The Best Waxes for the Bikini Area
October 16, 2019Waxing is amazing because it allows you a longer period of a smooth and hair-free sensation down there. But as it's obvious, a variety of factors come into play to get good results. It's extremely important that you go with a quality professional, but some people don't know that choosing the correct wax can actually make the whole difference. Some people claim that soft waxes work great for that area, some others swear by hard body waxes. Let's settle the issue and learn about the best waxes for the bikini area.
The Best Waxes for the Bikini AreaWhen it comes to waxing, not just any wax is good enough. As a trustworthy esthetician, make sure that you use only professional waxes. What's more, they should be suitable for sensitive skin and contain pure natural ingredients with soothing properties.
High-quality resins also ensure clean application and removal. The intimate area is difficult to wax, so highly malleable waxes behave better. Last but not least, your esthetician will probably use hard wax instead of soft wax, because it shrink-wraps the hair, making it easier to remove and not sticking to the skin, thus causing less tugging and pain.
Here is a selection of the best waxes for bikini area:
Cotton Oil WaxCotton oil has strong moisturizing and antioxidant properties. It contains a high amount of vitamin E, which protects the skin and aids in wound healing. These characteristics turn cotton oil into an ideal ingredient for the sensitive intimate area.
Finewax/Cerapiel is infused with cotton oil, so it has all the benefits of this ingredient. Besides, it has a low melting point (for less discomfort), maximum workability (for easier application), and gentleness on the skin. You can find this wax as hard wax beads or in a can, with the same quality and properties.
Lotus Flower BeadsStill in tune with natural ingredients, there's lotus flower extract. If you want a delicate wax for the intimate area, try this wonderful ingredient that will soothe, hydrate, and condition skin. It has a delicious fragrance and transports you to a relaxing atmosphere.
Ayurveda beads are based on lotus flower extract and guarantee effective waxing on sensitive skin. Get these hard wax beads and complement the line with the roll-on cartridge and the pre-depilatory and post-depilatory lotion as well.
Champagne-Fraises Wax JarMany clients will appreciate a single-use wax jar for their intimate waxing treatment. If you are an esthetician looking for new options to provide a comfortable intimate waxing experience to your clients, try the Champagne-Fraises wax jar. This creamy wax comes in a microwavable container that provides the easiest wax prep.
These ingredients together leave skin toned and bright while respecting sensitive areas. The treatment can be complemented with other options, like roll-ons, hard wax beads, and a post-depilatory tonic.
Marshmallow WaxThe main ingredient in this wax is milk extract. It treats sensitive skin gently thanks to its protective and moisturizing properties. Its elasticity and creaminess provide very clean hair removal, and its low melting point causes the least possible discomfort on skin.
Try Sweet Dreams, a super elastic and deliciously creamy wax with a candy fragrance that will work wonderfully for intimate treatments.
Basics for Bikini WaxingIntimate waxing should fulfill a few important requirements to be safe and successful.
- Encourage your client to choose the type of waxing they want beforehand so that they don't feel at a loss over what they're getting done, especially if it's their first time. There are different styles. Let's take a brief look at them:
- Basic bikini: removes only any hair on the groins that would peek out of undies or a swimsuit.
- Full bikini: removes hair on the groins and a bit more on the outer labia.
- Brazilian: removes all hair, including hair in the rear. Usually leaves only a strip of hair on the mons pubis If the client wants.
- Exfoliate at least three days prior (never on the same day, not to over-irritate skin)
- Show up freshly showered and if possible, don't go if you're in her period (it could be more painful, and it might get uncomfortable with an abundant period)
- Wear loose-fitting clothes in breathable fabrics to avoid chafing and irritation.
- Don't use fragrances or harsh detergents on the area.
- Look out for rashes, pimples, or signs of infection and if you find any, delay your appointment.

How a Bikini Wax Appointment Should GoA bikini wax appointment is supposed to go like this:
- Once you get there, ask a few questions to your client and answer any they might have about skin health and their expectations of the procedure. This will help the client clarify any possible impediment for the procedure and help you dispel doubts and feel more confident.
- Provide the client with a modesty towel and probably with disposable undies.
- Proceed to start the treatment by inspecting the area, then disinfecting with a pre-depilatory and applying powder to absorb excess moisture if necessary.
- The application of the wax starts, always in the direction of hair growth. The skin is held taut and the wax ripped off against the direction of hair growth.
- The area is cleaned with a post-depilatory product that soothes the irritation and protects the skin.
- Instruct your client on how to take care of your freshly waxed skin. The basic after wax care includes avoiding sun, seawater or chlorine exposure, harsh detergents, tight clothes, heavy sweating, and intimate activities for at least 48 hours after waxing. These precautions will allow the skin to heal more quickly and avoid the risk of infection or irritation.
