There's no denying that a Brazil wax, also known as a bikini wax, is the quickest and least-bumpy way to smooth things out below the waist.
That being said, we understand that, no matter how experienced you are, dealing with Brazilian waxing can be a nerve-racking experience. So, here are a few things that a bikini waxing expert desires they could tell you before you lay down on the table.
Nobody is passing judgment on your vulva
First and foremost, "don't be concerned about the appearance of your vulva." Waxer has seen people of all sizes and colors on a daily basis, and it is their job to make you look and feel better about yourself. So, if you're self-conscious about the state of your genital area, keep in mind that you're dealing with professionals who are here to help you, not to judge you.
Before using any product for your genital area, tread cautiously
Since the skin in the pubic area is more sensitive than other areas of the body, you should avoid using any substances that may be irritating to the skin or harsh to the area, such as artificial fragrances and dyes, parabens, and phthalates.
There is no need for twitching (not even the tiniest hair)
Plucking hair from your genital area can be painful and time-consuming. Plucking can cause skin redness, swelling, itching, irritation, and damage. It can also cause ingrown hairs (hair curling backward or sideways under the skin) and infection.
If you don't have time for salons and parlors, shaving is another option. However, you should never shave before your appointment. If you are shaving your pubic area then keep these things in mind if you want to avoid razor bumps.
Use a high-quality razor.
Warm water should be used to clean your bikini area.
Use a high-quality shaving cream or gel that contains natural moisturizers like olive oil, shea butter, and coconut oil.
Replace the razor blades on a regular basis.
If you're a newbie and worried about the pain, know that a bikini wax isn't a paid vacation, but it'll probably be better than you think. " It won't be as bad as you think it will be. The worst part for first-time waxers is the high level of expectation that exists before you even enter the room. So, the key is to expect less and to wish for a professional, the act will be much faster and less painful."
No Zumba before the appointment
If you go straight from dance class to the salon, your esthetician will undoubtedly have a difficult time dealing with your sweaty genital area.
You should also pay attention to how long you should wait after waxing before breaking out in a sweat. Yes, it's inconvenient when wax gets in the way of working out, but sweat can cause irritation to your skin. Avoid any kind of physical activity for 24 hours after waxing. Remember, "the less heat you bring to the skin, the better!"
So, that’s all from our side. The last piece of advice we would like to give is don't be too rough on your skin, and try to visit the best salon in your area to speak with a salon specialist. Brazilian waxing may appear painful, but it is valuable since it tries to teach you to be gentle with your body. Remember to appreciate your own beauty.
