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.
