Everything You Need To Know About Brazilian Waxing
Posted on February 13, 2019
With the day of love just around the corner, we might all be thinking about cleaning up down there. Brazilian waxing is nothing to be ashamed of, and it’s not as terrible as it’s made out to be, either. It’s time to get rid of the taboo! Here is everything you need to know about Brazilian waxing!
What’s first?Do some research when looking for a place to go! Getting waxed in such a delicate and sensitive area calls for some due diligence. Make sure the place you choose is clean, sanitary, and you are cared for by a licensed aesthetician. Read up on reviews, and ask around about some good recommendations!
What about the pain?There’s one girl saying that her Brazilian went great and she barely felt a thing. There’s another girl that nearly fainted and has sworn to never get a Brazilian again. This really just depends on you! We all have different levels of pain tolerance. Check in with yourself and try to assess whether you think you can handle the pain or not. If you think you can, go for it!
What do I do before?The best thing you can do to prep for your Brazilian wax is to let it be! The longer your hair, the easier it is for the wax to grip and pull the follicle from the skin. It is best to avoid using any lotions or body oils as well, as this might clog pores and/or make the removal process more difficult. Another option is to exfoliate before the appointment. Removing as much of that dead skin from the area as possible and softening the follicles will helps things go along smoother and even help lessen the pain.
What if there are ingrowns?This does not happen for everyone, but some people are more prone to ingrown hairs after a waxing session. No worries, though. Ingrown hairs are pretty easy to take care of, especially since there are so many products out there created to help get rid of them! Typically redness and bumps will go away within a few days. If it continues and ingrowns appear, try applying aloe vera gel to the area to cool it down and soothe irritation. If you’re looking for other products to help, Bee Waxed Cosmetics’ Trio Kit is designed specifically to help soothe any ingrowns, redness, and irritation caused by hair removal. It also helps to avoid tight clothing after you wax and let the skin breathe.
How long will it last?Aestheticians will typically say the wax will last for 4-6 weeks, but it really depends on the client. If you have a faster hair growth rate, your Brazilian may only last you 3-4 weeks. That’s still a better bargain than shaving every other day if you choose to go through the pain!
Final thoughts?Relax! The aesthetician's are just doing their job. It may be uncomfortable to undress in front of a stranger and spread for them, but they’ve seen it all and they’re not there to judge you. The process should be quick and professional. If it helps, try making conversation to make things more comfortable.
