Pre & Post Brazilian Waxing

These Brazilian waxing tips will help you prepare your skin, take the pain factor down and minimize possible bumps and irritation afterwards. A lot of women opt for this service because they like the feeling of the entire Brazilian area being totally, or almost hair-free. While you need to be cautious any time you remove hair, because of its specialty nature, it should be treated with extra care.

Pre Brazilian Waxing Prep:

  • Particularly for women. Your skin is often more sensitive the time near your period and waxing can be more painful than normal. So your appointment shouldn’t be any closer than a couple of days before or after your period. It is not a good idea to get a Brazilian wax while you’re on your period.
  • Cleanliness. Shower and lightly exfoliate your entire bikini area right before your appointment using warm, not hot water. Make sure you’re extra clean.
  • Skip this step. Don’t use any lotions in Brazilian area.
  • Hair for now. You need some hair growth for the wax to hold onto. If it’s too long, you may want to trim a little.
  • Pain preventers. Take an aspirin or Tylenol 30- 45 minutes before your appointment if you’re worried about pain. The type of wax I use is especially for that area so all you will feels is a quick sting.

Post Brazilian Waxing Care:

  • Watch your fashion choices. Don’t wear tight panties for the next few days.
  • Hands off. Keep hands away from touching freshly waxed skin, as this can encourage irritation or small pimples.
  • Opt for a shower. Don’t take a hot bath for the rest of the day.
  • Too hot. No tanning beds, saunas or steam rooms for the next two days.
  • Sexual Activity. Sexual activity should be avoided for at least 24 hours ONLY if your skin feels extremely sensitive. Aloe Vera helps soothe and calm the area if this happens (which is very rare). This is great to help prevent ingrown hair.



More Brazilian Wax Benefits

If you are considering getting a Brazilian wax, here are some fun perks:

Waxing is hygienic. It is the pubic region that is handled and pubic hair collects germs that can cause bad odors. Waxing your entire pubic region will dramatically reduce the risk of these problems. (Shaving can cause bumps, ingrown hairs and itching).

It reduces the effect of perspiration in that area. The area between your legs perspires and if you have pubic hair, the bacteria can nestle in that hair. If you are void of hair, the perspiration will be absorbed directly into your underwear, minimizing the chance of a bacterial infection.

Some say it is sensual as they experienced more intense orgasms after this type of waxing. Now that’s a major perk! 😉

Many men (and women) love them. In one poll, 91% of men said that they found it more attractive and erotic.

The waxing takes at least 15 to 30 minutes to get done, which is fairly quick. You’ll feel a quick sting and it’s over before you know it! Keep your mind on the results! 😉

The effects can last between 4 to 8 weeks. Shaving barely lasts one day. This is because the hair is removed from the root or the follicle, instead of cutting it at the level of the skin as with shaving.

Any discomfort you may have felt during the first session is diminished each time you get one and your body gets used to it as the hair grows back finer and thinner.

All in all, the experience really isn’t as horrific as you think. So…what are you waiting for? Give it a try!
