Self-waxing kits are a great way to keep up with your aesthetic without breaking the bank and with a bit of practice, you can get really great results. It all comes down to choosing the right kit to suit your needs and a little practice.
When choosing a self-waxing kit, there are a few things that you need to consider first. What areas of your body do you intend to wax? Once that is settled you’ll need a warming kit that contains everything you need to get the job done. Now it is time for the appropriate wax.

If you’re unsure, or if you plan on waxing everything, go with a versatile hard wax bead that is slated for face and body. These hard wax beads are great for beginners because they’re easy to measure and give you a chance to experiment with waxing different areas conveniently. As a bonus, hard wax requires no strips.
Pick An All Inclusive Kit
Choose a self-waxing kit that has everything you need. Once you settle on a type of wax, pick out a self-waxing kit that includes all of the necessary items to get the job done. Even the most basic kits should include: a wax warmer and heating instructions, a removable heat proof tin, a few applicators, removal strips, and wax removal oil or lotion.
Your kit will probably come with beads, but be sure the beads included are right for the area you need. These basics should be enough for a simple wax job and give you some experience. If you are planning on waxing on a regular basis, stock up on applicators, gloves, and a few different wax beads.
Choose A Reputable Product
Before you purchase your kit, you should always read the reviews for the company. There are a multitude of self-waxing kits available. When you find a kit that fits your needs, take a few extra minutes and read through the reviews to hear what the customers have to say. Pay attention to what the user experience is for some extra confidence in the unit you are purchasing.
All wax is not the same. Look for wax that has been safely tested and hypoallergenic before applying it to your skin. For delicate areas, be sure to use the product specifically recommended for the area. Read through the instructions carefully, and set up a workspace in a clean, well-lit area with everything you need. Always do a test strip on your skin before you begin waxing.
