The One Thing You Should Never Do Before (And After) Getting A Bikini Wax

For most people, getting a bikini wax isn’t the most comfortable situation. Obviously, ripping a hair follicle from your body (especially an extra sensitive place) isn’t exactly pain-free. There are most definitely precautionary steps you can take to minimize the pain of a bikini wax. However, there is one thing you should never do before and after getting a bikini wax.

It’s essential your lady parts are clean for your waxer. On that note, avoid the gym before and after getting a wax. This is crucial, ladies. Here’s why:

Before: Sweating before going to get a bikini wax isn’t ideal. “Sweat may interfere with the wax adhering to the hair,” Melanie Gilliland, European Wax Center’s chief wax expert and educator and a licensed esthetician, told the Huffington Post.

After: Gilliland says, “Working out right after may cause an adverse reaction to your freshly waxed skin.” Also, sweating in tight-fitting clothing can cause friction, which causes irritation. Bacteria is more prone to get inside within the first 24 hours. Experts say you should avoid exercising 24-48 hours after a wax in order to let the area fully heal. Plus, you’re going to be sensitive so it probably won’t be comfortable running or spinning.

Now you have an excuse to skip the gym!
