Waxing can be painful, especially for those with sensitive skin. The best way to reduce the pain is to try and relax! This may be easier said than done but, according to many beauty practitioners, when a client is tense the follicle closes and the wax doesn’t reach the root of the hair.

Immediately after waxing it may help to apply gentle pressure to the area with your hands; icing the area can also help to ease the pain.

The more often you get a wax treatment, the more accustomed you’ll grow to the experience and the more pleasant it will become.
