  • Waxing?? Does it hurts?

  • take some ibuprophin 1 hour before waxing

    • Ibuprofen might help but you can't apply anything before waxing because then the wax won't stick to the hair. You have to clean and dry the area well with no lotions or soaps left behind. Many waxing kits have their own cleanser as well as a topical analgesic (pain killer) to apply afterward. During the process you just have to grit your teeth and count to 3... and then count to 3 again.... remind yourself that this time you will pull the strip off and count to 3 again... Eventually you accomplish it.
