6 mistakes to avoid during waxing at home


All the women have to go through a time when they can’t go to a salon and have to do waxing at home on their own. Doing waxing on your own is not easy because obviously, you are not professional and mistakes can happen. So, if you are planning to wax your arms and legs on your own at your place,

Here is a list of mistakes you need to avoid during waxing for salon-like results:

  1. Most of the times, we don’t exfoliate our skin before waxing. So, 24 hours before waxing, don’t forget to exfoliate your skin to remove the hair easily. Also, while we are doing waxing on our own at our place, we don’t care about the texture of the skin before waxing. It is necessary to keep the skin dry before waxing because moisture on our skin does not allow hair to be removed easily.
  1. If you are planning to wax at home, don’t forget to look out for the length of hair. Too much small hair can’t be pulled off during waxing leaving you unsatisfied. So, it is better to do waxing when the length is long.
  1. It is not an issue while you are being waxed by a professional, but it is an issue if you are doing it on your own. Before applying the wax, make sure it is not overheated because it can burn your skin. The wax needs to be of the temperature you can tolerate. At the time of bikini waxing, you can use the wax a bit cool if your growth is hard down there. A little bit of cool wax allows the hair in the bikini area to come out a bit easier.
  1. When we are doing waxing at our place, we don’t care about the direction of hair growth and pull the strips in whichever direction and this isn’t right. You need to apply the wax in the direction of the hair and pull the strip against the direction of hair growth. Pulling the strip in whichever direction can affect your next growth. So, keep this in mind forever.
  1. Fearing of pain most us pull the strips a bit slowly, but this is not right when we are waxing. The strips are needed to be pulled in one go and quickly because going slow is not going to remove all the hair.
  1. Most of the ladies make a mistake while choosing the type of wax for themselves. While you are doing it on your own don’t go for hard wax because you won’t be able to deal with it. So, choose the soft one for your convenience.

It is agreed that you are not a professional, but in the age of the internet, you can be a pro by going through different videos and blogs like this one on waxing tips at home. These are some of the mistakes you need to avoid while waxing on your own and become a professional for yourself.
