Do you get sleepless nights thinking about your upcoming Brazilian waxing appointment? Well, you’re not alone!
Having said that, waxing your bikini line has far more benefits than shaving. Waxing tears hair right at the root and takes longer for the hair to grow back. It may be two or three weeks or more before you notice a significant re-growth of hair. Whereas, with shaving, you will notice stubble in a day or two. Furthermore, you don’t want to reach out for a razor in the scorching summers, do you? Therefore, we’ve got you covered with excellent tips for a smoother Brazilian waxing experience....
- Prep well in advance
- Don’t rub ice before your appointment
- Avoid alcohol
- Soothe your skin with a cold pack post your waxing session
- Enjoy a warm bath before your appointment
- No caffeine please
Prep well in advance
For your Brazilian waxing experience to go smooth and painless, firstly, inculcate the habit of exfoliating on a daily basis, as doing so reduces ingrowth. Secondly, avoid using a razor because your hair should be at least one-quarter of an inch, for wax to catch the hair and leave a clean area once ripped off.
Don’t rub ice before your appointment
If you think rubbing ice will numb the area and reduce pain during the procedure, you’re wrong. The ice will in fact tighten up and close the pores, thereby making waxing even more difficult.
Did you know? Alcohol tightens the pores, thereby making the hair removal process difficult and furthermore painful. So, avoid alcoholic drinks a day prior to your Brazilian waxing appointment. Also, make sure you stick to your waxing schedule. Get a Brazilian wax done every 4-6 weeks, depending on the growth of your hair.
Soothe your skin with a cold pack post your waxing session
Your skin may feel itchy and irritating after your waxing sesh, especially in summers. To soothe irritated skin, use a cold pack on the area to reduce inflammation and to close the pores. Follow it up with a moisturiser and wear loose clothing for the next two days to prevent from chafing.
Enjoy a warm bath before your appointment
We all dream of a painless Brazilian waxing experience. Well, here’s how you can reduce the pain. Right before your appointment, soak in a warm bath for about 15-20 minutes. This will not just open up the pores but also, make the hair softer and waxing less painful.
No caffeine please
Skip coffee on the morning of your waxing appointment. Since your vaginal area is already sensitive, coffee makes the skin furthermore sensitive.
