Before waxing the bikini line, it is important to prepare your skin to avoid minor inconveniences such as ingrown hairs. For this, we recommend that you perform a gentle exfoliation the day before waxing with fine enough grains so as not to attack this sensitive area.
After waxing, you think of moisturizing your skin (be careful, only the pubis and not the mucous membranes) with a soothing, fragrance-free body cream.
Pulsed light epilators
