Waxing is one of the cheapest and most effective ways to remove hair from your body. Once waxed, the area that has been waxed will remain hair-free for anywhere from two to six weeks. Unfortunately, it can be a painful process, especially for those who have never had it done before. Here are three tips that can help to make waxing in Denver less painful.
Take a Pain Reliever 45 to 60 Minutes Before Your Appointment:
An over-the-counter pain reliever, such as Tylenol or Aspirin, can help reduce some of the pain you may experience when you are having waxing done. In addition to reducing some of the pain you may experience as the strip is pulled, it can also help to keep inflammation and redness away after the job. Try to take the medication 45 to 60 minutes ahead of time so it has time to work its way into your body before you are waxed.
Reduce Your Acidity Levels:
There are many things you may eat or drink in a day that are acidic, such as soda, coffee, oranges and chocolate. The day before your waxing appointment, start cutting out acidic foods. Those with high acidity levels have more sensitive skin than those with lower levels, making waxing more painful. If you find that you just can’t live without your coffee or soda, pop an antacid 15 to 30 minutes before your appointment to reduce your acidity levels.
Do Not Tense Up:
The last thing you can do to make waxing in Denverless painful is to try not to tense up. Instead, breath deeply and slowly and think of a happy place. Tensing up can make the procedure much more painful than it should otherwise be and deep breathing techniques will help you to better cope with the pain.
