Stay Hydrated for Better Waxing Results

Stay Hydrated for Better Waxing Results

You can add another item to water’s long list of benefits: better waxing results!

It’s a no-brainer that staying hydrated does wonders for your body and mind, but many are surprised to learn that it improves their waxing experience, too. When you’re not getting enough water, your skin tightens and makes it harder to wax effectively. Not only does dehydration interfere with results, it can actually cause more pain!

Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink, because you’re already dehydrated by then. Keeping a reusable water bottle with you throughout the day can help you stay hydrated. Especially in the days leading up to your home waxing session, drink water regularly and limit alcohol intake. Alcohol can dehydrate you and tighten the skin, leading to more pain while waxing.

Not only does water decrease pain while waxing, it decreases any pain that might linger afterwards! Staying hydrated helps your skin stay moisturized and comfortable. Do yourself a favor and follow this advice because the benefits are huge! Staying hydrated helps the wax from the waxup home waxing kit adhere to the skin by keeping it plump, improving results.

It’s common knowledge that eight glasses a day is a good amount of water, but some people need more. Listen to your body and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to have a drink. Fruits and vegetables contain a lot of water and add plenty of healthy nutrients to your diet, nourishing your body and mind as well. In addition, hunger is often just thirst. So when you feel hungry, have a couple glasses of water before eating. Not only does this help you stay hydrated, it helps you know when you’re really hungry! And when you get your exercise, don’t forget to drink water before, during, and after your workout. 

Water is truly your best friend. Let’s raise a glass to that!
