Believe it or not, a bikini wax can go from so amazing to OMG! when you follow our Wax Experts' advice on getting the most out of everyone's favorite wax service.
Bikini Wax DOs
Do take a deep breath. Think about a basket full of kittens. Pretend you’re on a beach sipping a Mai Tai. The more relaxed you are, the better your waxing experience will be.
Do tell your Wax Specialist about any medications you're taking, like antibiotics, accutane, or topical creams like Retin-a, which might not be compatible with waxing.
COTTON FOR THE WIN
Do wear comfortable cotton underwear to avoid irritation if it’s your first time receiving a bikini wax.
Bikini Wax DONTs
Don't tan the area you plan to wax 24 to 48 hours before your reservation. And since the process of waxing exfoliates the skin, we recommend staying out of the sun for 24 hours after your wax, too.
Don't consume alcohol or significant amounts of caffeine before your wax. Both can cause pores to tighten, which could make for a more uncomfortable experience.
Don't use any numbing creams. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but they don't actually penetrate the skin.
