If you're looking to get rid of your tummy trail, consider waxing your stomach -- but without the trip to a salon or the price tag. At-home waxing strips are easier to use than ever, with no-mess strips that come with the wax already on the strips. In just a few seconds, the wax is ready -- without needing your stove or microwave to heat up -- and your stomach hair will be gone for the next four to six weeks.
Things You'll Need
- Wax strip kit
- Baby oil
- Cotton ball
Choose a wax strip that is slightly larger for your stomach. Your wax strip box will have several different sizes of strips for different areas of the body, like your eyebrows or bikini area.
Rub the strip in your hands quickly to warm the wax in between the plastic strips.
Peel the plastic strips apart. The wax will be on the inside of both plastic strips.
Place the first strip, wax-side down, on your problem area. Rub the back of the wax strip onto your skin.
Pull on your skin, below the strip, to hold your skin taut with your non-dominant hand. With your other hand, rip the strip off your stomach, pulling the hair.
Repeat Steps 4 and 5 with the second wax strip to ensure all the hair is gone.
Pour a little baby oil on a cotton swab, and rub your waxed stomach with it. This will not only remove excess wax, but it will also soothe and moisturize your skin.
