How to Wax Mens Legs?
Remove pot from heat and leave to cool. You should leave it for at least half an hour before you do anything else with it. Definitely do not apply the mixture to your legs yet! That will hurt.Transfer the wax into the jar or container. If you aren’t going to use it immediately that’s okay, but when you do want to use it make sure you put in microwave without the lid for 30-40 seconds or until the wax resembles a honey like state. If it becomes solid it’s much harder to spread out over your legs.
Test a small amount of the wax on your skin to see if you have an allergic reaction or sensitivity. Apply a little cooled wax to your body to test for a rash or redness. If there is none then you can continueWash your legs in warm water to relax the hairs. Pat off the water and apply baby powder. This isn’t necessary but it could help with the process and make your legs less sensitive.
Check your legs to see in which direction your hair is growing. See if the hair is growing all in one direction or in different patches. You are going to have to apply the wax and waxing strip in the direction of your hair growth.
Test the temperature of the wax by applying a little to your hand. If it feels warm, let it cool a bit more. An easy way to test when to use it is to stir it - if its too runny then chances are you must wait more.Apply a thin layer to your legs with the spatula in the direction of your hair growth. Only do this after it is sufficiently cooled. When you spread the wax in the direction of hair growth the hair should lay flat and smooth with no hairs poking up.
Apply the strip of cloth and rub/massage the strip on to the wax covered part of your leg. Rubbing it up and down is the best way. Now wait for wax to set or until you feel resistance when you try pulling the strip up.
Grab the strip by the end piece and then pull the strip away in the opposite direction of hair growth. Pull the skin taut by holding down on any loose skin with your hands before you do this. Do it as quickly as possible and in one clean piece. When pulled away properly, there should be little to moderate discomfort.
Repeat until your entire leg is hair free. Hopefully the process doesn’t take too long, but make sure that you are being thorough. There’s nothing worse than checking to see you missed a spot a few days later. Pull the skin taut by holding down on any loose skin with your hands.
Wash your legs with cold water, never with hot or warm water. Pat dry and apply generous amounts of moisturizer to relax your skin. Good job, you’ve waxed your legs using sugar wax!
