How to Avoid Bruising from Waxing


While bruising from waxing most commonly happens when taking out coarse hair, like in the bikini area, but can show up in other zones.

Prevent Bruising from Waxing:

If you’re waxing at home, make sure to hold skin very taut. Ask for someone’s help if you’re having a problem getting skin taut and waxing at the same time. Be sure you’re using the right thickness of wax on hair, otherwise the extra force to remove the excess wax can cause the bruising.

If you don’t ‘bruise easy’ but a professional leaves your black and blue time and again, then it might be time to seek out another technician.

Other issues from waxing like ingrown hairs, pain, bumps, pimples and more can also occur.
