If you’re getting anything waxed – from your lips to your legs – how can you make it hurt less? Schedule an appointment in the morning. Research at the National Institute of Mental Health found people are significantly less sensitive to pain in the morning than in the afternoon. That’s because our cortisol levels are higher… that’s a stress hormone that has anti-inflammatory benefits. Not only will you feel less pain, but you’ll cut down on any stinging, redness, and swelling.
The same goes for guys getting their chest or back waxed. Do it in the morning.
