker than 3 to 4 mm with the spatula or other tool of your choice. The process of cooling and achieving the ideal consistency for removal will take longer if you apply too much. It’s time to remove the wax that has been applied to a specific area of your body. Make sure you don’t wait too long after checking the wax’s consistency. When wax gets too cold, it becomes more difficult to remove, hurts more, and you might have to start over by reapplying.
Assuming you successfully completed all of the aforementioned steps, it is time to remove the wax. And let me tell you, a ton of people are clueless about how to take off the wax they have used. Because hairs are left behind, some people even go through the process again. Holding down the skin below the area you are about to pull would be another suggestion. You will have more leverage and experience LESS pain as a result of doing this when removing the wax.
Start by pulling a small tab at the very end of the waxed area and pulling it away from the direction of hair growth. This easy little trick, when used correctly, can make a significant difference if you are starting with a large area. I would recommend doing so.
