All that you Need to Know About Bikini Brazilian Wax :Hey gorgeous! Last month, I got a Brazilian Wax done. (I KNOW RIGHT!)I was scared and worried about how it would be! So I read everything I could find online. It’s only understandable that you would feel the same way during your first time. So don’t worry, I decided to compile all the important information about the process and the aftercare! This is going to be a ride.Gathering the courage to get a Brazilian Wax is hard enough. But don’t worry, for we are all here with you! Thousands of women have done it before and you can do it too. Yay to us!
(Boys, sorry. This one is not for you.)
What is a Brazilian Wax?
In simple terms: It waxes -everything- on your body. It leaves your entire pubic area bare! (Your butt included.) Usually, this is preferred to shaving because it’s long-lasting. It can have effects ranging from 2-4 weeks.
Spoiler Alert: It may not be a fun experience for you.
Why should I get it?
- Okay, it completely depends on YOU.
- You will have a smoother skin afterward. (Believe me.)
- The next growth will be thinner and softer. Isn’t that why we all shave?!
- It helps cleanse the skin by removing lifeless skin cells.
Can I get it done during my periods?
A lot of women would prefer not getting the wax done during their menstrual cycle. Let’s face it, period cramps are hard enough to deal with. Plus, don’t let the person waxing you down there feel super weird about it! However, if you have to, you can get it done during your period. Wear a tampon. (Duh!)
How to prepare for the wax?
- Shower before the scheduled appointment. A warm shower will open up your pores and exfoliating it to make the process less painful.
- Waxing works best when the skin is dry, so apply lots of baby powder.
- Be comfortable with the idea of exposing your lower body. Believe me; the person waxing you has done this a 100 times before. Don’t be nervous. It’s just their job. I felt quite weird too so I kept talking. A LOT.
- Having hair ripped out of your body is painful, but er, the pain can be managed. However, if you already have issues with getting your legs and hands waxed, this may not be a good idea.
- If you want, pop a pain killer a few hours before the process. But I would not recommend doing this.
- Don’t shave 2 weeks before your scheduled appointment. Your hair should be at least 1/4th inch long.
How do I bear the PAIN?
- Well, you do know what happens. Be prepared for the pain. It will come.
- Talk, it will help you distract yourself.
- Inhale when the wax is applied to your skin and exhale when it is removed.
- Do whatever the person says.
What happens after?
- Your skin will be red and irritated. Wear loose clothing for the next 3-4 days.
- Let your skin completely heal before you start wearing tights.
- Keep moisturizing your skin.
- Apply Aloe Vera Gel or Ice whenever your skin hurts.
- Exfoliate your skin every 2-3 days to remove the dead skin.
- Avoid any sweaty activities and places.
Okay, listen up. You have to relax. A professional will be handling you during this time so just chill out, girl. It’s going to be okay. This is just pampering, right? We love that! Tell me how it goes?
