If it’s your first time thinking about waxing, there are a few things to know.
It does not hurt as bad as you think - When we think of men’s waxing, we often envision that scene in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” The scene where Steve Carrell’s character screams in pain as he waxes his chest hair. Thankfully, that was just a movie. While some pain is associated with waxing, it’s probably not as bad as you’re imagining.
Prepare beforehand - First-time waxers should start small. We don’t recommend going in for full-body hair removal on your first visit. Try a small area first to get yourself comfortable with waxing. It also never hurts to take an Ibuprofen before your visit to alleviate some of the pain.
The first 24 hours after your wax are crucial - It goes without saying that your skin is sensitive immediately following a waxing. Do not work out within this period. Sweating irritates the skin and will most likely cause a breakout. Also, avoid UV exposure as your skin is more likely to burn.Related Reading:
