So, you’ve booked your first bikini wax and you’re feeling a bit apprehensive? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there before and believe us when we say, it’s not as bad as it seems! Yes, we won’t lie, it does hurt but if you’re tired of fussing with razors, gels, creams and all the other depilatory gadgets available today, a professional bikini wax is worth every twinge of pain.
As opposed to shaving, which chops hair off at the skin line and whose effects last only a day or two, waxing removes hair from the root, which means the smooth results of a professional wax can last up to a month. Also, waxing does not just remove the hair at the root but it also exfoliates the skin, providing for ultra smooth and silky skin. There’s no longer a need to worry about unsightly stubble or nicks from razors which can often lead to marks or scars.
Most women who wax regularly will tell you that the short-lived pain is definitely worth it for a fuss-free, low-maintenance bikini line.
