Make Your Bikini Wax Less Painful With Our Numbing Lotion

For many of us, Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner. Do you know what that means? That's right: we're gearing up for our pre-summer ritual of a bikini wax. While we all look forward to warm summers on the beach and going swimming in the ocean, we don't really look forward to the bikini wax as much. Here at Tygress Skin Care, our numbing lotion helps make your bikini wax less painful.

Today we're going to look at a few other things you can do to make your bikini wax less painful.

  • Have the right hair length: The ideal length is 1/8 to 1/4 inches and this is very important! This will help the wax bind properly to the base of the hair for the most efficient (fastest and lest painful) removal. 
  • Exfoliate the area a day or two prior to your wax treatment. This should ideally be done when you trip up the hair for your bikini wax. However, it's important that you don't exfoliate too much because you do want to leave a bit of dead skin to protect the sensitive living skin cells from being waxed away. Exfoliation will also help decrease your risk of getting ingrown hairs!
  • Does numbing cream really work? Yes! Applying a numbing lotion to the bikini area about 30 to 60 minutes before your appointment will really help. Just make sure that you wash the numbing lotion off before the treatment so that it doesn't interfere with the binding of the wax.
