Whether it is for a holiday or you are just trying to find new ways to keep neat and tidy down there, a bikini wax is one of the best ways to be trim and confident whatever you are wearing.
If you have never had a any type of bikini waxing before then it may be because you have heard or read uncomfortable stories from other people but we are here to set you mind at ease – it really is not that bad! It is a quick reliable method to get rid of as much hair as you want down there and is so much better than shaving.
Why get a Bikini Wax?
We have all shaved our legs, our underarms and perhaps our forearms before, so we know that this is quite a painless but time-consuming process. The hair itself also grows back quite quickly and it is hard to confirm whether we have missed a spot or not! But shaving our arms and legs is relatively easy, shaving your bikini line however is a completely different experience altogether. There is often razor burn, the skin becomes bumpy and uncomfortable while the hair grows back, and it grows back quickly. A bikini wax on the other hand, is a quick whip with the wax and you are smooth and burn free for weeks.
Constant maintenance of the bikini area is just a lot of effort if you don’t have it waxed. For those who swim regularly, go to the gym regularly, travel or just like to make sure there are no stray hairs when they are wearing lovely underwear waxing is the way forward.
Does a Bikini Wax Hurt?
We are not going to lie, yes it hurts, but just a little bit! If you have had other parts of your body waxed, legs or underarms for example, then you know how it feels. If you have never had a wax before then perhaps try your legs first before going on to your bikini area just so you get a feel for it first.
Once you get waxed regularly you get used to the sensation and it hurts less over time, in any event it is a very quick process and the team at Cecily Day Spa in Berkhamsted are experts at putting you at your ease so you don’t feel embarrassed when getting waxed in an intimate area and at reducing any pain felt as much as possible. Cecily also offers Lycon Hot wax to reduce any pain even further.
Benefits of a Bikini Wax
- Stubble-free – waxing lasts anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 weeks, depending on the natural growth of your body’s hair. So that silky soft feeling right as you rinse off your legs from shaving is what you will experience for weeks on end for your pelvic area and bikini line.
- Cleaner, healthier skin –No or less hair means that sweating and daily oils aren’t clogging your pubic hair and smothering your pores from breathing, meaning fewer bacteria will grow.
- Less Hair Regrowth –Monthly, routine waxes can actually reduce the amount of hair that grows back.
- No redness or razor burn bumps – while the first day of waxing will certainly inflame the skin and turn it a nice deep pink shade, that is only temporary and can last as little as an hour or two.
