Pregnancy beauty tip #2: Make waxing more manageable
First, the good news: With waxing, you don’t need to worry about scary chemicals; the wax itself is safe for skin because it’s made from natural ingredients like beeswax and tea tree oil. The bad news? Those high-level hormones could mean that the waxing process is more painful than usual. Make it easier for hair to come out by applying a warm compress before waxing, or ask your doctor about taking acetaminophen (aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen could increase your risk for miscarriage or birth defects). Another option: Skip the waxing all together in favor of threading or plucking facial hair and shaving your legs and bikini area.
