Apply the wax in the direction of the hair growth using a spatula. Put a strip of fabric over the wax and press it making sure that it is sticking on the skin. Remove it quickly and at the same time, press on the skin to break the pain. Keep any leftovers in the fridge so you can wax your legs anytime.
