Waxing is considered to be the
best method of hair removal for
most women. It gives you super
soft skin and the results are long
lasting. It exfoliates our skin and
removes any tan or
discoloration. Waxing also uses
safe natural ingredients which
are gentle on the skin.

While there are many positives
about waxing, many women opt
out of it due to pain. Waxing is a
painful process. But the results
are definitely worth the pain. No
other procedure gives smooth
skin and guarantees 100% hair
removal. In fact, you will not
notice any hair growth for at
least a month at most times.

That is why women are opting
for waxing for the bikini areas.

leaves the area looking hairless
and smooth. Shaving might be a
painless alternative but it leaves
the skin rough and because the
roots are not removed, the hair
grows out a bit coarse.

completely from the roots at one
go itself for more effective
waxing and less pain.

The area may turn red due to
the procedure but the swelling
should come down in a couple of
hours. Use a good moisturizer to
reduce the swelling and
discomfort. Make sure to use a
fragrance-free moisturizer
because you will be applying it
in a sensitive area.

Better still, use fresh aloe vera
gel. It will reduce the
inflammation and redness.

the swelling is by using used tea
bags. Take a used tea bag and
