The quote "beauty is pain" must refer to bikini waxing, because there are few things more stressful than going in to take it all (or most of it) off. But waxing down there doesn't have to be a pain in the you-know-what. With these simple reminders, you can alleviate uncomfortable feelings you may have with hair removal of the waxing kind.
OK, so this conversation is filled under the Shouldn't But Would category – as in we shouldn't talk about ingrown hairs but we're going to. Because everyone (yes, everyone) gets them. They're an occupational hazard of any type of hair removal, be it waxing, shaving or the shaving-in-between-waxing that we're all guilty of. I have a bad habit of picking at them until I get the trapped hair out which is so not cool. Instead what you should do is invest in an anti-ingrown treatment such as Veet Anti Ingrown Hair Cream ($14.95), Kalo Ingrown Hair Treatment ($52.50) or Waxaway Ingrown Hair Serum ($13.45). What do you do when you spot one?
