5 Things Your Bikini Waxer Won't Tell You

    The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents 5 Things Your Bikini Waxer Won't Tell You.

    She may tell you "Don't worry," but that would be a hell of a lot more convincing if she shared all this need-to-know info too. Make your next wax-on, wax-off session less painful with these amazing tips. By Christie Griffin

    1. Pop a couple Aspirin 45 minutes before the appointment.
    This is a brilliant ouch!-reducing strategy because not only do over-the-counter painkillers like Aspirin and Ibuprofen help reduce the feeling of pain, but they have anti-inflammatory components too.

    2. Don't schedule your wax right before your period.
    Your skin is more sensitive during this time of your cycle, so try to get the wax done at least three days before you're supposed to start menstruating. And don't even think about making an appointment during your period — not only is that icky for the technician, but a lot of places have a "no period policy."

    3. Avoid working out or wearing tight clothing right away.
    Nothing kills the buzz of a bare (or barer) hoo-ha like a bunch of pimples on your privates. That's what can happen if you work out within 48 hours after a waxing session because your "born again" (i.e., hairless) skin is extra sensitive to sweat, bacteria, and chafing from your shorts or pants. Plus: Wearing tight clothing like leggings or jeggings can increase the chances of ingrown hairs because they can reroute hair back down and under the skin instead of growing out. Some dermatologists have even noted seeing an increase in ingrowns since the legging trend became so popular.

    4. Your "aim" might be off afterward, so hover carefully.
    We're not suggesting you actually sit on a mysterious toilet seat...but to avoid wet thighs or pants, be extra low and careful while squatting. Because your hair down there used to help control things, it's common for your stream to be a little wacky after your wax.

    5. Schedule your appointment between 3 and 5 p.m.
    Your pain threshold is the highest at this point in the day. The stuff that would make you yelp at 10 a.m. will only make you wince a little now.
