Waxing is the most useful and beneficial depilation method. And luckily, there are some easy things you can do to minimize waxing pangs! We assure you that these steps will help:
Say no to alcohol, coffee, and smoking.
Hydration is key when it comes to reducing pain, so drink up! When you drink plenty of water, the skin is ready and plump, which allows for easier hair removal and a comfortable hair removal experience. But, you should stay away from alcohol and coffee especially on the day of waxing! While alcohol tightens your pores, these items and even smoking can cause your skin to be more sensitive.
Schedule your appointment.
There are 3 things to keep in mind about scheduling a waxing appointment: Do not schedule during or around the time of your period, also, not right before you plan to workout, and ensure you have waited long enough between waxes.
Why not schedule during or around the time of your period:
The threshold of pain is different for different people. But waxing will surely feel way more painful around and during your period as the skin seems to be more sensitive during that time so it’s best to plan for a wax during a different time of the month.
Why not right before you plan to workout:
If you’re planning on going to the gym, avoid working out for at least six to eight hours post-wax. Your skin will tend to be most sensitive at that time, ultimately leading to more pain. So, to avoid chafing at all costs, do not schedule your waxing appointment at least 8 hours before your workout regime!
Why ensure you have waited long enough between waxes:
Let your hair grow back to a quarter of an inch at least before scheduling your next appointment. If your hair is too short, the wax may not be as effective and if it's too long, you could end up experiencing more pain.
Different skin-types need different treatments.
Not all waxes are formulated and suitable for all skin types. Synthetic waxes are harsh, and sometimes they can even remove some of your skin. So before beginning to wax, choose the right wax for your skin.

Apart from the 3 main tips mentioned above, is another tip that is a no-brainer and that is:
To follow a proper Pre and Post-wax routine!
The marvels of Pre and Post-wax care are always marveled about. A day or 2 before your waxing appointment, remember to exfoliate your skin, which will prepare your skin for a comfortable and less painful depilation.
Also, remember to use pre and post-wax products. While pre-wax gels prepare your skin by removing excess oil from your skin, using an after wax oil cleanses your skin of any wax residues and thus prepares it to be moisturized. Moisturizing after waxing with a post-wax lotion will help to keep your skin hydrated, which helps with any discomfort and soothes the pain.
Waxing is the best hair removal method and shouldn’t be avoided due to fear of pain. Follow these tips to ensure your wax goes as smoothly and painlessly as possible. You’ll soon notice that waxing is much more comfortable and not as dreadful when you are well-prepared.
