Maintaining a smooth and flawless bikini area is a challenging.

What’s summer without those trendy and sensuous bikinis?

Whether you are going to a pool party or a honeymoon at a beach destination, bikini is one piece that you have been waiting for, right?

You have worked hard to get that perfect look, by maintaining a diet regime and putting up hours in the gym.

But there is one thing that has got the potential to spoil the sport-dark and dull looking bikini area.

Here are some tips to maintain a smooth and flawless bikini area.

Cleansing And Hygiene:

Excessive sweating leads to infection in that area, so you should always keep the area clean.

Pick a mild cleanser, as they are not very harsh on this sensitive area and keeps it infection-free simultaneously.

  • Use Wet Wipes

You can use wet wipes to keep the area clean and well-nourished. The wet wipes are quite handy as they can be easily carried in your handbag.

They also leave you feeling rejuvenated. They even keep the bikini area disinfected.

  • Powder Power

It’s highly important that the area is kept clean and dry, as excessive sweating can cause infections, rashes or skin irritation during these hot months.

Apply fragrance-free powder to absorb the excessive moisture.

  • Cotton Cools

Cotton lingerie is perfect for these hot months. It keeps you comfortable throughout the day and it is absolutely gentle for the skin.

Get Wonderful With Waxing:

Waxing gives you freedom from those unwanted hairs. It also gets you beach-ready in your sexy swimwear.

Hair in the bikini area can lead to a bacteria breeding ground, due to humidity and excessive sweating.

Various hair removing techniques and things to keep in mind before getting a bikini wax done:

  • Hot And Cold Wax

Hot and cold wax is time tested and trusted options for the upkeep of the bikini area.

However, it is highly important that you go to a professional for waxing.

  • Rica And Aloe Vera Wax

These waxes are less painful to the skin and give you smooth feel in minutes. They are mild and soothing.

They also help in getting rid of the ingrown hair.

Making The Waxing Procedure Less Painful And More Hygienic:

  • The wax should be applied in the direction of the hair, and pulled out from the opposite direction. This also makes the procedure less painful.
  • Always use a pre-wax lotion, which helps minimize pulling and tugging of the skin during waxing; and post-wax lotion, which disinfects the area after waxing.
  • Only use fresh wax in the bikini area.
  • You must use a disposal spatula so as to avoid infection in the bikini area.
  • Avoid the use of razors as it is a highly sensitive area and it can cause infection and make the hair grow dense.

Permanent Hair Removal:

Intense Pulsed Light is extremely safe and most widely recommended hair removal technique. It is highly recommended for hair removal in the bikini area.

It can give you a maximum coverage with the least pain, or you can say no-pain in comparison to other traditional methods of waxing.

It works smoothly on the hair and doesn’t involve deep penetration.
