How to Wax Your Arms and Legs

There’s no better feeling than having smooth legs under soft sheets. The only way to stay stubble-free is by waxing. Luckily, waxing your arms and legs is a breeze. Here’s why: 1) arms and legs are the easiest to reach 2) require less precision 3) is a less sensitive area to wax.

You aren’t a one-size-fits-all kind of gal and your waxing products should reflect that. Everything from your hair type, skin type, to your level of experience can help determine your winning product. Our Waxing Team has handpicked our top three waxing products for arms and legs waxing. Each designed to help with your individual waxing needs.

  • Always zip the strip parallel to the skin. Do not pull upwards.
