Let’s be completely honest here – Brazilian wax isn’t going to be easy; it’s painful and not fun at all. But if you hate having hair on your lady parts and are tired of reaching for the razor every other day, then book yourself an appointment today.
Whether it’s your first time getting waxed down there or you’re a regular, these are certain steps you can follow before and after the waxing session to help the process flow smoother...
Let your hair grow
In order for the hair to come out perfectly it is important for them to be at least a quarter inch long. Resist the urge to shave for at least 2-3 weeks as the wax won’t pick up your hair if they’re too short.
Take a shower that day
Although this seems really obvious, taking a shower on the day of your Brazilian wax appointment has its advantages. It helps open up your pores, making the actual process less painful. Additionally, scrubbing the area using a mild exfoliant removes any dead skin cells that have collected in the area to prevent them from clogging hair follicles prevent ingrown hair.
Pop some pain relievers
Whether it’s your first time getting a Brazilian wax or your threshold for pain is low, you can pop an over-the-counter pain killer tablet to help reduce surface pain.
Avoid working out right after
Waxing in that area makes your skin sensitive and irritated. The sweating and friction while working out tends to aggravate this issue. It is recommended to avoid any sort of strenuous activity for at least 24-hours after a Brazilian wax sesh.
Wear loose clothes
Friction is not your friend post waxing hence we highly recommend wearing loose, breezy clothes. Tight fitting clothes make it difficult for your skin to breathe, delaying the natural healing process of the skin.
Do not swim or sunbathe
It is best to avoid swimming or sunbathing for about 24 hours post waxing. Your skin becomes really sensitive and raw after it has been waxed and swimming, exfoliation and sunbathing is only going to make it worse.
