Pregnancy is a rollercoaster of emotions, cravings, and (let’s be real) some unexpected hair growth in peculiar places. If you’re pregnant and pondering whether to book a wax or not, you’ve come to the right place. Read on, mama!
What Pregnant Moms Need to Know About Waxing
First things first: Is it safe? Good news! In most cases, waxing during pregnancy is perfectly safe. But there are a couple things you should consider before booking your appointment:
- Skin Sensitivity: Pregnancy hormones can make your skin more sensitive and reactive, which might make waxing a bit more ouchy than usual. Just let your Waxx Specialist know you’re expecting – they’ll know exactly what to do to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your appointment.
- Sign-Off From Your Doc: While getting waxed is perfectly safe for almost every pregnant woman, there may be exceptions. Be sure to check with your doctor before booking your wax, just in case there’s a reason to wait until post-pregnancy to get your smooth on.
The Glow-rious Benefits of Waxing for Moms-to-Be
Now that we’ve gotten through the not-so-fun words of caution, let’s talk about the good stuff! There are some fantastic benefits of waxing while pregnant:
- Feeling Refreshed and Fab: Pregnancy comes with its own special glow… along with swelling, exhaustion and a lingering not-so-fresh feeling. But a little self-care and a good waxing session can go a long way. You’ll walk out of the salon with smooth skin, some extra glow, and a whole lot of confidence!
- Longer-Lasting Smoothness: Shaving can feel like a never-ending battle, especially when your belly’s forcing you to play peek-a-boo with your toes. Waxing offers longer-lasting smoothness, which means less time in the shower and more time to focus on feeling baby kicks and choosing nursery décor.
- No Ingrown Hair Drama For This Mama: Your body is going through enough right now without having to endure the extra hassle of painful ingrown hairs and irritation. Waxing pulls hair out at the root, which reduces the likelihood of ingrowns (and leaves you extra smooth!).
So there you have it, beautiful soon-to-be moms! Waxing during pregnancy is safe and highly recommended by your Fairy Waxxmother – just make sure to have a quick chat with your healthcare provider first.
