I’m not sure about it being dangerous – but i would be concerned that the products would react with the waxing products. 

I would just take some paracetamol +/- ibuprofen (careful if asthmatic) about 30mins – 1h prior to your wax. Also concentrate on your breathing, tell yourself in your head that this is going to hurt but i dont need to react to it, and it is soon over.

If none of that works for you – then just think of how great you are going to look on the beach fuzz-free!

Good luck

I wouldn’t go with a cream.  Creams usually = oil= wax not grabbing hairs = no a completely bare wax jib.  try taking a few Tylenol/Advil an hour before the waxing to dull the pain.  I try to stay away from hair removal of all forms (waxxing, threading, tweezing) when I’m PMSing because my pain threshold goes waaaay down.
