Usually attached to the wax cloth and spatula with temperature indicator, and waxing strips in the kit are wet wipes to complete the procedure.
Not to bring into the pores of the skin bacteria, particles of wax, hair and other completely unnecessary under the skin objects, complete hair removal should be cleaned with an antiseptic solution.
- Prevent irritation
Before waxing you need to take a warm bath to open the pores, and after that it will be useful to douche, that is the closure of pores. Remember that warm water opens your pores and cold compression. By the way, this is used for getting rid of blackheads and pores.

The types of waxing
- Hot wax
As the wax is applied on the skin, pleasantly warm, the pain from the procedure decreases. It is used in depilation of the bikini area.
After hair removal with hot wax is good to soothe the skin ice cubes, but if you pre-froze in the forms of decoctions of herbs or green tea, it will bring additional benefits to the skin.
The most important thing in hair removal with hot wax at home – to monitor the temperature of the wax manually or by using the indicator on the spatula for the application of the composition. Even if the surface temperature of the wax you are satisfied with, perhaps inside it is even hotter.
- Warm wax
This procedure occupies an intermediate position between hot and cold wax. The risk of injuries and burns, reduced to almost zero, but the efficiency may decrease in comparison with the hotter counterpart.
- Cold wax
Hair removal wax strips at home sometimes referred to as cold. This is the least complicated option of hair removal, because you don’t even need to heat and use a thermostat. On the other hand, jars of wax may be enough for you whole body, while the wax strips barely on his feet. It is a question of the cost of the procedure.

Waxing or sugaring: which is better?
The quality of the procedure objectively can be assessed by several parameters: safety, degree of pain, the effectiveness of hair removal, the effect on the skin.
Go over each separately.
It is considered that sugaring does not cause allergies due to its composition, which includes water, glucose, lemon juice, fructose. You can pre-evaluate what people allergic to honey more than citrus. But statistics in this case you are unlikely to help if you are among the lucky ones who break out in a rash from the extra orange.
Second, the composition of the mixture shugaring can add essential oils, which act on each body individually.
Third, the fact that sugaring is less risk of skin burns is confirmed only in salons. Home as sugar and honey can easily overheat negligently.
The pain from epilation not so much determined by its method as by the correctness of the procedure and individual characteristics. Even during the menstrual phase affects the pain from the procedure: in some days even waxing, deep bikini jokingly tolerated, and in some moments even to pluck eyebrows without crying hard.
Consequently, neither wax nor sugar can’t objectively be compared on all parameters. Better to try both and make conclusions for themselves.
As you know, the intimate zone is the most painful for hair removal. It requires considerable endurance and patience.
Hair removal bikini wax at home and in the salon has a number of contraindications:
- Open injuries of the skin;
- The presence of moles;
- Diseases related to poor blood clotting;
It is worth noting that the use of wax for hair removal bikini area has significant advantages:
- With each treatment the hair becomes less hard and frequent;
- Over time, pain is produced by «immunity», and move once the procedure is becoming easier;
- Unlike hair removal by irradiation and currents, waxing at home does not affect deeper layers of the skin.
What to choose – the good old razor every day or once in two months to use the wax, you decide. Remember that beauty though and requires sacrifice, but their size only define you.
