GETTING a bikini wax can be nerve-wracking, awkward and uncomfortable, but have you ever wondered what your waxer is thinking?

One bikini waxer from Chicago has revealed the secret trick she uses when a client comes in with a bad smell.
It’s really simple but very clever.
The professional waxer, who calls herself ‘thepubestylist’, shared her hack on TikTok.
She was asked: ‘The real question is what do you do with a client with a foul smell?’ to which she uploaded the video with the caption ‘You got 2 options here. Lighting a candle in your treatment room helps too.’
She said: “How to deal with other people’s body odour… I either hold my breath a lot, or, I have a little trick that my best friend’s wife taught me.
“She does this because she’s in the medical field.
“So underneath your mask, you’re gonna put a little bit of Vicks.
“Hispanics swear by this.
“We use it for everything and now we’re gonna use it to cover up a bad stench.
“So just take a little bit, this stuff is spicy.”
We then see her put a little bit of Vicks on her nostrils.
She continues: “Rub it in and put your mask on.
“It’s like a minty wonderland under here.”
The majority of us only ever use Vicks for a bad cold or a blocked nose, but now we’ve seen it all.
The video has quickly racked up a whopping 4.3million views.
Many TikTok users were impressed with this hack and took to the comments to express this.
One person commented: “Yes! Vicks smells so great.”
Another said: “Vicks is the trick! Been doing it my 14 years of waxing.”
A third added: “This is so useful WHAT.”
Many TikTok users revealed that they also use this hack in a variety of other professions.
One person said: “Yes! Cops have actually done that for years when going into really bad death scenes… Who would’ve known Vicks could be used for so many things!”
Another added: “I used to be a dental assistant and I’d do this.”
A third commented: “This works wonders for middle school teachers too.”
