Hot waxing is great for removing hair in the bikini area and the upper lip.

Hot Waxing can be done at home or by a professional in a salon. Hot waxing can be messy and painful and may leave some hairs behind because they can break off. Infection is one side effect to watch for. If the wax is too hot, you may get a burn.  You should not use this method if you also use certain types of prescription acne creams (such as Retin-A) or take isotretinoin. If you do, the wax will pull your skin off.

Tips: Best time to wax is when your skin is tight - that is usually after taking a bath or shower
