Waxing Hair removal is one of the most affordable, inexpensive and effective ways to remove excess hair. However, doing the procedure at home can be confronted with the fact that the wax eliminates hairs with insufficient quality and the epilation itself is very painful.
If waxing is too painful for you, then do not strive to process the entire area at once. Split the procedure for several days, gradually epilating section by section. So, your skin will get used to the sensations, and it will be easier to tolerate the process.
Epilation can be painful due to improper technique. For example, if you are too fast or, on the contrary, too slowly tear off the wax. In the first case, it always hurts, because the slower you tear off the wax, the more the skin stretches and the more painful it becomes. But you can not tear off too sharply, as this can cause a hematoma under the skin.
Ideally, the movement should be smooth, but fast enough. It is better to entrust the first procedure to the specialist to understand the speed with which you need to tear off the strip. If you do waxing hair removal at home, then practice in a small area of the body.
Different types of wax are available for waxing, and in many respects, the result would depend on its quality. So, it can be a classic wax of varying degrees of hardness, and it can be gel or granular.
Gel wax has a different texture: it lies on the skin of the body with a thin transparent film, does not stick to the surface so much, but at the same time captures hair well. Besides, the gel wax is more economical. Usually, that type of wax is in cartridges.
Granulated wax is a type of hot wax that has a granule formula. This sort of hair removal also applies wax to the skin in the form of a film. It helps to cope with long as well as with short hair. It can be applied both on growth and against the growth of hair.
For “deep” epilation of the bikini zone, fruit waxes are available. These kind waxes contain fructose. It captures and removes hair as well as have a peeling effect.
Besides, it is better to use wax with a roller applicator than wax strips to remove excess hair on the face. It is more convenient for local use, as it is applied with a thin layer only on those areas where it is needed.
